At current price next support is at $244.71, the session low. Resistance is at $250.99. A move in the shares on a closing basis at or below $240 would confirm a break of long-term uptrend support which would be bearish for price.

09:15 EDTTSLATesla's gigafactory and potential capital needs are key questions, says Goldman
Goldman said it remains cautious on Tesla due to the gigafactory's aggressive timetable and potentially increasing capital needs due to the planned production ramp, model and derivative expansion, service growth, and other projects yet disclosed. Tesla has said it could self-fund capex but is keeping its options open depending on new products and the pace of growth. Goldman remains on the sidelines with a Neutral rating and $210 price target given the likely noisy Q3 and valuation that reflects flawless execution.

10:40 EDTRHPier 1 Imports falls to 12-month low after weak Q2, lowered outlook
Shares of home furnishings retailer Pier 1 Imports (PIR) hit a 12-month low after the company's second quarter results fell below analysts' consensus estimates and it reduced its fiscal 2015 earnings per share outlook. WHAT'S NEW: Pier 1 Imports reported Q2 EPS of 10c on revenue of $418.6M, missing analysts' consensus estimates of 14c and $426.02M, respectively. Same-store-sales for the quarter were up 4.5%. The retailer lowered its FY15 EPS outlook to 95c-$1.05 from $1.14-$1.22. Analysts' consensus estimates for FY15 EPS prior to the earnings report was $1.13. The company sees FY15 SSS in the mid-to-high single digits and gross profit, as a percentage of sales, are expected to be 40.5%-41.5%. Pier 1 Imports CEO Alex Smith said that he foresees online sales to surpass $400M in 2016. WHAT'S NOTABLE: During the company's conference call, Pier 1 Imports said that it expects to see improving merchandise margins in coming quarters with fewer coupons. The company noted plans to continue returning cash to shareholders in the form of dividends and share buybacks. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, Wells Fargo analyst Matt Neemer downgraded Pier 1 Imports to Market Perform from Outperform. He feels that the stock will be a difficult one to own in the medium term as the retailer moves towards a multi-channel approach. Neemer believes that the company has a difficult journey ahead as it cuts broad-based discounters, and he feels that consumers will take time to get accustomed to the new messaging. He cut his price target range to $15-$16 from $19-$20 for the company. Barclays analyst Alan Rifkin downgraded Pier 1 Imports to Equal Weight from Overweight due to slow revenue growth and heightened promotions. He feels that that the "soft" revenues could continue. He believes that the company's elongated online profitability pipeline and increased promotions are certain to be a burden on the business in ways that the company had not initially thought. Rifkin said that growing the top line will be even harder in the absence of promotions. He reduced his price target for shares to $14 from $18. Argus analyst Christopher Graja downgraded Pier 1 Imports to Hold from Buy due to the company's lower than anticipated Q2 earnings. He feels that in terms of the home furnishings market, companies such as Williams-Sonoma (WSM), Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW) are more "resilient" for shareholders. Pier 1 Imports was also downgraded to Hold from Buy at BB&T. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Pier 1 Imports fell $2.63, or 16.99%, to $12.90. Including today's pull back, the stock is down approximately 45.2% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the home furnishings space include Restoration Hardware (RH), and Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY).
