11:27 EDTSPLK, EMC, ORCL, VMW, TIBXTIBCO 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).

11:50 EDTEMC, VMWEMC-VMware report shows board knows status quo 'not an option,' says Wells Fargo
After Re/code's Arik Hesseldahl reported that EMC's (EMC) board is "actively considering" a downstream merger proposal under which it would be acquired by VMware (VMW), Wells Fargo analyst Maynard Um said he views the most important takeaway to be that the board views maintaining the status quo as "not an option" amid the rapid shift in the industry. Um thinks an EMC buy-in of VMware, which the report contends is the preferred option of EMC CEO Joe Tucci, presents a cleaner path with less variables but says that in either case it "seems clear that something will happen," which he views as a positive.

09:19 EDTSPLKSplunk downgraded to Hold at Summit Research on expected tech correction
As previously reported, Summit Research analyst Srini Nandury downgraded Splunk to Hold from Buy. Nandury noted that the downgrade is not a call on the company's Q2 results, as he believes Splunk's momentum "continues unabated" and that its fundamentals are intact. However, the analyst tells investors this morning that he thinks tech stocks "are in for a major correction" and that "high flyers" like Splunk will see their multiples compress more than other tech names. Nandury cut his price target on Splunk shares to $50 from $84, stating that to remain at current levels, Splunk has to not only beat estimates "handily" but also must guide up "significantly."
