BMO says Salesforce's positive messages overshadowed by Twitter speculation

BMO Capital analyst Keith Bachman said the positive themes laid out by Salesforce (CRM) management at the company's Dreamforce event, such as guidance to reach $10B in FY18 revenues without inorganic sources of revenue, would traditionally help the stock. However, news reports, including the most recent from the Wall Street Journal, indicating that the company may buy Twitter (TWTR), will outweigh the "positive messages" of the event. If Salesforce were to buy Twitter, the stock would move meaningfully lower, Bachman predicted, but he also wonders if strategic buyers would then potentially consider buying Salesforce. The firm keeps its Outperform rating on Salesforce shares.

Twitter worries obscuring positive trends for Salesforce, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Steve Koenig said his industry and partner checks don't point to any secular headwinds for Salesforce's (CRM) business, adding that the company gave several reassuring metrics on its progress in cross-selling, growing deal sizes, and expanding its large account base at its investor day event at the Dreamforce conference. At the investor day, management acknowledged conjecture about Salesforce trying to buy Twitter (TWTR), but deflected comments, with CFO Mark Hawkins suggesting that CEO Marc Benioff's Q&A session Wednesday afternoon may be a better forum for soliciting comments, noted Koenig. The analyst, who remains constructive on Salesforce as long as the company doesn't buy Twitter, keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

Salesforce acquisition of Twitter 'quite low,' says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Kash Rangan said the probability of Salesforce (CRM) acquiring Twitter (TWTR) is "quite low." The analyst does not believe Salesforce would materially dilute its shareholders with such a risky deal and expects the CEO to provide clarity on the thought process behind core software acquisitions versus media at today's Q&A session. Rangan rates Salesforce a Buy with a $100 price target on shares.

Upside potential for Twitter takeout already captured, says Susquehanna
Susquehanna analyst Shyam Patil analyzed the potential takeout range for a Twitter buyout and believes most of the potential upside has already been captured. He sees the takeout range in the $17-$24 range and with the stock trading at $24, sees little upside. Patil recommends selling Twitter before market share losses to Snap play out as its fundamentals have deteriorated significantly since going public. Patil reiterated his Neutral rating and $15 price target on Twitter shares.
