14:55 EDTAMZNVMware to face more competitive process for DOD contract, says Stifel
After government websites indicated that Citrix (CTXS), Amazon (AMZN) and others succeeded in getting the DoD to reconsider its awarding of a $1.6B, five-year contract to VMware (VMW), Stifel said it doesn't think VMware has necessarily lost the opportunity, but that the company will now likely face a more competitive bidding process to win the deal. The firm view this example as supporting its concerns that VMware's steps to become a more strategic vendor have the potential to be as much of a threat as an opportunity and Stifel maintains its Hold rating on the stock.

14:38 EDTFDXFedEx technical comments ahead of earnings
The shares have been trading in a range largely bound by $170 at the low and $180 at the high since December of last year. So well-defined is the range that the 50-day moving average has gone flat, neatly bisecting the range at $174.63. These bounds may help us better understand where the shares may move following results. A breakout above $180 on strong news or outlook would resolve this range bullishly. The life high at $183.51 would very likely be tested, opening up a run to the $185 to $190 area. When ranges resolve, they tend to exhibit strong price reactions which could easily exceed the reaction expected by straddle pricing. On neutral news, the stock may fall near the 50-day moving average. If the news is a bearish surprise, we could expect the low of the range to be tested at the $170 area. It would take a break below that range low to turn the trend to bearish. Next support in that event would be at $167.62.

14:21 EDTADBEAdobe technical comments ahead of results
The shares are trading close to the lifetime high at $80.30 ahead of earnings. On strong bullish news, a breakout above that life high would be highly probable, opening up a run to the $85 to $90 area. If the news is bearish, contrary to current expectations, the first significant test of support isn't until the 50-day moving average at $74.55. A breakdown below the 50-day would be bearish, breaking the longer-term uptrend. Next support below would be at $72.24 and then at the $70 area. The $70 level has previously been an important area of resistance and more recently support.
