08:17 EDTVMW, EMCEMC risk/reward favorable, says Bernstein
Bernstein notes that EMC's stock is trading at an approximately 24% discount to the valuation at which it agreed to be acquired by Dell and Silver Lake. The firm blames the discrepancy on the decline in VMware's stock since the deal was announced and concerns about the VMware tracking stock. Bernstein blames the decline in VMware's stock on concerns about its corporate governance following the deal and its weak revenue guidance issued last month. Nonetheless, Bernstein thinks the EMC deal will probably close and sees the risk/reward ratio of the stock as positive. It keeps a $30 price target and Outperform rating on the shares.

08:03 EDTYHOOStarboard urges Yahoo to sell core businesses
In a letter delivered to Yahoo's Chairman, CEO And board, Starboard stresses that a proposed spin-off of Aabaco Holdings is not Yahoo's best alternative. It adds that a sales of Yahoo's core business would be the best risk-adjusted outcome for shareholders. In the letter, Starboard stated, "We have grown increasingly frustrated with your unwillingness to accept our help and your dismissive approach to our serious concerns about the current situation at Yahoo! Inc. ("Yahoo"). As you, the management team, and your advisors requested from us over a year ago, we have attempted to work with you privately and agreed not to pursue the nomination and election of directors at last year's annual meeting. Despite our numerous conversations and meetings, and notwithstanding your willingness to provide us an audience, you have been reluctant to respond or adapt to the realities of the current environment. The current situation that Yahoo faces is so important that we now feel it is necessary to communicate with management and the Board of Directors in a manner such that our message is not only as explicit as possible for you, but also for our fellow Yahoo shareholders. The proposed spin-off of Aabaco Holdings is not Yahoo's best alternative. Instead, you should be exploring a sale of Yahoo's core Search and Display advertising businesses and leave Yahoo's ownership stakes in Alibaba Group and Yahoo Japan in the existing corporate entity."

11:10 EDTWDCMicron the most likely target for Tsinghua stake, says Macquarie
Macquarie analyst Deepon Nag highlighted yesterday that Tsinghua Unigroup Chairman Zhao Weiguo told Reuters in an interview that his company was in talks with a U.S. semiconductor company, and that a deal could be announced as early as the end of the month. Zhao stated that a majority stake was unlikely due to regulatory concerns. Given recent moves by China in the memory market, Micron (MU) is the most likely target for Tsinghua, Nag wrote in a note to investors. Tsinghua recently announced a 15% stake in Western Digital (WDC) at a 33% premium to the company's prior closing price. A similar premium for Micron would lead to a 15% stake in Micron for $20 per share, which would equal $3.4B, the analyst points out. Shares of Micron are up 46c, or 3%, to $15.35 in late morning trading. Nag has an Outperform rating on Micron with a $30 price target.
