Shareholders have misgivings about Dell offer, may oppose it, WSJ reports

Shareholders of at least 10% of Dell Technologies (DVMT), which tracks Dell's controlling stake in VMware (VMW), have misgivings with terms of a bid to buy them out and may oppose it, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing people familiar with the matter. The holders include several teams at BlackRock (BLK) as well as Farallon Capital and Canyon Capital, the report notes. Dell is offering DVMT stakeholders $109 per share in cash and stock, the report notes. Reference Link

VMware price target raised to $155 from $135 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Phil Winslow raised his price target for VMware (VMW) to $155 from $135 to account for the one-time special dividend and guidance announced in conjunction with Dell Technologies' acquisition of Class V common stock (DVMT) on July 2, 2018. The analyst reiterates a Market Perform rating on VMware's shares.

Overweight
VMware price target raised to $172 from $160 at Barclays
Barclays analyst Raimo Lenschow raised his price target for VMware to $172 saying yesterday's announcements around Dell's acquisition of Dell Technologies (DVMT) "will remove a significant overhang." Potential long-only investors were staying on the sidelines due to uncertainty around Dell's review of strategic alternatives, Lenschow tells investors in a research note. Dell's transaction implies that VMware will remain an independent entity, at least in the mid term, which should bring the "attractive fundamentals back in focus," the analyst contends. He reiterates an Overweight rating on VMware.

VMware price target raised to $175 from $155 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Keith Bachman raised his price target on VMware to $175, saying the company's announcement of a special dividend to "fund Dell" was one of the "least offensive solutions" as it removes near-term concerns about a reverse merger, even though he preferred that the capital was invested in its business. Bachman further notes that the deal will ease some of VMWare's employee attrition, but believes that Dell will still eventually buy VMWare. The analyst keeps his Outperform rating on the shares.

BlackRock removed from Analyst Focus List at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Kenneth Worthington removed BlackRock from his firm's Analyst Focus List and lowered his price target for the shares to $547 from $618. The analyst sees the macro environment as "less constructive" for BlackRock near term. Divergent beta trends have turned negative in recent months with both non-U.S. currencies and non-U.S. markets underperforming, Worthington tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, continues to believe longer term secular trends are strong for iShares and keeps an Overweight rating on BlackRock.

BlackRock upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst William Katz upgraded BlackRock to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $610 from $590. The company is "well positioned against shifting industry ecosystems, far ahead of key peers," and should sustain about 5% per annum organic growth while increasing margins, Katz tells investors in a research note. He believes BlackRock's competitive moat is widening, which should support the stock's premium valuation.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Discover (DFS) downgraded to In Line from Outperform at Evercore ISI. 2. BlackRock (BLK) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst William Katz saying the "revaluation thesis" is now well understood. 3. bluebird bio (BLUE) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Leerink with analyst Michael Schmidt saying the company's clinical stage pipeline now is fairly valued while visibility into additional near-term sources of upside is limited. 4. Jagged Peak Energy (JAG) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst Scott Hanold citing a tight frac service market in the Permian that lowers his projected growth outlook, saying the company is "more susceptible to frac service constraints due to its smaller scale and being a relatively newer entrant." 5. Varian Medical (VAR) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Isaac Ro saying shares offer poor risk/reward versus MedTech peers.
