11:45 EDTNMBL, NTAP, HILL, EMCNetApp rises after earnings beat, Needham upgrade
Shares of storage systems provider NetApp (NTAP) are advancing after the company posted better than expected first quarter results and received positive analyst commentary. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, NetApp reported Q1 adjusted earnings per share of 60c and revenue of $1.49B, beating analysts' consensus estimates of 57c and $1.47B, respectively. Q1 adjusted gross margin was 64.3%. WHAT'S NOTABLE: NetApp forecast second quarter adjusted EPS of 66c-71c and revenue of $1.49B-$1.59B, compared to consensus of 69c and $1.53B, respectively. For fiscal 2015, the company sees EPS growth just under 10% and revenue growth in the mid-single digits. FY15 adjusted gross margin is seen at 63%-64%. On NetApp's Q1 conference call, management said it was seeing a rebound in enterprise spending in the U.S. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, analyst commentary was overwhelmingly positive. Needham upgraded NetApp to Buy from Hold following its strong Q1 report, citing better enterprise spending. Their price target was $49. Two firms, Piper Jaffray and Brean Capital, raised their respective price targets on NetApp and Pacific Crest said NetApp is "'undervalued and underappreciated," noting that the company's Q1 results included 13% earnings growth year-over-year. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, NetApp rose $1.47, or 3.7%, to $40.77 on heavy trading volume. Despite today's advance, the stock is down approximately 4% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the storage space include: EMC (EMC), Dot Hill Systems (HILL) and Nimble Storage (NMBL).

07:28 EDTEMCEMC upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Maynard Um upgraded EMC (EMC) to Outperform citing a more favorable risk/reward following the company's reduced guidance. Um sees the potential for a number of strategic corporate actions, some of which he believes could take place before year-end. Most favorable would be a buy-in of EMC's VMware (VMW) stake, Maynard tells investors in a research note. The analyst has a $29-$31 price target range for EMC shares, which closed yesterday up 45c to $25.38.

13:59 EDTEMCEMC technical notes ahead of earnings
The key feature on a long-term chart is a potential compound bearish head and shoulders pattern. Shares are directly on the neckline of that pattern ahead of earnings. A move below $24 would confirm that the pattern is active. Downside potential would be to the $16 area over time, presuming the pattern was not interrupted. If the news is a bullish surprise, resistance levels to watch as potential upside objectives are at $26.17, $27.73, and $29.04. A move above $27.50 that sustained for several months would void the head and shoulders pattern.
