09:51 EDTFBFacebook near test of life high, levels to watch
The stock has been trading in a range largely defined by a low at $77 and a high at $85 since February of this year. That is a slightly more bullish range than the previous several months characterized by a low at $75 and a high at $82. The life high for the shares is at $86.07, with the stock breaking the range high and last at $85.65. This move could be another oscillation in the range, or it might presage a genuine breakout in price. With the range having built for so long a period, a breakout could see a more rapid increase in price with a probe to the $90 to $95 area quite possible. A move back below $85 would mean this was another excursion testing the bounds of the range, with next support below at $82.

06:04 EDTMSFT, IBMOracle says extending enterprise cloud portfolio
At a live event yesterday, Oracle (ORCL) Executive Chairman of the Board and CTO Larry Ellison announced new additions to the Oracle Cloud Platform, a comprehensive, integrated suite of services that make it easier for developers, IT professionals, business users and analysts to build, extend and integrate cloud applications. With more than 24 new cloud services, the Oracle Cloud Platform "extends Oracle's leadership with the world's broadest and deepest portfolio" of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. Newly available Oracle Cloud services include, Oracle Database Cloud - Exadata, Oracle Archive Storage Cloud, Oracle Big Data Cloud, Oracle Integration Cloud, Oracle Mobile Cloud, and Oracle Process Cloud. The Oracle Cloud Platform helps customers build new applications, extend existing ones, and easily move existing on-premises workloads to the cloud with no application changes. The services are designed to maximize end user experience and productivity; enable developers to manage and analyze data, rapidly develop, test and deploy applications; enable architects to quickly integrate across on-premises and cloud applications; and enable business users to drive rich business insights and enterprise collaboration. With the Oracle Cloud Platform, customers and partners are able to take advantage of the industry-leading Oracle middleware and database software that thousands of global organizations already use to run their own businesses, all delivered via cloud. The extensive level of automation that has been engineered into the Oracle Cloud, results in faster time-to-value, greater innovation, and lower cost for customers. "Oracle is growing really fast. We sold $426M worth of business in SaaS and PaaS last quarter, a 200 percent increase over the same quarter last year. That's an industry record, no company has ever sold that much in just one quarter," said Ellison. "Oracle is the only company on the planet that can deliver a complete, integrated, standards-based suite of services at every layer of the cloud. Those technology advantages enable us to be much more cost-effective than our competitors. Our new Archive Storage service goes head-to-head with Amazon Glacier (AMZN) and it's one-tenth their price."

06:03 EDTFBFacebook price target raised to $120 from $92 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster raised his price target for shares of Facebook to $120 and keeps an Overweight rating on the name. Facebook is the best play on the "next computer paradigm of virtual reality," Munster tells investors this morning in a research note. Oculus, the company's virtual reality technology, is an "insurance policy on the relevance of Facebook's social portfolio as technology shifts,” Munster writes. He believes the long-term value of technology is not reflected in the current share price. The social networking giant closed Friday down 39c to $82.51.

16:32 EDTAMDAMD considers spinoff or break-up, Reuters says
AMD (AMD) has hired a consulting firm to help it review a potential split or spinoff, Reuters reported late Friday, citing three people familiar with the matter. Reuters notes that AMD may be seeking to better compete with Intel (INTC), and sources said one option being considered is to separate AMD's server business from its graphics and licensing arm.
