07:20 EDTJDSUJDSUannounces names of new companies, departure of CFO Rex Jackson
JDSU announced yesterday the filing of a Registration Statement on Form 10 with the SEC, in connection with the spinoff of its Communications and Commercial Optical Products business, which will result in two independent, publicly traded companies. JDSU also introduced the new names of the two companies. In addition, the company announced that Rex Jackson, CFO, will depart JDSU September 30, following the expected completion of the spinoff and necessary fiscal year-end filings. Under the plan announced in September 2014, JDSU will spin off its CCOP business, to be named Lumentum Holdings. Lumentum will be a global leader in optical components and subsystems for the telecommunications market, with high growth opportunities in data communications. Alan Lowe will lead Lumentum as CEO. He joined JDSU in September 2007 as senior vice president of the Lasers business and became president of JDSU's newly formed CCOP business segment in 2008. Aaron Tachibana will be Lumentum's CFO. JDSU's Network Enablement, Service Enablement and Optical Security and Performance Products businesses will be renamed Viavi Solutions Inc. at the time of the separation. The Viavi brand is based on the company's ability to deliver the visibility and actionable insight needed to profitably manage the complex transition to next generation networks and services. Tom Waechter, JDSU's current president and CEO, will continue to lead Viavi. Rex Jackson has decided to leave JDSU on September 30, following the expected completion of the separation and the filing of Viavi's Annual Report on Form 10-K. JDSU expects to initiate a search for Jackson's replacement in due course. Current JDSU stockholders will own shares in both corporations following the separation. The spinoff is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of a number of conditions, including the Registration Statement on Form 10 for Lumentum common stock being declared effective by the SEC and certain other conditions described in the information statement included in the Registration Statement and in the agreements to be filed as exhibits to the Registration Statement and other customary matters. JDSU expects all the conditions to the spinoff to be satisfied on or before the distribution date. Approval by JDSU's stockholders is not required for completion of the separation.

10:34 EDTMSFTHP slide after currency driven guidance cut called buying opportunity
The shares of Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) are falling after the company reported lower than expected first quarter revenue and sharply lowered its free cash flow guidance and cut its fiscal year profit view. However, analysts at Citigroup, Bernstein, and Brean Capital all recommended buying the stock on weakness in separate notes to investors today. BACKGROUND: HP reported slightly higher than expected Q1 profits, but its revenue came in below expectations. The company sharply lowered its fiscal 2015 free cash flow guidance to $3.5B-$4B from its previous outlook of $6.5B-$7B. The tech giant also lowered its fiscal 2015 EPS guidance to $3.53-$3.73 from its previous outlook of $3.83-$4.30. "While we were able to manage the impact of currency in the quarter and deliver earnings as expected, we believe the impact on FY15 will be significantly greater than we anticipated in November. We'll work hard to offset these impacts through re-pricing and productivity, but fully mitigating currency movements of this size would require reducing investments and mortgaging our future. We won't do that," said HP CEO Meg Whitman. ANALYST REACTION: The decline in HP's EPS guidance was entirely due to foreign currency fluctuations, while most of the cut in its free cash flow guidance was caused by one-time costs related to the upcoming split of HP into two separate companies, Citi analyst Jim Suva stated. Most of the company's businesses "continue to perform well or at least make progress," wrote Suva. The decline in the stock has created an attractive entry point for investors who are looking to own the shares in order to benefit from the break-up, according to the analyst. He kept a Buy rating on the shares. Bernstein analyst A.M. Sacconaghi was less upbeat on HP's outlook, but also recommended buying the shares on today's weakness. Although revenue estimates for HP may be too high, the stock's valuation remains attractive, as it is the second least expensive tech stock in the S&P 500, according to Sacconaghi, who believes the shares are worth $45-$50. Cautioning that HP's stock is likely "to be in the penalty box" in the near-term, Sacconaghi nonetheless believes that the shares could get a significant boost when the company provides more information about its spin-off. He recommended that investors buy the stock on today's weakness and kept an Outperform rating on the shares. HP's fundamentals haven't changed, as the company continues to expect its revenue to remain flat in fiscal 2015, and it has not changed its capital return guidance, Brean Capital analyst Ananda Baruah stated. The company also continues to expect free cash flow of at least $5B-$6B in 2016 and beyond, Baruah added. Moreover, HP's share repurchases are unlikely to be significantly reduced as a result of the decline in its free cash flow guidance, the analyst predicted. Baruah recommended buying the stock on today's weakness and kept a $45 price target and Buy rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, HP fell 9.5% to $34.84. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other large cap PC levered names are also weak in morning trading after HP's report last night, with Microsoft (MSFT) down 0.25% and Intel (INTC) down 1.2%.
