James F. Hillier For Fujitsu, he expects the recovery to lag given exposure to Japan IT services, and Analyst downgrades to Neutral. In the US, Jason Kupferberg upgrades DOX to Buy on accelerating F12 EPS growth, favorable mix, & attractive valuation. +1-212-713 3415 PCs: weaker 4Q growth / Microsoft: lower est’s / Asia hardware update IDC/Gartner reported 4Q PC units +3% y/y, below UBSe +5.7% y/y est. given US consumer weakness & softer APAC demand. Our hardware team expects 9% PC unit growth in 2011, down from 14% in 2010. For MSFT, Brent Thill lowers F2Q sales $200M & EPS $0.01 to reflect PC weakness but maintains a Buy. In Asia, despite reports Quanta raised prices to HP, Arthur Hsieh prefers Wistron & Catcher given superior margins; he also remains positive on HTC and TPK. Apple: raise estimates and target to $415 and reiterate Buy Maynard Um raises F1Q rev/EPS to $24.5B/$5.40 (vs. $24.2B/$5.31 cons.) on likely strong holiday sales and raises F11E on embed higher iPhone and iPad units. VMware: expect 4Q beat; retain Buy / Nuance: raise target; maintain Buy Brent Thill’s survey of 50 VMW resellers suggests a 4Q beat w/ strength in server shipments, cloud solutions, & add-on mgmt tools. On NUAN, Brent est’s F1Q inline with cons. but sees improving q/q trends from accelerating speech adoption.

