12:50 EDTORCLEMC jumps after reports detail takeover talks
The shares of cloud application provider EMC (EMC) are rising in a down market after Wall Street Journal reported that the company had held talks about selling itself to HP (HPQ) and Dell. WHAT'S NEW: EMC held on-and-off merger talks with HP for almost a year, but those talks have ended, Wall Street Journal reported today. Dell also held talks with EMC about a takeover, the newspaper added. According to a CNBC’s David Faber, the takeover talks between HP and EMC went on for months, but the two sides couldn't agree on a price, as EMC wanted HP to pay a large premium to its stock price. Tiernan Ray of Barron's added today that the takeover talks between the companies could resume, citing a source. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The New York Post reported on September 11 that EMC was considering selling its 80% stake in cloud computing infrastructure provider VMware (VMW). UBS analyst Steven Milunovich responded to The Post's report by writing on the same day that EMC had become a potential takeover target itself. HP, Oracle (ORCL) and Cisco (CSCO) could buy EMC, the analyst wrote. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, EMC added 1% to $30, while VMware added 1% to $95.

Wells Fargo downgraded the Large-Cap Gaming sector to Market Weight from Overweight while cutting its ratings on Las Vegas Sands (LVS), Wynn Resorts (WYNN) and Melco Crown (MPEL) to Market Perform from Outperform.

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.

Ericsson announced it will discontinue future development of modems and shift parts of resources in modems to radio network R&D to better capture growth opportunities in this area. The change in strategy for modems comes as the company completes its previously communicated evaluation of the future of the modems business. In order to capture opportunities in radio networks, especially within small cells, energy efficiency and M2M, Ericsson has an immediate need to increase its R&D resources by approximately 500 people. Parts of the Modems organization have a relevant R&D competence base to support this growth.
