12:10 EDTHAL, BHI, WFT, SLBSchlumberger rises after long-term profit guidance beats expectations
Schlumberger (SLB) and its peers are rising after the oil and gas services company provided long-term profit guidance. WHAT'S NEW: At an investor conference earlier today, Schlumberger predicted that its earnings per share would increase at a compound annual growth rate of 17%-20%. In a note to investors earlier today, RBC Capital analyst Kurt Hallead wrote that the Street was expecting the company's EPS to grow at an annualized rate of 15%. Schlumberger predicted that its 2017 EPS would be $9-$10. The company said it could achieve its guidance through revenue growth, margin expansion, and share repurchases. Sclhumberger added that it expects oil markets to be "well-balanced" through 2017. It predicted that spending on exploration would be "subdued" in 2015, but it expects a renewed focus on exploration in 2016-2017. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Before Schlumberger announced its guidance today, Hallead predicted that the company's EPS would reach $8 in 2016. He kept an Outperform rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: Near noon, Schlumberger climbed 5% to $112.25. Other companies in the sector also advanced, with Baker Hughes (BHI) rising 1.9% to $72.77, Halliburton (HAL) gaining 1.8% to $69.39, and Weatherford (WFT) adding 1% to $22.67.

12:00 EDTHALHalliburton technical comments ahead of results
The shares have been beaten down along with declining crude prices, but have begun a process of basing since early December of last year. That base is defined by lows at the $37.50 area and highs at the $41 area. If the shares can break above the $41 level on news that is more bullish than currently expected, it could begin a recovery process in the stock. Resistance levels to watch in that event would be at $42.20 and then at $44.37. If the shares were to break below the low of the base at the $37.50 area, notably taking out the 52-week low at $37.21, then there would be a resumption of the longer-term downtrend. Support levels to watch in that case would be at $36.40, $35.32, and $33.07.
