Oracle's (ORCL) FQ3 earnings are due out after the bell, with analysts forecasting that EPS rose to $0.66 from $0.62 and that revenue increased 4.1% to $9.37B. Oracle is expected to have benefited from an increase in its sales staff over the last 18 months and from fairly stable demand. "After talking with our Oracle contacts, it sounds like FQ3 was solid," Pacific Crest's Brendan Barnicle says, while Citigroup's Walter Pritchard sees "positive product catalysts ahead."
