07:19 EDTCSCOEMC's end game is a marriage with Cisco, says Macquarie
Macquarie views EMC's (EMC) merger talks with Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) as a "ploy" to bring Cisco (CSCO) to the bargaining table. The analyst is not surprised by reports that EMC's discussions with Hewlett-Packard stalled given the lack of synergies and views Cisco as a logical buyer due to strong synergies and defensive reasons. Macquarie said VMware (VMW) would make Cisco the leader in the growing Software Defined DataCenter market, allowing it to offer EMC a better deal than any other potential acquirer. Finally, the firm does not view the status-quo as a compelling option for EMC given the recent share strength, aggressive street estimates, and the upcoming retirement of Joe Tucci in February. Macquarie rates EMC a Neutral with a $32 price target, up from $28.

12:50 EDTCSCOEMC jumps after reports detail takeover talks
The shares of cloud application provider EMC (EMC) are rising in a down market after Wall Street Journal reported that the company had held talks about selling itself to HP (HPQ) and Dell. WHAT'S NEW: EMC held on-and-off merger talks with HP for almost a year, but those talks have ended, Wall Street Journal reported today. Dell also held talks with EMC about a takeover, the newspaper added. According to a CNBC’s David Faber, the takeover talks between HP and EMC went on for months, but the two sides couldn't agree on a price, as EMC wanted HP to pay a large premium to its stock price. Tiernan Ray of Barron's added today that the takeover talks between the companies could resume, citing a source. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The New York Post reported on September 11 that EMC was considering selling its 80% stake in cloud computing infrastructure provider VMware (VMW). UBS analyst Steven Milunovich responded to The Post's report by writing on the same day that EMC had become a potential takeover target itself. HP, Oracle (ORCL) and Cisco (CSCO) could buy EMC, the analyst wrote. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, EMC added 1% to $30, while VMware added 1% to $95.

Cisco (CSCO) and Oracle (ORCL) are still considered possible buyers for EMC, the reporter noted. Reference Link

07:40 EDTLULUVF Corp. upgraded to Buy, could target lululemon, says KeyBanc
As previously reported, KeyBanc upgraded VF Corp (VFC) to Buy from Hold with an $80 price target. The firm cited momentum at its Timberland brand, VF's strong brand portfolio, and the potential for another large M&A transaction. The analyst said VF Corp. is well positioned to complete another large deal and could target lululemon (LULU). KeyBanc believes lululemon's quality issues, forecasting and store operational challenges play into VF Corp.'s strengths and that such an acquisition would be 10c accretive initially and 80c accretive over time.
