14:34 EDTORCLEarnings Preview: EMC reports after HPQ merger talks said to end
EMC Corporation (EMC) is expected to report third quarter earnings before the bell on Wednesday, October 22, with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. EMC provides software, hardware and IT services to business customers through its three federated businesses: EMC Information Infrastructure, Pivotal and VMware Virtual Infrastructure, which is represented by EMC’s majority equity stake in VMware (VMW). VMware is expected to report on its own third quarter results after the bell on Tuesday, October 21, with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. EXPECTATIONS: For EMC, analysts are looking for earnings per share of 46c on revenue of $6.0B. The consensus range is 44c-49c for EPS and $5.91B-$6.16B for revenue, according to First Call. Along with its last earnings report, EMC raised its FY14 adjusted EPS view to $1.91 from $1.90 and guided to FY14 revenues of $24.58B. Analysts consensus for FY14 EPS and revenue currently stand at $1.91 and $24.55B. For VMware, analysts are looking for earnings per share of 83c on revenue of $1.5B. The consensus range is 81c-85c for EPS and $1.48B-$1.52B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: EMC reported Q2 adjusted EPS of 43c, which matched the consensus expectation. EMC's revenue of $5.9B came in slightly ahead of the $5.83B consensus projection. EMC also accelerated its 2014 share buyback plan, stating that it now expects to repurchase an aggregate of $3B of the company's common stock in 2014. VMware reported Q2 EPS of 81c, versus consensus of 79c, on revenue $1.46B, versus consensus of $1.44B. NEWS: VMware held its "VMWorld 2014" conference from August 24-28, during which the company updated its 2015 guidance. VMware's guidance for revenue growth in the mid teens percentage level and margin expansion of up to one percentage point is positive, RBC Capital analyst Matthew Hedberg wrote in a note to investors on August 26. The same day Cowen analyst Gregg Moskowitz wrote that VMware's FY15 revenue guidance would "likely weigh modestly" on the stock, even though he was not surprised by the outlook. Less than two weeks ago, Elliott Management sent a letter to the board of directors of EMC Corporation detailing its recommendations on the right path forward for EMC, in which Elliott holds a stake. Elliott believes that EMC’s Federation structure obscures enormous value at the company and that the board and management should pursue pathways to recognize this value, including a separation of VMware from Core EMC and/or various M&A opportunities, Elliott wrote. In response, EMC said its directors regularly review and evaluate the company's strategy with a view towards enhancing shareholder value. "Over the past few months, EMC's leadership has met with representatives of Elliott several times and has listened carefully to their ideas, as we do with all of our shareholders," the company said. Last week, HP (HPQ) announced the resumption of its share repurchase program after Reuters reported the company's merger talks with EMC had ended. HP had suspended the buyback program due to "possession of material non-public information." The tech giant said that day that it is "no longer in possession of such information." During September, Re/code reported, citing sources familiar with Oracle's plans, that the company was not interested in acquiring EMC. Meanwhile, Cisco (CSCO) CEO John Chambers also said last month at a Wall Street Journal breakfast that his company is not among the potential merger partners for EMC. Chambers said a deal between the two companies would have been done a "year or two ago" were it to happen, according to Reuters. STREET RESEARCH: On the day after its last earnings report, Brean Capital raised its price target on EMC to $33 from $30, citing the company's aggressive capital return strategy, encouraging core Storage dynamics and potential pent up demand. Tigress Financial, however, downgraded EMC to Buy from Strong Buy, citing valuation. Additionally, VMware estimated that its total available market would reach more than $60B in 2017, versus its estimate last year of a $50B+ total addressable market by 2016, Moskowitz noted. PRICE ACTION: In afternoon trading, EMC shares are up 1% to $27.22, while VMware is fractionally higher at $87.79. Over the last three months, EMC shares have declined almost 4%, while VMware's stock is down about 5.5% in that same time frame.
