10:02 EDTEMCHP 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.

12:58 EDTMUOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday, with Nike's (NKE) post-earnings rise providing a boost to the Dow and Micron's (MU) slide dragging on the tech-heavy Nasdaq. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the University of Michigan consumer sentiment reading rebounded to 96.1 in the final June report from the preliminary 94.6 reading. That revised figure topped the expected reading of 95. In Europe, the ECB left the level of emergency cash available to Greek banks unchanged again Friday as deposit outflows have slowed, according to people familiar with the matter reporting to Bloomberg. Greek leaders are scheduled to hold talks Saturday with the Eurogroup in what may be the nation's last chance for a deal ahead of the expiration of the current bailout agreement on June 30. In China, stocks plunged by the most in five months as the Shanghai Composite Index fell 7.4%, with market watchers citing margin worries and concerns that the PBOC will be less likely to undertake further rate cuts. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Nike advanced 4% after the athletic apparel and sneaker maker reported fourth quarter results that handily beat expectations. Several firms raised their respective price targets on the stock following the company's Q4 report, including Goldman, which reiterated its Conviction Buy rating on Nike and raised its price target to $131 from $121. Finish Line (FINL), an athletic shoe and apparel retailer that sells Nike products, rose 5% after its own first quarter results also topped the consensus forecast. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was OPKO Health (OPK), which rose nearly 4% after the company announced the decision of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network to include 4Kscore as a recommended test in the 2015 NCCN Guidelines for Prostate Cancer Early Detection. Additionally, CEO Phillip Frost disclosed in regulatory filings that he'd acquired over 64,000 shares of the company stock in the last two days. Also higher was Kforce (KFRC), which gained 7% after SunTrust upgraded the stock to Buy and raised its price target to $27 from $24, noting that the firm's private IT staffing poll suggests margin assumptions may prove conservative. Among the noteworthy losers was Micron, which sunk about 19% after the flash memory maker reported weaker than expected results last night and provided lower than expected Q4 revenue guidance. Also lower were shares of coal miner Peabody (BTU), which fell 7% after Moody's downgraded the company's credit rating to reflect the firm's expectation for the deterioration in the company's credit metrics to be more precipitous than it had previously thought due to the ongoing decline in the seaborne metallurgical coal markets. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 53.70, or 0.3%, to 17,944.06, the Nasdaq was down 40.56, or 0.79%, to 5,071.62, and the S&P 500 was down 2.18, or 0.1%, to 2,100.13.

After Micron reported weaker than expected results, Stifel blamed the company's difficulties on a greater than expected shift away from PCs. However, the firm thinks the company's strategy of increasing its exposure to other markets is correct, and it believes that DRAM supply can align with end market demand during the current quarter. Stifel cut its price target on the name to $34 from $41 but keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

17:56 EDTAMD, MUMicron plunges after Q3 results, guidance impacted by PC headwinds
Shares of PC related memory chip maker Micron Technology (MU) are plunging after reporting third quarter financial results and fourth quarter guidance that missed analyst expectations. WHAT'S NEW: After the close, Micron reported Q3 earnings per share of 54c on revenue of $3.85B, both shy of analyst estimates of 56c and $3.9B, respectively. Citing "near-term headwinds driven primarily by weakness in PC sector," Micron gave a fourth quarter revenue view of $3.45B-$3.7B which was significantly lower than analyst expectations of $4.16B. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On the company's earnings conference call, Micron said, consistent with prior expectations, "We are forecasting DRAM industry supply bit growth in the mid-20s in calendar 2015 and in the low-to-mid 20s in 2016." The company said it sees DRAM gross margins for Q4 down mid-single digits sequentially. Additionally, the chip maker said it sees Q4 DRAM bit growth flat to up low single digits. ANALYST TAKE: On June 22, Micron was downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs. Goldman analyst Mark Delaney downgraded Micron Technology to Sell saying rising DRAM supply will lower selling prices and contract margins. Delaney expects DRAM prices to drop up to 30% over the next three quarters and cut his price target for shares to $19 from $27. On the same day, JP Morgan lowered its price target on Micron shares to $33 from $37. The firm also lowered its estimates for Micron citing lower than anticipated DRAM pricing in the past three months. The firm, however, kept an Overweight rating on Micron, saying improving demand in other segments like mobile and the company's decision to not hold inventory during Q3 should help offset the DRAM weakness. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Micron are lower by 11.5% in after- hours trading to $21.25. OTHER PC RELATED STOCKS: In after-hours trading, PC related chip makers are also lower, with Intel Corporation (INTC) down 0.9%, NVIDIA (NVDA) lower by 1.1%, and AMD (AMD) down fractionally. Others trading lower include Microsoft (MSFT), SanDisk (SNDK), Hewlett-Packard (HPQ), and Seagate (STX).

