  • MORGAN STANLEY RESEARCH October 15, 2010 Tech Hardware Insights Exhibit 1 Earnings Previews Com pany Date Preview s IBM 18-Oct We like IBM as a 4Q10 story. Our October CIO survey signaled a shift to mid to late cycle IT spending, w ith CIOs planning to increase spending on services in 2011, w hile decreasing spending on hardw are and communications equipment, and keeping softw are spending flat. In hardw are, w e believe this signals a rotation into more diversified, large-cap names, such as IBM, w ith 80% of revenue and about 90% of operating profit coming from softw are and services. In the December quarter, IBM’s hardw are business should also start to benefit from new entry-level and high-end Pow er series, and mainframe products launched in 3Q10. For the call, services signings w ill once again be the key metric, given w eaker than expected signings in the June quarter. Conference Call: 4:30 PM, 210-339-1426, password: 3QEarnings AAPL 18-Oct We continue to like Apple heading into C3Q10 results next w eek despite the recent run up. We expect results w ill come in w ell ahead of expectations triggering another round of upw ard estimate revisions. We believe iPhone (MSe: 12.5M units) and iPad (MSe: 4.5M units) momentum continued during the quarter but upside is limited by supply constraints that have eased in recent w eeks. We see the greatest upside relative to expectations in gross margins (low er component costs) and mac units (market share gains). Our 2011 EPS estimate of $20.36 remains xx% above the street driven by our above consensus unit estimates for iPhone (61.5M) and iPad (30M). Conference Call: 5:00 PM, 888-230-5496 EMC 19-Oct We expect EMC to report 3Q results in-line w ith our and consensus expectations, w hich call for 3% Q/Q revenue grow th, slightly below normal seasonality. Our channel checks, CIO and channel surveys all highlight healthy storage demand in the quarter w ith solid 4Q pipelines. We believe EMC appropriately set 3Q expectations for below seasonal public sector spending, helping alleviate concerns around large enterprise w eakness and federal spending. Additionally, checks by our softw are team suggest VMW’s results w ill be at least inline w ith expectations. Conference Call: 8:30 AM, 210-795-1098, password: EMC WDC 19-Oct Low investor expectations and stabilizing PC data points provide a favorable setup into results. C3Q PC unit grow th of 8% Q/Q (as reported by IDC) w as better than our estimate of 6%, and compares to our 4% HDD unit estimate for WDC. For C4Q, w e model 4% unit grow th, versus investor expectations of flat-to-dow n. We look for a reset to C4Q earnings estimates w ith gross margins sequentially declining due to aggressive pricing, low unit grow th, and limited new product introductions. We expect similar results from both STX and WDC. Conference Call: 5:00 PM, 800-857-4532 ISLN 21-Oct We look for modest upside to our revenue estimate, w hich calls for a 2% Q/Q decline (+44% Y/Y grow th) follow ing strong 2Q results and believe the company is on track to achieve its mid-40s revenue grow th guidance. How ever, at nearly 8x CY11 EV/Sales, Isilon shares reflect a more strategic view of the business given its differentiated solution in the high-grow th, scale-out NAS market. Conference Call: 8:30 AM, 866-770-7051, password: 80081247 NCR 21-Oct We expect NCR to report 3Q results in-line w ith our and consensus expectations, w hich call for 5% Y/Y revenue grow th. The key issues for the call are revenue and order grow th for the regional ATM and self-service POS businesses. Analyst day on November 16 is the next catalyst in our view , as the company plans to give more details regarding its business segments than it has in the last tw o years. Conference Call: 4:30 PM QLGC 21-Oct QLogic pre-announced Sep quarter results at the high-end of guidance on October 7. Today, w e dow ngraded the company from Overw eight to Equal-w eight, as near-term earnings and multiple upside appear limited given decelerating server unit grow th. We also low ered our CY11 server revenue grow th estimate to 1% from prior 4% (compared to IDC at 2.4%). Please see our note titled "Dow ngrading on Slow er Demand in Server Market." For the call, December quarter revenue guidance is the key metric. Historical seasonality is +8% Q/Q.

STOCK RATINGS Morgan Stanley uses a relative rating system using terms such as Overweight, Equal-weight, Not-Rated or Underweight (see definitions below). Morgan Stanley does not assign ratings of Buy, Hold or Sell to the stocks we cover. Overweight, Equal-weight, Not-Rated and Underweight are not the equivalent of buy, hold and sell. Investors should carefully read the definitions of all ratings used in Morgan Stanley Research. In addition, since Morgan Stanley Research contains more complete information concerning the analyst's views, investors should carefully read Morgan Stanley Research, in its entirety, and not infer the contents from the rating alone. In any case, ratings (or research) should not be used or relied upon as investment advice. An investor's decision to buy or sell a stock should depend on individual circumstances (such as the investor's existing holdings) and other considerations. Global Stock Ratings Distribution (as of September 30, 2010) For disclosure purposes only (in accordance with NASD and NYSE requirements), we include the category headings of Buy, Hold, and Sell alongside our ratings of Overweight, Equal-weight, Not-Rated and Underweight. Morgan Stanley does not assign ratings of Buy, Hold or Sell to the stocks we cover. Overweight, Equal-weight, Not-Rated and Underweight are not the equivalent of buy, hold, and sell but represent recommended relative weightings (see definitions below). To satisfy regulatory requirements, we correspond Overweight, our most positive stock rating, with a buy recommendation; we correspond Equal-weight and Not-Rated to hold and Underweight to sell recommendations, respectively. 26
