Netlist (NLST) announced that the Examiner in the consolidated reexamination of U.S. Pat. No. 7,619,912 issued an Answer maintaining the patentability of 92 claims related to LRDIMM. The reexaminations were brought in the United States Patent and Trademark Office by Google (GOOG), Inphi Corporation, and SMART Modular Technologies. The 92 patentable claims are generally directed to the fundamental concept of rank multiplication which is integral to the design of the LRDIMM. The Examiner issued the Answer on January 14, 2015, in response to voluminous appeal briefs filed by Google, Inphi, and SMART Modular. The Examiner considered arguments from all parties and ultimately maintained his conclusions as to the patentability of these claims, while maintaining the rejection of 11 other claims. The parties will now have the opportunity to file rebuttal briefs before the reexamination proceeds to the Patent Trial and Appeals Board for oral arguments, likely later this year or early next. The '912 Patent is also the subject of litigation between Netlist and Google in the Northern District of California and Netlist and Inphi in the Central District of California. Both sets of litigation have been stayed pending the outcome of this and other reexamination proceedings.

Baird believes investor sentiment for Google may be overly negative, exacerbated by the accelerating shift to mobile. The firm believes that 50%-60% of Google's revenues are already coming from Mobile, Video, Local Enterprise and other segments, which removes worries about desktop dependence. Baird also noted the company's valuation is at the low end of comparable multiples, suggesting a favorable risk/reward scenario. Baird reiterated its Outperform rating and $680 price target on Google shares.

11:57 EDTMSFTHP 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.

Google (GOOG)-backed 23andMe announced an agreement with Pfizer (PFE) that will provide Pfizer with access to 23andMe’s research platform, including services and Research Portal analysis of 23andMe’s genotyped population of over 800,000 individuals, of which more than 80 percent have consented to participate in research. 23andMe’s Research Portal enables qualified and approved scientists outside of 23andMe the opportunity to leverage the company’s unique research model while still protecting the privacy and security of 23andMe’s customers. As a part of the agreement, the companies will collaborate on certain genome-wide association studies, surveys, and clinical trial recruitment. One of these collaborations will be a longitudinal study to better understand the genetics of lupus. This study will entail enrollment and genotyping of 5,000 people into a new lupus research community, and include the integration of medical records, targeted bio-sampling along with genetic information for all participants. This announcement follows a collaboration between 23andMe and Pfizer to enroll 10,000 people with Inflammatory Bowel Disease in a research initiative designed to explore the genetic factors associated with the onset, progression, severity and response to treatments for IBD. Nearly 4,000 patients have been enrolled in the community since August 2014.
