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.
