10:20 EDTRKUSRuckus Wireless will be in play if HP acquires Aruba, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum said Ruckus Wireless (RKUS) remains a likely takeout target following reports Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) may acquire competitor Aruba Networks (ARUN). Analyst Tony Stoss said if Hewlett is looking at Aruba, it should absolutely look at Buy rated Ruckus, which would also pressure Cisco (CSCO) to take a hard look at the company.

16:38 EDTRKUSOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
The Wall Street averages had a relatively quiet open and remained in a tight range for most of the session.

There was little momentum behind the move and the averages eventually faded, closing nearly unchanged for the session.

COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) dropped $3.82, or 9.92%, to $34.67 after the PC, printer and server maker reported lower than expected Q1 revenue and cut its FY15 EPS view and free cash flow outlook, citing separation costs and foreign exchange headwinds. However, analysts at Citigroup, Bernstein, and Brean Capital all recommended buying the stock on weakness in separate notes to investors today.
