18:02 EDTHPQWells sees 'shrinking list' of strategic buyers for Rackspace
Wells Fargo sees a "shrinking list" of potential buyers for Rackspace (RAX), with only remaining HP (HPQ) and CenturyLink (CTL) remaining in its opinion. Wells believes Rackspace going private through a leveraged buyout is a possibility, but it thinks such an outcome is a lower probability given the required return assumptions and implied exit multiple. The firm believes the market has correctly assumed a high probability that Rackspace will not undergo a strategic event. However, Wells thinks the potential for a value creating event limits downside in the name. It keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.

18:17 EDTHPQHP, 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.
