05:59 EDTORCLGartner: Worldwide IT spending on pace to decline 5.5% in 2015
Worldwide IT spending is on pace to total $3.5T in 2015, a 5.5% decline from 2014, according to the latest forecast by Gartner, Inc. Analysts attribute the decline to the rising U.S. dollar. In constant-currency terms, the market is projected to grow 2.5%. In Gartner's previous forecast in April, it had forecast IT spending to decline 1.3% in U.S. dollars and grow 3.1% in constant currency. "We want to stress that this is not a market crash. Such are the illusions that large swings in the value of the U.S. dollar versus other currencies can create," said John-David Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner. "However, there are secondary effects to the rising U.S. dollar. Vendors do have to raise prices to protect costs and margins of their products, and enterprises and consumers will have to make new purchase decisions in light of the new prices." Communications services will continue to be the largest IT spending segment in 2015 with spending at nearly $1.5T. However, this segment is also experiencing the strongest decline among the five IT sectors. In the device market, mobile phones continue to be the leading segment, with growth in Apple phones, especially in China, keeping overall phone spending consistent. However, overall smartphone unit growth will start to flatten. The PC and tablet market continues to weaken. The expected 10 percent increase in average PC pricing in currency-impacted countries is going ahead, delaying purchases even more than expected. Excessive PC inventory levels, especially in Western Europe, need to be cleared, which will delay Windows 10 inventory in the second half of the year. Within the data center systems segment, storage and network markets are both expected to see weaker growth in U.S. dollar terms as a result of the appreciation of the U.S. dollar. Reference Link

11:11 EDTGMEAnalyst says Best Buy shares poised to rise
Best Buy's (BBY) stock is poised to advance after the company reports its second quarter results, research firm B. Riley predicted. WHAT'S NEW: Best Buy's forecast for increased margins in the second half of the year, along with easing comparisons, should cause the stock to rise, predicted B. Riley in a note to investors earlier today. The shares will be particularly well-positioned to climb after the company updates its guidance following its Q2 results, the firm believes. Best Buy's initiatives should help increase its revenue and profits heading into fiscal 2017 and the retailer can continues to increase its market share at the expense of Sears (SHLD), RadioShack and others. Additionally, macro economic trends remain favorable for Best Buy and its key product categories continue to perform well, according to B. Riley. The firm, which is particularly confident about the company's ability to beat Q4 consensus estimates, keeps a $47 price target on the name and reiterates a Buy rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In their own note to investors this morning, SunTrust analysts David Magee and D. Mitch Van Zelfden speculated on potential M&A activity in the specialty retail space, noting that "Wall Street’s appetite for acquisitions has strengthened recently." In their opinion, Best Buy acquiring GameStop (GME) is among the "most compelling relationships" in the sector, the note explained. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Best Buy slid 0.4% to $34.72, while GameStop rose 1.3% to $44.92.

These estimated costs include normal ongoing restructuring as well as charges related to the cost and efficiency program, this quarter primarily driven by changes in Sweden. Savings related to this specific activity will start to impact results towards the end of 2015.

06:04 EDTORCLOracle says extending enterprise cloud portfolio
At a live event yesterday, Oracle (ORCL) Executive Chairman of the Board and CTO Larry Ellison announced new additions to the Oracle Cloud Platform, a comprehensive, integrated suite of services that make it easier for developers, IT professionals, business users and analysts to build, extend and integrate cloud applications. With more than 24 new cloud services, the Oracle Cloud Platform "extends Oracle's leadership with the world's broadest and deepest portfolio" of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. Newly available Oracle Cloud services include, Oracle Database Cloud - Exadata, Oracle Archive Storage Cloud, Oracle Big Data Cloud, Oracle Integration Cloud, Oracle Mobile Cloud, and Oracle Process Cloud. The Oracle Cloud Platform helps customers build new applications, extend existing ones, and easily move existing on-premises workloads to the cloud with no application changes. The services are designed to maximize end user experience and productivity; enable developers to manage and analyze data, rapidly develop, test and deploy applications; enable architects to quickly integrate across on-premises and cloud applications; and enable business users to drive rich business insights and enterprise collaboration. With the Oracle Cloud Platform, customers and partners are able to take advantage of the industry-leading Oracle middleware and database software that thousands of global organizations already use to run their own businesses, all delivered via cloud. The extensive level of automation that has been engineered into the Oracle Cloud, results in faster time-to-value, greater innovation, and lower cost for customers. "Oracle is growing really fast. We sold $426M worth of business in SaaS and PaaS last quarter, a 200 percent increase over the same quarter last year. That's an industry record, no company has ever sold that much in just one quarter," said Ellison. "Oracle is the only company on the planet that can deliver a complete, integrated, standards-based suite of services at every layer of the cloud. Those technology advantages enable us to be much more cost-effective than our competitors. Our new Archive Storage service goes head-to-head with Amazon Glacier (AMZN) and it's one-tenth their price."

