12:41 EDTTGT, PFPT, CHKP, IMPV, SYMC, PANW, FEYE, CUDAFireEye rallies after firm calls 'once in a decade opportunity'
Shares of IT security company FireEye (FEYE) are climbing after Wells Fargo initiated coverage of the stock with an Outperform rating in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: FireEye has "truly disruptive technology" and "offers a once in a decade opportunity," Wells Fargo stated. Moreover, recent high profile cyber attacks on retailers, including Target (TGT) and Neiman Marcus, have increased awareness of IT security companies in general and those with anti-malware tools, including FireEye, in particular, the firm contended. It predicted that FireEye's compound annual growth rate would reach 45% or higher over the next five years. The firm kept an $83-$87 price target and Outperform rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Other companies with anti-malware products include Symantec (SYMC) and Barrcauda Networks (CUDA). Other IT security companies include Palo Alto (PANW), Proofpoint (PFPT), Imperva (IMPV), and Check Point (CHKP). PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, FireEye rose $4.17, or 5.9%, to $74.90.

15:08 EDTTGTTarget technical comments ahead of results
The stock in the past three months has outperformed the broader averages, trading up over 14%. Most of that outperformance has been in recent days leading up to earnings. That move broke the shares out of a very narrow trading range that had persisted for two months. With the shares trading close to the 52-week high at $68.28, strong positive news or an upside surprise could propel the stock through that level and to the lifetime high at $73.50. A failure to break through the $70 area, particularly on a negative surprise, could leave the shares vulnerable to a larger than normal correction. On a long-term basis a failure at $70 would be a third attempt up that failed at resistance. Support levels to watch as potential downside objectives would be at $64.65, $61.46, and $59.57. The low of the range prior to the recent breakout was at $54.66, which is the 52-week low.
