13:59 EDTEMCEMC technical notes ahead of earnings
The key feature on a long-term chart is a potential compound bearish head and shoulders pattern. Shares are directly on the neckline of that pattern ahead of earnings. A move below $24 would confirm that the pattern is active. Downside potential would be to the $16 area over time, presuming the pattern was not interrupted. If the news is a bullish surprise, resistance levels to watch as potential upside objectives are at $26.17, $27.73, and $29.04. A move above $27.50 that sustained for several months would void the head and shoulders pattern.

10:43 EDTEAZillow slides to 52-week low after Barclays cuts to sell
The shares of Zillow (Z) are falling after Barclays downgraded the stock to Underweight, the firm's equivalent of a "Sell" rating, citing increased competition in the "local" segment of the Internet market. Zillow's websites advertise homes that are up for sale. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors earlier today, Barclays analyst Christopher Merwin wrote that, heading into second quarter results, he does not recommend Internet stocks that have been "challenged" and have relatively "cheap" valuations. These valuations are only "cheap" based on consensus estimates that are probably too high, the analyst believes. Based on that criteria, he downgraded Zillow to Underweight from Equal Weight. He also used the same criteria to downgrade Yelp (YELP), whose website features user reviews of local businesses, to Equal Weight from Overweight. Both companies are facing an "atypical level" of competition, driven by a favorable venture capital funding environment, Merwin indicated. The competition has driven down the companies' multiples, he believes. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Merwin recommended that investors buy the shares of small and mid cap Internet companies whose estimates are just beginning to be revised upwards by analysts. He identified IAC (IACI), which owns several dating websites, as one stock in this category. IAC should benefit from increased monetization of its popular Tinder dating app and the stabilization of its core dating websites, the analyst contended. Also poised for further positive estimate revisions are video game makers Electronic Arts (EA) and Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Merwin believes. The companies' increased revenue from digital games should mitigate the risk they face from slowing software growth as sales of new consoles slow, the analyst believes. He noted that 50% of both companies' revenue are now generated from digital games and identified Electronic Arts and Activision Blizzard as two of his top ideas. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Zillow fell 5% to $79 after hitting a 52-week low of $76.82 earlier in the session. Meanwhile, Yelp slid 1.6% to $34.40, IAC fell fractionally to $83.83, Electronic Arts added about 1% to $74.15 and activision Blizzard rose 0.5% to $25.93.

05:44 EDTEAZillow Group downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Barclays
Barclays analyst Christopher Merwin downgraded Zillow Group (Z) to Underweight saying competition is increasing in local. Underweight is Barclays' equivalent to a sell rating. The real estate and rental marketplace owner closed Friday at $83.27. Merwin believes consensus growth estimates are likely too high heading into Zillow's Q2 results and cut his price target for the stock to $70 from $90. The analyst this morning also downgraded Yelp (YELP) to Equal Weight for similar reasons. His top U.S. Internet picks heading into Q2 earnings season are IAC (IACI), Activision Blizzard (ATVI) and Electronic Arts (EA). Merwin thinks Activision and Electronic Arts will receive more than half of their 2015 revenue from digital.

20:33 EDTBAMedia reports say Lockheed to buy UTX's Sikorsky
According to media reports, Lockheed Martin (LMT) has agreed to purchase United Technologies' (UTX) Sikorsky unit. The news comes after several months of speculation surrounding Sikorsky, and an announcement could be made just a day prior to second quarter earnings for both United and Lockheed. WHAT'S NEW: Reuters reported on Sunday that Lockheed Martin has agreed to buy Sikorsky Aircraft from United Technologies for over $8B, according to two sources, adding that the deal is set to be formally announced on Monday. The news was later echoed by Bloomberg, citing a person familiar with the talks. WHAT'S NOTABLE: United Technologies first reported that it was exploring strategic options for its Sikorsky unit on March 11. At the time, the company noted that options included a spinoff or a stand-alone public company, saying that the split could allow United "to better focus on providing high-technology systems and services to the aerospace and building industries." Following the announcement, UBS remarked that it was "not surprised" and reiterated a $136 price target on United shares. On May 20, the Wall Street Journal quoted sources as saying Boeing (BA), Airbus (EADSY) and Lockheed submitted bids for the helicopter maker, with a speculated deal thought to reach the $10B area. A June 9 report from Reuters added Textron (TXT) to the list of bidders. Today's news -- though unconfirmed by either United or Lockheed -- comes ahead of second quarter earnings reports for both companies scheduled for Tuesday, July 21. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Lockheed Martin declined 0.22% to $201.18 at the close of trading on July 17, while those of United Technologies fell 0.45% to $110.76.
