On The Fly: What to watch in HP Inc.'s earnings report

HP Inc. (HPQ) is scheduled to report results of its fiscal third quarter after the market close on August 23, with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. What to watch for: 1. Q EPS CONSENSUS UNCHANGED: Along with its last report, HP Inc. guided for Q3 adjusted earnings per share in the range of 40c-43c. Analysts at the time expected the company to report EPS of 42c for the quarter, and that consensus estimate remains unchanged headed into the company's earnings release. In addition, the company also said last quarter that it expects adjusted EPS for fiscal 2017 to fall in the range of $1.59-$1.66, with analysts at the time expecting $1.62. Since then, the consensus view has risen to $1.64. 2. PERSONAL SYSTEMS, PRINT REVENUE GROWTH: HP Inc. said in its second quarter report that Personal Systems net revenue and Printing net revenue were up 10% and 2% year-over-year, respectively. Commenting on the growth, HP Inc. president and chief executive officer Dion Wiesler noted that the revenue increases mark the first time both segments have grown in the same quarter since 2010. 3. PC SHIPMENTS: According to preliminary results by Gartner released in July, global personal computer shipments in the second quarter totaled 61.1M units, marking a 4.3% decline year-over-year. Gartner noted that the PC industry is in the midst of a five year slump, and this is the 11th straight quarter of declining shipments. HP Inc., however, reclaimed the top spot in PC shipments worldwide from Lenovo (LNVGY), with 20.8% market share in the quarter compared to Lenovo's 19.9%. In its last quarterly earnings report, HP Inc. reported a 5% increase in total unit shipments in Q2, with Notebook units up 12% and Desktop units down 6%. 4. LOOP SAYS BUY: Tuesday, Loop Capital analyst Ananda Baruah initiated coverage of HP Inc. with a Buy rating and $23 price target. The analyst said he expects the stock's multiple to expand and sees opportunities for the company with its new printing, copier, and 3D printing initiatives. Baruah also started coverage of HP Enterprise (HPE) with a Hold rating and $17 price target.

Overweight
Materialise price target raised to $18.50 from $12.75 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen raised his price target for Materialise (MTLS) to $18.50 saying the company's guidance is conservative, the partnership with HP Inc. (HPQ) is beginning to ramp, and its growing exposure to end part applications should provide a growth boost for the next several years. The analyst views Materialise as one of the best ways to play the 3D space. He reiterates an Overweigtht rating on the shares.

3D Systems reported disappointing results, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen says 3D Systems (DDD) last night reported disappointing results with weak printer sales being the primary factor in the revenue miss. The weak printer sales are directly correlated with increased competition from HP Inc. (HPQ), General Electric (GE) and others attacking 3D Systems' key product lines, Jensen tells investors in a post-earnings research note. He sees the company's second half of 2017 as "incrementally more challenging" and believes the stock's a "significant premium" to 3D printing peers is unwarranted. The analyst reiterates an Underweight rating on 3D Systems with a $14 price target.

Super Micro Computer servers most differentiated from peers, says Maxim
Maxim analyst Nehal Chokshi points to the fact that Super Micro Computer (SMCI) was able to pass through a larger portion of its increased memory costs to its customers than peers HP Enterprise (HPE) and Dell as evidence that Super Micro has the most differentiated servers. Super Micro will further strengthen differentiation with Intel's (INTC) Purley server platform launch, added Chokshi, who keeps a Buy rating and $43 price target on Super Micro shares.

HP Enterprise server differentiation looks weak, says Maxim
Maxim analyst Nehal Chokshi said his margin analysis suggests that HP Enterprise's server differentiation currently looks weak, given the company's below-peer ability to pass on component price increases to customers. While implementation of the Infosight telemetry analytics engine from recently acquired Nimble Storage to servers could raise margins, he remains skeptical. Chokshi keeps a Hold rating on HP Enterprise and reinstated an $18 price target on the shares.

Wells Fargo analyst Maynard Um downgraded Nimble Storage (NMBL) to Market Perform following HP Enterprise's (HPE) acquisition announcement. Nimble shares closed at $12.58, above HP's $12.50 bid, suggesting investors believe in the potential for a higher bid, Um tells investors in a research note. The analyst views Lenovo (LNVGY) as most logical bidder, but notes the company's response to media outlet CDN suggests a counterbid is unlikely. Um raised his price target range for Nimble shares to $12-$13 from $10-$11.
