11:33 EDTCAJCiti slashes PC outlook, expresses caution on related stocks
Citi significantly lowered its 2016 PC sales estimates, citing recent negative data points. In conjunction with the call, the firm lowered its estimates for three companies whose results are significantly affected by PC sales: HP Inc. (HPQ), Marvell (MRVL) and Intersil (ISIL). WHAT'S NEW: Citi analyst Jim Silva now expects PC sales to drop 6% this year, down from his previous estimate of a 2% decline. Recent data points indicate that demand for PCs has dropped significantly so far this year, while inventories are above normal, the analyst explained. Constrained budgets and macro concerns are restraining demand for PCs, Silva believes. Meanwhile, "there is not enough evidence" to conclude that the launch of Microsoft's (MSFT) Windows 10 will be a positive catalyst for PC sales this year, Silva said. Citing his view of PC trends, along with increased competition in the printer space, Silva lowered his 2016 EPS estimate for HP to $1.53 from $1.64. Statements by other printer makers, including Xerox (XRX) and Canon (CAJ), suggest that HP's margins on printers will "come under additional pressure," the analyst believes. He lowered his price target on the name to $10.75 from $14.50 and expects the stock to remain range-bound until analysts reduce their estimates further or its end markets improve. Intersil has 20% exposure to the PC market and the sales of its products related to computing are still strongly correlated with PC sales, Citi analyst Atif Malik stated. As a result, the company will face revenue headwinds throughout this year, stated the analyst. Malik, who expects the company's 2016 and 2017 EPS to come in below consensus levels, downgraded the stock to Sell from Neutral and set an $11.50 price target on the shares. Estimating Marvell's PC exposure at about 60%, Malik lowered his 2016 EPS estimate for the company to 42c from 48c and kept a Sell rating on the name. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Hedge fund Starboard Value disclosed this morning that it had bought a 6.7% activist stake in Marvell. The hedge fund said the shares are "undervalued" and The Wall Street Journal, citing sources familiar with the situation, said Starboard is betting the company can its boost margins by cutting costs, perhaps exiting its mobile device business. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, HP Inc. fell 3.3% to $9.55, Marvell rose 1.25% to $8.78 and Intersil dropped 4.4% to $11.93.

It trimmed its price target on the name to $50 from $55 to reflect multiple contraction but keeps a Buy rating on the shares.
07:24 EDTHAINHain Celestial price target lowered to $44 from $47 at Canaccord

He dropped his price target for the shares to $38 from $42.

10:11 EDTAFLAflac technical comments before earnings news
The key level on the downside for the shares is at the $55 area. This has held quite consistently as support since late 2013. A breakdown below $55 on bearish news would resolve the range bearishly. Next supports below would be at $53.20 and then at the 52-week low at $51.41. If the news is a positive surprise, resistance levels to watch as potential upside objectives would be at $58.54, $60.18, and $61.49.

14:39 EDTAROAeropostale by-law change suggests potential for 'go-private' deal, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Richard Jaffe noted that Aeropostale amended and restated its by-laws earlier this week so that any director, or the entire board, may be removed, with or without cause, by the holders of a majority of the shares, which he believes makes the possibility of the company getting bought out, perhaps in a "go-private" deal led by Sycamore, both easier and more likely. However, Jaffe keeps a Hold rating on shares as he believes the stock is fully valued based on its fundamentals.
