11:20 EDTNTAPNetApp technical comments ahead of earnings
In the prior three months the stock has outperformed the broader averages, trading up over 12.8%. The trend has been decidedly bullish in this interval without much volatility. This suggests investors and traders are comfortable with the company's prospects and the absence of a substantial short-base reinforces that outlook. When we look at a longer-term chart, it is apparent that the last three months has been a nearly symmetrical but inverse move of the previous quarter. A level that stands out clearly as a result of this six-month long dip and recovery is at $40. The stock would be back on a more neutral technical basis if it can retake and build on a move above the $40 level. And that would given the current price at $39.26 be an easy move if the fundamental news supports it. Additional resistance levels above $40 are at $41.57 and then at $44.32. Both of those levels are prior pivot points on a closing basis. If the news disappoints there are some well-defined levels from the last six months that could become downside objectives. A risk is that without much of a short-base, downside moves could be more extreme. On a scale of increasing disappointment, supports are at $38.12, $36.38, $35, and $33.72.

12:31 EDTAROAbercrombie upgraded at Stifel citing better assortment, trimmed costs
Shares of Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) were upgraded by research firm Stifel this morning, though the retailer's shares are slightly lower in early afternoon trading. WHAT'S NEW: Stifel analyst Richard Jaffe upgraded Abercrombie & Fitch to Buy from Hold, citing the retailer's better merchandise assortment and reshaped cost structure. Jaffe feels that Abercrombie & Fitch had been running with overblown expenses and believes that having a slimmer cost structure will allow the company to influence sales better and boost future EPS. The analyst raised his Q4 EPS estimate to $1.94 from $1.87, his FY14 EPS estimate to $2.50 from $2.43 and his FY15 EPS estimate to $3.40 from $3.14. Over the next year, Jaffe said that he expects A&F shares will be valued for the company's effort to win back customers at its Hollister and Abercrombie stores. Still, he said that Q3 could continue to be a struggle for the retailer due to external obstacles that are still a headwind. The firm maintains a $50 price target on the retailer's shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Analysts at Wunderlich also initiated coverage of the stock this morning with a Buy rating and a $48 price target. PRICE ACTION: During early afternoon trading, shares of Abercrombie & Fitch fell 9c, or 0.2%, to $41.47. OTHERS TO WATCH: Rivals to Abercrombie & Fitch include Aeropostale (ARO), Urban Outfitters (URBN), and American Eagle Outfitters (AEO).