12:54 EDTMUEarnings Watch: Micron reports after multiple analysts recommend selling shares
Micron Technology (MU) is expected to report third quarter earnings after the close on Thursday, June 25, with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm EDT. Micron manufactures semiconductor devices, principally Dynamic Random Access Memory, or DRAM, NAND Flash and NOR Flash memory. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 56c on revenue of $3.9B. The consensus range is 49c-65c for EPS on revenue of $3.73B-$4.03B, according to First Call. On its last earnings conference call, Micron guided for Q3 revenue of $3.85B-$4.05B. In terms of bit growth in Q3, the company said previously that it sees total DRAM up high single digits and Trade NAND down low single digits. In Q3 for ASP, the company forecast total DRAM down high single digits and Trade NAND up mid single digits. LAST QUARTER: On April 1, Micron reported Q2 adjusted EPS of 81c, against a consensus of 73c, on revenue of $4.17B, against a consensus of $4.15B. The company said then that it was allocating less production to its PC segment and shifting to faster growing areas, but also said it foresaw PC DRAM demand to improve in the second half of 2015. PEER: On April 15, SanDisk (SNDK) lowered it FY15 revenue view to $5.4B-$5.7B from $6.5B-$6.8B. At that time, SanDisk CEO Sanjay Mehrotra said the company was "disappointed" with its financial and operational performance and was taking "aggressive measures" to regain the type of execution it has delivered in the past, adding that its top priorities for 2015 are to strengthen its product roadmap and rebuild its momentum. NEWS: On May 5, Micron appointed Ernie Maddock as CFO and vice president, Finance, effective June 1. Maddock joined Micron after having served as EVP and CFO at Riverbed Technology (RVBD). STREET RESEARCH: On June 9, Piper Jaffray analyst Ruben Roy wrote that after conducting checks in Taiwan he expects the prices of PC DRAM to continue to decline. However, mobile and server DRAM pricing remains stable, as demand for those products is rising, the analyst stated. Roy lowered his estimates for Micron and trimmed his price target on the shares to $34 from $35 but kept an Overweight rating on the name. The same day, research firm Drexel Hamilton cut its rating on Micron to Sell from Hold, citing its belief that DRAM price declines are likely to continue. Samsung appears to be willing to accept lower memory prices and mobile DRAM prices are weakening, while PC DRAM prices have remained weak, the firm stated. As a result, Drexel lowered its margins and earnings estimates for Micron and slashed its price target on the stock to $20 from $30. Less than a week later, Morgan Stanley analyst Joseph Moore downgraded Micron to Underweight, the firm's equivalent of a "Sell" rating. Moore said that his checks in Taiwan indicate that the outlook for DRAM is "cautious versus expectations" for the third quarter. Previously, the analyst had expected DRAM to experience a seasonal boost in Q3, but he now expects this lift to be delayed until at least Q4. Moreover, DRAM prices will probably stay weak through Q3 as customers' inventories of DRAM are excessive, while sales of PC DRAM will probably remain weak in Q3 and could stay low in Q4, the analyst stated. Micron could have difficulty improving its earnings in 2016 from current levels, warned the analyst, who set a $21 price target on the shares. The same day, Moore downgraded peer SanDisk to Equal Weight from Overweight and lowered his price target on those shares to $75 from $80. On June 19, Topeka upgraded Micron to Buy from Hold and increased its price target to $34 from $30. The firm came away from an investor site visit incrementally more confident regarding PC demand and related DRAM pricing. Topeka added that it expects investor confidence in Micron's ability to sustain margins though cycles to increase over the next few quarters as Micron executes. Earlier this week, Goldman Sachs analyst Mark Delaney downgraded Micron to Sell from Neutral, saying rising DRAM supply will lower selling prices and contract margins. Delaney expects DRAM prices to drop up to 30% over the next three quarters and cut his price target for Micron shares to $19 from $27. PRICE ACTION: Over the last three months, shares of Micron have fallen over 9%. Ahead of its earnings report, Micron fell fractionally to trade near $24 per share at midday.

11:54 EDTMUMicron technical comments ahead of earnings
The chart is bearish in every time frame. The topping process has been in place since the stock fell from highs late last year. If the news continues to be bearish, notably where outlook is concerned, there could be additional price weakness. Support levels to watch below the current price of $24.11 are at $23.50, $21.92, $20.97, and $20.19. If the news is a bullish surprise, the first important resistance level to watch is at $26.95, the 50-day moving average. This moving average is a proxy for a hand-drawn downtrend resistance line, and a breakout above it would turn the short-term trend to bullish. Next resistance levels to watch would be at $28.11 and $29.09. Approximately 6.5% of the large trading float is short, which could add significant buy-to-cover demand at week's end on a positive surprise.
