09:14 EDTMSFTBrean says take profits in Salesforce after takeover report
Brean Capital analyst Sarah Hindlian recommends taking profits in Salesforce after the stock rallied 12% yesterday. Hindlian views a sale of Salesforce as "highly unlikely." She notes Brean's work indicates such a deal would be unlikely on both price and valuation as the company's Founder and CEO Marc Benioff would be unwilling to sell without a “substantial” premium. The analyst also questions if Salesforce has any interest in selling itself. Further, she believes a takeover by either Oracle (ORCL) or Microsoft (MSFT) would raise regulatory issues. Hindlian keeps a Hold rating on Salesforce.

06:51 EDTMSFTPiper sees Salesforce takeover price upwards of $100/share
Piper Jaffray followed JPMorgan in predicting a Salesforce takeover price upwards of $100 per share. Piper calls Salesforce a "very attractive and unique asset," but admits it has no proprietary information about a potential deal. Oracle (ORCL), Microsoft (MSFT), IBM (IBM) and the large Internet centric vendors are the only tech companies likely to afford Salesforce, Piper believes. It points out that while Oracle denied it made an offer, the $10B in debt raised earlier this week by the company is likely to keep it near the top of the potential acquirer list. Piper says Salesforce potentially being in play raises the potential for any pure cloud vendor to be taken over, including Workday (WDAY) and ServiceNow (NOW), as well as "host of smaller pure cloud vendors and fast-growing non-cloud companies" such as Splunk (SPLK). The firm keeps an Overweight rating on Salesforce with an $80 price target.
06:31 EDTMSFTMicrosoft would likely sell off on Salesforce acquisition, says Citigroup
Citigroup believes that should Salesforce (CRM) be up for sale as Bloomberg yesterday suggested, Microsoft (MSFT) could be the most likely the suitor. Citi thinks Microsoft shares would likely trade lower should such a deal occur, as it would signal the company is in a "more tenuous position in commercial business than investors currently think." The firm lists Oracle (ORCL), IBM (IBM) and Google (GOOG) as other potential suitors for Salesforce. With less upside now to its Saleforce price target, Citi prefers Check Point (CHKP) and VMware (VMW) for growth investors and ServiceNow (NOW) for exposure to software-as-a-service. It keeps a Buy rating on Salesforce with am unchanged price target of $78.
06:10 EDTMSFTJefferies sees 'very low' probability of Salesforce takeover
Jefferies views the 12% rally in Salesforce (CRM) shares yesterday after Bloomberg reported the company is fielding takeover offers as an overreaction. The firm says the probability of a sale is "very low, especially with the stock already trading at an inflated valuation." It views Microsoft (MSFT) as the most likely suitor, with Oracle (ORCL), IBM (IBM) and Google (GOOG) potentially in the mix. Jefferies keeps an Underperform rating on Salesforce with a $49 price target. The stock closed yesterday up $7.76 to $74.65.

17:16 EDTMSFTSalesforce could be worth $100/share in a takeover, says JPMorgan
After Bloomberg reported this afternoon that Salesforce has hired bankers to field takeover inquiries, JPMorgan analyst Mark Murphy told investors that he believes the stock could be worth $100 in a buyout. Shares closed the trading day up $7.76 to $74.65. A deal would be the largest in software history, and only a short list of companies could pull it off, Murphy wrote. Those companies are Microsoft (MSFT), Oracle (ORCL), IBM (IBM) and SAP (SAP), he believes. After pointing out JPMorgan has "no conclusive evidence to confirm or dispel the speculation," Murphy noted Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff was sitting in the front row of the Microsoft Build Conference this morning and that Oracle just raised $10B of debt. The analyst calls Salesforce a "rare asset" and the "pioneering leader of the cloud computing." He has an Overweight rating on the shares.

The stock is trading just below its 50-day moving average heading into earnings. On a technical basis the stock does exhibit a topping pattern that could continue on weak news, or be resolved by a strong move higher. The first big level of support is at the $90 area. A move to that level, and eventually lower, would confirm the topping pattern has become dominant and would turn the trend bearish. Support below $90 would be at $88.23. If the news is a bullish surprise, initial resistance would be at the 50-day at $99.98. Thereafter resistance would be at $104.95 and $109.09.

The analyst said there is emerging evidence that Azure has turned positive on gross margins and Office 365 margins have expanded sharply. Shurland believes Microsoft will begin to show low single digit revenue growth in 2016, with about 10% EPS growth from share repurchase leverage and with a 2.9% dividend yield.

18:27 EDTINTC, QCOMSemiconductor stocks under pressure after TI, Qualcomm report financial results
Semiconductor stocks are under pressure after earnings reports from Texas Instruments (TXN) and Qualcomm (QCOM). TEXAS INSTRUMENTS: TI reported first quarter results that were lower than analyst expectations, and gave second quarter guidance below consensus estimates. In its Q1 earnings press release, Texas Instruments said its outlook for Q2 is for earnings per share between 60c-70c and revenue in the range of $3.12B-$3.38B. "Our estimates assume continuing weakness in our communications equipment and personal electronics markets, particularly for wireless infrastructure equipment and PCs, respectively. We also do not expect a near-term rebound in foreign currency exchange rates. The annual effective tax rate for 2015 is expected to be about 30%." QUALCOMM: Qualcomm reported Q2 results that were better than analyst's average estimates, but lowered its fiscal year 2015 EPS and revenue views. Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf said, "While we remain confident in the significant growth opportunities ahead, we are reducing our QCT outlook for fiscal 2015, primarily due to the increased impact of customer share shifts within the premium tier and a decline in our share at a large customer." PRICE ACTION: In after-hours trading, shares of Texas Instruments are down over 6%, while Qualcomm shares are down almost 3%. Other publicly traded companies in the space include AMD (AMD), Intel (INTC), Marvell (MRVL), Microchip (MCHP), Micron (MU), NVIDIA (NVDA), Altera (ALTR), Xilinx (XLNX), and Maxim Integrated (MXIM).

