15:54 EDTHPQ, CSCO, AAPLApple, Cisco offer better prospects than HP, at same multiples, Barron's says
It's also too early to make a case forHewlett-Packard (HPQ) shares, which traded last week around $30. Some bulls, most notably Bernstein Research's Toni Sacconaghi, think the shares could rise 25% over the next year as management delivers on its lowered expectations. HP shares are cheap at 7x earnings forecasts for the next four quarters. But other tech companies are almost as cheap, after you factor in the net cash on their balance sheets, and earnings aer rising rather than falling. Apple’s (AAPL) P/E is 9, while Cisco’s (CSCO) is 8x.Reference Link

09:56 EDTAAPLIDC: Apple leads smartphone vendors in China during Q1
IDC’s latest Mobile Phone Tracker shows the China smartphone market contracted by 4% year-on-year with 98.8M units shipped in the first quarter of 2015. This is the first time in six years that the China smartphone market declined YoY as the market continues to mature. On a QoQ basis, the market contracted 8% on the back of a large inventory buildup at the end of last year. The study said Apple (AAPL) was the top smartphone vendor in China in the first quarter, with consumers still having a strong appetite for the larger screens on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Xiaomi slipped to the second position as it faced strong competition from other vendors in the low to mid-range segment of the market, while Huawei maintained third position as it saw a good uptake in the mid-range segment. Samsung (SSNLF) and Lenovo (LNVGY) both led the market at least once last year, but rankings have since changed quickly, highlighting the volatility of consumers' brand preference in China.
