12:39 EDTANFAbercrombie & Fitch technical comments ahead of earnings
The shares are in a downtrend that has persisted since the fall of last year. If the news was a bullish surprise, the first price level of significance would be the channel top at $18.97, which is also the 21-day moving average. Next resistance above the top of the channel would be at $20.31 and then at $21.54. It would take a move above $22 to turn the longer-term trend back toward bullish. If the news continues to be bearish, next support would be at the channel low at the $16.50 area. If price broke the channel low, next support would be at $15.42, the 52-week low. Support below the 52-week low would be at $14.97, which would set a new multi-year low for shares.

08:05 EDTFBFacebook Netflix TubeMogul best Internet pullback opportunities,says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer sees Facebook (FB) Netflix (NFLX) and TubeMogul (TUBE) as providing the best buying opportunities among Internet stocks. The firm notes that the growth of Facebook's usage minutes fell to 17% year-over-year in July from a 20% increase in June and a 21% increase in May. However, the firm notes that the company maintained its 21% share of time on mobile devices. The firm thinks that the company's earnings could be boosted in the near-term by the launch of performance-based ads on Instagram. Oppenheimer notes that Netflix has risks from U.S. dollar appreciation and investors' skepticism towards stocks whose value is based on expected long-term growth. TubeMogul could be hurt by perceived risks to global macro growth, according to the firm.Despite these risks, the firm thinks that Facebook's stock could rise 27% above its $110 price target. It believes that Netflix's stock could jump 15% above its $125 price target and it thinks that TubeMogul could surpass its $19 price target by 83%.
