15:25 EDTSAPAmazon cloud announcement unlikely to sink Splunk, analysts say
Amazon (AMZN) appears to be signaling an expanded presence in cloud-based data analytics, sending shares of incumbents in the space lower and prompting several analysts to weigh in on the e-commerce giant's potential impact. AMAZON CLOUD: Amazon is expected to announce a new "big data" analytics addition to Amazon Web Services, according to an October 4 Wall Street Journal report. The article follows the launch last week of Amazon Elasticsearch, adding further data crunching capabilities to the company's cloud computing platform. Commenting on the news, William Blair analyst Bhavan Suri said that Splunk (SPLK) investor concerns over Amazon are overblown. Elasticsearch is likely to remain primarily a document search platform rather than a direct competitor to Splunk's offerings, while Amazon's expected analytics announcement looks more likely to challenge Tableau (DATA) and Qlik (QLIK), the analyst argues. Meanwhile, FBR analyst Daniel Ives said that a tangential move into the data analytics space "makes a ton of strategic and financial sense" for Amazon, as the market is only about 10% penetrated despite aggressive expansion from Microstrategy (MSTR), IBM (IBM), Microsoft (MSFT), SAP (SAP), and others. That said, Ives cautioned that Amazon's ability to again disrupt the cloud space with this latest entry appear limited in the near term, with many companies already showing preference for pure-play analytics firms. Amazon may ultimately have to make a larger acquisition by picking up a Qlik, Tableau, or Splunk to gain traction, the analyst contended. PRICE ACTION: Splunk shares are down fractionally in afternoon trading after some earlier volatility, while Tableau and Qlik are showing respective losses of roughly 3.14% and 1.86%.

10:49 EDTHPQWestern Digital surges on $3.78B investment from China's Unisplendour
Shares of Western Digital (WDC) surged in morning trading after the company said it Unisplendour will take a 15% stake in the U.S. data storage company. WHAT'S NEW: Western Digital and Unisplendour, a unit of China's Tsinghua Holdings, said they entered into a pact under which a Unis subsidiary will invest $3.78B in Western Digital, the companies said. Under the terms of the agreement, Unis will buy the shares at $92.50 each. Unisplendour will own 15% of Western Digital's outstanding shares after the purchase, and have the right to nominate one representative to Western Digital's board of directors, a right that terminates if Unis' ownership falls below 10%. Unis also agreed not to sell any of its Western Digital shares for five years. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In July, the Wall Street Journal reported that Tsinghua Unigroup, which is majority-owned Tsinghua Holdings, offered to buy Micron Technology (MU) for $23B. After several talks and meetings over the matter, Reuters reported on August 28 that Zhao Weiguo, chairman of Tsinghua Unigroup, met with Micron in an attempt to revive takeover talks, but a deal did not come to fruition. Tsinghua Holdings chairman Jinghong Xu said that his company was open to a partnership with Micron if an acquisition deal could not be reached, dealReporter said. Separately, in May, Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) announced that it would sell a 51% stake in its H3C business to Unisplendour for roughly $2.3B. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Western Digital shares are up 16.06% to $79.91. OTHERS TO WATCH: Micron, which reports quarterly earnings on Thursday, is up 5.25% to $15.10, HP is up 2.56% to $25.28, SanDisk (SNDK) is up 9.2% to $53.63, Intel (INTC) is up 3.56% to $30.28, and Seagate (STX) is up 5.5% to $44.10.
