13:16 EDTCA, SYMC, BMC, MSFT, DELLCA, Symantec, BMC gain after Dell reaches deal to go private
CA (CA), Symantec (SYMC), and BMC Software (BMC) are climbing after Dell announced earlier today that it had agreed to go private in a deal valued at $24.4B. The Dell deal may reignite speculation that the three large software vendors may carry out similar transactions, JPMorgan analyst John DiFucci wrote in a note to investors following the Dell announcement. DiFucci also noted that Microsoft (MSFT) had agreed to provide a $2B loan to finance Dell's transaction. Microsoft's partners will probably be pleased that the software maker chose to provide a loan to the acquirers, rather than obtain a stake in Dell, the analyst wrote. The software giant’s decision will reduce concerns that Dell will receive preferential treatment from Microsoft, DiFucci contended. The analyst maintained Overweight ratings on CA and Symantec, and Neutral ratings on BMC and Microsoft. In early afternoon trading, CA added 1.5% to $25.06, Symantec climbed 2% to $22.08, BMC rose 1% to $42.05, and Microsoft added 0.5% to $27.57.

07:24 EDTMSFTTech leaders concede need to address privacy, security concerns, FT says
Prominent start-up investor and Facebook (FB) director Peter Thiel said a "crescendo of concern is building up in Europe" about the U.S. tech industry's record on online privacy and security, which Silicon Valley is underestimating "badly,” though Google (GOOG) chairman Eric Schmidt tech companies "are way sensitive" to the concerns, reported Financial Times. The same report noted that Brad Smith, general counsel of Microsoft (MSFT), said some in the industry have "underestimated the degree to which people care about privacy,” while Salesforce.com (CRM) CEO Marc Benioff said consumer Internet companies have “paid a terrible price” for imposing a U.S.-centric view of their technology.
