11:53 EDTCSCO, FLEX, JBL, AVGO, BRCM, CAVM, APH, TELCisco rallies after results top expectations
Shares of networking equipment giant Cisco Systems (CSCO) are advancing after the company's third quarter results topped analysts' consensus estimates. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Cisco reported Q3 adjusted earnings per share of 51c and revenue of $11.5B, topping expectations of 48c and $11.38B, respectively. The company forecast Q4 adjusted EPS of 51c-53c, compared to consensus of 51c. Q4 revenue was seen decreasing 1%-3% from the prior year, which represents sequential growth of 4%-6%, versus consensus $11.77B. For FY14, adjusted EPS was forecast at the high end of the $1.95-$2.05 range, versus consensus $1.99. ANALYST REACTION: Research firm Piper Jafray raised its price target on Cisco to $26 from $24 and kept an Overweight rating on the shares, saying it expected little downside risk in Cisco shares after the company's Q3 results beat expectations. Another firm, Bernstein, said the bear case on Cisco appears to be wrong, saying that the company is already showing signs of recovery. The firm expects the stock to be boosted by a pronounced recovery in IT spending and improved sentiment towards the name, with both likely occurring in the second half. Bernstein reiterated its $30 price target and Outperform rating on the stock. On the contrary, Citigroup said Cisco continues to have long-term structural issues despite its "strong" Q3 results. Citi still believes Cisco will lose market share in data center switching and routing amid mounting competitive pressures and kept a Sell rating on the stock with an $18 price target. OTHERS TO WATCH: RBC Capital said it believes that Cisco's results and guidance bode well for the company's key supply chain partners, such as Flextronics (FLEX), Jabil Circuit (JBL), Amphenol (APH) and TE Connectivity (TEL). Oppenheimer thinks that Cisco's strong enterprise results have positive implications for Avago (AVGO), Broadcom (BRCM), and Cavium (CAVM). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Cisco rose $1.52, or 6.7%, to $24.33 on nearly twice its average daily trading volume. Including today's advance, the stock is up about 15% over the past twelve months.

15:34 EDTJBLJabil Circuit technical comments ahead of results
In the prior three months the shares have underperformed the averages, trading flat. The trading range has been between $20 at the low and $21.50 at the high. In the longer-term view, the shares have been in a bullish trend since hitting lows back in May. The stock does tend to advance and consolidate which is characteristic of the current price behavior. On a breakout above $21.50 on better than expected news, next resistance would be at $22.68. On progressively stronger news, the following resistance levels could become upside objectives: $23.90, and then the 52-week high at $24.13. If the news does not support additional upside, the following support levels could become downside objectives: $19.63, $18.37, $17.19, and $16.12. The short-base in the shares is moderate suggesting traders are not positioned for negative news. That could exacerbate the downside reactions on a negative surprise.

07:19 EDTCSCOEMC's end game is a marriage with Cisco, says Macquarie
Macquarie views EMC's (EMC) merger talks with Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) as a "ploy" to bring Cisco (CSCO) to the bargaining table. The analyst is not surprised by reports that EMC's discussions with Hewlett-Packard stalled given the lack of synergies and views Cisco as a logical buyer due to strong synergies and defensive reasons. Macquarie said VMware (VMW) would make Cisco the leader in the growing Software Defined DataCenter market, allowing it to offer EMC a better deal than any other potential acquirer. Finally, the firm does not view the status-quo as a compelling option for EMC given the recent share strength, aggressive street estimates, and the upcoming retirement of Joe Tucci in February. Macquarie rates EMC a Neutral with a $32 price target, up from $28.

12:50 EDTCSCOEMC jumps after reports detail takeover talks
The shares of cloud application provider EMC (EMC) are rising in a down market after Wall Street Journal reported that the company had held talks about selling itself to HP (HPQ) and Dell. WHAT'S NEW: EMC held on-and-off merger talks with HP for almost a year, but those talks have ended, Wall Street Journal reported today. Dell also held talks with EMC about a takeover, the newspaper added. According to a CNBC’s David Faber, the takeover talks between HP and EMC went on for months, but the two sides couldn't agree on a price, as EMC wanted HP to pay a large premium to its stock price. Tiernan Ray of Barron's added today that the takeover talks between the companies could resume, citing a source. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The New York Post reported on September 11 that EMC was considering selling its 80% stake in cloud computing infrastructure provider VMware (VMW). UBS analyst Steven Milunovich responded to The Post's report by writing on the same day that EMC had become a potential takeover target itself. HP, Oracle (ORCL) and Cisco (CSCO) could buy EMC, the analyst wrote. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, EMC added 1% to $30, while VMware added 1% to $95.
