06:51 EDTNOWPiper 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 EDTNOWMicrosoft 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.
