11:01 EDTAMZNMicrosoft rises after analyst gets more bullish on cloud prospects
Research firm Raymond James upgraded Microsoft (MSFT) two notches to Strong Buy from Hold, predicting that the tech giant will become one of the few large scale cloud vendors that can succeed across the industry's three main segments. WHAT'S NEW: Microsoft will emerge alongside Amazon (AMZN) and Google (GOOG, GOOGL) as part of a small group of "hyperscale" cloud vendors that can combine Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service and Software-as-a-Service, predicted Raymond James analyst Michael Turits. Furthermore, Microsoft's decision to make its cloud business open to other platforms should boost its growth, Turits believes. Forecasting that Microsoft's cloud revenue will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 6% between fiscal 2016 and fiscal 2018, the analyst estimated that the company's overall profit growth would accelerate to at least 8% over the long-term. Moreover, the growth of Microsoft's Office business appears to be accelerating ,despite competition from Google, said Turits, who set a $62 price target on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Recent initiatives by Google involving its cloud business could significantly boost its stock price and signify the start of a "cold war" in the space, but are unlikely to negatively affect Microsoft, Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Sandler wrote on November 20. Although Google's push in the cloud is negative for Microsoft, it will take years for Google to build up its cloud business to the point where it's competitive with Microsoft's Azure offering, Sandler contended in his previous note to investors. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Microsoft gained nearly 1% to $54.50.

07:56 EDTAMZNMicrosoft upgraded to Strong Buy on Cloud strength at Raymond James
As previously reported, Raymond James analyst Michael Turits upgraded Microsoft (MSFT) two notches to Strong Buy from Market Perform, saying he views it as one of the only "hyperscale" hybrid cloud vendors with the ability to integrate Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service and Software-as-a-Service. Turits also noted that despite the challenge from Google Apps (GOOG), Office appears to be accelerating several years into the transition to cloud and he believes 365 offers enough cross platform value to keep consumers loyal. The analyst set a $62 price target on Microsoft, which he sees as joining Google and Amazon (AMZN) as the only "hyperscale" cloud vendors across IaaS, PaaS and SaaS.

16:17 EDTAMZNAmazon showcases 'Prime Air' drone delivery system
Amazon has launched a website showcasing its "Prime Air" drone delivery system, offering a number of images of the drones as well as a video presented by Jeremy Clarkson of "Top Gear" fame. The footage displays a drone using "sense and avoid" technology to scan the backyard of an Amazon customer as it looks for a suitable landing area before dropping off a package. "In time, there'll be a whole family of Amazon drones -- different designs for different environments," noted Clarkson, while Amazon itself commented, "We're excited about Prime Air, a future delivery system from Amazon designed to safely get packages to customers in 30 minutes or less... Putting Prime Air into service will take some time, but we will deploy when we have the regulatory support needed to realize our vision." The company explained further that the drones operate below 400 feet and employ a "high degree of automation" to fly to distances of 10 miles or more. "Safety is our top priority. Our vehicles will be built with multiple redundancies, as well as sophisticated 'sense and avoid' technology. We will not launch Prime Air until we are able to demonstrate safe operations," said Amazon, adding, "We have more than a dozen prototypes that we've developed in our research and development labs... in the United States, the United Kingdom and Israel."
