12:01 EDTADSKAdobe falls after Q4 revenue outlook trails consensus
Shares of creative software maker Adobe Systems (ADBE) are falling after it guided to fourth quarter revenue below analysts' consensus view. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Adobe reported Q3 adjusted earnings per share of 28c and revenue of $1.005B, compared to analysts' consensus estimates of 26c and 1.02B, respectively. Adobe exited Q3 with 2.81M creative cloud subscriptions, a sequential increase of 502,000. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Adobe forecast Q4 adjusted EPS of 26c-32c, versus consensus of 31c. The company sees Q4 revenue of $1.025B-$1.075B, below the consensus forecast of $1.09B. The company expects net new creative cloud subscriptions to grow sequentially in Q4 to slightly exceed its target of 1M. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, analyst commentary was positive, with several firms recommending buying shares of Adobe on any weakness. Research firm Stern Agee was among them, stating that Adobe's revenue miss was driven by a shift of perpetual licenses to term contracts. Sterne Agee said that Adobe's deferred revenue outperformed, which should give long-term investors confidence in the name. It believes the long-term transition story is intact, and expects upside to revenues in FY15. The firm kept a Buy rating on the shares with a price target of $85. Two other firms, JMP Securities and BofA Merrill Lynch also recommended buying Adobe amid its post-earnings weakness. PRICE ACTION: Near noon, Adobe fell $2.74, or nearly 4%, to $68. Despite today's pull-back, the shares have gained about 40% over the past 12 months. ANOTHER TO WATCH: Autodesk, (ADSK), which also serves software customers in the digital media and entertainment industries, is down fractionally to $54.54.

In response to the letter from Trian Fund Management sent earlier this morning, DuPont issued the following statement: "Our board of directors and management team have taken firm action over several years that has delivered 220 percent total shareholder return since year-end 2008, compared to 144 percent for the S&P 500 during the same period, by aggressively deploying our leading science across the company, strengthening and fine-tuning our portfolio, and through disciplined capital allocation. The board and management team remain committed to executing on our strategic plan to drive growth and profitability. The recently announced first phase of our redesign initiative to drive down costs by $1 billion and embed greater efficiencies, together with the separation of Performance Chemicals and our $5 billion share repurchase program, reflect our board and management's commitment to enhance value for all DuPont shareholders. DuPont welcomes open communications with shareholders and values input toward our common goal of enhancing shareholder value. We speak and meet with shareholders frequently, and while it is our policy not to comment on discussions with specific shareholders, we have had a constructive dialogue with Trian."

06:06 EDTDDTrian Partners says DuPont's structure 'destroying shareholder value'
Trian Fund Management, L.P., whose investment funds beneficially own approximately $1.6B of the outstanding shares of DuPont, said it has sent a letter to the bomard analyzing how DuPontís conglomerate structure is destroying shareholder value. The letter and accompanying White Paper Summary also detail initiatives DuPont should take that Trian believes could significantly improve DuPontís financial performance and double the value of its common stock within three years. Trian plans to meet with DuPont shareholders to present its analysis and strongly recommends that the DuPont Board meet shareholders without management present to hear their views. In the letter, Trian said, "While we applaud the announced spin-off of Performance Chemicals, the Fresh Start initiative and the $5 billion share buyback authorization, we believe strongly that, by themselves, these moves are not enough to optimize shareholder value. We would have preferred to continue working privately with management and the Board, but it is now clear that the Board is not willing to hold management accountable for continuing underperformance and repeated failures to deliver promised revenue and earnings targets. Therefore, we can no longer be silent as DuPont continues to struggle to execute what we are convinced is a flawed business plan, especially as we have a solution that we believe could double the value of DuPontís shares over the next three years."