  • 2. Global Tech Daily 13 January 2011UBS Research Highlights Industrial Electronics Sector Update Technology Analyst: Kenji Yasui Tel: +81-3-5208 6211 Q3 preview & 2011 investment outlook: recommend Toshiba, Mitsubishi Electric Biz climate to improve in 2011; good sector position needed for OP growth The semiconductor cycle, which indicates ‘tech’ demand, looks to have bottomed in CYQ3-CYQ4, and 2011 could see the business climate improve alongside a move from a bottom to a peak. Such an improvement should apply to all firms, but gaps in the extent of OP growth may appear depending on sector positioning, so we would select stocks where core units have strong sector positions. In industrial electronics, we recommend Toshiba and Mitsubishi Electric. Toshiba: NAND/nuclear; Mitsubishi Elec.: high share in ind. mechatronics Toshiba (estimated Q3 FY10 in-house OP budget ¥35bn~¥40bn; we expect ¥38bn) is one of two dominant firms in NAND and of three such firms in nuclear power. Sector positioning in global markets is high. Mitsubishi Electric (¥40bn; ¥50bn) revised up OP, especially for industrial mechatronics, in Q1 and Q2 and sustained strong earnings capabilities should support a stable high sector positioning. Fujitsu: recovery lags, esp. at home; Hitachi: establishing core ops an issue At Fujitsu (estimated Q3 FY10 in-house OP budget, ¥10bn; we expect ¥24bn), there is no sign of recovery in the domestic SI market, OP from services may miss the company’s FY10 plan and FY11 OP guidance of ¥250bn may be revised down. At Hitachi (¥70bn; ¥80bn), restructuring through H1 may see profit rise yoy, but a sense of a lull could emerge. Elpida, Renesas Elec.: Competitiveness an issue; Jan-Mar profit to fall qoq At Elpida (estimated Oct-Dec OP, -¥20bn), Jan-Mar may see a qoq fall of 20% on sharply lower PC-DRAM price. At Renesas (¥6bn), R&D costs from acquiring Nokia’s modem unit may exceed ¥10bn from Jan-Mar. Source: The content presented above reflects a front page summary of UBS Research content, UBS commentary as at 12 January 2011 Mitsubishi Electric Rating: Buy Target: ¥1,050 Price: ¥907 RIC: 6503.T Prior: Neutral Prior: ¥830 Mkt Cap: ¥1,948bn BBG: 6503 JP Communications Technology Analyst: Kenji Yasui Tel: +81-3-5208 6211 Business climate to improve in line with the inventory cycle; upgrade to Buy Demand is currently flat, but the future climate should accelerate demand We expect a consistent improvement in the business climate, and a strong position within the sector is essential to generate profit. Mgmt lifted its initial FY10 OP guidance of ¥140bn to ¥160bn at the Q1 results stage, then to ¥205bn at Q2 results. For industrial mechatronics its target rose from ¥49bn to ¥67bn and then to ¥93bn (+¥44bn), and thus this segment is driving OP. We believe the company is maintaining high profitability and a strong sector position. We estimate that Oct-Dec industrial mechatronics orders were about flat qoq, and we see no signs of recovery, but we expect demand to accelerate alongside the inventory cycle. We expect record profit for FY11-FY12 (exceeding ¥267.2bn in FY07) We forecast FY10 OP at ¥230bn, and we believe industrial mechatronics are very likely to overshoot target. In FY11, air conditioner OP will probably turn down yoy, but orders for heavy machinery should hit bottom in H1 FY10. Industrial mechatronics should be able to achieve growth in both sales and profit due to demand expansion, mainly overseas. Risk factors are the Chinese economy and a slowdown in LCD-related capex. Inventory cycle to bottom in CQ3-4 as assumed; climate to start improving As global capex, industrial production index and semiconductor shipments are highly correlative (Charts 4-7), we anticipate a synchronous recovery in the semi inventory cycle (Chart 1) and the global capex market. Valuation: Upgrading our rating from Neutral to Buy Expecting an improvement in the business climate, we lift our PER target from 15X, the market average, to 18X (FY11E), and hence our PT from ¥830 to ¥1,050 Source: The content presented above reflects a front page summary of UBS Research content, UBS estimates based on a share price of ¥907 on 12 Jan 2011 17:24 JST Fujitsu Rating: Neutral Target: ¥600 Price: ¥551 RIC: 6702.T Prior: Buy Prior: ¥800 Mkt Cap: ¥1,141bn BBG: 6702 JP Computers Analyst: Kenji Yasui Tel: +81-3-5208 6211 Time to factor in a FY10-11 earnings shortfall; downgrade to Neutral Q3 target should be beaten, but is low: FY10 OP from services to fall short We estimate that Fujitsu’s Q3 OP plan is ¥10bn, but mgmt’s targets for hardware, ubiquitous and eliminations are probably conservative. We expect OP to beat target, at ¥24bn. Services look in line. For domestic sales from services, mgmt forecasts a recovery to +5% yoy for Jan-Mar, from -1~-2% in Oct-Dec, but a pick-up in the domestic capex market is likely to lag the global trend by 6-9 months. We do not expect a recovery in FY10, and we think FY OP guidance will be missed. FY10 OP shortfall not priced in yet; risk to be recognised after Q3 results Q4 OP accounts for about half of full-term profit in the service segment. It is difficult to estimate full-term OP in H1, but forecast accuracy increases as OP accumulates in Q1-Q3. The FY10 IFIS consensus is for OP of ¥184.5bn, which is close to mgmt’s target of ¥185bn. We believe investors will start to recognise the risk of a shortfall following the Q3 results announcement, and that sustainable share price advances will be difficult after results come out. Mid-term FY11 OP target is high at ¥250bn; awaiting downward revision The current mid-term plan envisages FY11 OP of ¥250bn, requiring ¥65bn yoy OP growth, mostly through business improvements. We believe this target is too high. The IFIS consensus already assumes a downward revision to FY11 OP to ¥212.8bn. We await a revision for now and intend to revisit after analysing the achievability of the revised OP target Valuation: downgrade from Buy to Neutral; PT down from ¥800 to ¥600 With conditions unlikely to improve near term, we base our PT on average PBR (excluding the IT bubble period), of 2X, applied to end-FY10E adjusted BPS.

