Competition rising in China's external storage market, DigiTimes reports

IDC says competition intensified in China's external storage market in the first half of the year, reported DigiTimes, which noted that the research firm reported that sales fell by varying degree in both the low-end and high-end markets while the midrange market saw fast growth. Huawei, EMC (EMC), Hikvision, Inspur, and IBM (IBM) were the top five vendors in China's external disk storage market in Q2, according to the report. Shares of hard-disk drive maker Western Digital (WDC) is down 2.5% this morning, though it is unclear if this data is a contributing factor. Seagate (STX) is flat in early trading. Reference Link

Western Digital has more near-term upside, says Cleveland Research
Cleveland Research analyst Kevin Rottinghaus sees potential near-term upside to Western Digital's (WDC) positive preannouncement and to consensus estimates on continued strength in NAND, HDD pricing discipline, and demand upside in notebooks and near-line HDDs. His research suggests SSDs are continuing to see upside to demand and pricing in client and enterprise and expects these trends to continue through at least Q1 2017. Rottinghaus rates Western Digital a Neutral.

Following Micron's (MU) quarterly report and guidance, RBC Capital Amit Daryanani said he sees positive read-through from the report for Applied Materials (AMAT), Lam Research (LRCX), ASML (ASML), Western Digital (WDC) and Intel (INTC).

Follow-up: Seagate upgraded to Strong Buy from Buy at Needham
As previously reported, Needham upgraded Seagate to Strong Buy and raised its price target to $43 from $39. Analyst Richard Kugele said Seagate is benefiting from a generally stable to improving demand environment at the very time the company is restructuring its capacity and OPEX model for the changing environment dominated by CSPs and high-capacity drives.

Citi analyst Jim Suva resumed coverage of EMC (EMC) with a Neutral rating and $32.09 price target. The target is based on the shareholder agreed pending acquisition price of $32.09 calculated as $24.05 cash per share plus the tracking stock linked to a portion of EMC's economic interest in the VMware (VMW) business.

Intel upgraded to Buy from Hold at Evercore ISI
Evercore ISI analyst C.J. Muse upgraded Intel (INTC) to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $45 from $38. The chipmaker closed Friday up 6c to $36.08. Fears of a slowdown in its Server business and sustained weakness in PCs have led Intel shares to underperform peers thus far in 2016, Muse tells investors in a research note. The analyst expects the underperformance to change as the company's Data Center Group segment accelerates to 10%+plus growth in the second half of 2016. Further, Muse thinks Intel's "competitive moat remains" despite potential competition from ARM Holdings (ARMH) and IBM's (IBM) Power9 architecture. He sees 25% upside in Intel shares from current levels.

Speculation suggests Imperva takeover in 'near sight,' says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Shaul Eyal is not surprised to see the list of potential Imperva (IMPV) buyer candidates mentioned in an article from Bloomberg, which includes Cisco (CSCO), IBM (IBM), Fortinet (FTNT), Akamai (AKAM), and privately held Forcepoint. The analyst envisions Imperva's product line aligning particularly well with Cisco's and IBM's given the recent drive by both to expand their security offerings. Eyal sees a potential price target ranging between $55-$60 if the speculation has any merit and sufficient interest from multiple bidders. Oppenheimer has an Outperform rating on Imperva's shares.
