Tech bellwether Oracle (ORCL) is due to release its FQ1 results after the bell today, with analysts expecting that EPS rose to $0.53 from $0.48, while revenue edged up 0.3% to $8.42B.  Nomura analyst Rick Sherlund reckons Oracle could spring a pleasant surprise in its forecast for FQ2, with the firm's projections for new software licenses a key metric.
