10:42 EDTNTAP, CSOD, CRM, WDAYCornerstone OnDemand weak after results, analysts remain upbeat
Shares of cloud computing company Cornerstone OnDemand (CSOD) are dropping after the company reported in-line revenue and lower than expected profit. A number of analysts, however, were upbeat about the company following its results. WHAT'S NEW: Cornerstone OnDemand, which provides cloud-based management talent management solutions, reported a fourth quarter earnings per share loss, excluding some items, of 3c. Analysts' consensus estimate was 0c. The company provided slightly lower than expected first quarter revenue guidance, and its fiscal 2014 profit guidance came in significantly below expectations. On the other hand, the company's fiscal 2014 revenue guidance was ahead of the consensus outlook. Cornerstone stated that its momentum remains strong, noting that its bookings jumped 51% last quarter, versus the same period a year earlier. The company added that it had been able to significantly grow its sales to midmarket companies last year, while expanding its service into new industries, such as automotive, energy, and consumer products. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors, Pacific Crest analyst Brendan Barnicle wrote that Cornerstone's billing growth should enable the company to grow over the long-term. Moreover, the company's decision to increase investments in its business seem warranted, added the analyst. He increased his price target on the stock to $60 from $55 and kept an Outperform rating on the shares. Also upbeat on Cornerstone was JMP Securities analyst Patrick Walravens. Cornerstone's revenue guidance was "solid," and its "rapid growth" can continue, wrote the analyst, who hiked his price target on the shares to $70 from $56 and kept an Outperform rating on the stock. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies that provide cloud-based solutions include Workday (WDAY), salesforce.com (CRM), and NetApp (NTAP). PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Cornerstone fell 64c, or 1.1%, to $57.70.

15:12 EDTCRMSalesforce.com technical notes ahead of results
Shares have been trading in a range largely bound between $55 at the low and $65 at the high for the last several months. There is a bullish bias within the range. The two extremes of the range may be helpful for understanding where price could go post-earnings. A move up to and above the high at $65 would mean a potential breakout to the 52-week high and life high at $67. That high was set nearly a year ago to date. A breakout above $67 would set up a run to $70. The $70 area would be the top of the long-term price channel, projected forward in time. If the news is not as bullish as traders appear to expect, a move down to the $55 area would be possible. Support prior to that range low is at $58.92, the 50-day moving average, which could be a downside objective on a less severe disappointment. A breakdown below $55 would see next support at $52.74.
