10:17 EDTEMC, OVRL, NMBL, NTAPNimble Storage climbs following two upgrades
Shares of data storage provider Nimble Storage (NMBL) are rallying after two research firms upgraded the stock in notes to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: Nimble can offer its systems to more companies as it unveils new products, William Blair analyst Jason Ader wrote in a note to investors earlier today. The new products should also enable it to increase its market share, added the analyst, who also cited the stock's recent pullback as a reason for his upgrade. Ader is impressed with the company's revenue growth outlook, management team, technology, and profit margins and expects Nimble's results to surpass analysts' expectations. He raised his rating on the shares to Outperform from Market Perform. Also upgrading Nimble was Needham analyst Richard Kugele. Nimble can grow 50% or more for the next several years, wrote Kugele, who predicted that companies with high growth rates and high valuations will attract investors once again after the market's profit taking and nervousness are exhausted. He upgraded his rating on the shares to Strong Buy from Buy, but cut his price target on the shares to $35 from $62. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other data storage providers include NetApp (NTAP), EMC (EMC), and Overland Storage (OVRL). PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Nimble jumped $2.74, or 13.3%, to $23.33.

10:02 EDTEMCHP 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.
