Twitter acquisition would hurt Salesforce, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Keith Bachman says that an acquisition of Twitter (TWTR) by Salesforce (CRM) would " offer little strategic fit, would slow revenue growth and would be dilutive to (free cash flow) margins." Bachman thinks that the deal would cause Salesforce's stock to drop significantly,. and he says that the company's stock would be worth $65 if it pulls the trigger on Twitter. The analyst says that Salesforce's current valuation is attractive if it does not buy Twitter. He keeps an $86 price target and Outperform rating on Salesforce.

Piper sees 'clouds parting' on Salesforce valuation
Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff mostly calmed nerves over a potential Twitter (TWTR) acquisition by saying at the company's analyst day, "While we look at everything, we pass on almost everything," Piper Jaffray analyst Alex Zukin tells investors in a research note. The comment does not completely take a deal for Twitter off the table, but the probability of a transformational acquisition is now "dramatically lower," Zukin contends. As such, the analyst feels the "clouds are parting" on Salesforce's valuation "with sunshine ahead." Zukin believes the company has a "clear line of sight" to $10B in revenue in FY17. He keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $100 price target. Salesforce closed yesterday up $2.84, or 4%, to $71.26.

Salesforce worthy of investor consideration at current levels, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Richard Davis came away from the Salesforce (CRM) Dreamforce week more enthused about the company's outlook. The analyst noted the company is growing its revenues 3.5 times faster than it legacy peers. Davis noted the company's CEO said they are very disciplined on price when it comes to acquisitions and believes that they would not be interested in Twitter (TWTR) at its rumored asking price of $28 per share. Davis reiterated his Buy rating and $95 price target on Salesforce shares.

JPMorgan sees 'opportune entry point' for Salesforce
JPMorgan analyst Mark Murphy believes shares of Salesforce (CRM) are at an "'opportune entry point" following the recent selloff. The pullback has been driven by a "slightly soft" Q2 and concerns about a potentially expensive acquisition of Twitter (TWTR), Murphy tells investors in a research note. After speaking to industry contacts at Dreamforce, the analyst sees a path for the "overhangs to fade" with a "better pace of business in Q3/Q4" as well as the eventual fading of the Twitter discussion. Murphy reiterates an Overweight rating on Salesforce with a $95 price target in a research note titled "The Most Valuable Cloud Asset Is Undeservedly Undervalued."

Twitter upgraded to Hold from Sell at Evercore ISI
Evercore ISI analyst Ken Sena upgraded Twitter (TWTR) to Neutral citing the recent pullback in the shares. The analyst notes that the selloff "from a stalled sale process" has put the stock more in-line with his unchanged price target of $17. Sena thinks Twitter's guidance for Q3 "may prove sufficiently conservative."

Twitter guidance could meet, exceed estimates, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Sandler says that for the first time in a year, Twitter's guidance could meet or exceed consensus expectations. The analyst sees a good risk/reward profile for shares into the company's Q3 results. He notes that his channel checks point to a "high-end of the range" revenue with "slightly up" monthly active users for Q3. Twitter's NFL live video project "has been by all accounts a smashing success," Sandler tells investors in a research note. He keep a Buy rating on Twitter with a $22 price target.