  • 3. Global Tech Daily 13 January 2011 Amdocs Rating: Buy Target: US$33.00 Price: US$27.87 RIC: DOX.N Prior: Neutral Prior: US$30.00 Mkt Cap: US$5.48bn BBG: DOX US Diversified Technology Services Analyst: Jason Kupferberg Tel: +1-212-713 3559 Upgrade to Buy on better risk/reward Looking through current transition year to EPS acceleration in F12 Primary reasons for our upgrade: 1) decisive actions by new CEO set up F12 for strong EPS growth acceleration following the current transition year, 2) re-investments announced in Nov. should help long-term growth profile (though we still believe pre-recession levels of 8-10% organic revenue growth will be tough to achieve), 3) more attractive valuation (11x/10x C11/C12E FCF, plus $7.29/share in net cash). Potential modest catalysts: F1Q print (1/25), analyst meeting (2/23). Continued favourable mix shift: emerging markets, managed services We believe DOX’s medium/long-term growth profile should be enhanced by a continued mix shift towards emerging markets (now almost 10% of total revs) and managed services (currently 45% of total revs). DOX also continues to enjoy an industry-leading reputation for product and service quality among its core client base in the communications sector, though we continue to acknowledge potential risks regarding customer concentration and competition. Operating margins should gradually improve off F1Q trough Per last quarter’s reset, F1Q11 operating margins are expected to be 15-17%. Depending on the pace/mix of new wins and internal investment spending, we think margins could exit F11 at 17%+ and be back in the ~18% range next year, which would likely promote multiple expansion for shares. Valuation: Upgrade to Buy from Neutral; new PT $33 vs. $30 prior Our estimates (which are GAAP, while consensus is pro forma) are unchanged. Our new PT is based on 12x unchanged C12 FCF estimate of $2.73 and our DCF. Source: The content presented above reflects a front page summary of UBS Research content, UBS estimates based on a share price of US$27.87 on 12 Jan 2011 17:12 EST UBS Global I/O: IT Hardware Computers Analyst: Maynard J. Um Tel: +1-212-713 3372 Consumer Weakness Weighs on 4Q10 PC Growth 4Q10 PC growth below expectations; APAC & US the culprits IDC reported preliminary 4Q10 y/y PC unit growth of 2.7% (+3.9% q/q) with Gartner reporting 3.1% growth (+5.1% q/q) below UBSe of 5.7% growth (+5.4% q/q). Ongoing challenges in the US consumer market, as well as softer than expected demand in APAC (IDC noted channel inventory issues in 4Q) were the main drivers of the shortfall, with the impact from tablets also playing a role. Enterprise unable to offset consumer softness; See some 2011 deceleration Similar to prior quarters, healthy corporate demand could not offset continued consumer softness. We continue to prefer enterprise over consumer & are comfortable with our 2011 PC unit growth est of 9.1% (IDC expects slightly less than +10%) vs +14% in 2010. Note that 2011 is likely to be marked by some ongoing mature mkt consumer softness (see limited 1H catalysts) offset somewhat by contd benefit from a corporate refresh & aggressive pricing, but expect visibility to remain cloudy. Results reinforce our developed market view that tablets are likely to push out PC replacement cycles, particularly near/medium-term. HP & Lenovo sequential share gainers; Dell overtakes Acer for #2 position According to IDC, HP maintained its top position and gained 170bps q/q (-70bps y/y) vs our expectation for flat share. Dell climbed to the #2 position despite losing 50bps q/q (this seq trend is better than normal & Dell gained 20bps y/y) driven by strength in emerging mkts & the ongoing corporate refresh. Acer dropped to the #3 global position as it lost 250bps q/q (- 220 bps y/y) which we believe was due to weakness in netbook/notebooks with much of the shortfall coming from Europe. Lenovo was flat q/q (+160bps y/y) given its leading market share in China, benefits from market expansion initiatives, and exposure to the corporate PC market. In the US, Apple gained 150bps y/y (global share not provided).

Tablets, weak consumer demand and a slowdown in Asia Pac demand were the general culprits to the lower than expected growth. Partially offsetting the worse than expected PC environment in FQ2 is upside in Kinect (8M units sell-in vs. our 5M est.). However the net is we’re lowering FQ2 and FY11 estimates. Estimate Changes We’re lowering FQ2 revenue by $200M (the net of -$500M for revised PC forecast, +$300M for revised Kinect sales) and EPS by $0.01 given the margin-unfriendly mix shift yielding our new FQ2 estimate of $19.1B/$0.69. Revenue is now inline with consensus and we’re $0.01 ahead in EPS, though we expect consensus estimates to be revised lower on the CQ4 PC data. With CQ4 PC trends likely to persist into CQ1 and CQ2 we’re lowering our FY11 estimate to $69B/$2.48 from $69.5B/$2.50 ($200M out of FQ2/FQ3, $100M out of FQ4). Fundamental View: Stock Trades at a Discount to 3 year EPS Outlook FY11 is year 1 of a 3 year enterprise product cycle. Stronger enterprise demand boosts ASPs and sets up 3 years of double digit EPS growth (est. CAGR 14%). Valuation: Inexpensive at 11.5x PE vs. 15.4x 5yr Avg & 14% EPS CAGR We expect this valuation gap to continue to narrow with continued execution throughout its FY11 product cycle. $35 price target = 14x FY11E EPS of $2.48.