16:24 EDTORCLOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Thursday
Stocks began the session in positive territory, adding to the late day move yesterday that followed Fed comments about the central bank's plans to raise benchmark interest rates gradually. Today's rally was broad based, as all 10 S&P sectors were in positive ground and the Nasdaq closed at a new all-time high. There were the usual headlines concerning Greece, but for at least one day, the U.S. market was able to ignore the European noise. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the consumer prices index rose 0.4% in the month of May, versus expectations for a 0.5% increase. The core reading, which removes food and energy prices, rose 0.1%, versus the expected increase of 0.2%. Initial jobless claims dipped 12,000 to 267,000 in the week ended June 13, versus expectations for 277,000 first-time claims. The Philadelphia Fed manufacturing survey climbed 8.5 points to 15.2 in June, topping expectations for a reading of 8. The leading indicators rose 0.7% to 123.1 in May, topping expectations for a rise of 0.4%. In Europe, International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde reportedly said Greece won’t be given a grace period if it fails to make its scheduled payment to the fund on June 30. Meanwhile, finance ministers of euro area member states met today, after which Agence France-Presse reported that the talks ended with no deal on Greece. Bloomberg subsequently said that euro leaders plan to hold a summit to discuss Greece this coming Monday. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Oracle (ORCL) dropped $2.17, or 4.84%, to $42.74 after the enterprise software, hardware and IT services provider reported lower than expected fourth quarter earnings per share and gave a lower than expected forecast for profit in its new quarter... General Motors (GM) announced that Fitch has raised the credit ratings of both GM and GM Financial to investment grade, meaning the corporate credit ratings for GM are now investment grade with all major rating agencies. Meanwhile, Reuters reported, citing several sources familiar with the matter, that the automaker has hired Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) to advise it as Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) CEO Sergio Marchionne attempts to gain the support of GM investors with the goal of forcing merger discussions with GM's board... Fitness tracker maker Fitbit (FIT) surged 48.4% to close at $29.68 in its first day of public trading. The company priced its initial public offering at $20 per share, topping expectations, and its closing price gives it a market value near $6B. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia (MSO), which rose $1.35, or 26.27%, to $6.44 after The Wall Street Journal reported the company was nearing a deal to be acquired by Sequential Brands (SQBG), though the Journal said it was unable to learn the terms of the potential deal being discussed. Sequential Brands (SQBG) shares added 12.4% to close at $16.04 following the report. Also higher was Radius Health (RDUS), which gained $7.81, or 15.1%, to $59.54 after the company announced results from the six-month extension study for abaloparatide, its experimental treatment for osteoporosis. Among the noteworthy losers was Bankrate (RATE), which fell $2.60, or 18.77%, to $11.25 and was downgraded to Neutral from Buy at SunTrust after the company's revenue outlook came in well below the consensus forecast. INDEXES: The Dow gained 180.10, or 1%, to 18,115.84, the Nasdaq rose 68.07, or 1.34%, to 5,132.95, and the S&P 500 added 20.80, or 0.99%, to 2,121.24.

12:34 EDTORCLOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street opened in positive territory and continued to tack on gains throughout the morning. The move has been broad based, with each of the major averages gaining at least 1%. The move may be reflecting investors feeling a sense of relief following yesterday’s FOMC meeting, after which the central bank repeated its promise to be gradual in raising rates, without specifying when rate "lift-off" will commence. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the consumer prices index rose 0.4% in the month of May, versus expectations for a 0.5% increase. The core reading, which removes food and energy prices, rose 0.1%, versus the expected increase of 0.2%. Initial jobless claims dipped 12,000 to 267,000 in the week ended June 13, versus expectations for 277,000 first-time claims. The Philadelphia Fed manufacturing survey climbed 8.5 points to 15.2 in June, topping expectations for a reading of 8. The leading indicators rose 0.7% to 123.1 in May, topping expectations for a rise of 0.4%. In Europe, International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde reportedly said Greece won’t be given a grace period if it fails to make its scheduled payment to the fund on June 30. Meanwhile, finance ministers of euro area member states are set to meet today, but expectations for progress on Greece are low. Also, the Norwegian central bank cut interest rates to a record low, while the Swiss National Bank kept its deposit rate at record lows as well. In Asia, the Shanghai composite index tumbled 3.7% overnight, doubling its weekly decline to 7.4% and increasing fears that a bubble in the nation's stock market may be preparing to burst. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of enterprise software, hardware and IT services provider Oracle (ORCL) dropped 7% after the company reported lower than expected fourth quarter earnings per share and gave a lower than expected forecast for profit in its new quarter. Analysts at several firms, including Susquehanna, Wells Fargo and Cantor, suggested the post-earnings drop may be a buying opportunity, citing progress in the company's cloud efforts... Fitness tracker maker Fitbit (FIT) surged nearly 50% in its first day of public trading. The company priced its initial public offering at $20 per share, topping expectations, then opened at $30.40 per share, giving it a market value near $6.3B in early trading. Near noon, the stock had pulled back a bit to trade just below $30 per share. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was PBF Energy (PBF), which gained 18% after announcing that its subsidiary has signed a definitive agreement to purchase Chalmette Refining, a joint venture between affiliates of Petroleos de Venezuela and ExxonMobil (XOM). Also higher was BioMarin (BMRN), which rose 13% after the company reported results from a study of BMN-111 in dwarfism and several analysts hiked their price targets on the stock to reflect the increased probability of success for the drug. Among the noteworthy losers following their earnings reports were Bankrate (RATE), which fell 18%, and Jabil Circuit (JBL), which dropped 7%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 218.44, or 1.22%, to 18,154.18, the Nasdaq was up 74.96, or 1.48%, to 5,139.84, and the S&P 500 was up 23.57, or 1.12%, to 2,124.01.
