09:40 EDTMA, PAY, VMasterCard CEO sees migration to EMV card standard as 'necessary and critical'
MasterCard (MA) CEO Ajaypal Banga said that card security is what consumers "expect and deserve" and that a move to a new standard of EMV chip cards in the U.S. would make stealing data more difficult and would make the value of stolen data less valuable as well. Note that Visa (V) executives said on their earnings call yesterday that it is "very important" for U.S. industry to move toward new safeguards including EMV chips. Analysts have previously contended that a move to a chip card standard in the U.S. would be a positive for VeriFone (PAY), as terminals would need to be upgraded.

13:56 EDTPAYVeriFone technical comments ahead of results
The stock has been in a downtrend since topping out near the 52-week high in November. That 52-week high, at $38.26, has been notable resistance in the prior year. If the news is weaker than expected, the downtrend could extend. Support levels that could become additional downside objectives are at $31.13, $30.19, and $28.95. A move that takes the shares below $30 would signal a potential major topping pattern that could be long-term bearish for price. If the news is better than expected, resistance levels that could become upside objectives are at $34.94, $36.53, $37.46, and the 52-week high at $38.26.
