11:53 EDTCAVM, JBL, TEL, BRCM, FLEX, APH, AVGO, CSCOCisco rallies after results top expectations
Shares of networking equipment giant Cisco Systems (CSCO) are advancing after the company's third quarter results topped analysts' consensus estimates. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Cisco reported Q3 adjusted earnings per share of 51c and revenue of $11.5B, topping expectations of 48c and $11.38B, respectively. The company forecast Q4 adjusted EPS of 51c-53c, compared to consensus of 51c. Q4 revenue was seen decreasing 1%-3% from the prior year, which represents sequential growth of 4%-6%, versus consensus $11.77B. For FY14, adjusted EPS was forecast at the high end of the $1.95-$2.05 range, versus consensus $1.99. ANALYST REACTION: Research firm Piper Jafray raised its price target on Cisco to $26 from $24 and kept an Overweight rating on the shares, saying it expected little downside risk in Cisco shares after the company's Q3 results beat expectations. Another firm, Bernstein, said the bear case on Cisco appears to be wrong, saying that the company is already showing signs of recovery. The firm expects the stock to be boosted by a pronounced recovery in IT spending and improved sentiment towards the name, with both likely occurring in the second half. Bernstein reiterated its $30 price target and Outperform rating on the stock. On the contrary, Citigroup said Cisco continues to have long-term structural issues despite its "strong" Q3 results. Citi still believes Cisco will lose market share in data center switching and routing amid mounting competitive pressures and kept a Sell rating on the stock with an $18 price target. OTHERS TO WATCH: RBC Capital said it believes that Cisco's results and guidance bode well for the company's key supply chain partners, such as Flextronics (FLEX), Jabil Circuit (JBL), Amphenol (APH) and TE Connectivity (TEL). Oppenheimer thinks that Cisco's strong enterprise results have positive implications for Avago (AVGO), Broadcom (BRCM), and Cavium (CAVM). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Cisco rose $1.52, or 6.7%, to $24.33 on nearly twice its average daily trading volume. Including today's advance, the stock is up about 15% over the past twelve months.

11:55 EDTCSCOCisco November weekly 25 straddle priced for 4.4% move into Q1
11:51 EDTCSCOCisco technical comments before earnings
The stock has underperformed the broader averages in the past three months, falling over 1%. That lower performance would have been far worse if not for the recent uptrend off the mid-October lows. That rally helped to overcome the otherwise bearish head and shoulders that had developed on the daily chart and had completed at mid-October. In a long view, the current price action appears to put the shares either at a double top, or poised for a breakout that would results in four-year highs or more. The key level is at $26, not far from where the stock is currently trading. On better news or guidance, a move above $26 would seem highly probable and that would constitute a technical bullish breakout. Next resistance would be at $27.74 and then at $28.40. If the news is not as bullish as current price action suggests, the recent uptrend would probably be broken. It would only take a move below $24.50 for that to happen. Additional downside objectives might be at the following supports at $23.76, $22.43 and $21.94. A move down to or below $22 would confirm a major top was in place, which would have long-term bearish implications for price.
