08:57 EDTRAX, HP, IBM, CTL, CSCO, EMCRackspace may be putting pressure on potential buyers, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo finds it possible that Rackspace (RAX) could be considering a move to go private as reported this morning by TechCrunch, but it finds it more likely that the company is trying to put pressure on potential buyers. Wells notes that TechCrunch sources stated Rackspace received bids from HP (HP) and IBM (IBM), and that the article also listed CenturyLink (CTL), Cisco (CSCO), Dell and EMC (EMC) as other potential bidders. The firm says a going private transaction is possible for Rackspace given the strength of its balance sheet. Wells has an Outperform rating on the stock.

18:02 EDTRAX, CTLWells 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.
