Pure Storage risk/reward favorable, says UBS
UBS analyst Steven Milunovich said the risk/reward for Pure Storage remains favorable following its moderate Q2 earnings beat. The analyst also noted the company's announcement of a CEO change during a strong quarter was a surprise, but a good move. He said he remains bullish as Pure Storage is about to cross over into positive free cash flow territory and should turn a profit in Q4. Milunovich reiterated his Buy rating and $15 price target on Pure Storage shares.

Cisco value seen at current levels, says Baird
Baird analyst Jayson Noland noted Cisco reported in line Q4 results and guidance was OK considering the shift to a subscription revenue model. The shift is a near-term revenue challenge but a strong long-term positive for the company. He said he continues to see value in Cisco shares at current levels. Noland reiterated his Outperform rating and $38 price target on Cisco shares.

Cisco stock likely range bound following Q4 results, says UBS
UBS analyst Steven Milunovich noted Cisco reported a slight Q4 earnings beat offset by lower margins and inline guidance. The analyst feels the stock will be range bound for now given its low cloud exposure and a transition to recurring software revenue that reduces reported revenue growth. Milunovich maintained his Buy rating and $37 price target on Cisco shares.

Blockchain and cognitive computing IBM's best recovery chance, says UBS
UBS analyst Steven Milunovich noted IBM's (IBM) legacy business remains in decline but he thinks technologies such as blockchain and cognitive computing are its best hope for recovery. The analyst sees blockchain as a differentiated growth opportunity and he believes IBM is ahead of Microsoft (MSFT), which is also looking to monetize the technology. Milunovich said IBM's earnings momentum is mediocre and he remains concerned about the company's 2018 outlook. Milunovich maintained his Neutral rating and $152 price target on IBM shares.

IBM Infrastructure Services may not recover in 2H17, says Bernstein
After IBM predicted that the revenue growth of its Infrastructure Services, or IS, business would rebound in 2H17, Bernstein analyst A.M. (Toni) Sacconaghi, Jr says this target won't be "a slam dunk" for the company. He notes that the company's overall services backlog, which he says has historically been a good proxy for IS, is down 4% year-over-year. Additionally, he is worried " about potential financial incentives IBM may have provided to IS customers to extend/re-new existing contracts early." The analyst says the company remains "in a turnaround," and he keeps a Sector Perform rating.

Morgan Stanley sees new evidence of scaling of IBM's Watson Health
After hosting a meeting with Deborah DiSanzo, General Manager of IBM Watson Health, Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty noted that the unit grew patients that used cognitive technologies by ten times in one year to 40,000 from 4,000. Additionally, the number of hospitals using Watson for Oncology and Watson for Genomics more than doubled, to 89 from 27 last year, added Huberty. The analyst, who sees IBM as uniquely positioned to address the $2T of wasted spending on health care, keeps an Overweight rating on the stock.
