14:54 EDTORCLOracle technical comments ahead of results
In the past three months the stock has underperformed, falling by over 3%. The trading in shares has been relatively volatile, but within a narrow range largely contained by $40 at the low and $42 at the high. If the news is stronger than expected, particularly where outlook is concerned, there could be a run to the 52-week high at $43.19. That high is very close to the life highs for the shares at $46.18. We could see a range open up between the 52-week high and the life high if news exceeds expectations. If the news fails to meet investor expectations, a test down to the $40 area would appear very likely. A break below $40 would see next support at $38.34 and then at $37.08. The stock can be volatile around earnings, but gaps tend to be relatively small unless estimates are broken in extreme fashion, in either direction.
