08:33 EDTWDCMorgan Stanley cautious in near-term on PC names
Morgan Stanley is more cautious on PC names near-term, given PC and HDD inventory builds quarter-to-date and weaker April ODM sales. The firm's analyst team continues to believe Q1 was a bottom in year-over-year growth, but now expects normal Q2 seasonal growth instead of above normal and thinks any recovery will likely be delayed until Q3. Morgan Stanley is cautiously optimistic on Western Digital (WDC) due to its diverse revenue drivers, sees value creation catalysts for Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and believes Microsoft (MSFT) shares reflect the challenging PC market and Win 10. The firm is more cautious on semis such as NVIDIA (NVDA) given higher valuations, share loss at Advanced Micro (AMD), potential 2H margin pressure at Intel (INTC), and Morgan is cautious on PC DRAM stocks near-term due to weaker pricing.

12:39 EDTEIXWells identifies NextEra, Sempra as among favorite utility names
Utilities as a group have dropped in recent months and there are several names in the sector that offer relative value and exposure to secular growth trends, Wells Fargo stated in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: The utilities sector is trading at a forward multiple that is 93% of the S&P 500, versus the ten year average of 102%, according to Wells. Moreover, utilities are "slightly cheap" relative to interest rates, the firm thinks. NextEra Energy (NEE) and Sempra Energy (SRE) have the best growth opportunities in the utility space, according to Wells. They also have proven management teams and are well-positioned to exploit long-term trends, including renewable energy and energy infrastructure, the firm believes. ITC Holdings (ITC) has reached an attractive entry point and, to a degree, offers a near-term hedge against an interest rate increase, according to the firm. Edison International (EIX) and Xcel Energy (XEL) are underappreciated regulated utilities, added Wells. Edison trades in-line with its peers despite superior EPS growth potential and Xcel trades at a 3%-6% discount to the sector despite its at least in-line EPS growth and comparable regulatory risk, which might ease, the firm added. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, NextEra rose 0.5%, Sempra gained 0.6%, Edison added 0.6%, Xcel climbed 0.4% and ITC was little changed.

08:13 EDTTXNJefferies ups view on Semis to Positive from Negative
Jefferies upped its view on the Semiconductors space to Positive from Negative after hosting a dozen companies at its annual conference in Miami. The firm notes that most companies noted an "OK" demand environment, which it views as supporting its thesis that the recent inventory correction and lower capex has created a "great opportunity" to add to Semi positions. After meeting with management, Jefferies has increased conviction that NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) will soon sell its HPRF business and return to its stock buyback program before most expect. It has Buy ratings on AMD (AMD), Microchip (MCHP), NXP and Texas Instruments (TXN).

06:24 EDTNTAPCiti expects 'lukewarm' Q4 results from NetApp
Citigroup expects NetApp to report "lukewarm" Q4 results on Wednesday amid "soft" underlying storage demand and "modest" currency pressure. The company's sales and earnings are likely to be in-line to a slight miss relative to consensus, Citi believes. The firm says that while the stock's valuation "looks interesting," it keeps a Neutral rating on the name with a $39 price target.
