14:12 EDTSTXEarnings Watch: Hard drive makers report amid PC sector fears
Western Digital (WDC) and Seagate (STX) are expected to report quarterly results on July 29 and 31 with conference calls scheduled for 5:00 pm ET and 9:00 am ET, respectively. The two companies develop and manufacture computer storage solutions, including hard disk drives. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are expecting Western Digital to report earnings per share of $1.45 on revenue of $3.25B, while Seagate is expected to report earnings per share of 64c on revenue of $2.92B. During its last earnings conference call, Western noted a "cautious" near-term outlook and forecast Q4 EPS to be $1.50-$1.60 on revenue of $3.3B-$3.4B. PRELIMINARY RESULTS: On July 13, Seagate reported preliminary Q4 revenue of $2.9B, adjusted gross margins of 27%, and 45M unit shipments, driven by what the company characterized as "lower than expected intra-quarter demand." The company had previously guided Q4 revenue to $3.2B-$3.3B, and analysts were looking for $3.19B in revenue at the time. LAST QUARTER: On April 17, Seagate reported Q3 adjusted EPS of $1.08 against expectations for $1.04, and revenue of $3.3B versus estimates of $3.4B. Following that, Western Digital reported Q3 EPS of $1.87 on April 28 versus estimates of $1.89, and revenue of $3.5B against expectations for $3.6B. NEWS: On May 1, Seagate announced plans to combine its Cloud Systems and Electronic Solutions groups, and on July 14, the company said it extended its alliance with HP (HPQ). STREET RESEARCH: On May 15, RBC called Western Digital shares "compelling" due to multiple near-term positive catalysts, though Morgan Stanley said on May 19 that it was just "cautiously optimistic" on Western because of softened growth expectations for the general PC market. On May 28, Goldman Sachs called fears of PC weakness overdone and upgraded Western Digital to Buy, saying the company's increasingly enterprise-heavy mix gives it a healthy long-term profit forecast. On June 12, Longbow reported that its hard drive price checks were not quite as bad as it had feared, adding that Western Digital's guidance appears achievable while Seagate's forecast appeared at risk. Heading closer to earnings, Citi said on July 2 that it expects somewhat weak quarterly results for the two hard drive giants but recommended buying both Western Digital and Seagate shares on any perceived post-earnings weakness. Stifel somewhat echoed that point on July 8, saying investor sentiment seemed overly negative towards Western, with traders potentially underestimating the company's shift towards enterprise products. Note that on July 23, Morgan Stanley said its June CIO survey indicated incremental enterprise IT budget weakness, leading the research firm to downgrade Western Digital to Equal Weight and drop Seagate two notches to Underweight. On the M&A front, Susquehanna said on May 29 that SanDisk (SNDK) remained an attractive takeover target, with Western Digital looking like a likely buyer. However, RBC and CLSA both raised doubts on June 5 about the possibility of such a deal. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Western Digital are up 1.34% to $78.83 ahead of Wednesday's report, while Seagate is up 0.84% to $49.28.

Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says that while weakness in international cost-per-clicks drove weaker than expected Q2 results and lowered 2015 guidance, TripAdvisor's (TRIP) Instant Book continues to gain traction. The company confirmed that Hyatt (H) is now on the platform, Olson tells investors. He lowered his price target for shares to $95 from $100 and maintains an Overweight rating on the stock.

17:27 EDTTRIPTripAdvisor sees FY15 total revenue growth in 'low-to-mid 20s'
TripAdvisor said on its Q2 earnings conference call, "As it relates to guidance, based upon our view into international CPC pricing today, we are tempering our near-term outlook. We now expect 2015 total revenue growth to be in the low to mid-20s, and EBITDA growth in the low to mid-single digits. Our guidance reflects recent business trends and foreign exchange rates as of today, and does not assume future positive or negative FX movements. As such, future changes in FX and related effects on users and partners could positively or negatively impact our outlook."

06:29 EDTSTXSeagate downgraded to Underweight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley downgraded Seagate two notches to Underweight from Overweight and cut its view on the US IT Hardware Industry to Cautious from In-Line. The firm's June CIO survey indicates incremental enterprise IT budget weakness, and when combined with a downtick in cloud capex, results in a reduction in estimates and multiple compression. Morgan Stanley lowered its price target on shares to $34 from $49.

08:34 EDTTRIPTripAdvisor shares should be bought on any weakness, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer is upbeat on the 2H15 outlook for online travel, due partly to what it says are higher inventories, improving site traffic, and a solid industry backdrop. The firm says that TripAdvisor's site traffic is accelerating, while its mobile conversions appear to be improving. Consequently, the firm is more confident that the company's hotel inventory is selling well. Oppenheimer introduced a $105 price target on TripAdvisor and reiterated an Outperform rating on the name.
