18:17 EDTLNVGYHP, Lenovo shares up fractionally following PC shipment data
Shares of HP (HPQ) and Lenovo (LNVGY) are up fractionally after second quarter PC shipment data was released by Gartner and IDC. WHAT'S NEW: After eight quarters of declining shipments, worldwide PC shipments experienced flat growth in the second quarter of 2014, according to preliminary results by Gartner (IT). Worldwide PC shipments totaled 75.8M units in the second quarter, a 0.1% increase from the second quarter of 2013. According to the International Data Corporation, or IDC, Worldwide Quarterly PC Tracker, Worldwide PC shipments totaled 74.4M units in the second quarter of, a year-on-year decline of -1.7%. The results reflect the smallest decline in global PC shipments since the second quarter of 2012 when declining shipments of mini notebooks combined with a surge in tablet sales to disrupt the PC market. WHAT'S NOTABLE: According to IDC, the U.S. market showed strong 6.9% year-on-year growth in the second quarter. Continuing upgrades of Windows XP systems boosted shipments in commercial portables and desktops, helping the commercial segment. At the same time, retail acceptance of emerging product categories such as Chromebooks and ultraslims helped the consumer segment to stabilize. HP continued to hold the lead and gained 2% market share while four of the top 5 vendors experienced double-digit growth for the quarter. Lenovo and Toshiba (TOSBF) took advantage of some consumer interest in Windows 8 and a push to build up their presence in large enterprises. According to Gartner, Lenovo extended its lead as the leader in worldwide PC shipments, as its worldwide market share increased to 19.2%. Lenovo’s PC shipments grew by double-digits in all regions except Asia/Pacific. Lenovo’s shipment growth in Asia/Pacific was still faster than the regional average. OTHERS TO WATCH: Apple (AAPL), down marginally.
