The IDC said PC shipments will decline by 6.2% in 2015 and will be the fourth consecutive year of falling volume, reports DigiTimes. The market almost saw stable shipments in mid-2014 as the end of support for Windows XP boosted demand, but that cycle passed and was replaced by a reduction in inventory on the supply side as the market awaits the arrival of Windows 10.

10:55 EDTYHOOAlibaba climbs after Bernstein says mobile, margin potential underappreciated
Research firm Bernstein initiated coverage of Chinese e-commerce gaint Alibaba (BABA) with an Outperform rating, saying that the Street is underestimating the company's potential to grow volumes and improve margins. WHAT'S NEW: Analysts are underestimating the gross merchandise volumes, or GMV, that Alibaba's Chinese e-commerce websites can generate, Bernstein analyst Carlos Kirjner wrote in a note to investors today. Also being underestimated is the company's ability to monetize its GMV, the analyst believes. Mobile will account for the vast majority of volume and monetization of mobile will improve to match or exceed those of PC, according to Kirjner. The Street is also not fully recognizing Alibaba's ability to increase its margins as monetization rises and its hiring slows, the analyst believes. Alibaba's stock may be volatile as the transition to mobile occurs and monetization of PC weakens, but continued GMV growth and improved mobile monetization should enable the company to beat expectations a year from now and beyond, he wrote. The analyst set a $120 price target on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Alibaba gained 2.4% to trade near $93 per share. Yahoo (YHOO), which stated yesterday that its continues to work toward completing the planned spin-off of its remaining stake in Alibaba Group in the fourth quarter of this year, is up nearly 1.5% to $43.41 this morning.
08:15 EDTMSFTSalesforce acquisition still possible, says JMP Securities
After Salesforce reported stronger than expected results, JMP Securities indicated that the results, along with statements by the company's CEO, make an acquisition seem less likely. However, the firm continues to believe that Google (GOOG), Oracle (ORCL), or Microsoft (MSFT) could buy the company. All three potential acquirers have significant cash and strong potential synergies with Salesforce, and the world is moving to the cloud, the firm explained. It raised its price target on Salesforce to $80 from $75 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

06:41 EDTYHOOCantor sees 'cloud of uncertainty' around Yahoo plans
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali believes comments yesterday from the IRS's Office of Associate Chief Counsel regarding tax treatment of certain spinoffs bring a "cloud of uncertainty" around Yahoo's (YHOO) plans to hold a tax-free spinoff of its shares in Alibaba (BABA). Isaac Zimbalist, Senior Technician Reviewer at the IRS' Office Associate Chief Counsel, said that the agency will now hold in abeyance any ruling requests received with regard to spinoffs, according to Bloomberg. Squali reiterates a Buy rating on Yahoo, however, saying shares at $41 remain compelling. His analysis of varying tax treatments of Yahoo's Alibaba spin yields a $16 per share negative impact under a worst case scenario relative to his $60 fair value estimate. Yahoo closed yesterday down $3.38 to $40.98 after Zimbalist's comments brought a late day selloff.

08:33 EDTMSFTMorgan Stanley cautious in near-term on PC names
Morgan Stanley is more cautious on PC names near-term, given PC and HDD inventory builds quarter-to-date and weaker April ODM sales. The firm's analyst team continues to believe Q1 was a bottom in year-over-year growth, but now expects normal Q2 seasonal growth instead of above normal and thinks any recovery will likely be delayed until Q3. Morgan Stanley is cautiously optimistic on Western Digital (WDC) due to its diverse revenue drivers, sees value creation catalysts for Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and believes Microsoft (MSFT) shares reflect the challenging PC market and Win 10. The firm is more cautious on semis such as NVIDIA (NVDA) given higher valuations, share loss at Advanced Micro (AMD), potential 2H margin pressure at Intel (INTC), and Morgan is cautious on PC DRAM stocks near-term due to weaker pricing.
