13:57 EDTCRMWorkday rises after being called 'better' buyout target for Microsoft
Workday (WDAY) shares are inching higher this afternoon after The Information said the company is "the better [acquisition] choice" for Microsoft (MSFT), were the tech giant to pursue an entry into customer and employee tracking software. WHAT'S NEW: The Information's Steve Nellis today said that while both "Salesforce (CRM) and Workday have enough revenue momentum to help Microsoft become a major seller" in the customer relationship/human capital management space, Workday is the "better choice for several reasons, including the fact that Salesforce’s products feel dated." WHAT'S NOTABLE: Today's report from The Information comes after Salesforce was upgraded to Buy from Hold at Brean Capital. Among other factors, Brean identifies Salesforce's product improvements as a positive for the company. Steve Nellis does not appear convinced, saying Workday has the edge in products. The upward move follows speculative reports and rumors in recent months that Microsoft has eyed a Salesforce takeover. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Workday are up about 1% to $77.41 this afternoon, while Salesforce has risen just under 0.5%.

11:19 EDTCRMBrean Capital ups Salesforce citing improved revenue outlook
Research firm Brean Capital upgraded Salesforce.com (CRM) to Buy from Hold in a note to investors today, saying that the company is poised to obtain more revenue from its marketing and services products. Additionally, Salesforce should benefit from its newer products and the increased integration of its offerings, the firm contended. WHAT'S NEW: Pent-up demand for better ad management tools will drive sales of Salesforce's marketing products, according to Brean Capital analyst Sarah Hindlian. Meanwhile, the company's service cloud offerings will generate more revenue due to changes in customer service trends, Hindlian believes. Additionally, Salesforce's new products and the increased integration of its clouds will enable it sell all of its offerings more effectively, boosting its overall revenue and margins, she contended. Following the release of its newer products, Salesforce provides better coverage of the entire customer lifecycle, increasing its ability to sell all of its systems together, the analyst explained. Hindlian raised her fiscal 2017 and fiscal 2018 estimates for the company slightly above consensus levels, and set an $85 price target on the shares. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies offering cloud-based digital engagement solutions include eGain (EGAN), Zendesk (ZEN) and LivePerson (LPSN). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Salesforce dropped 0.7% to $68.69.

10:34 EDTAMZNAnalysts differ on Yelp after company said to halt sale process
The shares of Yelp (YELP) have fallen in each of the last two sessions after Bloomberg reported that its CEO had decided not to sell the company at this time. Two research firms were upbeat on the stock after the pullback, but Piper Jaffray's well-known analyst, Gene Munster, was cautious on the stock's near-term outlook. WHAT'S NEW: Last Thursday afternoon, Bloomberg reported that Yelp's CEO and founder Jeremy Stoppelman had decided not to sell the company in the near-term. Stoppelman's decision came after Goldman Sachs, which had been hired by Yelp to find potential buyers of the company, identified several interested suitors, the news service stated. BULLISH TAKE: Yelp's stock is significantly undervalued and investors should buy the shares, wrote Brean Capital analyst Tom Forte in a note to investors today. Noting that Bloomberg reported multiple potential suitors for Yelp had been found, Forte contended that many Alibaba (BABA), Amazon.com (AMZN), Facebook (FB), Google (GOOG), Groupon (GRPN), Microsoft (MSFT), Priceline (PCLN), Rakuten, and Yahoo! (YHOO) are all potential acquirers. Moreover, Stoppelman and Yelp's other board members probably decided not to sell Yelp because they believe that it is worth more than the stock indicates, according to Forte, who added that this stance indicates that the company's business has held up well recently. He kept a $58 price target and Buy rating on Yelp. Similarly, SunTrust analyst Robert Peck believes that many companies could still look to buy Yelp. Moreover, the company's valuation is "paltry" versus its peers, while Stoppelman's willingness to consider selling the company should support the stock, the analyst stated. Although Yelp is facing some challenges, its valuation already implies that consensus 2016 estimates for the company will drop by 10%-20%, according to Peck, who kept a Buy rating on the shares. BEARISH TAKE: In the wake of Bloomberg's report, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said he believes investors will conclude that Yelp was unable to sell itself. Additionally, comScore data for June indicates that Yelp's unique user metrics for the quarter will be disappointing, the analyst stated. However, he predicted that the company's user growth would reaccelerate in the fall, causing investor sentiment to rebound. Although Munster is upbeat on Yelp's long-term outlook, he cut his price target on the name to $40 from $46 and kept a Neutral rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Yelp fell 1.4% to $37.65. That follows the 10% decline the stock suffered on Thursday in its last day of trading prior to the long holiday weekend.

06:03 EDTAMZNBrean recommends buying shares of Yelp after selloff
Brean Capital analyst Tom Forte believes shares of Yelp are worth "a lot more than current levels" with or without a company sale. He recommends buying the name after Bloomberg reported Thursday that the company had called off its sale process. He points out the article noted that Yelp had multiple interested buyers. Forte's list of potential buyers for Yelp include Alibaba (BABA), Amazon.com (AMZN), Facebook (FB), Google (GOOG), Groupon (GRPN), Microsoft (MSFT), Priceline (PCLN), Rakuten, and Yahoo! (YHOO). Yelp operates the largest crowd-sourced local business directory globally, the analyst tells investors this morning in a research note. Forte keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $58 price target. Shares closed Thursday down $4.23 to $38.20.

