14:05 EDTELOQ, AAPL, ICE, ORCL, NYXMarket set to end week little changed as cliff fears offset strong data
Once again stocks are poised to finish the week little changed, as concerns about the looming fiscal cliff canceled out stronger than expected economic data... MACRO NEWS: House Speaker John Boehner decided not to hold a vote on his deficit reduction bill, after it became clear that the measure wouldn't pass the House due to opposition by Democrats and conservative Republicans. As of Friday afternoon, no solution to the looming fiscal cliff was visible, and investors were becoming more pessimistic about the chances of avoiding the cliff... On the other hand, several important pieces of U.S. economic data from November were better than expected. Existing home sales, durable goods orders, housing permits and personal income all beat expectations. But not all the economic data was bullish, as an index of consumer confidence for December, housing starts for November, and last week's new jobless claims were all slightly weaker than expected... COMPANY NEWS: Another positive development this week was the heating up of the M&A market. Among the bigger deals were the merger between IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) and the NYSE Euronext (NYX) and the acquisition of software as a service marketing company Eloqua (ELOQ) by Oracle (ORCL)... Oracle also reported results, and its second quarter EPS and revenue both came in above analysts' consensus estimates... A federal judge denied a request by Apple (AAPL) to ban the sales of a number of Samsung's smartphones.

14:47 EDTORCLAnalysts debate Workday after post-earnings selloff
Last night's results and guidance from Workday (WDAY) prompted a selloff in the stock a several cautious notes from research firms. However, multiple analysts remain bullish on the company and see strong prospects hidden behind the "relatively conservative" guidance. WHAT'S NEW: After the market close on Tuesday, Workday reported first quarter losses per share of (2c) on revenues of $251M, both of which beat consensus estimates. However, the company's second quarter revenue guidance of $270M-$274M bracketed the consensus forecast of about $272M. ANALYST REACTIONS: Brean Capital's Sarah Hindlian noted that traders were likely disappointed by the lack of major client announcements for Workday's FMS product, but said she believes FMS will be successful in the long term. Hindlian added that she expects Workday to become a "clear winner" eventually, but warned of a significant correction in the stock and noted that "significant" R&D spending is required before the company can capture the full market and she reiterates a Hold rating on the stock. Jefferies' John DiFucci and Brad Zelnick were less hopeful, saying the company's 31% billings growth versus 69% last year reflects "very aggressive" competition from Oracle (ORCL) and SAP (SAP), which could signal lessened momentum for Workday. The firm believes renewals may be a bright spot for the company going forward, but kept a Hold rating on the stock and cut its price target to $92 from $99 on the shares. Wells Fargo's Jason Maynard said the company's "relatively conservative" guidance is likely due to some lag in large deal signings as well as a relatively slow acceleration in Europe. The firm lowered its price target to $105-$110 from $110-$120, but remained optimistic on Workday, citing "extremely strong" renewals, new client wins in human capital management, and a maturing financial product. Richard Davis and David Hynes from Canaccord lowered Workday's price target to $100 from $110, but nevertheless said they believe the company faces a "decade of growth." The firm was not surprised at the recent selloff and recommended using weakness in the stock price to fill out investment positions in Workday. PRICE ACTION: Workday is down over 10% to about $83 per share in afternoon trading. Oracle and SAP are up roughly 1.8% and 1%, respectively.