14:47 EDTINTCEarnings Watch: Texas Instruments reports amid M&A focus in semiconductor space
Texas Instruments (TXN) is expected to report first quarter earnings after the close on Wednesday, April 22, with a conference call scheduled for 5:30 pm ET. Texas Instruments is a global semiconductor manufacturer operating in four segments: Analog, Embedded Processing, Wireless and Other. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 62c on revenue of $3.2B. The consensus range is 61c-64c for EPS on revenue of $3.18B-$3.21B, according to First Call. On its last earning call, Texas Instruments said it expected Q1 EPS of 57c-67c and revenue of $3.07B-$3.33B. LAST QUARTER: On January 26, Texas Instruments reported adjusted fourth quarter EPS of 69c, which matched consensus expectations at that time. Its Q4 revenue of $3.27B came in just above the consensus forecast of $3.26B. Texas Instruments said its inventory ended the quarter at 117 days and noted on its associated conference call that it believe inventories were at "healthy levels." Texas Instruments also said then that it expected its embedded operating margins to increase. STREET RESEARCH: The day after TI's last quarterly report, Ascendiant raised its price target for Texas Instruments shares to $64 from $56 and reiterated a Buy rating on the stock. The firm attributed the post-earnings slide the stock experienced then to profit taking, rather than a fundamental disappointment. That same week, Argus increased its price target on Texas Instruments to $62 from $54 and said it expected the company's operating trends to continue to strengthen. Argus kept a Buy rating on the shares. Acquiring companies in the semiconductor space "can materially outperform the market," Jefferies analyst Mark Lipacis wrote in a note to investors on March 9. At that time, Lipacis identified Texas Instruments, NXP Semiconductors (NXPI), Avago (AVGO), Marvell (MRVL), Maxim Integrated (MXIM), Broadcom (BRCM), Altera (ALTR), and Xilinx (XLNX) as companies that were well-positioned to make acquisitions in the future. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On March 1, NXP Semiconductors and Freescale Semiconductor (FSL) announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which NXP will merge with Freescale in a transaction valuing the combined enterprise at just over $40B. Recent media reports suggested that Intel's (INTC) talks to acquire Altera stalled when the latter wanted more than Intel was willing to pay. PRICE ACTION: Since the day after last quarter's report, Texas Instruments' stock has rallied nearly 7%. In afternoon trading, Texas Instruments gained over 1% to $58.76.

12:31 EDTINTCOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after having been on a bit of a see-saw during morning trading. The averages opened in positive territory, soon turned negative, then back into positive ground following the release of a better than expected existing home sales report. The housing data was followed by a lift in the averages, which remained in positive ground near noon. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., existing home sales rose 6.1% to a 5.19M rate in March, which was better than the expected 3.1% increase to a rate of 5.03M. Crude oil inventories built up by 5.32M barrels last week, which was more than the consensus forecast for a 3.2M barrel build. In Asia, Japan's Nikkei 225 average closed above 20,000 for the first time since April 2000. In Europe, Germany raised its economic growth forecast for 2015 to 1.8%, which was up from the 1.5% growth it said it expected in January. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of McDonald's (MCD) advanced 2% after the company reported headline earnings that missed expectations but also said it is developing a turnaround plan to improve its performance and deliver "enduring profitable growth" that it plans to share in the first week of May. Also rising after its quarterly report was another globally recognized brand, Coca-Cola (KO), whose shares gained 1% after its comparable earnings per share topped the consensus estimate. A third member of the Dow, Boeing (BA), slid over 2.5% after its earnings beat expectations but its revenue fell short of the consensus forecast... Visa (V) rose 5% and MasterCard (MA) advanced over 4% after China's State Council announced overnight that the country will regulate the market access for bankcard transaction clearing institutions, which analysts think might allow both companies to compete for the processing of domestic transactions in the country. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Angie's List (ANGI), which jumped 12% after the company reported it was profitable in the first quarter and announced an exclusive relationship that will see carpet manufacturer Shaw Industries give the company's members exclusive product offers. Also higher was ASML (ASML), which gained 11% after announcing that it has signed an agreement with one of its "major U.S. customers" to deliver a minimum of 15 ASML EUV, or Extreme Ultraviolet, lithography systems. Afterward, Summit Research said it thinks the most likely buyer is Intel (INTC), which the firm believes does not want to be left behind if TSMC (TSM) puts EUV to use in 10nm processing. Among the noteworthy losers was Natural Resource Partners (NRP), which dropped 19% after the company slashed its quarterly distribution by 75% to 9c per unit. Also lower following their earnings reports were ADTRAN (ADTN), which fell over 9%, Cree (CREE), which slid 9%, and Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), which declined 6%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 28.69, or 0.16%, to 17,978.28, the Nasdaq was up 6.66, or 0.13%, to 5,020.77, and the S&P 500 was up 5.24, or 0.25%, to 2,102.53.

05:43 EDTINTCAltera downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Ruben Roy downgraded Altera (ALTR) to Neutral from Overweight saying takeover speculation has driven the valuation above a fundamentals based fair value. He believes an acquisition by Intel (INTC) makes sense, but at a reasonable valuation. The analyst thinks a higher premium than $54 per share is unlikely. Piper keeps a $42 price target for shares of Altera. Roy still views the longer-term prospects for the programmable logic device companies favorably and thinks Altera is better positioned near-term versus Xilinx (XLNX). Shares of Altera closed yesterday up 8c to $43.24.
