16:50 EDTUALUnited Continental January consolidated traffic up 0.1%
UAL's January 2016 consolidated traffic, revenue passenger miles, increased 0.1 percent and consolidated capacity, available seat miles, decreased 0.1 percent versus January 2015. UAL's January 2016 consolidated load factor increased 0.2 points compared to January 2015. The company continues to expect first-quarter 2016 consolidated passenger unit revenue to decline 6 to 8 percent compared to the first quarter of 2015, with the decline driven largely by a strong U.S. dollar, lower surcharges, travel reductions from customers impacted by declining oil prices and softening domestic and international yields.

11:33 EDTMRVLCiti 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.

ALSO HIGHER: Conatus (CNAT), up 18.8% after the FDA has granted Fast Track designation to the company's emricasan development program for the treatment of liver cirrhosis... Marvell Technology (MRVL), up 3.3% after Starboard Value disclosed a 6.7% activist stake in the company... Syngenta (SYT), up 2.9% after ChemChina offers to acquire the company in a transaction valued over $43B. DOWN AFTER EARNINGS: Navios Maritime Partners (NMM), down 33.5%...

Jeffrey Smith's Starboard Value disclosed this morning a 6.7% activist stake in Marvell Technology Group. Starboard bought the position on the belief that the shares, when purchased, were "undervalued and represented an attractive investment opportunity." The hedge fund said it retained Rick Hill, Oleg Khaykin and Jeff McCreary as advisors in connection with its investment given their "unique skill set, industry experience and industry knowledge." The Wall Street Journal last night reported Starboard would take an activist stake in chipmaker as it sees opportunity for cost cuts.

06:26 EDTUALAmerican Airlines stock price too low, WSJ says
The sharp drop in oil prices has come to the benefit of the four major U.S. airline carriers, which account for approximately 80% of the domestic air-travel market, Steven Russolillo of the Wall Street Journal's Ahead of the Tape reports. United Continental (UAL) and Southwest Airlines (LUV) already reported record Q4 earnings, and Delta (DAL) recently reported a quarterly profit as well, the report says. American Airlines (AAL) is slated to reported Q4 results, which are expected to be upbeat, the Journal says. The stock prices of such companies, however, suggests that investors aren't experiencing the full benefits due to weakness with the industry's boom-and-bust nature, the report says. American Airlines's share price, in particular, is too low, and its stock has fallen too much relative to competitors ahead of quarterly results, the report says. Reference Link
