06:17 EDTMSFTCiti cuts Microsoft estimates, price target ahead of Q3 results
Ahead of the tech giant's Q3 results on April 23 and analyst day on April 29, Citigroup cut its below consensus estimates for Microsoft to reflect currency headwinds, lower PC units and reductions in commercial licensing. Citi's FY15, FY16 and FY17 earnings estimates now stand at $2.59, $2.71 and $2.90. The firm believes further contraction to Microsoft’s valuation multiple is possible given downside risk to consensus numbers and "medium-term uncertainty on multiple fronts." It believes the tech giant's strategic issues, including Windows challenges and the cloud transition, have no easy answers. Citi cut its price target for Microsoft shares to $36 from $38 and keeps a Sell rating on the name.

07:15 EDTAXPAmerican Express shares could hit $105 in 18 months, says William Blair
William Blair analyst Robert Napoli says shares of American Express (AXP) are trading at nearly a 20% valuation discount to the S&P 500, reflecting "very high" pessimism in the name. Napoli tells investors today that other periods of "extreme pessimism" for American Express included 1998, 2001, and 2008/2009, with each proving to be a buying opportunity. He believes the current period will be no different. Napoli expects Amex shares to trend to historical valuation levels as investors look past the loss of Costco (COST) and better appreciate the company's growth opportunities. The analyst believes a stock price of around $105 is “reasonable” in about 18 months. The credit card issuer closed Friday up 43c to $79.59.
