11:57 EDTINTCHP rises after PC report despite Pacific Crest downgrade
Shares of personal computer maker Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) are rising after research firm Gartner estimated that worldwide PC shipments had risen 1% last quarter. The advance comes despite research firm Pacific Crest having downgraded HP shares this morning. WHAT'S NEW: Worldwide shipments of PCs increased 1% last quarter, Gartner estimated. "These results indicate a slow, but consistent improvement following more than two years of decline," the firm wrote. The estimate suggests that PCs are not fading into oblivion, as some had predicted. Despite this news, research firm Pacific Crest downgraded HP to Sector Perform from Outperform in a note to investors today. HP is facing increased competition, as a number of companies are buying fewer individual servers and IT storage products, Pacific Crest analyst Brent Bracelin stated. Instead, they are buying integrated IT stacks. Ongoing technological trends could make this option more popular going forward, the analyst believes. Additionally, new data storage systems - including next wave systems with software-defined controls, cloud storage systems, and open sources systems - are growing rapidly and could increase the competitive pressure on HP, the analyst stated. Bracelin is less confident that HP's multiple can expand further going forward, he added. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Bracelin also downgraded NetApp (NTAP) to Sector Perform from Outperform for the same reasons that he cut his rating on HP. The analyst identified Tableau (DATA), F5 Networks (FFIV), Qlik Technologies (QLIK), and Nimble Storage (NMBL) as his favorite names in the IT infrastructure sector. F5 should benefit from earnings and multiple expansion as it carries out its security strategy, while Qlik is well-positioned to generate improved growth and margins, the analyst stated. Tableau and Nimble are poised to report better than expected results as their new products ramp up, Bracelin believes. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies that benefit from upbeat PC sales include Intel (INTC), Microsoft (MSFT), and hard disk drive makers Seagate (STX) and Western Digital (WDC). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, HP shares climbed 1.5% to $40.50.
08:40 EDTISRGIntuitive Surgical reports preliminary Q4 revenue $605M, consensus $587.48M
Intuitive Surgical announced certain unaudited preliminary Q4 financial results. The company expects GAAP revenue for Q4 of approximately $605M, up approximately 5% from $576M for the 4Q13. The company expects non-GAAP revenue for Q4 of approximately $601M, which excludes approximately $4M of revenue associated with da Vinci Xi trade-out offers. The unaudited preliminary results are prior to the completion of our annual independent audit and therefore are subject to adjustment. Preliminary Q4 instruments and accessories revenue on a GAAP basis is expected to increase approximately 5% to approximately $281M from $268M during 4Q13. Preliminary fourth quarter 2014 da Vinci Surgical Systems revenue on a GAAP basis is expected to increase approximately 5% to approximately $214M from $205M during 4Q13. The company placed 137 da Vinci Surgical Systems during Q4, compared with 138 systems during 4Q13. The Preliminary Q4 GAAP service revenue is expected to increase approximately 6% to approximately $110M from $103M during 4Q13.
08:22 EDTINTCIntel should meet or beat sales guidance midpoint, says Wells Fargo

14:43 EDTCSXCSX technical comments ahead of results
The stock has been in a somewhat erratic downtrend since hitting its 52-week high in late November of last year. There is an active bearish pattern on the daily chart, a bearish flag, that has downside potential to the $30 area if the pattern remains active and completes. It should be noted that new information from earnings and outlook could negate the pattern. A move above the top of the flag at the $35 area would render it void. Patterns that fail, particularly during earnings, can experience moves in the opposite direction of the pattern equal to the expected move. In this case that would put the shares back at the 52-week high at $37.99. It should be noted that the $30 would need to be broken in order to change the long-term trend to negative.

The firm keeps a Neutral rating on Intel, however, pointing out its 2015 estimates remain below consensus.
