07:09 EDTMCCMedley Capital downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at FBR Capital
FBR Capital analyst Christopher Nolan downgraded Medley Capital to Market Perform saying he no longer thinks the dividend is secure after asset quality deterioration accelerated in the quarter. Nolan cut his price target for the shares to $8.50 from $11 after Medley's Q1 results. Shares were also downgraded this morning at Jefferies and Citi.

13:55 EDTSHLDSears liquidity event a matter of 'when, not if,' says Evercore ISI
Evercore ISI analyst Greg Melich said the preliminary Q4 financials released by Sears showed comparable sales were worse than he expected at the flagship brand and at Kmart and that its margins were also worse than he thought. Sear's cash situation has gotten worse, making additional debt issuance more likely in 2016, Melich tells investors, adding that he believes "a liquidity event is a matter of when not if," and may be possible in 2017 at the current burn rate. The analyst keeps a Sell rating on Sears shares.

11:33 EDTISILCiti slashes PC outlook, expresses caution on related stocks
Citi significantly lowered its 2016 PC sales estimates, citing recent negative data points. In conjunction with the call, the firm lowered its estimates for three companies whose results are significantly affected by PC sales: HP Inc. (HPQ), Marvell (MRVL) and Intersil (ISIL). WHAT'S NEW: Citi analyst Jim Silva now expects PC sales to drop 6% this year, down from his previous estimate of a 2% decline. Recent data points indicate that demand for PCs has dropped significantly so far this year, while inventories are above normal, the analyst explained. Constrained budgets and macro concerns are restraining demand for PCs, Silva believes. Meanwhile, "there is not enough evidence" to conclude that the launch of Microsoft's (MSFT) Windows 10 will be a positive catalyst for PC sales this year, Silva said. Citing his view of PC trends, along with increased competition in the printer space, Silva lowered his 2016 EPS estimate for HP to $1.53 from $1.64. Statements by other printer makers, including Xerox (XRX) and Canon (CAJ), suggest that HP's margins on printers will "come under additional pressure," the analyst believes. He lowered his price target on the name to $10.75 from $14.50 and expects the stock to remain range-bound until analysts reduce their estimates further or its end markets improve. Intersil has 20% exposure to the PC market and the sales of its products related to computing are still strongly correlated with PC sales, Citi analyst Atif Malik stated. As a result, the company will face revenue headwinds throughout this year, stated the analyst. Malik, who expects the company's 2016 and 2017 EPS to come in below consensus levels, downgraded the stock to Sell from Neutral and set an $11.50 price target on the shares. Estimating Marvell's PC exposure at about 60%, Malik lowered his 2016 EPS estimate for the company to 42c from 48c and kept a Sell rating on the name. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Hedge fund Starboard Value disclosed this morning that it had bought a 6.7% activist stake in Marvell. The hedge fund said the shares are "undervalued" and The Wall Street Journal, citing sources familiar with the situation, said Starboard is betting the company can its boost margins by cutting costs, perhaps exiting its mobile device business. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, HP Inc. fell 3.3% to $9.55, Marvell rose 1.25% to $8.78 and Intersil dropped 4.4% to $11.93.
