11:33 EDTWDAY, MCDWorkday rises after reportedly winning record deal with McDonald's
Shares of cloud-based human capital management solution provider Workday (WDAY) are rising after the company is said to have won a deal with global fast food giant McDonald's (MCD) that would be the biggest in its history. WHAT'S NEW: JMP Securities analysts Patrick Walravens and Peter Lowry wrote in a note to investors this morning that the firm's checks indicate that Workday was awarded the human capital management business at McDonald’s, which the analysts said could be the biggest deal in the company’s history. The firm increased its estimate for Workday's Q2 billings to $185M from $182M, noting that both are above the company's guidance of $180M in billing for Q2. JMP maintains its Market Outperform rating and $126 price target on Workday, but the analysts noted that they like the stock over the longer-term, citing its market leading position in the Software-as-a-Service Enterprise Resource Planning space, which is set to triple from 2013 to 2020. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, shares of Workday gained $2.43, or 2.9%, to $86.34.
