14:54 EDTORCLOracle technical comments ahead of results
In the past three months the stock has underperformed, falling by over 3%. The trading in shares has been relatively volatile, but within a narrow range largely contained by $40 at the low and $42 at the high. If the news is stronger than expected, particularly where outlook is concerned, there could be a run to the 52-week high at $43.19. That high is very close to the life highs for the shares at $46.18. We could see a range open up between the 52-week high and the life high if news exceeds expectations. If the news fails to meet investor expectations, a test down to the $40 area would appear very likely. A break below $40 would see next support at $38.34 and then at $37.08. The stock can be volatile around earnings, but gaps tend to be relatively small unless estimates are broken in extreme fashion, in either direction.
14:09 EDTVVUSVIVUS rallies, mean-reverting to intraday trend line
The shares have traded in an extremely wide range today on nearly 20 times daily average volume. An intraday trend line appears currently to be broken. That line is at $4.60 now, and projecting forward would be at the $4.80 area by the close. At the current price of $4.50, support is at $4.41 and then at $4.32.
