14:06 EDTAAPLApple technical comments ahead of earnings, potential bearish pattern
There is a potential bearish head and shoulders top, which is most easily seen on a 3-year chart. The neckline for the pattern is at the $100 area on a closing basis, and in recent sessions the pattern has been both active and inactive as price crossed that line. If the news is bearish, a breakdown below $100 would see the pattern become active. Downside potential for the pattern would be to the $70 to $66 area. If the news is a bullish surprise, and sentiment has turned negative on the name which could add to short-cover demand, the counter-reaction up may be as large as pattern suggests is possible on the downside. It could mean in time a retaking of the $130 area or higher. The life high for the shares is at $134.54.

11:41 EDTNWSStifel downgrades Twitter as firm can't see positive spin for executive exits
Twitter (TWTR) is falling after CEO Jack Dorsey confirmed on Sunday night the departure of four company executives, leading research firm Stifel to downgrade the shares. EXECUTIVE EXODUS: The four executives leaving the company are Twitter's head of product, Kevin Weil, head of media, Katie Stanton, head of engineering, Alex Roetter, and head of human resources, Brian "Skip" Schipper. CEO Jack Dorsey confirmed the departures in a tweet, saying, "Want to set the record straight now: Given the inaccurate press rumors today regarding their departures, I'm addressing this now: I'm sad to announce that Alex Roetter, Skip Schipper, Katie Stanton and Kevin Weil have chosen to leave the company... COO Adam Bain will be taking on additional responsibilities, including responsibility for the revenue-related product teams, the media team and the HR team on an interim basis. CTO Adam Messinger will be taking over all of engineering and consumer product, design and research, user services and Fabric into one group." Note that due to Twitter's 140 character limit, Dorsey was forced to post his lengthy message in the form of an image of the text. OTHER EXECUTIVE NEWS: Twitter could name Leslie Berland, currently an executive VP at American Express (AXP), as its new Chief Marketing Officer reporting directly to Dorsey, this week, according to Re/code's Kara Swisher. Additionally, the Wall Street Journal noted that Twitter intends, as part of its shake-up. to bring in two new members to its board as soon as this week. At least one of the people is a high-ranking executive in the media industry, the Journal added. STIFEL DOWNGRADE: Twitter was downgraded to Hold from Buy by Stifel analyst Scott Devitt on Sunday. Devitt cited the executive departures, saying, "While we may not be the sharpest tools in the shed, we don't see how the departure of the heads of three major business divisions can be viewed as a positive in the middle of an attempted business turnaround." PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Twitter shares were down almost 4% to $17.15. Note this decline follows a rise of more than 4% late last week on rumors that News Corp. (NWS, NWSA) and other companies were interested in acquiring Twitter. News Corp. later denied it was building a Twitter stake.
