11:27 EDTTIBX, ORCL, SPLK, VMW, EMCTIBCO sinks after weaker than expected second quarter outlook
Shares of TIBCO (TIBX), which supplies middleware and infrastructure software, are sinking after the company issued a weaker than expected outlook for the second quarter and received several analyst downgrades. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, TIBCO forecast Q2 adjusted EPS of 12c-13c and revenue of $250M-$252M, trailing expectations of 21c and $267.48M, respectively. "After a solid first quarter, revenue fell short of expectations in the second quarter, primarily due to lower-than-expected sales of Spotfire," said Vivek Ranadive, TIBCO's founder and CEO. "We again experienced growth this quarter in our core infrastructure and event processing product revenue, but Spotfire sales were less than anticipated. We have several changes under way that we believe will improve Spotfire performance. We also acquired Jaspersoft this quarter, and while not a meaningful contributor to second quarter revenue, it represents an important addition to our analytics strategy going forward," Ranadive added. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, analyst commentary was decidedly negative. Three separate firms - Mizuho, JMP Securities, and Stifel - all downgraded their ratings on TIBCO, citing its guidance. Conversely, Wells Fargo said the stock could recover within 12 months. Wells believes that the company's guidance is achievable and that the company can benefit from increasing its focus on analytics products. The firm cut its price target range on the stock to $25-$27 from $34-$36, but kept an Outperform rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, TIBCO fell $1.47, or about 7%, to $19.32 on nearly four times its average daily trading volume. Including today's pull back, the stock is down about 7.5% over the past twelve months. OTHERS TO WATCH: TIBCO competitors include Oracle (ORCL), Splunk (SPLK), VMware (VMW) and EMC (EMC).

11:04 EDTVMW, EMCEMC advances after activist letter, report on HP merger talks
Shares of EMC (EMC) are rising slightly in a down market after activist investor Elliott Management disclosed that it wrote in a letter to the company's board that it had heard of "acquisition interest in EMC's assets on the part of several large companies." The firm called on EMC to pursue M&A opportunities and spin off its VMware (VMW) subsidiary. WHAT'S NEW: Since July, several large companies have expressed "acquisition interest" in EMC's assets, Eliiott wrote. Acquisitions of EMC's assets by these companies would be logical from a strategic perspective, the firm added. The parties that have expressed interest could afford to buy all of EMC or a number of its assets, according to Elliott. EMC should look to spin off VMware because owning VMware is holding down the value of EMC's stock and damaging its relationship with its customers, the investor stated. VMware is hurting EMC by competing with EMC's customers, Elliott explained. Elliott Management noted that is affiliates collectively own or have economic exposure to about 2.2% of the common stock and equivalents of EMC. WHAT'S NOTABLE: HP (HPQ) and EMC are still conducting due diligence on a potential merger, CNBC's David Faber reported this morning, citing sources. A deal is unlikely, but still possible, and would include a buy-in of VMware, Faber added. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, EMC rose 0.3% to $28.20, VMware slid 0.9% to $90.59 and HP dropped 1.2% to $34.80.
