Salesforce walked away from Twitter partially due to trolls, CNBC's Cramer says

Salesforce (CRM) CEO Marc Benioff killed all rumors of a potential Twitter (TWTR) bid last week when he said that the company is "not the right fit." Benioff said that Twitter's price and work culture were among factors contributing to his decision to walk away, but according to CNBC's "Mad Money" host Jim Cramer, Benioff was also turned off by trolls. Cramer commented following a recent conversation with Benioff, "What's happened is, a lot of the bidders are looking at people with lots of followers and seeing the hatred. I know that the haters reduce the value of the company...I know that Salesforce was very concerned about this notion." Reference Link

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
