RBC Capital valued each of EMC's business lines separately following recent spin-offs in the tech space and concluded that fair valuation of $39 per share is achievable. RBC believes shares are positioned to break out of a long held trading range and that now is an appropriate time for the company to look at strategic alternatives with CEO Joe Tucci retiring in February 2015. The firm has an Outperform rating on EMC with a $33 price target.

11:02 EDTEMCHP rises as split viewed as potential prelude to deals
Shares of HP (HPQ) are climbing after the company announced that it would split itself into two publicly traded companies. Analysts were mostly upbeat on the news and tech news website Re/code said that the two companies would be "in deal-making mode" following the split. WHAT'S NEW: HP this morning said it would split itself into two companies by the end of its fiscal 2015. One company will include HP's technology infrastructure, software and services businesses, to be known as "Hewlett-Packard Enterprise," while the other will include the company's PC and printing businesses and be called "HP Inc." Meg Whitman, who is currently the CEO of HP, will become CEO of Hewlett-Packard Enterprise and chairman of HP, Inc. ANALYST REACTION: Shareholders will likely view the move positively, as limited synergies exist between HP's enterprise business and its PC and printing business, Deutsche Bank analyst Sherri Scribner wrote. Moreover, the forward price to earnings ratio of the enterprises unit, whose margins are set to expand, are more likely to reach close to 11x following a split, in-line with the multiple of Xerox (XRX) and CSC (CSC), the analyst contended. Noting that HP remains one of the cheapest names in the S&P 500, Scribner kept a $40 price target and Buy rating on the shares. The split is "a bold and smart move" by HP that will give it the financial flexibility needed to sell off one or both of the PC and printing businesses, wrote Cantor analyst Brian White. The shareholders of EMC (EMC), which reportedly had been in discussions about merging with HP, would have difficulty accepting HP's printer and PC business, according to White. The analyst raised his price target on HP to $39 from $34.50 but kept a Hold rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Both Hewlett-Packard Enterprise and HP Inc. will "be in deal-making mode" after the split, Re/code stated. HP Inc. is likely to draw attention from both Dell and China's Lenovo (LNVGY), which were both approached by HP about a possible deal over the last year, the website stated. Meanwhile, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise could restart dormant merger talks with EMC, while Dell and Cisco (CSCO) could emerge as bidders and offer shareholders of both Hewlett-Packard Enterprise and EMC better terms, Re/code stated. However, Cisco has carried out a more conservative M&A strategy lately, while its CEO, John Chambers, who is preparing to retire soon, said the company would not be interested in buying EMC, Re/code noted. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, HP jumped 4.6% to $36.83, while shares of EMC were down fractionally.
