12:01 EDTEMCVMware sinks after enterprise licenses, outlook may have disappointed
Shares of VMware (VMW), a provider of virtualization infrastructure solutions, are among today's losers despite the company having reported results that beat the consensus forecast. Several analysts contended that the company reaffirming its full-year outlook and reporting lower than expected enterprise license agreements as a percentage of bookings may have disappointed investors. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, VMware reported first quarter earnings per share of 80c and revenue of $1.36B, compared to expectations of 79c and $1.35B, respectively. VMware said Q1 license and total bookings growth was less than 10% compared to the prior year. VMware forecast Q2 revenue of $1.43B-$1.47B, compared to consensus of $1.44B. The company reaffirmed its fiscal 2014 revenue view of $5.94B-$6.1B, versus consensus of $6.03B. It also expects FY14 non-GAAP operating margin of approximately 31%. FY14 license revenue was expected to be $2.55B-$2.63B, up 12%-16% from the prior year. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, research firms Oppenheimer, Pacific Crest, and Raymond James all recommended buying VMware on any weakness. Pacific Crest said lower than expected enterprise license agreements as a percentage of bookings and weaker overall bookings growth disappointed the Street. Another firm, Janney Capital, said it believes investors may be slightly disappointed that VMware reiterated its prior guidance after its Q1 EPS slightly beat expectations. However, the firm believes the stock's valuation offers a good entry point and reiterates its Buy rating on the name. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, VMware fell $9.15, or 8.7%, to $96 on heavy trading volume. Despite today's pull back, the stock is up approximately 27% over the past twelve months. ANOTHER TO WATCH: EMC (EMC), which is the majority owner of VMware, reported earnings and revenue that were roughly in-line with expectations and raised its quarterly dividend. However, EMC lowered its 2014 EPS outlook to $1.90 from $1.95, which was below the consensus $1.94 forecast, and its shares were down 3% to $25.94 near noon.

07:12 EDTEMCEMC lowers 2014 EPS outlook to $1.90 from $1.95, consensus $1.94
Sees 2014 revenue $24.575B, consensus $24.51B. EMC expects to repurchase an aggregate of $2B of the company's common stock in 2014. The company said, "While planned business practice changes had a negative impact on year-over-year revenue and EPS growth in the quarter, we are very confident we are on the right track with our Federation model and technologies. With our strong foothold in Second Platform environments and some of the most exciting IT assets in the industry helping us propel customers to the Third Platform of IT, EMC is well positioned to meet our stated 2014 targets."
07:09 EDTEMCEMC raises quarterly dividend to 11.5c from 10c
EMC said its board approved a 15% increase in the quarterly cash dividend paid to shareholders. The first increased dividend of 11.5c per share of common stock will be paid on July 23, to shareholders of record as of the close of business on July 1.
