Piper Jaffray says it still estimates the total valuation of eBay's two divisions at around $62 per share on a sum-of-the-parts basis. Piper believes Marketplace could be more attractive as an acquisition candidate post separation, which it notes investors have been thinking about since the Alibaba (BABA) IPO. The firm thinks competition from Apple Pay (AAPL) and Google Wallet (GOOG) will likely add some uncertainty to PayPal’s standalone valuation. Piper has a Neutral rating on eBay. The stock is up 9% to $57.25 after announcing it will spin off PayPal into a separate publicly traded company.

06:11 EDTAAPLEU says Apple tax deal with Ireland not at arm's length
In a letter to the Irish government, the European Commission said it is of the opinion that Apple's tax deal with Ireland does not "comply with the arm’s length principle." It added, "The Commission is of the opinion that through those rulings the Irish authorities confer an advantage on Apple. That advantage is obtained every year and on-going, when the annual tax liability is agreed upon by the tax authorities in view of that ruling...In the light of the foregoing considerations, the Commission’s preliminary view is that the tax ruling of 1990 and of 2007 in favour of the Apple group constitute State aid according to Article 107(1) TFEU. The Commission has doubts about the compatibility of such State aid with the internal market. The Commission has therefore decided to initiate the procedure laid down in Article 108(2) TFEU with respect to the measures in question. The Commission requests Ireland to submit its comments and to provide all such information as may help to assess the aid/measure, within one month of the date of receipt of this letter."

Lenovo (LNVGY) and IBM ((IBM) announced that conditions for Lenovo’s acquisition of IBM’s x86 server business have been satisfied and the parties anticipate they will begin closing the transaction effective on October 1. Lenovo is acquiring System x, BladeCenter and Flex System blade servers and switches, x86-based Flex integrated systems, NeXtScale and iDataPlex servers and associated software, blade networking and maintenance operations. IBM will retain its System z mainframes, Power Systems, Storage Systems, Power-based Flex servers, PureApplication and PureData appliances. As described in the January announcement of Lenovo’s acquisition of IBM’s x86 server business, Lenovo and IBM have also established a strategic alliance where Lenovo will serve as an Original Equipment Manufacturer to IBM and resell selected products from IBM’s storage and software portfolio, including IBM’s entry and midrange Storwize storage product family, Linear Tape Open products, IBM Flash storage arrays and elements of IBM’s system software portfolio, including Smart Cloud, General Parallel File System and Platform Computing solutions. The purchase price is approximately $2.1B. Approximately $1.8B will be paid in cash at closing after estimated adjustments and approximately $280M will be paid in Lenovo stock, based on the closing price of Lenovo’s stock on September 26. The transition will begin Wednesday in countries that are part of the initial closing, which includes most major markets. The transaction is expected to close in most other countries later this year, with the few remaining countries following in early 2015.

16:17 EDTAAPLOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were sharply lower and suffered their worst day in nearly two months, with market participants pointing to a number of reasons for the broad-based weakness. Shares of Apple (AAPL) were a drag on the market, and particularly on the Nasdaq, as the tech giant slid after a number of reports pointed to customer issues with its new iPhone 6 and an update to its mobile operating system. Cautious comments about rates by a noted Federal Reserve "hawk" may have also contributed, as well as reports that Russia may respond to U.S. and EU sanctions with a new law that will allow it to seize foreign property within the country. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose 12K to 293K in the week ended September 20, though this was below the consensus forecast for 296K new claims. Durable goods orders fell 18.2% in August following a 22.5% surge in July. However, excluding transportation, orders were up 0.7%, which was a bit above the forecast for a 0.6% increase. Additionally, the head of the Dallas Federal Reserve, Richard Fisher, said that the central bank may start raising rates in the spring of 2015, which is earlier than most market watchers expect. Also, a Reuters report that Russia has drafted a law that would allow it to seize foreign assets on Russian territory to compensate those impacted by sanctions or who have had their own property seized outside of Russia garnered significant attention. COMPANY NEWS: Apple declined $3.88, or 3.81%, to $97.87 after reports yesterday from various tech blogs said the company pulled a new update of iOS 8 after complaints that the new software was crashing cellular service and Touch ID on users' phones. Other reports indicate the new iPhone 6 is reportedly bending in some owners' pockets, though the company told CNBC's John Fortt that it has only received nine customer complaints regarding bent phones. Also, Barron's reported that Apple insiders, including CEO Tim Cook, have sold over 1.4M shares of Apple stock this month. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Swift Transport (SWFT), which gained $1.83, or 9.56%, to $20.98 after the company backed its Q3 earnings outlook and said it was "cautiously optimistic" about the trends it has seen as a result of its strategic decision regarding driver compensation. Also higher was IGI Laboratories (IG), which rose $1.36, or 18.26%, to $8.81 after the company acquired the regulatory rights and related documents and records for 18 drug products from AstraZeneca (AZN). Among the noteworthy losers was BlackBerry (BBRY), which fell 71c, or 6.76%, to $9.80 the day before it reports on its quarterly results. Ahead of tomorrow morning's report, BGC Financial analyst Colin Gillis downgraded shares of the smartphone maker to Hold from Buy, saying the company's results "may prove underwhelming." Also lower were shares of adhesives maker H.B. Fuller (FUL), which fell $6.30, or 14.32%, to $37.68 after the company's third quarter results and fourth quarter profit outlook missed analysts' consensus estimates. INDEXES: The Dow plunged 264.26, or 1.54%, to 16,945.80, the Nasdaq dropped 88.47, or 1.94%, to 4,466.75, and the S&P 500 declined 32.31, or 1.62%, to 1,965.99.

