Barron's profiled Neuberger Berman's new large-cap value specialist Eli Salzmann who was recruited 13 months ago to restore the firms' historically strong large-cap value franchise. Salzmann is a traditional value manager who aims to beat the Russell 1000 Value Index over the next few years. He searches for companies that have depressed earnings relative to their true mid-economic-cycle earnings. Some of his favorites are U.S. banks, many of which are trading below tangible book value despite a recent surge in the sector. Salzmann started buying banks late last year as they began to benefit from the troubles in Europe. He likes Citigroup ( C ) and Wells Fargo (WFC) -- and has been buying shares of big regional banks, such as Fifth Third Bank (FITB), Regions Financial (RF) and Zions Bancorp (ZION). Salzmann is also bullish on large tech stocks, which are trading at about 10x earnings, have strong balance sheets and could benefit as capital spending increases. A favorite is Microsoft (MSFT). Salzmann expects the stock to see $40 over the next 12 - 24 months. One last pick: though he's generally negative on utilities, Salzmann like Exelon Generation (EXC). Other holdings: PFE, JPM, T, CVX, INTC, GS, MON and CSCO. Reference Link

12:36 EDTWFCEarnings Preview: Wells Fargo to report results after dividend hike
Wells Fargo (WFC), a bank holding company, is scheduled to report first quarter earnings before the open on Friday, April 11, with a conference call scheduled for 10:00 am ET. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 97c on revenue of $20.6B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 90c-$1.02 on revenue of $19.5B-$22.41B. LAST QUARTER: Wells Fargo reported higher than expected Q4 EPS and revenue. The company said that it believes it can continue to grow its net interest margin over time. In a statement, CEO John Stumpf said, "Strong earnings power and capital levels, and an improving economic outlook are major reasons why we look ahead to 2014 with optimism." On March 26, Wells Fargo reported that the Federal Reserve had approved the bank’s capital allocation plan. Under the plan, Wells plans to pay a dividend of 35c per share. The dividend, which was increased 16.7% over prior levels, must be approved by the bank’s board of directors at its April 29 meeting. The bank also authorized the repurchase of an additional 350M shares of its own stock. STREET RESEARCH. In a note to investors on April 8, UBS wrote that Q1 may be the first quarter in four years that Wells Fargo’s EPS will not grow versus the previous quarter, as it believes the bank was hit with seasonal costs in Q1 that were not offset by revenue increases. The bank’s EPS will drop to 97c in Q1, down from $1.00 in Q4, but will still be up 5% versus the first quarter of 2013, the firm predicted. On a positive note, UBS contended that Wells Fargo was "a relative winner" of the Fed’s capital plan approval process. Although Wells' board has approved a 350M share increase in the bank’s stock repurchases, it typically doesn’t carry out large share repurchases, UBS stated. Wells should benefit from a continued U.S. economic recovery, but its shares already reflect such an outlook, according to UBS, which kept a Neutral rating on the stock. Meanwhile, Oppenheimer was somewhat upbeat about the sector's outlook. In a note to investors on April 3, the firm predicted that bank stocks would outperform the broader market by a few hundred basis points per year. Loan growth "remains sluggish," but reduced credit costs and expenses should enable banks to report results that show slight year-over-year improvements, the firm contended. PRICE ACTION: Wells’ stock is little changed over the last month, but is up 6% so far this year and nearly 29% over the last 12 months.

Worldwide PC shipments totaled 73.4 million units in 1Q14, a decline of -4.4% year on year, according to the International Data Corporation Worldwide Quarterly PC Tracker. Although still in decline and with continuing weakness in consumer and emerging market segments, the preliminary results are slightly better than a projected decline of -5.3%. The U.S. market continued to stabilize with growth near zero – in line with forecasts. With shipments totaling 14.3 million PCs in 1Q14, the U.S. market contracted by -0.6% from the same quarter a year ago. Desktop shipments were slightly stronger, posting 3.5% growth, while portables remained in negative territory. Lenovo (LNVGY) preserved its lead in total worldwide PC shipments despite a seasonal drop due to the Chinese New Year. Growth in other regions continued at a solid pace although Latin America slowed after a dramatic expansion over the past year. HP (HPQ) remained in the number 2 position, with growth rising nicely to nearly 5% year on year. Dell grew over 9% in the first quarter.
