10:49 EDTVFC, ZQK, LULUQuiksilver rallies after UBS says takeover still possible
Shares of apparel maker Quiksilver (ZQK) are jumping after research firm UBS wrote that the company is still an attractive takeover target for VF Corp. (VFC), despite the weaker than expected results that Quiksilver reported on June 2. WHAT'S NEW: Although Quiksilver reported significantly weaker than expected Q2 results and the stock plunged, there are still strategic rationales for VF Corp. to buy the company, UBS contended. Among Quiksilver's features that make it attractive for VF Corp. are its emphasis on action and sports apparel, its strong brand, and its sustainable long-term growth, UBS believes. Additionally, Quiksilver could help VF Corp. reduce its dependence on winter apparel, the firm wrote. UBS kept Quiksilver on its top M&A target list. WHAT'S NOTABLE: VF Corp. operates like a private equity firm and should make one or two "significant" acquisitions every other year or so, ISI analyst Omar Saad wrote in his own note to investors on May 13. VF Corp. lacks a foothold in the strong and growing performance athletic apparel segment and a merger between it and lululemon (LULU) would be mutually beneficial, Saad contended at that time. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Quiksilver climbed 8% to $3.62.

15:34 EDTLULUlululemon technical commentary ahead of results
The shares rebounded sharply at the end of last year but have paused in the last several weeks prior to earnings. The range of price has been bound by $60 at the low and $68 at the high. These bounds may help understand where price may go following earnings and outlook. If the news is positive, a first test of resistance would come at $64.96, the 50-day moving average. A breakout above the moving average would be a technical positive, with the 52-week high at $68.99 as next resistance. An extreme positive move on the upside could take shares to the $70 area. It was from that price point in December 2013 that the stock began its fall. If the news is bearish, support levels to watch below $60 would be at $58, $55.48, and $53.39.