14:29 EDTIBM, AAPLEarnings Preview: BlackBerry downgraded at BGC ahead of tomorrow's report
BlackBerry (BBRY) is expected to report second quarter earnings before the open on Friday, September 26, with a conference call scheduled for 8:00 am ET. BlackBerry manufactures and markets mobile devices, such as smartphones, and creates software and services for those devices. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are expecting losses per share of (16c) on revenue of $949.64M. The consensus range is (36c)-(4c) for EPS on revenue of $855.9M-$1.16B, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: On June 19, BlackBerry reported a loss per share, excluding certain items, of (11c), versus analysts' consensus estimate of a (26c) per share loss. The company's revenue of $966M was a bit higher than the consensus expectation near $963M. The smartphone maker said that it had recognized revenue on about 1.6M of its smartphones, up from about 1.3M during the previous quarter. Moreover, it said that it was close to reaching the breakeven point on hardware sales and added that it expects its subscriber numbers to be steady going forward. BlackBerry should be profitable sometime in fiscal 2016, company CEO John Chen stated. NEWS: On July 21, BlackBerry announced that it has named Marty Beard as its Chief Operating Officer. Prior to the appointment, Beard had been chairman and CEO of LiveOps. After Apple (AAPL) and IBM (IBM) announced an enterprise partnership, BlackBerry CEO John Chen told Financial Times on July 24 that his company was in early talks with companies about working together in parts of the enterprise market, though he declined to comment on who the discussions have been with. Last month, BlackBerry announced that it has named Sandeep Chennakeshu to lead a new business unit to be called BlackBerry Technology Solutions, or BTS. The BTS business unit comprises BlackBerry's technology assets, including QNX, Project Ion, Certicom and Paratek as well as BlackBerry's patent portfolio. Two weeks ago, BlackBerry announced that it has acquired Movirtu, a provider of virtual identity solutions for mobile operators that allows multiple numbers to be active on a single device. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed, though the next day Wells Fargo wrote that it thinks the deal brings a degree of differentiation to BlackBerry's mobile device management solutions and will make BYOD better for both companies and employees. Yesterday, BlackBerry launched the Passport, a high-end smartphone featuring a large square touch screen and new QWERTY touch-enabled keyboard. Inspired by actual passports, the device was "purpose-built for productivity-driven business professionals," the company stated. STREET RESEARCH: On the day of BlackBerry's last quarterly report, BGC Financial said that it thought that the negative thesis on BlackBerry was falling apart, at least in the short-term. However, this afternoon BGC Financial analyst Colin Gillis downgraded shares of BlackBerry to Hold from Buy, saying the company's quarterly results tomorrow "may prove underwhelming." Gillis expects BlackBerry's revenue declines to continue in the current quarter and noted that his estimate is below consensus. He has an $11 price target for the shares. Also today, MKM Partners stated in a note to investors that it believes BlackBerry's new Passport phone is for "hardcore entrenched BB users" and unlikely to make much of a difference. The firm kept a Neutral rating on the stock with a $10 price target. PRICE ACTION: On the day of its last report, shares of BlackBerry climbed 9.65% to close at $9.09. Since the day after that initial pop, the stock has gained about another 10%. In afternoon trading, BlackBerry was down 51c, or almost 5%, to $10.00.

The analyst is not surprised by reports that EMC's discussions with Hewlett-Packard stalled given the lack of synergies and views Cisco as a logical buyer due to strong synergies and defensive reasons. Macquarie said VMware (VMW) would make Cisco the leader in the growing Software Defined DataCenter market, allowing it to offer EMC a better deal than any other potential acquirer. Finally, the firm does not view the status-quo as a compelling option for EMC given the recent share strength, aggressive street estimates, and the upcoming retirement of Joe Tucci in February. Macquarie rates EMC a Neutral with a $32 price target, up from $28.

