Carl Icahn says to vote against Dell's proposed merger with Dell Technologies

Carl Icahn released an open letter to stockholders of Dell Technologies Inc.'s DVMT Tracking Stock, which says in part: "A few months ago, several large holders of Dell Technologies Inc.'s tracking stock contacted me to express their concerns regarding, and their opposition to, Michael Dell's and Silver Lake's machinations and activities related to the Tracker, as well as stressing that the Tracker was, and is, deeply undervalued. (Five years ago, I vehemently fought Michael Dell who many stockholders believed was severely underpaying for the company in a going-private transaction). After researching the current situation, I quickly realized that while we have unearthed many undervalued opportunities in the past, very few companies compare to the current opportunity and the massive undervaluation of DVMT - which exists in plain sight for all to see. The Dell Tracker currently sells for approximately $92 per share but is worth on a pure mathematical basis approximately $144 per share. In my opinion, this massive distortion exists because (i) as a result of the 2013 going-private transaction, we believe the market does not trust Michael Dell or Silver Lake; (ii) the Tracker has basically zero governance rights and is trapped within a capital structure that has some of the worst corporate governance in America (at Dell, the Certificate of Incorporation even requires that the CEO has to agree to replace the CEO!), however, investor fear of this poor governance is overdone and we believe strong activism combined with litigation, if necessary, can mitigate the governance risks; and (iii) for the better part of the past year, Dell and Silver Lake worked to destroy the value of the Tracker by (1) raising the possibility of a Dell IPO, (2) floating the idea of a merger with VMware and (3) threatening a forced conversion of the Tracker into Dell common stock, among other tactics. These scare tactics are reminiscent of the tactics Machiavelli advised the Borgia rulers to use centuries ago... In conclusion, I firmly believe Dell and Silver Lake are trying to capture $11 billion of value that rightly belongs to us, the DVMT stockholders. As such, I intend to do everything in my power to STOP this proposed DVMT merger. In my opinion, it is better to have peace than war, but be assured, I still enjoy a good fight for the right reasons, and in the current situation, I do not see peace arriving quickly! Stay tuned!"

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.

Newell Brands agreement with Icahn lends credibility to management plan, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog says Newell Brands (NWL) agreement with Carl Icahn, Chairman of Icahn Enterprises (IEP), lends credibility to the management's plan, and likely increases the odds that the former will ultimately prevail in its proxy battle with Starboard. That said, the analyst believes that ongoing fundamental headwinds, the stepped-up divestiture program and organizational disruption likely leaves an overhang on the shares, despite a cheap valuation. Herzog reiterates a Market Perform rating and $25 price target on Newell's shares.

Newell Brands agreement with Icahn a win for CEO Polk, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Kevin Grundy noted that Newell Brands reached an agreement with activist investor Carl Icahn to appoint five directors nominated by Icahn to the company's board, a board which totals eleven directors. In exchange, Icahn agreed to vote all his shares -- he disclosed a 6.9% stake in Newell -- in favor of Newell's nominees. The firm believes that while this news may come as a surprise, it will lead to the shares trading up, and called it a "big win" for CEO Michael Polk, despite the five seats given up being "a hefty price." Jefferies maintained a Hold rating and $29 price target on Newell shares.
