12:28 EDTSLM, FMD, NNI, CTSH, INFY, WIT, SWHC, RGRStocks worth watching ahead of State of the Union
Student lenders, IT outsourcers, and gun makers are among the sectors that investors may want to keep an eye on ahead of the State of the Union address tomorrow night. STUDENT LENDERS: Senator Elizabeth Warren intends to introduce a bill to let students refinance their old loans at new, lower rates, she said earlier this month. Shares of SLM Corp. (SLM), which provides loans to college students, have been weak due to concerns that President Obama will express support for this legislation during his State of the Union address tomorrow night, FBR Capital analyst Edward Mills wrote in a note to investors last week. But the concern is misplaced, as Congress is unlikely to pass Warren's bill, Mills contended. He thinks the weakness in the stock of the company formerly known as Sallie Mae creates a buying opportunity for investors. Other names in the student lending space include First Marblehead (FMD) and Nelnet (NNI). INDIAN IT OUTSOURCERS: On Saturday, The Wall Street Journal reported that President Obama is likely to highlight immigration reform legislation in the State of the Union address, Wells Fargo analyst Ed Caso stated in a note to investors earlier today. Immigration reform legislation could surface next spring, and the House could vote on it in the early fall, Caso stated, citing unnamed sources. The House bill may be less hurtful to Indian IT outsourcing companies than the Senate immigration reform bill, the analyst believes. But the outsourcers' stocks could be negatively impacted by the advancement of legislation in the House, he added. Indian IT outsourcing companies provide foreign workers who hold temporary U.S. visas to American firms. A new immigration law could place restrictions on these visas, undermining the Indian IT outsourcers' business. Stocks in the outsourcing space include Cognizant Technology (CTSH), Infosys (INFY) and Wipro (WIT). GUN MAKERS: In his 2013 State of the Union address, President Obama called on Congress to tighten the country's gun control laws. Congress did not comply with his request, and the President could reiterate his call, or even announce that he is taking action on his own on this issue. Names in the space include Smith & Wesson (SWHC) and Sturm, Ruger (RGR).

14:56 EDTINFYInfosys technical comments ahead of earnings
The shares have outperformed in the past three months, with a decidedly bullish trend. At the current price of $59.45 the stock is not terribly far from its 52-week high at $63.20. This would likely be a level to be tested on better than expected results. If the news is sufficiently positive, it could lead to an additional breakout above the high with resistance at $65.04. If the news disappoints significantly, there is only a moderate percentage of the float short so there would be less buy-to-cover benefit. Over the past three years the $60 area has been tough resistance and disappointing results have lead to significant drops from that level. On an increasing band of negative surprises, support below would be at $57, $55.17, and $51.43 on an extreme move. The 52-week low is at $50.06.
