Big Lots technical notes before earnings

The stock has been trading in a wide range since May 2014 which has recently seen higher lows and highs. The bottom of the expanded range is at the $42 area and the high is at the $55 area. If the news is a strong positive, the top of the range could be tested from current levels. Resistance thereafter would be at the 52-week high and life high at $56.30. A breakout above the high would open up a run to the $57.50 to $60 area. If the news is a negative surprise, the first support level of note would be at $47.30. Thereafter support levels to watch as potential downside objectives would be at $45.65, and then at $42. A breakdown below $42 would resolve the range bearishly with next support at $40.29.

On The Fly: Top five analyst initiations
Catch up on today's top analyst initiations with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Tesla (TSLA) initiated with a Buy at Sterne Agee CRT with analyst Rob Cihra arguing that while the electric carmaker is "controversial, expensive and risky," its growth is "open-ended" as it targets the trillion dollar auto and energy markets. Chira has a $300 price target on the stock. 2. Big Lots (BIG) initiated with an Outperform at Oppenheimer with analyst Brian Nagel citing ongoing turnaround potential. 3. GrubHub (GRUB) initiated with a Buy at Maxim. 4. Yelp (YELP) initiated with a Buy at Maxim. 5. Avon Products (AVP) initiated with a Buy at Jefferies. This list is just a portion of The Fly's analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Apple (AAPL) downgraded to Outperform from Buy at Daiwa. 2. Big Lots (BIG) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Northcoast with analyst Jeff Stein citing valuation. 3. Wendy's (WEN) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst David Palmer saying the company's positive Same-Store Sales trends moderated in the second quarter and July, as its SSS drivers have become less visible. 4. Kroger (KR) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital with analyst Kelly Bania believing grocery deflationary pressures are too hard to ignore and make outperformance difficult given the pressure on same-store-sales and the deleveraging impact on the balance sheet. 5. Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Maxim. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
