14:28 EDTCAT, BA, FDX, ORCLMarket poised for losing week as China, Europe data pulls down shares
Stocks are set to end the week lower after weak economic data from China and Europe made many investors more pessimistic about the global economy. MACRO NEWS: A Chinese purchasing managers' index for March compiled by HSBC fell to 48.1, the lowest level since last November, HSBC reported. Any level below 50 indicates that the country's manufacturing sector contracted... The euro zone's manufacturing base also appears to have contracted, as a March purchasing managers' index for the bloc came in at 48.7, down from 49.3 in February... Also disappointing investors was U.S. housing data, as 313,000 new homes were sold last month, versus the consensus estimate of 325,000. An index of home prices for January and existing home sales for February also came in below expectations. COMPANY NEWS: Industrial companies, including Caterpillar (CAT) and Boeing (BA), saw their stocks decline this week in the wake of the weaker economic reports... FedEx (FDX) reported higher than expected adjusted Q3 EPS but lowered its 2012 EPS guidance... Oracle (ORCL) posted stronger than expected results, but its stock is poised to decline significantly for the week.

11:17 EDTORCLEMC seen as potential target after said to mull VMware stake sale
EMC (EMC) is considering selling its 80% stake in cloud computing infrastructure provider VMware (VMW), The New York Post reported today, citing unnamed sources. Calling The New York Post "surprisingly accurate" on M&A news, UBS said the likelihood of change at EMC has increased and it has become a potential takeover target. WHAT'S NEW: EMC is exploring the possibility of selling its stake in VMware, which could be acquired by HP (HPQ), according to one source, The Post reported. EMC could also look to sell other assets, the newspaper quoted a second unnamed source as saying. ANALYST REACTION: UBS analyst Steven Milunovich wrote that he is more convinced in the wake of the Post story that "something is up" at EMC. Although EMC has denied in the past that it would consider selling or spinning off VMware, the company could change its tune, the analyst stated. HP could buy VMware or all of EMC, while Oracle (ORCL) and Cisco (CSCO) are also potential buyers of EMC, Milunovich believes.The analyst kept a $33 price target and Buy rating on shares of EMC. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Activist investor Elliott Management, a hedge fund, has taken a $1B stake in EMC and wants the company to spin off VMware, The Wall Street Journal reported in July. Early last month, research firm FBR Capital wrote that an EMC spin-off of VMware could enhance shareholder value for both companies and make VMware a top acquisition candidate by a larger technology company. The firm kept an Outperform rating on EMC at that time. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, EMC was little changed at $29.50, down from its earlier high of $29.89. VMware fell 0.7% to $96.75, down from its earlier daily high of $97.86.

The firm believes the likelihood for change at the company is rising. In addition, UBS says the industry should consolidate, and it views EMC as a potential target. UBS thinks Cisco (CSCO), Oracle (ORCL) and HP (HPQ) might be interested parties in owning part or all of EMC. The firm believes an HP, EMC merger would make sense. UBS has a Buy rating on EMC with a $33 price target.
