11:14 EDTHPMicrosoft sinks after outlook brings multiple downgrades
Shares of Microsoft (MSFT) are falling after the company last night issued guidance for its quarter ending in March that came in significantly below analysts' expectations. JPMorgan, Citigroup, MKM Partners and Nomura responded to the company's results by downgrading the stock. BACKGROUND: Microsoft's revenue guidance for its March quarter missed expectations, driven by U.S. dollar strength, and continued weakness in China, Russia and Japan, according to JPMorgan analyst Mark Murphy. The company's second quarter results were roughly in-line with expectations, but its software sales came in below the consensus outlook, as customers shifted to cheaper Web-based products. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors, JPMorgan's Murphy downgraded the stock to Neutral for Overweight. Microsoft plans to spend more money than anticipated going forward, according to the analyst, who consequently cut his fiscal 2015 earnings per share forecast for the company by 8%. The reduced profit outlook could delay the stock's move above $50, warned Murphy, who reduced his price target on the name to $47 from $53. But the analyst did note that the tech giantís commercial cloud revenue growth jumped 114% year-over-year last quarter, a higher growth rate than during the same period a year earlier. Citigroup cut its rating on Microsoft to Sell from Neutral, saying that the company's earnings headwinds are becoming clearer. The firm set a $38 price target on the stock. Both Nomura and MKM Partners cut its ratings on the name to Neutral from Buy. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Microsoft fell 9.55 to $42.50. Other companies
