16:05 EDTSYMCSymantec plans to separate into two public companies
Symantec announced that its Board of Directors has unanimously approved a plan to separate the company into two, independent publicly traded companies: one business focused on security and one business focused on information management. The transaction is intended to take the form of a tax-free distribution to Symantec shareholders of 100% of the IM business in a new, independent, publicly traded stock. The expected stock distribution ratio will be determined at a future date. The company expects to complete the spinoff by the end of December 2015. The company expects to incur separation and restructuring charges through the completion of the transaction as it works to separate the two businesses. "Symantecís decision to pursue a separation follows an extensive business review of the companyís strategy and operational structure. Creating two standalone businesses will allow each entity to maximize its respective growth opportunities and drive greater shareholder value," the company stated. The security business generated revenue of $4.2B in FY14. The IM business generated revenue of $2.5B in FY14. Michael Brown will be the President and CEO of Symantec and Thomas Seifert will continue to serve as CFO. John Gannon will be General Manager of the new information management business and Don Rath will be its acting CFO.

15:20 EDTCUDABarracuda Networks technical comments before results
The shares have sharply underperformed in the prior three months, trading down by over 20%. At the current price of $26.41 the stock is close to the lows of its range over the period, with the trend down but more recently in a consolidation phase. A key level to watch on news that exceeds low expectations would be at $24. That has been major support during the sideways move since early September. It has also been an area of significance over the year, forming a consistently tradeable bottom. A break therefore would be bearish, putting the stock on a path not seen since its IPO. Support below would be at $22 and then at $20.13. If news is sufficiently better than expectations, a bounce would be likely given past history. Resistance levels to watch as potential upside objectives would be at $28.56, $29.44, and $32.27.
