Gartner: Global PC shipments fell 5.7% in Q3 to 68.9M units

Worldwide PC shipments totaled 68.9M units in the third quarter of 2016, a 5.7% decline from the third quarter of 2015, according to preliminary results by Gartner (IT). "There are two fundamental issues that have impacted PC market results: the extension of the lifetime of the PC caused by the excess of consumer devices, and weak PC consumer demand in emerging markets," said Mikako Kitagawa, principal analyst at Gartner. "According to our 2016 personal technology survey, the majority of consumers own, and use, at least three different types of devices in mature markets. Among these devices, the PC is not a high priority device for the majority of consumers, so they do not feel the need to upgrade their PCs as often as they used to. Some may never decide to upgrade to a PC again." The PC market continues to consolidate, as the top six vendors combined for a record high 78% of PC shipments in the third quarter of 2016. Lenovo (LNVGY) continued to be the worldwide market leader based on preliminary PC shipments, but HP Inc. (HPQ) is nearly tied for this top spot, and these rankings could change when final shipment results are published. Lenovo has recorded six consecutive quarters of year-over-year shipment declines, while the nearest competitors, HP Inc. and Dell (EMC), have recorded shipment growth since the second quarter of 2016. Other vendors include Asus, Apple (AAPL), and Acer.

Citi lowers 2016 PC estimates to down 6% from down 2%
Citi analyst Jim Suva says recent data points indicate above normal PC inventories and "materially below seasonal demand" in early 2016. The analyst cut his 2016 PC estimates to down 6% from down 2%, well below IDC's estimate of down 3%. Suva believes there is a lack of evidence to suggest that Microsoft's (MSFT) Windows' 10 launch will drive a PC refresh in 2016. The analyst cut his estimates and price target for HP Inc. (HPQ) and kept a Neutral rating on the name.

HP gaining high-end PC share, positioning for future ink sales, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst James Kisner noted that HP Inc. is gaining share in PCs at the high-end of the market and taking advantage of the weak Yen to place high value Printing units to drive future ink sales, both of which are trends that he likes. Kisner thinks HP shares will rise as the company delivers on its free cash flow targets and investors gain confidence in the improved trajectory of PCs and Supplies. The analyst increased his price target on HP to $16.75 from $16.00 and keeps a Buy rating on the name.

Apple has positive read through from Dialog results, says RBC Capital
After Dialog issued a positive preannouncement due to higher than expected Mobile Services revenue, RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani thinks that the Dialog results should comfort Apple investors heading into that company's September quarter results. The analyst notes that Apple accounts for 75%-80% of Dialog's revenue. He keeps a $125 price target and Outperform rating on Apple.

Apple average selling prices could beat expectations, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani says that his analysis indicates that the average selling prices of Apple's iPhone 7 could significantly exceed Street expectations. Stronger demand for the "plus" model versus the last two years, along with the fact that Apple is charging a $120 premium for the "plus" model versus a $100 premium historically, should boost average selling prices, the analyst stated. He thinks that Apple's September quarter revenue could beat expectations by a "modest" amount, while the company's December quarter guidance could be "materially ahead of Street expectations." He keeps a $125 price target and Outperform rating on the stock.

Deutsche sees Netflix takeover as unlikely, starts shares at Sell
Deutsche Bank analyst Bryan Kraft initiated shares of Netflix (NFLX) with a Sell rating and $90 price target. The stock closed Friday down 25c to $104.82. The risk/reward is unattractive as consensus expectations reflect an "optimistic case," Kraft tells investors in a research note. Market expectations appear too high through 2020, the analyst contends. He also expresses skepticism that Netflix will be acquired. The business is "too fully formed" and valued to be acquired by Disney (DIS) and Apple (AAPL), Kraft writes. He also sees Amazon.com (AMZN) as a competitive risk to Netflix.

Apple could gain 8M iPhone units from Note 7 troubles, says Drexel Hamilton
Drexel Hamilton analyst Brian White estimates Apple (AAPL) has an opportunity to pick up "at least" 8 million incremental iPhone units in calendar year 2016 due to the Galaxy Note 7 being scrapped, noting that original market expectations were for Samsung (SSNLF) to ship about 10M-14M Galaxy Note 7 units in the second half of this year. The "fiasco" could permanently damage Samsung's smartphone brand, resulting in Apple market share gains, White added. The analyst keeps a Buy rating and $185 price target on Apple shares.