12:50 EDTHPQEMC jumps after reports detail takeover talks
The shares of cloud application provider EMC (EMC) are rising in a down market after Wall Street Journal reported that the company had held talks about selling itself to HP (HPQ) and Dell. WHAT'S NEW: EMC held on-and-off merger talks with HP for almost a year, but those talks have ended, Wall Street Journal reported today. Dell also held talks with EMC about a takeover, the newspaper added. According to a CNBC’s David Faber, the takeover talks between HP and EMC went on for months, but the two sides couldn't agree on a price, as EMC wanted HP to pay a large premium to its stock price. Tiernan Ray of Barron's added today that the takeover talks between the companies could resume, citing a source. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The New York Post reported on September 11 that EMC was considering selling its 80% stake in cloud computing infrastructure provider VMware (VMW). UBS analyst Steven Milunovich responded to The Post's report by writing on the same day that EMC had become a potential takeover target itself. HP, Oracle (ORCL) and Cisco (CSCO) could buy EMC, the analyst wrote. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, EMC added 1% to $30, while VMware added 1% to $95.
12:26 EDTHPQEMC, HP merger talks could resume, Barron's reports
The merger talks between EMC (EMC) and HP (HPQ) could resume, Tiernan Ray of Barron's reports, citing a source. The companies had discussed HP selling its printer division, but only as "a down the road thing," once a deal was completed, Tiernan added, citing the source. Cisco (CSCO) and Oracle (ORCL) are still considered possible buyers for EMC, the reporter noted. Reference Link

06:55 EDTAAPLApple launches new iOS 8 phones with 'kill switch'
Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon revealed that new iPhones sold with iOS 8 will include Apple’s theft deterrent system, Activation Lock, as a default setting. This marks the first time in the history of the smartphone industry that theft deterrent technology is available by default on new products. In addition to being standard on the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, newly-sold iPhones will also prompt users to upgrade to iOS 8. Additionally, the new operating system can also be installed on most previous models of iPhones. As co-chairs of the Secure Our Smartphone, or S.O.S. Initiative, Attorney General Schneiderman and District Attorney Gascon led the effort to call on the wireless industry to address the global rise in smartphone thefts. The ultimate goal of SOS is for every mobile device to have a “kill switch” on by default. A default solution is imperative because it ensures that the device will be worthless to thieves.

VirnetX Holding Corporation (VHC) announced that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, or USCAFC, issued their ruling in the VirnetX vs. Apple (AAPL) infringement lawsuit. In that ruling, The USCAFC affirmed the jury's finding that all 4 of VirnetX's patents are valid, confirmed the jury's finding of infringement of VPN on Demand under many of the asserted claims of the '135 and '151 patents, and confirmed the district's court's decision to allow evidence concerning the VirnetX's licenses and royalty rates in connection with the determination of damages. In its order, the USCAFC also vacated the jury's damages award and the district court's claim construction with respect to parts of the '504 and '211 patents and remanded the damages award and determination of infringement with respect to FaceTime, for further proceedings consistent with its opinion. "While we are disappointed that the Federal Circuit has vacated portions of the judgment for further proceedings, we are bolstered by the fact that the patents were again found valid and that it was confirmed that Apple's VPN on Demand functionality infringes the VirnetX patents," said Kendall Larsen, VirnetX CEO and president. "We look forward to readdressing the FaceTime infringement and damages issues as soon as possible."
12:18 EDTAAPLOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday, with some attributing the move to noted Fed watcher Jon Hilsenrath of The Wall Street Journal giving the opinion that he does not believe the central bank will drop the language that interest rates will "remain low for an extended period of time" when it issues its latest policy statement tomorrow. The averages began the session in negative territory and appeared to be heading for another listless day of trading. The market drifted lower during the opening hour but the Dow and S&P crossed into positive ground and the Nasdaq eventually followed. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Producer Price Index was unchanged in August, as expected. The core reading, which excludes food and energy, increased 0.1%, also matching expectations. Of note, the Fed's FOMC rate setting group kicked off its two-day policy meeting. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple (AAPL) slid over 1% after Chinese-language 21st Century Business Herald reportedly said the company might not get the necessary approval to launch its new iPhone 6 models throughout China until next year after failing to come to an agreement with a regulator in the nation. Shares of China Mobile (CHL), which is buy far the largest phone carrier in China, slipped 2% after the report... Glimcher Realty Trust (GRT) surged 29% after it agreed to sell itself to fellow REIT Washington Prime Group (WPG) for $14.20 per share. Washington has agreed to buy Glimcher for about $4.3B in a cash and stock deal. Glimcher shareholders will receive $10.40 in cash and 0.1989 of a share of Washington stock upon the closing of the transaction, the companies stated. As part of the deal, Simon Property Group (SPG), which completed its separation of Washington Prime Group this May, agreed to buy two shopping malls owned by Glimcher for $1.09B in cash. Shares of fellow mall owning REITs CBL & Associates (CBL), Rouse Properties (RSE) and Pennsylvania REIT (PEI) rose following the deal announcement. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Bill Barrett (BBG), which rose 12% after selling natural gas, oil and natural gas liquids assets in the Piceance Basin in Colorado for $525M to Vanguard Natural (VNR). Vanguard Natural also gained 1% following the deal announcement. Among the noteworthy losers was VirnetX (VHC), which plunged nearly 50% after an appeals court vacated a jury’s damages award in its patent case with Apple. Also lower were shares of Atlantic Power (AT), which dropped 32% after announcing that it concluded a sale or merger of the company is not in the best interests of the company or its stakeholders and the company cut its annual dividend. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 88.18, or 0.52%, to 17,119.32, the Nasdaq was up 16.11, or 0.36%, to 4,535.01, and the S&P 500 was up 11.94, or 0.6%, to 1,996.07.
