E-commerce sales globally increased approximately 16% on a constant currency basis. Gross merchandise value, or GMV, increased approximately 18% on a constant currency basis. Q2 earnings were pressured by currency fluctuations, lower Walmart U.S. margins and investments in customer experience. Consolidated operating income declined 10%. CEO Doug McMillion says, "We're pleased that the investments we've made are helping to improve our business. Even if it's not as fast as we would like, the fundamentals of serving our customers are consistently improving, and it's reflected in our comps and revenue growth. In this case, our desired changes require investments, which are pressuring earnings this year. We're confident that our strategic plan will create robust sustainable growth for shareholder returns over time."

06:04 EDTNMBLNetApp downgraded to Sell from Hold at Summit Research
Summit Research analyst Srini Nandury downgraded NetApp (NTAP) to Sell saying dynamics in the storage industry as well as the company's Cluster ONTAP product transition will make revenue growth "elusive in the near-term." Weaker storage spending and continued problems with getting customers to upgrade to Cluster ONTAP could drive consensus estimates lower from current levels, Nandury tells investors in a research note. Further, the analyst believes NetApp continues to lose high sales performers to competitors such as Nimble Storage (NMBL), Pure Storage, Tegile and Tintri. He expects the company's FY16 revenue to decline 6% on top of the 3% decline in FY15, with only modest growth in FY17. Nandury cut his price target for NetApp shares to $28 from $32. The stock closed Friday up 13c to $30.75.
