Trading Ahead of Tech Earnings Deluge

Intel may have grabbed the headlines, but they’re far from the only tech titan to release earnings.

Next week a slew of companies, including some major players issue their releases.

Take a look:
Mon: Markets Closed
Tues: Apple, IBM, Western Digital
Wed: iGate, eBay, F5 Networks, Seagate, Xilinx
Thurs: Advanced Micro, Google, Skyworks

What should you be watching? How should you position?

I’m watching Western Digital and Seagate, says Brian Kelly. I want to see what their business plans are going forward. I like the charts so they intrigue me. But I can’t figure out what the catalyst is.

IBM is on my radar, says Guy Adami. I’m hoping they say something that makes the stock sell off so I can pick it up on the dip.
