09:14 EDTCRM, MSFTBrean says take profits in Salesforce after takeover report
Brean Capital analyst Sarah Hindlian recommends taking profits in Salesforce after the stock rallied 12% yesterday. Hindlian views a sale of Salesforce as "highly unlikely." She notes Brean's work indicates such a deal would be unlikely on both price and valuation as the company's Founder and CEO Marc Benioff would be unwilling to sell without a “substantial” premium. The analyst also questions if Salesforce has any interest in selling itself. Further, she believes a takeover by either Oracle (ORCL) or Microsoft (MSFT) would raise regulatory issues. Hindlian keeps a Hold rating on Salesforce.
09:09 EDTCRMOracle 'highly unlikely' to be company that approached Salesforce, CNBC says

Faber added that "nothing should be read into" Oracle's recent bond offering in relation to the recent report that Salesforce has hired bankers after receiving takeover interest.

06:51 EDTMSFT, CRMPiper sees Salesforce takeover price upwards of $100/share
Piper Jaffray followed JPMorgan in predicting a Salesforce takeover price upwards of $100 per share. Piper calls Salesforce a "very attractive and unique asset," but admits it has no proprietary information about a potential deal. Oracle (ORCL), Microsoft (MSFT), IBM (IBM) and the large Internet centric vendors are the only tech companies likely to afford Salesforce, Piper believes. It points out that while Oracle denied it made an offer, the $10B in debt raised earlier this week by the company is likely to keep it near the top of the potential acquirer list. Piper says Salesforce potentially being in play raises the potential for any pure cloud vendor to be taken over, including Workday (WDAY) and ServiceNow (NOW), as well as "host of smaller pure cloud vendors and fast-growing non-cloud companies" such as Splunk (SPLK). The firm keeps an Overweight rating on Salesforce with an $80 price target.

06:31 EDTMSFT, CRMMicrosoft would likely sell off on Salesforce acquisition, says Citigroup
Citigroup believes that should Salesforce (CRM) be up for sale as Bloomberg yesterday suggested, Microsoft (MSFT) could be the most likely the suitor. Citi thinks Microsoft shares would likely trade lower should such a deal occur, as it would signal the company is in a "more tenuous position in commercial business than investors currently think." The firm lists Oracle (ORCL), IBM (IBM) and Google (GOOG) as other potential suitors for Salesforce. With less upside now to its Saleforce price target, Citi prefers Check Point (CHKP) and VMware (VMW) for growth investors and ServiceNow (NOW) for exposure to software-as-a-service. It keeps a Buy rating on Salesforce with am unchanged price target of $78.
06:10 EDTMSFT, CRMJefferies sees 'very low' probability of Salesforce takeover
Jefferies views the 12% rally in Salesforce (CRM) shares yesterday after Bloomberg reported the company is fielding takeover offers as an overreaction. The firm says the probability of a sale is "very low, especially with the stock already trading at an inflated valuation." It views Microsoft (MSFT) as the most likely suitor, with Oracle (ORCL), IBM (IBM) and Google (GOOG) potentially in the mix. Jefferies keeps an Underperform rating on Salesforce with a $49 price target. The stock closed yesterday up $7.76 to $74.65.

17:16 EDTMSFT, CRMSalesforce could be worth $100/share in a takeover, says JPMorgan
After Bloomberg reported this afternoon that Salesforce has hired bankers to field takeover inquiries, JPMorgan analyst Mark Murphy told investors that he believes the stock could be worth $100 in a buyout. Shares closed the trading day up $7.76 to $74.65. A deal would be the largest in software history, and only a short list of companies could pull it off, Murphy wrote. Those companies are Microsoft (MSFT), Oracle (ORCL), IBM (IBM) and SAP (SAP), he believes. After pointing out JPMorgan has "no conclusive evidence to confirm or dispel the speculation," Murphy noted Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff was sitting in the front row of the Microsoft Build Conference this morning and that Oracle just raised $10B of debt. The analyst calls Salesforce a "rare asset" and the "pioneering leader of the cloud computing." He has an Overweight rating on the shares.
16:57 EDTCRMOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Wednesday
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in negative territory and remained there throughout the day. The market struggled from the outset following disappointing data that showed GDP growth was anemic in the first three months of this year. The market moved in a narrow range in the early part of the session as investors waited for the results of the FOMC meeting. The initial reaction to the FOMC rate and policy statement was a bit of buying, which brought the averages within striking distance of the flat line. There was little in the way of momentum, however, and the sellers regained control into the close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., GDP growth was reported to have slowed to a 0.2% rate in Q1, which was much weaker than the 1% annualized growth rate that was expected. The pending home sales index rose 1.1% to 108.6 in March, which was a tick better than forecast. As expected, the Federal Reserve announced that it would keep the target range for the federal funds rate at 0%-0.25%. The Fed said that it anticipates raising the target range when the labor market has improved further and it is reasonably confident that inflation will increase to 2% over the medium term. The central bank reiterated that it anticipates that economic conditions may warrant keeping the interest rate below normal levels for some time, even after employment and inflation reach its goals. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Salesforce.com (CRM) jumped $7.76, or 11.6%, to $74.65 after Bloomberg said the company has hired financial advisers to field takeover offers after the company was approached by a potential acquirer... Starwood Hotels (HOT) climbed $6.73, or 8.33%, to $87.53 after the company announced that it would explore "a full range" of strategic and financial alternatives to increase shareholder value. Starwood also reported first quarter earnings per share from continuing operations, excluding certain items, that topped consensus this morning. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was GoPro (GPRO), which rallied $5.94, or 12.63%, to $52.96 after the action camera maker's first quarter results and second quarter outlook widely topped analysts’ consensus estimates. Also higher was XPO Logistics (XPO), which jumped $6.38, or 15.03%, to $48.83 after agreeing to acquire Norbert Dentressangle, a provider of contract logistics. Among the noteworthy losers was Stratasys (SSYS), which fell $11.37, or 22.16%, to $39.93 after the 3D printer maker reported preliminary earnings below analyst expectations and cut its fiscal year guidance. Also lower were shares of Lumber Liquidators (LL), which dropped $6.66, or 19.93%, to $26.76 after the company reported earnings, said that its CFO has left and disclosed that the DOJ indicated that it is seeking criminal charges under the Lacey Act. INDEXES: The Dow fell 74.61, or 0.41%, to 18,035.53, the Nasdaq lost 31.78, or 0.63%, to 5,023.64, and the S&P 500 declined 7.91, or 0.37%, to 2,106.85.

07:33 EDTMSFTNomura's Shurland upgrades Microsoft to Buy citing expected 2016 acceleration
Nomura's Richard Shurland upgraded Microsoft to Buy from Neutral with a $50 price target. Shurland said Microsoft's Q3 results reflected difficult comps and core business weakness due to the transition to cloud, but results were better than guidance. The analyst said there is emerging evidence that Azure has turned positive on gross margins and Office 365 margins have expanded sharply. Shurland believes Microsoft will begin to show low single digit revenue growth in 2016, with about 10% EPS growth from share repurchase leverage and with a 2.9% dividend yield. He also said he views valuation as reasonable.
