10:40 EDTAMZN, BKS, EBAYAmazon.com slides after guidance disappoints
Shares of online retailer Amazon.com (AMZN) are falling after the company’s second quarter outlook failed to impress the street. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Amazon.com reported first quarter earnings per share of 23c and revenue of $19.74B, against consensus views of 23c and $19.43B, respectively. WHAT’S NOTABLE: The company forecast Q2 operating income of ($455M)-($55M) and Q2 revenue of $18.1B-$19.8B, compared to consensus of $19.03B. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, analyst commentary was decidedly negative. Three firms -- Citigroup, Wells Fargo, and Deutsche Bank -- all lowered their respective price targets on Amazon.com. The firms cited the company's Q2 sales guidance, which came in below its expectations at the mid-point, as well as its Q2 operating income guidance, which came in below expectations, as reasons for the downgrades. Another firm, Raymond James, downgraded Amazon.com to Outperform from Strong Buy, citing mixed Q1 results, a continued significant investment cycle, and slowing unit growth and media sales. The firm lowered its price target on the shares to $391 from $443. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Amazon.com is down 32.26, or about 9.6%, to $304.89 on heavy trading volume. Despite today’s pull back, the stock has gained over 10% over the past twelve months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Others in the online retail space include eBay (EBAY) and Barnes & Noble (BKS).

06:04 EDTAMZNOracle says extending enterprise cloud portfolio
At a live event yesterday, Oracle (ORCL) Executive Chairman of the Board and CTO Larry Ellison announced new additions to the Oracle Cloud Platform, a comprehensive, integrated suite of services that make it easier for developers, IT professionals, business users and analysts to build, extend and integrate cloud applications. With more than 24 new cloud services, the Oracle Cloud Platform "extends Oracle's leadership with the world's broadest and deepest portfolio" of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. Newly available Oracle Cloud services include, Oracle Database Cloud - Exadata, Oracle Archive Storage Cloud, Oracle Big Data Cloud, Oracle Integration Cloud, Oracle Mobile Cloud, and Oracle Process Cloud. The Oracle Cloud Platform helps customers build new applications, extend existing ones, and easily move existing on-premises workloads to the cloud with no application changes. The services are designed to maximize end user experience and productivity; enable developers to manage and analyze data, rapidly develop, test and deploy applications; enable architects to quickly integrate across on-premises and cloud applications; and enable business users to drive rich business insights and enterprise collaboration. With the Oracle Cloud Platform, customers and partners are able to take advantage of the industry-leading Oracle middleware and database software that thousands of global organizations already use to run their own businesses, all delivered via cloud. The extensive level of automation that has been engineered into the Oracle Cloud, results in faster time-to-value, greater innovation, and lower cost for customers. "Oracle is growing really fast. We sold $426M worth of business in SaaS and PaaS last quarter, a 200 percent increase over the same quarter last year. That's an industry record, no company has ever sold that much in just one quarter," said Ellison. "Oracle is the only company on the planet that can deliver a complete, integrated, standards-based suite of services at every layer of the cloud. Those technology advantages enable us to be much more cost-effective than our competitors. Our new Archive Storage service goes head-to-head with Amazon Glacier (AMZN) and it's one-tenth their price."
