08:02 EDTODP, SPLSStaples receies approval from Australia to acquire Office Depot
Staples (SPLS) announced that it has received clearance from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission for the acquisition of Office Depot (ODP). Staples continues to seek clearance from regulatory agencies in the United States, the European Union and Canada. The Commerce Commission of New Zealand and the Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China previously gave their clearance for the transaction in June. "We continue to make progress on this transaction, and we're pleased with this decision by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission," said Ron Sargent, Chairman and CEO, Staples, Inc. "We continue to work closely with regulatory agencies around the world and expect the transaction to be completed by the end of the year."
07:19 EDTHPQHP Q3 revenue could miss Street by 4%, says Citi
Citi analyst Jim Suva says weakness in PCs, and to a lesser extent printing, may led to HP reporting Q3 revenue on August 20 that misses consensus expectations by up to 4%. However, with the stock underperforming the market by more than 10% since HP reported in late May, a miss is largely priced in, Suva tells investors in a research note. He lowered his estimates for FY15 but reiterates a Buy rating on HP. The analyst continues to view the stock's risk/reward as compelling into the company's break-up.
