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

08:25 EDTMSFTMicrosoft CEO says decision to change "difficult, but necesary"
In am email to Microsoft employees on the integration of Nokia Devices and Services, CEO Satya Nadella said "The first step to building the right organization for our ambitions is to realign our workforce. With this in mind, we will begin to reduce the size of our overall workforce by up to 18,000 jobs in the next year. Of that total, our work toward synergies and strategic alignment on Nokia Devices and Services is expected to account for about 12,500 jobs, comprising both professional and factory workers. We are moving now to start reducing the first 13,000 positions, and the vast majority of employees whose jobs will be eliminated will be notified over the next six months. It’s important to note that while we are eliminating roles in some areas, we are adding roles in certain other strategic areas... Our workforce reductions are mainly driven by two outcomes: work simplification as well as Nokia Devices and Services integration synergies and strategic alignment. First, we will simplify the way we work to drive greater accountability, become more agile and move faster. As part of modernizing our engineering processes the expectations we have from each of our disciplines will change. In addition, we plan to have fewer layers of management, both top down and sideways, to accelerate the flow of information and decision making. This includes flattening organizations and increasing the span of control of people managers... Second, we are working to integrate the Nokia Devices and Services teams into Microsoft. We will realize the synergies to which we committed when we announced the acquisition last September. The first-party phone portfolio will align to Microsoft’s strategic direction. To win in the higher price tiers, we will focus on breakthrough innovation that expresses and enlivens Microsoft’s digital work and digital life experiences. In addition, we plan to shift select Nokia X product designs to become Lumia products running Windows." Reference Link

These steps will result in the elimination of up to 18,000 positions over the next year.

The company expects to incur pre-tax charges of $1.1B-$1.6B over the next four quarters, including $750M-$800M for severance and related benefit costs, and $350M-$800M of asset-related charges.
