12:35 EDTDATA, MSFT, QLIK, SPLK, TDCTableau advances after analyst bullish on growth outlook
Shares of Tableau (DATA), which develops data analysis tools, are rising after research firm Robert W. Baird upgraded the stock to Outperform from Neutral in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: After speaking with Tableau's partners that sell its products, Baird analyst Steven Ashley reported that these companies think that Tableau has "only scratched the surface" of its market opportunity. Tableau's potential market is much larger than most industry experts believe, Ashley stated. Microsoft's (MSFT) Excel is the product that Tableau's offerings replace most often, and there are 325M corporate Excel users, the analyst stated. Meanwhile, less than 500,000 Tableau products are being actively used, Ashley added. The analyst cautioned that he does not expect Tableau to report stronger than expected first quarter results, but anticipates that the company's results will be strong and in-line with expectations. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies that sell data analysis products include Qlik Technologies (QLIK), Splunk (SPLK), and Teradata (TDC). PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Tableau jumped $3.05, or 4%, to $79.13.
