08:15 EDTMSFTSalesforce acquisition still possible, says JMP Securities
After Salesforce reported stronger than expected results, JMP Securities indicated that the results, along with statements by the company's CEO, make an acquisition seem less likely. However, the firm continues to believe that Google (GOOG), Oracle (ORCL), or Microsoft (MSFT) could buy the company. All three potential acquirers have significant cash and strong potential synergies with Salesforce, and the world is moving to the cloud, the firm explained. It raised its price target on Salesforce to $80 from $75 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

15:55 EDTFTNTCareFirst BlueCross BlueShield confirms cyberattack
CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield has confirmed that cyberattackers gained limited, unauthorized access to a single CareFirst database. This was discovered as a part of the companyís ongoing Information Technology security efforts in the wake of recent cyberattacks on health insurers. CareFirst engaged Mandiant, a unit of FireEye (FEYE), to conduct an end-to-end examination of its IT environment. The review determined that in June 2014 cyberattackers gained access to a single database in which CareFirst stores data that members and other individuals enter to access CareFirstís websites and online services. Approximately 1.1M current and former CareFirst members and individuals who do business with CareFirst online who registered to use CareFirstís websites prior to June 20, 2014 are affected by this event. All affected members will receive a letter from CareFirst offering two free years of credit monitoring and identity theft protection. Mandiant completed its review and found no indication of any other prior or subsequent attack or evidence that other personal information was accessed. Other publicly traded companies in the cybersecurity space include Barracuda Networks (CUDA), Check Point (CHKP), F5 Networks (FFIV), Fortinet (FTNT), Imperva (IMPV), Palo Alto (PANW), Proofpoint (PFPT), Qualys (QLYS) and Symantec (SYMC).

11:15 EDTINTCAnalyst says Intel takeover of Altera more likely than not
Citi, in a note to investors today, said that the chances of Altera (ALTR) being acquired by Intel (INTC) were greater than 50%. The note comes after multiple news outlets reported yesterday that the two companies have resumed talks about Intel buying the smaller chip maker. ANALYST REACTION: News reports suggest that the odds of Intel buying Altera seem to have increased, wrote Citi analyst Christopher Danely. A deal is more likely to occur than not, according to the analyst. However, he does not believe that the transaction is a done deal. Moreover, the analyst kept a Neutral rating on Intel shares, saying that he does not anticipate changing his rating even if a takeover is consummated. In its own note on Altera this morning, Pacific Crest said it views the breakdown in Dennard scaling and Dark Silicon as an underappreciated positive for the maker of field-programmable gate arrays. The firm sees fair value for Altera at $55-$60 and still thinks that an acquisition by Intel makes sense strategically. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Altera added 0.5% to $47.16, while Intel fell 1% to $33.06.

08:33 EDTINTC, MSFTMorgan Stanley cautious in near-term on PC names
Morgan Stanley is more cautious on PC names near-term, given PC and HDD inventory builds quarter-to-date and weaker April ODM sales. The firm's analyst team continues to believe Q1 was a bottom in year-over-year growth, but now expects normal Q2 seasonal growth instead of above normal and thinks any recovery will likely be delayed until Q3. Morgan Stanley is cautiously optimistic on Western Digital (WDC) due to its diverse revenue drivers, sees value creation catalysts for Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and believes Microsoft (MSFT) shares reflect the challenging PC market and Win 10. The firm is more cautious on semis such as NVIDIA (NVDA) given higher valuations, share loss at Advanced Micro (AMD), potential 2H margin pressure at Intel (INTC), and Morgan is cautious on PC DRAM stocks near-term due to weaker pricing.
