07:45 EDTCHLChina Mobile reported strong results, says Bernstein
Bernstein believes that China Mobile's first half results were strong, as its EBITDA rose by 7.2% and its operating revenue advanced 4.9%, although its net profit dropped 0.8%. Bernstein points out that its results were negatively impacted by changes in VAT taxation and its sales and marketing model. The firm thinks that the company's Q2 results improved versus Q1. Bernstein expects the company's results to improve further going forward, and it keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

18:08 EDTNTAPNetApp advances after Q1 results and current quarter guidance top estimates
Share of computer data software and systems provider NetApp (NTAP) are advancing after reporting first quarter results that surpassed analyst expectations and provided better than expected guidance for the second quarter. WHAT'S NEW: NetApp reported Q1 profit and revenue that surpassed analysts' average estimates. The company reported Q1 earnings per share of 29c on revenue of $1.34B. Analysts were expecting EPS of 23c on revenue of $1.32B. Looking ahead to Q2, the company expects to report EPS of 55c-60c on revenue of $1.4B-$1.5B. Consensus estimates for Q2 were 46c for EPS and $1.39B for revenue at the time of the report. NetApp CEO George Kurian said, "The IT industry as a whole is going through fundamental change as enterprises transform themselves with digital capabilities. Data is at the heart of these transformations and where NetApp has a profoundly important role to play with our differentiated vision for data management." WHAT'S NOTABLE: On the company's Q1 earnings call, the CEO noted the transformation of IT environments. Customers are reducing their spend on traditional storage "which has put pressure on our ONTAP 7 mode business," Kurian noted. The CEO also pointed out that customers are slowing investment in the capacity expansion of their traditional storage environments. These dynamics put pressure on product revenue despite strong growth in other parts of the business, the CEO said. NetApp sees fiscal year 2016 revenue to be lower by 5% year-over-year as FX headwinds continue along with limited top line predictability. ANALYST TAKE: On August 17, Summit Research analyst Srini Nandury downgraded NetApp to Sell, saying dynamics in the storage industry as well as the company's Cluster ONTAP product transition will make revenue growth "elusive in the near-term." Weaker storage spending and continued problems with getting customers to upgrade to Cluster ONTAP could drive consensus estimates lower from current levels, Nandury told investors in a research note. PRICE ACTION: Shares of NetApp are up 6.75% in after-hours trading, but off their earlier after-hours high.
