4 plays on tech-earnings movers

Oracle's quarterly results may prompt a surge that makes its stock worth owning, some CNBC "Fast Money" traders said.

The computer technology company on Tuesday met Wall Street expectations for quarterly earnings but missed slightly on revenue. Growth in some areas—including its cloud computing business—pushed Oracle stock nearly 2 percent higher, above $43 per share, in extended trading.

"Don't let the cloud business and the excitement there mask the rest of their business, which is growing," said trader Tim Seymour.

The stock could prove a solid buy if it slips to around $41 per share, he said. He noted, though, that "the upside is limited."

Trader Guy Adami added that Oracle could flirt with a 52-week high, just below $47 per share, which it hit in late December.

Oracle competitor Salesforce.com provides "a more direct way" to buy into the cloud space, trader Steve Grasso said. The stock closed nearly 2 percent higher on Tuesday.

"[Salesforce] definitely sets up technically to be bought," Grasso said.

Adobe Systems, another tech name reporting quarterly results on Tuesday, slid nearly 4 percent lower in extended trading on weaker-than-expected subscription growth.

Investors can shed the stock at its current price as it flirted with a 52-week high heading into earnings, Seymour said.
