16:36 EDTIMIngram Micro sees Q3 revenue up year-over-year in high single-digits
Subscribe for More Information
16:34 EDTIMIngram Micro reports Q2 EPS 54c, consensus 52c
Reports Q2 revenue $10.91B, consensus $10.58B. North America and Europe revenues benefited from robust mobility distribution sales, strong sales of networking products and an uptick in demand for systems products, including PCs. Latin America revenue growth was driven by strong sales of advanced solutions in Brazil and strength in tablets in Mexico. Strong revenue growth in North America, Europe and Latin America was partially offset by declines in Asia Pacific driven primarily by lower handset sales in Indonesia and continued sales weakness in China related to lower sales of tablets and softer demand for some of the products and vendors the company carries. Gross margin and non-GAAP operating margin grew respectively by 3 and 2 basis points year-over-year, benefiting from a better overall mix of higher value business, which more than offset lower margin volume growth in consumer and retail markets in Europe and new mobility distribution wins in North America.

09:28 EDTEMCEMC spin-off of VMware unlikely at this point, says Janney Capital

16:22 EDTEMCOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the trading day in negative territory and remained there through nearly the whole session. The market action was influenced more by the geopolitical events in Russia and Israel than by the upcoming avalanche of earnings scheduled for release throughout the week. Despite the weak open and subsequent drop during the first hour of trading, the market drifted off its lows and managed to pare its losses, even turning mixed for a short time. The averages dipped again heading into the bell, though they closed well of their worst levels. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed's National Activity Index dipped to 0.12 in June from a reading of 0.16 in May. COMPANY NEWS: Allergan (AGN) rose $3.74, or 2.23%, to $171.14 after the company's Q2 results and its FY14 outlook beat expectations. The company, which is working to fend off a proposed acquisition by Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX), also announced plans to cut its workforce by 13%, or about 1,500 employees, as part of a broader restructuring effort. In related news, Valeant announced it has contacted both the SEC and Canadian financial authorities regarding Allergan's "apparent attempt to mislead investors and manipulate the market for Valeant common shares by continuing to make false and misleading statements regarding Valeant's business." Later in the day, Bill Ackman of Pershing Square, who is partnering with Valeant in its attempt to buy Allergan, called the restructuring a "Valeant light" effort and said Valeant does not need to raise its bid for Allergan. Ackman explained that he believes that shares of Valeant will rise around $10 should the Allergan board engage in takeover talks with the company and that a $10 share rise would boost Valeant's bid for Allergan by $8 per share. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Extreme Networks (EXTR), which rose 69c, or 15.79%, to $5.06 after the company raised its Q4 earnings per share outlook and narrowed its Q4 revenue view. Also higher were shares of EMC (EMC), which advanced $1.35, or 5.0%, to $28.33 after the Wall Street Journal reported, citing sources, that activist investor Elliott Management has taken a stake of over $1B in the data-storage company and plans to push it to break itself up and spin off VMware (VMW), which is 80% owned by EMC. Shares of VMware fell $2.36, or 2.48%, to $92.95 following the Journal's report. Among the other noteworthy losers was Monster Beverage (MNST), which fell $3.07, or 4.53%, to $64.74 after Morgan Stanley downgraded the stock, citing slowing U.S. trends and balanced valuation. Also lower were shares of Yum! Brands (YUM), which fell $3.29, or 4.25%, to $74.13 after Associated Press reported that the company's KFC brand and McDonald's (MCD) were sold expired beef and chicken in China from food supplier Husi Food. Shares of McDonald's, which is scheduled to report on its quarter before tomorrow's market open, slid $1.44, or 1.45%, to $97.55. INDEXES: The Dow fell 48.45, or 0.28%, to 17,051.73, the Nasdaq dropped 7.44, or 0.17%, to 4,424.70, and the S&P 500 declined 4.59, or 0.23%, to 1,973.63.

12:42 EDTAMDOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in positive territory and have remained there throughout the morning. The averages moved in a narrow range for most of the opening hour of the session but spurted to higher levels during the second hour. Investors appear to be using yesterday’s sell-off as a buying opportunity, despite the ongoing events in Russia and Israel that largely contributed to yesterday’s action. ECONOMIC EVENTS: The first release of the University of Michigan consumer sentiment index for July fell to 81.3 after ending June with an 82.5 reading. The leading economic indicator index rose 0.3% to 102.2, which was a bit below the forecast for an increase of 0.5%. COMPANY NEWS: Class A shares of Google (GOOGL) advanced over 3% after the search giant reported quarterly revenue that beat expectations last night. Following its report, at least three Wall Street research firms raised their price targets on the stock, while noted tech analyst Collin Gillis of BGC Financial upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold... Dow component General Electric (GE) reported second quarter EPS of 39c, matching the consensus forecast, and revenue that just missed the consensus view of analysts. The company also reported that it is targeting the initial public offering of IPO of Synchrony Financial (SYF), its North American Retail Finance business, for July. In the IPO, Synchrony is offering 125M shares of its common stock, which will be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “SYF,” and anticipates that the IPO price of the shares will be between $23.00 and $26.00 per share... Another Dow member, IBM (IBM), fell 0.4% after reporting adjusted Q2 earnings per share and revenue that beat expectations. Afterward, Cantor said it thinks the worst is over for the company and reiterated its Buy rating on the shares, though Societe Generale downgraded IBM to Sell from Hold and Credit Suisse said IBM continues to be driven by less revenue growth and kept its Underperform rating and $160 price target on Big Blue's stock. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Skyworks (SWKS), which gained 14% after reporting third quarter results and fourth quarter guidance above analyst estimates and seeing no less than five analyst firms raise their price targets on its stock. Also higher was Gentiva Health (GTIV), which rose 14% after it announced that its board unanimously determined to reject the partial tender offer from Kindred Healthcare (KND) to acquire 14.9% of the outstanding shares of Gentiva for a price of $16.00 per share in cash and disclosed that it has received a $17.25 per share, all-cash takeover proposal from a "recognized owner, operator and investor in the sector." After the announcement, shares of Kindred fell 2%. Also lower following their earnings reports were RealPage (RP), which fell over 21%, and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), which dropped nearly 18%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 107.05, or 0.63%, to 17,083.86, the Nasdaq was up 57.98, or 1.33%, to 4,421.43, and the S&P 500 was up 17.04, or 0.87%, to 1,975.16.
