15:20 EDTSTXSeagate technical notes before earnings
The stock on a long-term basis, 5-year chart, has broken its uptrend support line at the 50-week moving average. If the news is more bullish than expected, that moving average could come into play as resistance. That would put the first significant upside test at $59.24. Resistance above that would be at $63.39. If the news is more bearish than expected, the first significant area of support would be at $51.05, a recent pivot low. The $50 level has been important support through the prior year. A breakdown before that level would therefore be particularly bearish. Next support below $50 would be at $48.49, the 52-week low.

06:17 EDTMSFTCiti cuts Microsoft estimates, price target ahead of Q3 results
Ahead of the tech giant's Q3 results on April 23 and analyst day on April 29, Citigroup cut its below consensus estimates for Microsoft to reflect currency headwinds, lower PC units and reductions in commercial licensing. Citi's FY15, FY16 and FY17 earnings estimates now stand at $2.59, $2.71 and $2.90. The firm believes further contraction to Microsoft’s valuation multiple is possible given downside risk to consensus numbers and "medium-term uncertainty on multiple fronts." It believes the tech giant's strategic issues, including Windows challenges and the cloud transition, have no easy answers. Citi cut its price target for Microsoft shares to $36 from $38 and keeps a Sell rating on the name.
