18:37 EDTINTC, HPQ, MSFTIntel is in the fight of its life in tablets and phones, Barron's reports
The degree to which Intel (INTC) and Microsoft (MSFT) seem to be pinning their hopes on the ultrabook has some investors uneasy, Barron's Technology Trader columnist Tiernan Ray notes. Ultrabooks are supposed to stoke interest in PC hardware again, and numerous second- and third-generation models will be rolling out from Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and others this year. Intel's forecast of Q2 gross profit as a percentage of revenue came in lower than expected. This was because Intel is spending money to ramp up manufacturing of the next significant microprocessor, the one meant to spark those ultrabook sales, called "Ivy Bridge." That much spending in front of a big bet means potential disappointment, according to skeptics such as JPMorgan's Christopher Danely. Goldman Sachs' James Covello doesn't care about ultrabooks -- he simply noted that when Intel's gross margin declines, the stock tends to decline. But, as with Microsoft (MSFT), Ray says, the market is rewarding decent performance -- warts and all. Intel's 3% dividend yield and its reasonable forward price/earnings ratio of just 11, not counting its cash, offer support. Reference Link

06:04 EDTMSFTOracle says extending enterprise cloud portfolio
At a live event yesterday, Oracle (ORCL) Executive Chairman of the Board and CTO Larry Ellison announced new additions to the Oracle Cloud Platform, a comprehensive, integrated suite of services that make it easier for developers, IT professionals, business users and analysts to build, extend and integrate cloud applications. With more than 24 new cloud services, the Oracle Cloud Platform "extends Oracle's leadership with the world's broadest and deepest portfolio" of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. Newly available Oracle Cloud services include, Oracle Database Cloud - Exadata, Oracle Archive Storage Cloud, Oracle Big Data Cloud, Oracle Integration Cloud, Oracle Mobile Cloud, and Oracle Process Cloud. The Oracle Cloud Platform helps customers build new applications, extend existing ones, and easily move existing on-premises workloads to the cloud with no application changes. The services are designed to maximize end user experience and productivity; enable developers to manage and analyze data, rapidly develop, test and deploy applications; enable architects to quickly integrate across on-premises and cloud applications; and enable business users to drive rich business insights and enterprise collaboration. With the Oracle Cloud Platform, customers and partners are able to take advantage of the industry-leading Oracle middleware and database software that thousands of global organizations already use to run their own businesses, all delivered via cloud. The extensive level of automation that has been engineered into the Oracle Cloud, results in faster time-to-value, greater innovation, and lower cost for customers. "Oracle is growing really fast. We sold $426M worth of business in SaaS and PaaS last quarter, a 200 percent increase over the same quarter last year. That's an industry record, no company has ever sold that much in just one quarter," said Ellison. "Oracle is the only company on the planet that can deliver a complete, integrated, standards-based suite of services at every layer of the cloud. Those technology advantages enable us to be much more cost-effective than our competitors. Our new Archive Storage service goes head-to-head with Amazon Glacier (AMZN) and it's one-tenth their price."

16:32 EDTINTCAMD considers spinoff or break-up, Reuters says
AMD (AMD) has hired a consulting firm to help it review a potential split or spinoff, Reuters reported late Friday, citing three people familiar with the matter. Reuters notes that AMD may be seeking to better compete with Intel (INTC), and sources said one option being considered is to separate AMD's server business from its graphics and licensing arm. Though the company had previously decided against such an option, sources noted that CEO Lisa Su believes the move is worth reconsidering. Reference Link
