14:56 EDTSSNLFBlackBerry off highs after Evercore said to deny prepping Samsung report
Shares of BlackBerry (BBRY) remain up 8% near $10.74 in afternoon trading, but are off their earlier session high of $11.11, after BNN's Amber Kanwar reported that Evercore (EVR) tells BNN that Samsung (SSNLF) has not been a recent client of theirs and that they prepare ideas "routinely" on their "own accord." The BNN report follows an earlier story from Canada's Financial Post that claimed that Evercore Partners produced a 40 page analysis of the advantages and disadvantages to Samsung of acquiring all or part of BlackBerry on behalf of the Korean smartphone maker.

10:42 EDTSSNLFBlackBerry jumps after report says Samsung analyzed takeover
An investment bank hired by Samsung prepared a detailed analysis of a potential acquisition of all or part of BlackBerry (BBRY) by the South Korean company, The Financial Post reported. WHAT'S NEW: In the fourth quarter of last year, Evercore Partners produced a 40 page analysis of the advantages and disadvantages to Samsung of acquiring all or part of BlackBerry, according to The Financial Post. The document also laid out various strategies that Samsung could use to make such a deal, and obstacles that could prevent the deal from occurring, the newspaper stated. Acquiring a minority stake would have many advantages for Samsung, the newspaper quotes the document as saying. However, it questions whether Samsung could achieve its key objectives if it only holds a minority stake in BlackBerry. The Canadian company's software appears to be complementary to that of Samsung, but further analysis must be conducted on that issue, Evercore stated, according to The Financial Post. The document suggested that Evercore could ask Fairfax Financial (FRFHF), a major BlackBerry shareholder, to help facilitate a deal. WHAT'S NOTABLE: After attending meetings with BlackBerry CFO James Yersh, Wells Fargo estimated that BlackBerry's QNX subsidiary, which develops software for automobiles, is already generating about 40% of the $500M of total annual software revenue that BlackBerry has targeted. Many analysts have questioned whether BlackBerry could meet this target. The firm also stated that BlackBerry will unveil "an iconic device" in early March. However, Yersh acknowledged that Q4 would be a transition quarter, while many investors remain cautious about BlackBerry, Wells stated. The firm has a neutral rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, BlackBerry surged 8.5% to $10.80.

Samsung (SSNLF) continues to pursue acquisition of BlackBerry (BBRY), reports the Financial Post, citing an investment bank document and a source with knowledge of the plan. Prepared by Evercore Partners in 4Q14, the document hints at only a partial takeover, notes that Lenovo (LNVGY) may compete with Samsung for the company, cites BlackBerry's operating system and Messenger as potential divestitures, adds that Samsung could offset $50M in taxable income, and suggests Samsung start by approaching Fairfax Financial about acquiring a minority stake.

07:59 EDTAAPLSanDisk growth story remains intact, says Citigroup
Citigroup attributes the 7% post-earnings drop in shares of SanDisk (SNDK) to the company unexpectedly announcing that Apple (AAPL) was dropping SanDisk as a supplier of client SSDs. The firm estimates that the Apple SSD business is roughly 8%-10% of SanDisk's revenue. Citi says it was relieved, however, when management attributed the Q4 miss to product shortage, implying NAND industry excess inventory is not an issue. It believes the company's secular growth story remains intact, and keeps a Buy rating on the name despite lowering its price target to $97 from $110.
