11:11 EDTMSFTMicrosoft technical notes before earnings, levels to watch
On a long-term basis the stock has a potential double top pattern that would be confirmed on a breakdown below $40. In a shorter time frame the stock is range-bound between $45 at the low and $50 at the high. If the news is bearish, a breakdown below $45 would put the shares on a path for a test at that $40 support. A breakdown below $40 would see next support at $39.27 and then at $38.56. The downside target from the double top would be to the $30 area over time. If the news is a bullish surprise, a breakout above $50 would see next resistance at $53.13 and then at $55. Both are levels not seen since the year 2000.
11:05 EDTTMAfter Jeep hacked, analyst predicts cybersecurity boosts for Harman, Delphi
After Jeep hacked, analyst predicts cybersecurity boosts for Harman, Delphi The shares of Harman (HAR) and Delphi Automotive (DLPH) are rising after Wells Fargo predicted that the companies would benefit from the increasing need to protect cars from cybersecurity attacks after Wired reported on hackers discovering methods that can be used to take control of vehicles. BACKGROUND: Two computer hacking researchers showed that they could seize control of a Jeep Cherokee, made by Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), using a technique called a zero-day exploit, Wired reported today. Using the same technique, the hackers can control "any of thousands of vehicles," the website reported. In the past, they have demonstrated how they were able to take control of a Ford (F) Escape and Toyota (TM) Prius, according to Wired. The hackers' technique involves taking control of vehicles' entertainment systems and sending commands to the vehicles' dashboard functions, steering, brakes, and transmission through their those systems, the website stated. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors today, Wells Fargo analyst David Lim responded to Wired's article by saying that cybersecurity has become a significant concern for automakers. Automotive technology suppliers such as Harman (HAR) and Delphi (DLPH) should benefit from auto makers' efforts to protect their vehicles from cyberattacks, Kwas believes. He reiterated Outperform ratings on Harman and Delphi. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Harman climbed about 2% to $108 and Delphi rose fractionally to $78.15. This version of the story replaces an earlier one to correct the lead analyst to David Lim.
10:05 EDTAAPLApple technical notes ahead of results
The stock has been trading in a range since February of this year that is bound by a low at $120 and a high at $133. There have been three touches at the range high since then and two tests at the low suggesting the bias is for a breakout. If the news is strongly bullish, notably around China sales and guidance, a breakout above $133 and the brief life high at $134.54 would be highly probable. Based on the height of the range the upside potential would be to $147 to $150. Without overhead resistance, price could continue to drift beyond that objective depending on the strength of the news. If the news is a bearish surprise, which very few expect, the low of the range would likely be tested for a third time. A breakdown below $120 would have the same range expectations as on the upside, with a downside target potential to $107 to $105 implied from the range height. Such a move would break the 10-month moving average at $122.16 which has been a good proxy for the uptrend that began off lows in August 2013. The last time this average was broken was during the downturn in price in late 2012 which then ended in August 2013.

07:45 EDTAAPLSell PayPal amid mounting payments competition, Piper says
Shares of PayPal (PYPL) advanced over 5% yesterday in the stock's first day of trading following a split from eBay (EBAY), with the majority of research firms issuing optimistic notes on its prospects. This morning, however, analyst Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray recommends selling the share as competition grows in the digital payments space. BEARS: Munster started shares of PayPal with an Underweight rating, the firm's equivalent of a "Sell," saying increased competition could pressure the stock's multiple over the next 6-24 months. Google's (GOOG) Android Pay and Apple's (AAPL) Apple Pay will give consumers a "real alternative to PayPal" for the first time, Munster tells investors in his research note. In addition, interest in payments from Amazon.com (AMZN) and Facebook (FB) bring potential for more digital wallet offerings, the analyst notes. Munster set a $30 price target for PayPal. Of note, Evercore ISI also started coverage of PayPal shares yesterday with a Sell rating. BULLS: Wells Fargo initiated coverage of PayPal yesterday with an Outperform rating, saying the company's unique assets will enable it to maintain its leadership role in digital payments and benefit from the growth of e-commerce. Also upbeat was Robert W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian, who contends that PayPal has the top pure play online payment system and is continuing to grow its share of the Internet payment market. PayPal should be able to innovate more effectively after its spin-off, added the analyst, who set a $45 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: Shares of PayPal are pointing toward further gains in their second day of standalone trading, with the stock up about 2.7% to $41.55 in pre-market trading.
