11:54 EDTVMWRed Hat soars to 52-week high after beat and raise quarter
Shares of open source software solutions provider Red Hat (RHT) are rallying after the company’s third quarter results surpassed analysts’ consensus estimates and it raised its outlook for fiscal 2015. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Red Hat reported Q3 adjusted earnings per share of 42c and revenue of $455.9M, topping analysts’ consensus estimates of 40c and $451.39M, respectively. Q3 subscription revenue was $395M, up 15% year-over-year, while operating cash flow of $133M was up 40% year-over-year. CFO Charlie Peters noted that strong performance in the quarter was driven by outstanding sales execution. He said, “performance this quarter with large deals was exceptional, setting new records in number of deals over $5M in a quarter and deals over $10M in a Q3.” Peters also announced his intention to retire in the next twelve months. WHAT’S NOTABLE: Looking ahead to Q4, Red Hat forecast EPS of 40c-41c and revenue of $456M-$459M, compared to consensus of 41c and $459.39M, respectively. The company raised its outlook for FY15 EPS to $1.57-$1.58 from $1.53-$1.55, versus consensus of $1.54. It also boosted the bottom end its FY15 revenue outlook to $1.78B-$1.79B from $1.77B-$1.79B, compared to the consensus of $1.78B. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, four research firms - Piper Jaffray, Stifel, UBS, and Oppenheimer - all raised their respective price targets on Red Hat. Each cited the company’s stronger than expected Q3 results. All four maintained a Buy or equivalent rating on the shares and among the four Oppenheimer took its price target up to the highest level, increasing its target on Red Hat to $80 from $74. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Red Hat rose $6.98, or 11.4%, to $68.48 on nearly three times its average daily trading volume. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a fresh 52-week high of $70.13. Including today's advance, the shares have gained approximately 40% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the software and cloud space include Oracle (ORCL), LogMeIn (LOGM) VMware (VMW), and Microsoft (MSFT).

ONO PHARMACEUTICAL and Gilead Sciences announced that the companies have entered into an exclusive license agreement for the development and commercialization of ONO-4059, ONO’s oral Bruton’s tyrosine kinase, or BTK, inhibitor for the treatment of B-cell malignancies and other diseases. Under the terms of the agreement, Gilead will pay ONO an upfront payment plus additional payments based upon achievement of certain development, regulatory and commercial milestones.

10:20 EDTGOOGYahoo rises, Google falls after BofA changes ratings on both
Shares of Yahoo (YHOO) are rising and Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) stock is falling after Bank of America Merrill Lynch upgraded Yahoo and downgraded Google. WHAT'S NEW: Bank of America analyst Justin Post upgraded his rating on Yahoo to Buy from Neutral. Post said he had previously not expected to obtain information about Yahoo's strategy for avoiding taxes on the sale of its stake in Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA) at least until well into 2015. However, Yahoo's CFO recently stated that the company continued to be optimistic that it would be able to cut its tax bill and added that the company would divulge its plans for doing so during its next earnings conference call. Yahoo's next earnings conference call is expected to take place by the end of next month, Post noted. He set a $62 price target on Yahoo shares. Meanwhile, Post downgraded Google to Neutral from Buy. The analyst thinks the company is facing several headwinds, including the maturity of its search business, a lack of products that can provide catalysts, and margin pressures as it invests in competitive businesses. As a result of these headwinds, Google's results are likely to be below expectations, Post believes. Meanwhile, the company is also facing increased regulatory risk, particularly in the EU, and increased competition from Facebook (FB) and other social networks. He trimmed his price target on Google to $580 from $600. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Yahoo climbed 1% to $50.94, while Google class A shares declined 1.5% to $534.33.

As previously reported, BofA/Merrill downgraded Google to Neutral from Buy. The firm lowered estimates slightly below the Street due to lack of product catalysts, search maturity, and margin pressure from investments. BofA/Merrill is also cautious on online advertising growth given increased regulatory risk in the EU, potential Facebook (FB) competition, share loss from social growth, and a strong Apple (AAPL) product cycle. Price target lowered to $580 from $600.
07:37 EDTGILDGilead price target raised to $121 from $110 at JPMorgan
JPMorgan raised its price target for Gilead shares to $121 saying the company's potential cash flow generation is "immense" and provides "significant strategic flexibility." The firm estimates Gilead can generate more than $30B in cash in the next two years and $80B-plus over the next five years. It keeps an Overweight rating on the stock.
