11:26 EDTN, CALD, ORCL, CRMSalesforce.com rallies following beat and raise quarter
Shares of cloud computing solutions provider Salesforce.com (CRM) are advancing after the company posted better than expected second quarter results, and raised its fiscal 2015 outlook. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Salesforce.com reported Q2 adjusted EPS of 13c and revenue of $1.32B, topping analysts’ consensus estimates of 12c and $1.29B, respectively. Q2 operating cash flow came in at $246M, up 34% year-over-year. WHAT’S NOTABLE: For FY15, Salesforce.com raised its EPS view to 50c-52c from 49c-51c, compared to consensus of 51c. It also boosted its FY15 revenue outlook to $5.34B-$5.37B from $5.3B- $5.34B, versus consensus of $5.34B. CEO Marc Benioff said, "Salesforce.com continues to be the fastest growing top 10 software company with 38% year-over-year growth in revenue, and more than 30% year-over-year growth in deferred revenue and operating cash flow in the second quarter." On the company’s Q2 earnings conference call, Benioff noted that Europe was performing "beyond expectations," and that the company was just now beginning to realize the enormous potential of international opportunities. The company plans to introduce a "major new product" at the upcoming Dreamforce event. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, analyst commentary was decidedly positive. Deutsche Bank raised its price target for Salesforce.com shares to $70 from $65, saying the company's set-up for the second half looks better following its Q2 results. The firm reiterated its Buy rating on the stock. Another firm, UBS, also raised its price target on the shares to $76 from $73. The firm sees stronger tailwinds in the second half including its large enterprise deal pipeline, upcoming event catalysts, and deals in SMB. UBS has a Buy rating on the stock. Oppenheimer thinks the company's guidance for the remainder of the year can still rise further. The firm believes that the company's success in marketing and platform products could enable its revenue to beat expectations going forward. It kept a $71 price target and Outperform rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Salesforce.com rose $4.60, or about 8.25%, to $60.31 on over three times its average daily trading volume. Including today’s advance, the stock has gained approximately 37% over the past twelve months.