  • 4. Global Tech Daily 13 January 2011 Asia Hardware Insights Technology Hardware & Equipment Analyst: Arthur Hsieh Tel: +8862-8722 7348 The ODMs strike back? NB food chain: margin expansion on the back of price hike? Despite some initial success, we think Quanta could still face the most threat from EMS makers once they ramp up their learning curve or become aggressive again. If OEMs would allow price hike for industry wide issues, Wistron should also qualify and maintain its superior margins. Overall, ODMs could pass on a major portion of the recent increase in cost to the OEMs, but rather than expanding margins Touch panel: low season provides buying opportunity We believe the order flow will remain slow into Q1 due to product transition for tablet and seasonality in handset demand. However, we expect demand to pick up once all new products are ready and the limited industry capacity in cover glass should prevent oversupply from happening. Component makers likely to show better seasonality While most component makers’ December revenue show MoM decline, they expect Q1 will show better than normal seasonality. We believe that’s mainly because 1) smartphone demand continues to be strong 2) launch of new tablet provides new opportunities for select component makers. Positive on HTC, TPK and Catcher We are positive on HTC due to its share gain in Q410 and the growth potential in Android platform. We like TPK given its leading position in Apple’s supply chain and its capability to ramp up yield rate ahead of others in a product transition. We also like Catcher as we believe it has stronger bargaining power given the limited number of capable unibody metal casing suppliers.

Um Tel: +1-212-713 3372 Expecting Strong Q1 & 2011; Raise Target Apple a key beneficiary during holiday qtr with its strong product line-up We believe Apple’s FY1Q11 was supported by a strong product line-up that included some of the most heavily gifted items during the holiday season (iPad, iPhone, iPod), as well as strong buzz & demand for MacBook Air (MBA). With strong demand for its products for most of the quarter, we believe Apple is in store to report a strong Q1 & we raise our rev/EPS ests to $24.5bn/$5.40 from $23.9b/$5.14 (Street: $24.2b/$5.31). Accrual reversal & cost improvements likely to offset MacBook Air mix We believe MBA sales were strong as lower price points drove consumers & holiday shoppers. Though we believe this would normally result in lower overall Mac gross mgn, potential warranty accrual reversals (90bps impact last qtr), component pricing tailwinds, & iPad cost improvements should more than offset mix shift. Looking forward, CDMA iPhone mix should help gross margins, somewhat offset by iPad2 in FY3Q, but expect mix to improve with iPhone 5. Raising estimates Raising ests to embed higher iPhone (69.4mn CY11), iPad (29.2mn CY11) units & opex adjustments. FY11 rev/EPS increases to $93.7b/$20.08 from $91.5b/$19.42. Valuation: Raise Target to $415 (was $365) and reiterate Buy Rating Our $415 price target is based on ~20x (~15.5x incl. cash) our CY11 EPS estimate.

We’re modelling FQ4 $810M/$0.45 vs. consensus $804M/$0.44. Positive VAR Survey: Top 3 Takeaways 28% of VARs reported beating their FQ4 target which was an improvement vs. 23% beating their target in FQ3. VARs reported actual sequential sales growth in FQ4 of 8.4% vs. their target +7.9%. 2) FQ4 sales linearity showed a strong close to the quarter, and 3) no irregular discounting. FQ4 Preview, Expect Beat We expect a FQ4 beat based on our channel checks, continued strength in server shipments, enterprise demand for Cloud solutions, and surging demand for VMW’s new add-on management tools. VMW has a meaningful opportunity to cross-sell add-on management tools to its vSphere customers. We are encouraged by our VAR survey showing strong attach for vCenter. 40% of channel partners indicated 50%+ of their customer base are adopting the vCenter management tools. Valuation $114 PT based on 30x FY12e FCF/sh of $3.79. Our target multiple is a 1.3 PEG on FY09-12E FCF/share and is inline with the current FY11e FCF/sh trading multiple.

