12:51 EDTJNPRJuniper technical notes ahead of results
On a long-term chart, 5-year basis, the stock has been basing with a bullish bias since late 2011. The $25 level has become an important price point around which there are pivots. A move back below $25 on bearish news could send price back to the lows of the recent range, which have support at $20. If the news is a bullish surprise, a reaction away from current price, $26.39, could take the stock to the top of the recent range at $28.75. If the news were sufficiently strong, a run to the $30 area might be possible. The $30 level has not been seen since mid-2011. It would be a very bullish move that could put the shares back on a stronger bullish price path. Resistance above $30 would be at $30.63.

This original case against Blue Coat will be proceeding to trial on July 20, 2015, with all six patents included in Finjan's first complaint against Blue Coat. Those patents include 6,804,780; 6,154,844; 7,418,731; 6,965,968; 7,058,822 and 7,647,633. The trial in the first case is expected to last for two weeks.