05:57 EDTVMWVMware, Carahsoft pay $75.5M to settle claims of overcharging government
VMware and Carahsoft Technology Corporation yesterday agreed to pay $75.5M to resolve allegations that they violated the False Claims Act by misrepresenting their commercial pricing practices and overcharging the government on VMware software products and related services, the Department of Justice announced. VMware is a Delaware corporation that specializes in computer virtualization software and has its principal place of business in Palo Alto, California. Carahsoft is a privately held Maryland corporation that distributes information technology products to federal, state and local governments and has its principal place of business in Reston, Virginia. The settlement resolves allegations that VMware and Carahsoft made false statements to the government in connection with the sale of VMware products and services under Carahsoft’s MAS contract. These false statements allegedly concealed the companies’ commercial pricing practices and enabled the companies to overcharge the government for VMware’s products and services from 2007 through 2013. The civil settlement resolves a lawsuit filed under the whistleblower provision of the False Claims Act, which permits private parties to file suit on behalf of the United States for false claims and obtain a portion of the government’s recovery. The civil lawsuit was filed in the Eastern District of Virginia by Dane Smith, who is a former vice president of the Americas at VMware Inc. Smith’s share of the recovery has not been determined.

05:59 EDTIBMGartner: Worldwide IT spending on pace to decline 5.5% in 2015
Worldwide IT spending is on pace to total $3.5T in 2015, a 5.5% decline from 2014, according to the latest forecast by Gartner, Inc. Analysts attribute the decline to the rising U.S. dollar. In constant-currency terms, the market is projected to grow 2.5%. In Gartner's previous forecast in April, it had forecast IT spending to decline 1.3% in U.S. dollars and grow 3.1% in constant currency. "We want to stress that this is not a market crash. Such are the illusions that large swings in the value of the U.S. dollar versus other currencies can create," said John-David Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner. "However, there are secondary effects to the rising U.S. dollar. Vendors do have to raise prices to protect costs and margins of their products, and enterprises and consumers will have to make new purchase decisions in light of the new prices." Communications services will continue to be the largest IT spending segment in 2015 with spending at nearly $1.5T. However, this segment is also experiencing the strongest decline among the five IT sectors. In the device market, mobile phones continue to be the leading segment, with growth in Apple phones, especially in China, keeping overall phone spending consistent. However, overall smartphone unit growth will start to flatten. The PC and tablet market continues to weaken. The expected 10 percent increase in average PC pricing in currency-impacted countries is going ahead, delaying purchases even more than expected. Excessive PC inventory levels, especially in Western Europe, need to be cleared, which will delay Windows 10 inventory in the second half of the year. Within the data center systems segment, storage and network markets are both expected to see weaker growth in U.S. dollar terms as a result of the appreciation of the U.S. dollar. Reference Link

Noting that shares of both HP (HPQ) and EMC (EMC) have been stagnant, Raymond James analyst Brian Alexander repeated that he believes shareholders of both would earn substantial returns from a deal between the two and that he thinks an HP acquisition of EMC is "more than a distinct possibility." Alexander previously said in a note to investors on June 4 that he believed HP will ultimately buy EMC, including VMware (VMW). Assuming EMC is acquired for $32-$34 at various combinations of debt/stock, accretion for HP ranges from 39%-52%, Alexander calculates. Raymond James has a Market Perform rating on HP, a Strong Buy rating on EMC and an Outperform rating on VMware.

06:51 EDTNFLXNetflix downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi
Citi analyst Mark May downgraded Netflix to Neutral with the stock up 49% since his upgrade on April 10 and 99% year-to-date. May believes more signs of traction in recently launched international markets are needed before shares can reach his upside case of over $950. Further, he points out that the stock has sold off meaningfully following the Q2 and Q3 earnings reports in each of the last three years. May has a $722 price target on the streaming service. Shares of Netflix closed yesterday down $2.58 to $678.61 after billionaire investor Carl Icahn disclosed that he exited his position in the name. Also yesterday, Societe Generale downgraded Netflix to Sell from Buy, saying shares went from undervalued to "pricing perfection."

08:25 EDTNFLXNetflix on pace to have larger audience than all networks, FBR says
FBR Capital analyst Barton Crockett says that while Netflix (NFLX) is not rated by Nielsen (NLSN), the 10B hours streamed in Q1 reported by the company are equivalent to having a 24-hour rating of 2.6, on par with Disney's (DIS) ABC and Comcast's (CMCSA) NBC. And while ratings at broadcasters are falling on average, Netflix is growing its ratings at a 40%-plus compound annual rate, Crockett tells investors this morning in a research note. At this pace, Netflix in a year will have a larger 24-hour audience than all broadcast networks, he contends. Regarding last night's 7-for-1 stock split announcement, Crockett says the move reflects management's confidence in the "durability of the recent stock surge." For perspective, three years ago Netflix shares were around $60. This morning they are trading up $18.69 to $699.88 in the pre-market. Crockett has an Outperform rating on the streaming service with a $900 price target.

06:04 EDTIBM, AMZNOracle 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."
