15:42 EDTBCOV, RAX, ARUN, VMWCloud computing stocks lower after Rackspace Q4 results disappoint
A number of names associated with the cloud computing space are trading lower after Rackspace (RAX) reported Q4 results that missed analyst expectations last night. Rackspace, an open cloud company that offers enterprise-level hosting services to businesses, reported Q4 EPS of 21c against analyst estimates of 22c, on revenue of $352.9M against analyst estimates of $355.42M. Although revenue rose 25% in Q4 year over year, the rate of growth is seen as decelerating for the company. Stifel Nicolaus downgraded the company this morning to Hold from Buy, citing the slowdown in growth. In late day trading, Rackspace is down over 20% to $59.87. Other cloud computing names trading lower today include Brightcove (BCOV), down 1.6% to $6.74; Aruba Networks (ARUN), down 4.7% to $21.16; and VMware (VMW), down 3.08% to $74.35.

05:57 EDTVMWVMware, Carahsoft pay $75.5M to settle claims of overcharging government
VMware and Carahsoft Technology Corporation yesterday agreed to pay $75.5M to resolve allegations that they violated the False Claims Act by misrepresenting their commercial pricing practices and overcharging the government on VMware software products and related services, the Department of Justice announced. VMware is a Delaware corporation that specializes in computer virtualization software and has its principal place of business in Palo Alto, California. Carahsoft is a privately held Maryland corporation that distributes information technology products to federal, state and local governments and has its principal place of business in Reston, Virginia. The settlement resolves allegations that VMware and Carahsoft made false statements to the government in connection with the sale of VMware products and services under Carahsoft’s MAS contract. These false statements allegedly concealed the companies’ commercial pricing practices and enabled the companies to overcharge the government for VMware’s products and services from 2007 through 2013. The civil settlement resolves a lawsuit filed under the whistleblower provision of the False Claims Act, which permits private parties to file suit on behalf of the United States for false claims and obtain a portion of the government’s recovery. The civil lawsuit was filed in the Eastern District of Virginia by Dane Smith, who is a former vice president of the Americas at VMware Inc. Smith’s share of the recovery has not been determined.

10:02 EDTVMWHP 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.
