06:45 EDTGOOGGoogle upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Daniel Salmon upgraded Google (GOOGL, GOOG) to Outperform from Market Perform and raised his price target for the stock to $670 from $570. The search giant's Class A shares closed yesterday down 22c to $583.96. The upgrade is not a call on tonight's quarterly results, but reflects a belief that second half of 2015 and 2016 estimates will move higher on margin stabilization, Salmon tells investors in a research note. A focus on investing in key growth areas coupled with a steady revenue outlook should drive Google shares higher, the analyst writes.

14:02 EDTEBAYeBay technical notes ahead of earnings, levels to watch
The shares broke out of a long base in April of this year that had begun forming in January 2013. The breakout level was at $60. If the news continues to be bullish, a projection forward of the bullish price channel suggests a move to $70 would be possible. If the news is a bearish surprise, the $60 level is the first big test of support. A breakdown back below that area would put an end to the current breakout. Next support below would be at $57.59, which is the 10-month moving average and a good proxy for the low of the current bullish price channel.
