Accenture, SAP collaborate on asset management solution for utilities industry

Accenture (ACN) announced a collaboration with SAP (SAP) to develop "predictive analytics solutions for asset management in the utilities industry to enable condition-based maintenance." The companies added that SAP's Predictive Maintenance and Service solution "is planned to be extended to better manage risks by improving equipment uptime in transmission and distribution, as well as maintenance and equipment-replacement planning." The news comes after both companies announced in January a comprehensive collaboration on core development and go-to-market for SAP S/4HANA. CenterPoint Energy (CNP) is collaborating with both companies to implement next-generation asset analytics solutions to complement its ongoing work in the area, the companies noted.

Outperform
Accenture initiated with an Outperform at Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Moshe Katri initiated Accenture with an Outperform and named it a Top Pick in IT Services with a $125 price target. The analyst expects Accenture to continue to benefit from recent SMAC investment as well as from its aggressive global delivery model which will likely provide incremental growth and scale. Katri recommends owning the stock post Q4 earnings on September 29, which he expects cautious guidance commentary but notes management has a long, consistent track record of returning cash to shareholders.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. SAP (SAP) downgraded to Underperform from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Milan Radia saying the company's "journey from licence centricity to subscription will remain prone to shorter-term growth rate inconsistencies." 2. Vodafone (VOD) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Macquarie with the firm saying the company faces structural challenges and either needs to pursue Mergers & Acquisitions or continually spend more on networks given competition from incumbents and challengers. 3. Waste Connections (WCN) downgraded to Hold from Buy at TD Securities with analyst Damir Gunja citing valuation and maintained a $78 price target on the stock. 4. Atwood Oceanics (ATW) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Johnson Rice with the firm saying recent liquidity catalysts are now largely reflective in shares, while out year contract coverage concerns remain and multiples currently stand at a solid premium to peer averages on our out-year forecast. 5. Baidu (BIDU) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Alicia Yap citing concerns about near-term revenue. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Acquisition of NetSuite helps Oracle boost cloud scale, says Raymond James
Raymond James analyst Michael Turits views Oracle's (ORCL) acquisition of NetSuite (N) as positive, saying it helps the former increase its cloud scale and scope at a reasonable valuation. The analyst believes that with this deal Oracle solidifies its lead in SaaS ERP relative to SAP (SAP), Workday (WDAY), and Microsoft (MSFT). Additionally, Turits points out that while he would have been positive on a more aggressive acquisition of salesforce.com (CRM) by Oracle, he believes this deal makes that "even less likely." He reiterates a $45 price target on Oracle's shares.

CenterPoint Energy weakness overdone, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Insoo Kim says that Centerpoint's (CNP) stock may have fallen Friday due to the company's weaker than expected results and its decision not to pursue a REIT structure. The analyst remains upbeat on the company's outlook in the absence of a REIT conversion. Kim continues to believe that Centerpoint's potential sale or spin of its Enable Midstream (ENBL) stake is a positive catalyst for it. Kim keeps a $26 price target and Outperform rating on the shares.
