14:47 EDTSAPAnalysts debate Workday after post-earnings selloff
Last night's results and guidance from Workday (WDAY) prompted a selloff in the stock a several cautious notes from research firms. However, multiple analysts remain bullish on the company and see strong prospects hidden behind the "relatively conservative" guidance. WHAT'S NEW: After the market close on Tuesday, Workday reported first quarter losses per share of (2c) on revenues of $251M, both of which beat consensus estimates. However, the company's second quarter revenue guidance of $270M-$274M bracketed the consensus forecast of about $272M. ANALYST REACTIONS: Brean Capital's Sarah Hindlian noted that traders were likely disappointed by the lack of major client announcements for Workday's FMS product, but said she believes FMS will be successful in the long term. Hindlian added that she expects Workday to become a "clear winner" eventually, but warned of a significant correction in the stock and noted that "significant" R&D spending is required before the company can capture the full market and she reiterates a Hold rating on the stock. Jefferies' John DiFucci and Brad Zelnick were less hopeful, saying the company's 31% billings growth versus 69% last year reflects "very aggressive" competition from Oracle (ORCL) and SAP (SAP), which could signal lessened momentum for Workday. The firm believes renewals may be a bright spot for the company going forward, but kept a Hold rating on the stock and cut its price target to $92 from $99 on the shares. Wells Fargo's Jason Maynard said the company's "relatively conservative" guidance is likely due to some lag in large deal signings as well as a relatively slow acceleration in Europe. The firm lowered its price target to $105-$110 from $110-$120, but remained optimistic on Workday, citing "extremely strong" renewals, new client wins in human capital management, and a maturing financial product. Richard Davis and David Hynes from Canaccord lowered Workday's price target to $100 from $110, but nevertheless said they believe the company faces a "decade of growth." The firm was not surprised at the recent selloff and recommended using weakness in the stock price to fill out investment positions in Workday. PRICE ACTION: Workday is down over 10% to about $83 per share in afternoon trading. Oracle and SAP are up roughly 1.8% and 1%, respectively.

14:54 EDTNFLXCiti ups Netflix target on international potential as company eyes China
Citigroup raised its price target for Netflix (NFLX) to $722 and maintained a Buy rating on the stock, citing the company's underappreciated international expansion and declining churn trends. WHAT'S NEW: In a research note, Citigroup analyst Mark May raised his price target on Netflix to $722 from $584, saying that despite the stock's 31% jump since reporting first quarter earnings on April 15, Netflix shares still have room to advance as the company extends its service globally. May believes the U.S. only accounts for 18% of Netflix's total addressable market based on broadband household metrics. Additionally, he thinks subscribership should trend positively as original content grows and churn declines, resulting in a potential 20% U.S. streaming revenue growth in 2016. The firm stated that Netflix's financial model should generate similar operating profits from "most" of the markets it chooses to enter, and that non-English speaking Netflix markets are being significantly undervalued when taking into account their size. Based on Citi's analysis, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand have a $25 implied enterprise value per broadband household, which, at roughly 10% of the U.S. metric, implies "very conservative" assumptions. Citi highlighted that Netflix's current stock price does not account for any additional value from further international launches, which could include Spain, Italy, Portugal, China, Russia, and India. The firm also remains optimistic on subscriber numbers for coming quarters, saying both churn and content offerings are improving at the company. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On May 14, Bloomberg reported that Netflix has held talks with several Chinese media companies, including Wasu Media, backed by Alibaba (BABA) chairman Jack Ma. In response to the report, a Netflix spokesperson remarked that the company plans to be "nearly global" by the end of 2016. PRICE ACTION: Netflix is trading near flat on the day to $622.47.

08:23 EDTAMZNAmazon.com price target raised to $520 on bullish trends at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley raised Amazon.com's price target to $520 from $450 on bullish trends and multiple sources of potential upside. The firm's analyst believes the 2016 consensus gross profit view is 5% too low and implies a deceleration to 0% in 2016, which has never happened. Morgan Stanley said fulfillment costs per unit are falling for the first time since 2010 and will continue in 2015, but expects a return to investment in 2016. The firm also said international retail losses aren't as bad as perceived and believes they will moderate in 2016, given recent incremental discipline. Morgan believes Street estimates for AWS are too conservative, given its easy comps and the Q1 margin upside. As a result, Morgan Stanley raised its gross profit estimates for Amazon by 1% for 2015 and by 2% for 2016 and keeps its Overweight rating on the shares.
08:15 EDTGOOG, CRMSalesforce acquisition still possible, says JMP Securities

All three potential acquirers have significant cash and strong potential synergies with Salesforce, and the world is moving to the cloud, the firm explained. It raised its price target on Salesforce to $80 from $75 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

16:21 EDTNFLXStocks end week little changed as data, deals offset bond yield jumps
Stocks ended the week little changed as a number of M&A deals and a few relatively strong economic data points offset worries about rising bond yields. MACRO NEWS: U.S. weekly jobless claims came in better than expected and reached the lowest four-week average level in 15 years... In Europe, the combined GDP of the 19 eurozone countries grew 0.4% in the first quarter, which was a bit weaker than the 0.5% consensus growth forecast but a pickup from the 0.3% growth pace of the final quarter of last year. Of note, all four of the euro zone's largest economies recorded growth in the same quarter for the first time since the first half of 2010... The People's Bank of China reduced its one year interest rate by 0.25%, marking the third time in the last six months that the central bank has cut benchmark rates... Bond yields surged in many of the world's largest economies, raising worries about inflation and putting pressure on stocks in the beginning of the week. COMPANY NEWS: There was a significant amount of M&A activity again this week, with the headliner being Verizon's (VZ) deal to acquire AOL (AOL) for $50 per share in a transaction valued at $4.4B. Danaher (DHR) agreed to buy purification technologies supplier Pall Corporation (PLL) for $127.20 per share in cash. Danaher also announced that it plans to split itself into two publicly traded companies. Energy infrastructure company Williams (WMB) announced a simplification deal to buy its affiliate Williams Partners (WPZ) for $13.9B in an all-stock transaction. Energy exploration company Noble Energy (NBL) agreed to acquire Rosetta Resources (ROSE) in an all-stock deal. Noble is buying Rosetta for $2.1B in stock plus the assumption of Rosetta's net debt of $1.8B... Alibaba (BABA) acquired a 9.3% stake in Zulily (ZU), an e-commerce retailer geared toward women. A person familiar with the matter reportedly told the Wall Street Journal that the Chinese e-commerce giant is not pursuing an outright acquisition of the U.S. company, however...

On the daily chart there is a small potential bullish flag developing. The pattern won't become active unless there is a breakout above $585.
