06:26 EDTHPQHP information chief to clone computer programs to smooth transition, WSJ says
Later this week, Hewlett-Packard is expected to disclose the financial outlines of its successor companies for the first time: HP Inc., which will sell PCs and printers, and Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, a supplier of corporate technology, the Wall Street Journal reports. Scott Spradley, chief information officer at the current HP, soon will start the process of cloning 2,600 internal computer programs, separating their data and restarting them in an effort to keep operations running amid an arduous restructuring effort, the report says.

05:59 EDTINTC, HPQ, MSFTGartner: Worldwide IT spending on pace to decline 5.5% in 2015
Worldwide IT spending is on pace to total $3.5T in 2015, a 5.5% decline from 2014, according to the latest forecast by Gartner, Inc. Analysts attribute the decline to the rising U.S. dollar. In constant-currency terms, the market is projected to grow 2.5%. In Gartner's previous forecast in April, it had forecast IT spending to decline 1.3% in U.S. dollars and grow 3.1% in constant currency. "We want to stress that this is not a market crash. Such are the illusions that large swings in the value of the U.S. dollar versus other currencies can create," said John-David Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner. "However, there are secondary effects to the rising U.S. dollar. Vendors do have to raise prices to protect costs and margins of their products, and enterprises and consumers will have to make new purchase decisions in light of the new prices." Communications services will continue to be the largest IT spending segment in 2015 with spending at nearly $1.5T. However, this segment is also experiencing the strongest decline among the five IT sectors. In the device market, mobile phones continue to be the leading segment, with growth in Apple phones, especially in China, keeping overall phone spending consistent. However, overall smartphone unit growth will start to flatten. The PC and tablet market continues to weaken. The expected 10 percent increase in average PC pricing in currency-impacted countries is going ahead, delaying purchases even more than expected. Excessive PC inventory levels, especially in Western Europe, need to be cleared, which will delay Windows 10 inventory in the second half of the year. Within the data center systems segment, storage and network markets are both expected to see weaker growth in U.S. dollar terms as a result of the appreciation of the U.S. dollar. Reference Link

10:02 EDTHPQHP deal for EMC 'more than a distinct possibility,' says Raymond James
Noting that shares of both HP (HPQ) and EMC (EMC) have been stagnant, Raymond James analyst Brian Alexander repeated that he believes shareholders of both would earn substantial returns from a deal between the two and that he thinks an HP acquisition of EMC is "more than a distinct possibility." Alexander previously said in a note to investors on June 4 that he believed HP will ultimately buy EMC, including VMware (VMW). Assuming EMC is acquired for $32-$34 at various combinations of debt/stock, accretion for HP ranges from 39%-52%, Alexander calculates. Raymond James has a Market Perform rating on HP, a Strong Buy rating on EMC and an Outperform rating on VMware.
08:08 EDTHPQJefferies sees recent weakness as attractive entry point in PC names
Jefferies analyst James Kisner cut his PC unit expectations for 2015 and 2016, citing recent negative data points including Micron's (MU) commentary and guidance, but added that he believes PC names may be finding a bottom and that the pullback in Western Digital (WDC), Seagate (STX), and HP (HPQ) creates an attractive entry point in all three stocks. Kisner sees the most potential upside in Western Digital, but lowered his price target on its shares to $116, and said HP may have the least potential downside, cutting his price target on the computer maker to $40.50. The firm keeps Buy rating on both HDD makers and on HP.
