12:07 EDTAAPL, IBMApple, IBM rise after agreeing to collaborate on mobile products
Shares of Apple (AAPL) and IBM (IBM) are climbing after the companies announced a deal to partner on mobile products for corporations. WHAT'S NEW: Apple and IBM announced last night that they would collaborate to provide mobile solutions for businesses. Under the deal, the companies will develop more than 100 enterprise solutions, including native apps, for Apple's iPhone and iPads. A number of IBM's cloud services will be optimized for Apple's iOS operating system and IBM will provide device activation, supply, and management solutions for iOS, the companies said. Moreover, IBM will sell iPhone and iPads to all of its business clients around the world, the companies noted. ANALYST REACTION: Following Apple's deal with IBM, investors will begin to focus on Apple's opportunities with businesses and other organizations, Goldman Sachs analyst Bill Shope wrote in a note to investors today. Smartphones that are being used for business will constitute nearly 30% of the overall smartphone market by 2015, the analyst estimated. The deal with IBM is clearly positive for Apple, as it validates the "unique enterprise capabilities" of iOS, Shope wrote. The lack of fragmentation in iOS makes it uniquely suited for organizations, indicated the analsyt, who kept a Buy rating on Apple shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE :In another note to investors today, Citigroup analyst Jim Suva initiated coverage of Apple with a Buy rating, as he believes that the consensus outlook is underestimating the demand for Apple's upcoming iPhone 6 device. Suva thinks that analysts' consensus estimates for the company's 2015 and 2016 performance are too low and he set a $110 price target on the stock. PRICE ACTION: Near noon, Apple rose 1% to $96.31 and IBM climbed 2.3% to $192.80.
