10:37 EDTPSO, MSFT, BKSBarnes & Noble says talks with Riggio ongoing, cannot comment further
On its Q3 earnings conference call, Barnes & Noble (BKS) confirmed that discussions between Len Riggio and the strategic committee of its Board in regard to his plan to make a proposal to purchase the retail business are ongoing, but said it could not comment further. The company also said that its Nook Media subsidiary has been financing itself since investments from new partners Microsoft (MSFT) and Pearson (PSO) in October, along with positive cash flow from its College business. B&N said Nook Media has approximately $240M in cash with no debt and it expects the unit to self-finance going forward. The company said that recent news reports that it may be accelerating store closings are inaccurate. The company said historically it has closed 12-22 stores each year, averaging 15 stores a year over the last 10 years, and "that will not change." B&N noted that 95% of its stores are profitable and "we have no plans to close any of these." Shares of Barnes & Noble, which began the session in negative territory, crossed into positive ground as the call continued and are up 40c, or 2.63%, to $15.63 in early morning trading.

08:15 EDTMSFTSalesforce acquisition still possible, says JMP Securities
After Salesforce reported stronger than expected results, JMP Securities indicated that the results, along with statements by the company's CEO, make an acquisition seem less likely. However, the firm continues to believe that Google (GOOG), Oracle (ORCL), or Microsoft (MSFT) could buy the company. All three potential acquirers have significant cash and strong potential synergies with Salesforce, and the world is moving to the cloud, the firm explained. It raised its price target on Salesforce to $80 from $75 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

08:33 EDTMSFTMorgan 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.
