11:55 EDTNOK, MSFTNokia advances after securing Chinese approval for Microsoft deal
Shares of Nokia (NOK) are higher this morning after a deal to sell substantially all of its Devices & Services business to Microsoft (MSFT) received regulatory approval in China. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Nokia won approval from China's Ministry of Commerce, the country's competition authority, to sell its mobile phone business to Microsoft for EUR5.4B, or about $7.4B. In addition to China, Nokia and Microsoft have now received regulatory approvals from the U.S. Department of Justice, the European Commission and numerous other jurisdictions. Nokia and Microsoft believe the transaction will close this month. WHAT'S NEW: Nokia said in a statement that that several competition authorities around the world reviewed Nokia's patent licensing practices in the regulatory approval process. The company said "no authority" challenged Nokia's compliance with its fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory, or FRAND, undertakings related to standard-essential patents or requested that Nokia make changes to its licensing program or royalty terms. The closing of the transaction is still subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. PRICE ACTION: Nokia shares trading in New York advanced 39c, or 5.4%, to $7.61 in late-morning trading, while Microsoft was nearly flat at $39.72.

11:11 EDTMSFTMicrosoft technical notes before earnings, levels to watch
On a long-term basis the stock has a potential double top pattern that would be confirmed on a breakdown below $40. In a shorter time frame the stock is range-bound between $45 at the low and $50 at the high. If the news is bearish, a breakdown below $45 would put the shares on a path for a test at that $40 support. A breakdown below $40 would see next support at $39.27 and then at $38.56. The downside target from the double top would be to the $30 area over time. If the news is a bullish surprise, a breakout above $50 would see next resistance at $53.13 and then at $55. Both are levels not seen since the year 2000.