FQ1 (Dec.) Earnings Preview: Expect Meet or Slight Beat While we believe trends were solid, FQ1s can start off seasonally slow. We expect NUAN to post in-line to slight upside to our ests: rev UBSe $320M, Street $319M, guide $312-325M; EPS USBe $0.31, St. $0.31, guide $0.28-0.32. Date: early Feb. NUAN Story Hitting Mainstream, Creating Multi-Yr Rev Engines Co’s dominant leadership in speech & other mobile input technologies was evident at recent CES and Detroit auto show, with expansion at Toyota and Harman.

Our estimates are 2% ahead of consensus, which expects TCS’s revenue to grow in line with that of Infosys. We believe such an outperformance could trigger near-term upside for TCS’s share price, which will release its results on 17 January 2011. Volume growth likely to remain relatively high despite seasonal weakness The December quarter is seasonally weak for most large Indian vendors due to the holiday season in the US and Europe, which are their major markets. We forecast QoQ volume growth of 7% for TCS, 4.2% lower than in Q2 FY11. Even so, TCS is likely to be the fastest growing firm among its peers in Q3 FY11. Our margin forecast for TCS is more conservative than for Infosys TCS has so far bucked the margin decline trend in almost all Indian IT vendors. Its Q2 FY11 EBITDA margin reached a five-year high of 30% despite rising wage pressures and currency appreciation. We forecast a 40bp decline in its EBITDA margin in Q3 FY11, which is higher than the 15bp decline we forecast for Infosys (despite Infosys offering 20,000 job promotions in Q3 FY11). Valuation: maintain Neutral, Q3 could trigger near-term stock upside We expect TCS to continue its relative outperformance to its peers in Q3 FY11, which we believe could offer near-term share price upsides. While we maintain our Neutral rating, we believe the current 7% discount to Infosys’ FY11E PE could narrow following a strong Q3 FY11. We derive our Rs1,150 price target from a DCF-based methodology and explicitly forecast long- term valuation drivers using UBS’s VCAM tool. We assume a WACC of 11.5% and terminal growth of 3%.

This is slightly above our forecast (¥120bn and ¥10bn). Compared with Jul-Sep, DRAM orders declined, NAND/foundry increased, and logic fell sharply. The decline in logic orders is a reaction to large-scale orders received for a Samsung plant in the US and was as expected. Current company outlook: increase expected for Jan-Mar At present, the only thing the company has said about its forecast for Jan-Mar is that it expects an increase from Oct-Dec. Specific figures will apparently be released when results are announced on 31 Jan. We forecast semiconductor orders of ¥160bn and FPD/PV orders of ¥10bn. DRAM orders are likely to decline, but the scenario for NAND/foundry products to drive orders is unchanged. FPD/PV orders could exceed the UBS forecast on growth for small and medium-sized LTPS products. We plan to review our forecasts after a company visit and further analysis. UBS forecast revised slightly; discounting higher R&D costs, etc. We have revised our forecast slightly as the FY10 R&D cost estimate was raised from ¥67bn to ¥71bn when interim results were announced. We have revised our OP forecasts from ¥102.3bn to ¥96.1bn for FY10 and from ¥120.4bn to ¥120.2bn for FY11. The small revision to sales reflects current strength for orders. Valuation We maintain a PT of ¥8,500 based on a FY11E PER of 18X.

  • 14. Global Tech Daily 13 January 2011 Statement of RiskTechnology sector investing involves a high degree of risk. Rapid technologicalchanges, increasing competition, and exposure to macroeconomic cycles areamong the many risks faced by investors in technology stocks. Moreover, it isextremely difficult to project the financial results of tech companies since theiroperating models are highly volatile and unpredictable. Finally, valuing techstocks can prove challenging as neither traditional nor non-traditional valuationmeasures have provided much insight into how these stocks trade.
