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 EDTFAfter 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.

13:10 EDTMUMicron calls Tsinghua takeover offer unrealistic, Reuters reports
Micron has told Tsinghua Unigroup that its $23B takeover offer is unrealistic due to U.S. national security concerns, reports Reuters, citing people familiar with the matter. Sources said Micron believes the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, a government task force which Reuters notes has the power to stop mergers that threaten national security, would not approve Tsinghua's proposed deal. Micron has not formally hired an investment bank because it is not seriously considering Tsinghua's offer, the sources added. Reference Link
