07:40 EDTCCECoca-Cola Enterprises sees FY15 EPS at upper end of 6%-8% range
Consensus is $2.55. For 2015, CCE continues to expect diluted earnings per share to grow at the upper end of the range of 6 percent to 8 percent on a comparable and currency-neutral basis. Based on recent rates, currency translation would negatively impact full-year 2015 diluted earnings per share by approximately 18 percent. Net sales and operating income are each expected to achieve slightly positive growth on a comparable and currency-neutral basis. The company expects 2015 free cash flow in a range of $600 million to $650 million including the expected negative impact of currency translation based on recent rates. Capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $325 million. Weighted average cost of debt is expected to be approximately 3 percent, and the comparable effective tax rate for 2015 is expected to be in a range of 27 percent to 28 percent. CCE expects to repurchase approximately $600 million of its shares in 2015. Through the end of the second quarter, the company repurchased approximately $500 million of its shares. These plans may be adjusted depending on economic, operating, or other factors, including acquisition opportunities.

10:21 EDTCUDAJPMorgan positive on Barracuda after management meetings
JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty left meetings with the CEO and CFO of Barracuda Networks "even more convinced" that the company's issues in Q1 were just "growing pains" from channel expansion. The company's business should reaccelerate and the stock should move higher as the issues sort themselves out, Auty tells investors in a research note. He views Barracuda as an attractively valued way to play the security trend and keeps an Overweight rating on the stock with a $42 price target.
