Microsoft announces expanded partnership with SAP

Microsoft (MSFT) announced an expanded partnership with SAP (SAP) to provide public cloud services for the SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite. SAP will make its cloud-based human capital management solutions available on Microsoft Azure over the next five years. This is SAP's first move to supplement its own infrastructure and operate SAP SuccessFactors solutions in a third-party public cloud, recognizing the experience both companies have in supporting global enterprise clients.

Yelp takeout chances increased with share conversion, says Cantor
Yelp's (YELP) conversion of Class B super-voting shares into regular Class A shares late last week increases the company's takeout potential, Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali tells investors in a research note. Yelp, especially following recent improvements in the underlying growth fundamentals of the business, has become "an easier, and more likely" acquisition target, the analyst contends. The analyst views Facebook (FB), Priceline (PCLN), TripAdvisor (TRIP) and Microsoft (MSFT) as potential acquirers of Yelp. Squali estimates Yelp could be worth $53 per share in a takeout. He keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $42 price target. The stock is up 2% to $40.35 in early trading.

Microsoft, Amazon well positioned to enable cloud, AI trends, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan notes that machine learning and artificial intelligence have been use to improve applications and acceleration of infrastructure builds, with "intelligent software" designed to make lives easier and more productive. Further, the analyst sees communications and cloud services continuing to converge, with infrastructure and data as key components to AI. Microsoft (MSFT) and Amazon (AMZN) Web Service are well positioned to enable these trends, he contends, adding that he see colocation providers, such as Equinix (EQIX) and Interxion (INXN), and networking companies like Zayo Group (ZAYO) GTT Communications (GTT) as beneficiaries.

Wells doesn't see Apple as biggest beneficiary from Samsung issues
Wells Fargo analyst Maynard Um attributes the recent rally in shares of Apple (AAPL), at least in part, to Samsung's (SSNLF) issues with its Note 7 phones. Apple gained an incremental $14B in market capitalization at its intraday peak, which the analyst believes embeds more than 3M of incremental iPhone 7 Plus units. Samsung's production halt will help Apple, but other Android vendors with 5.7 inch phones could see a bigger benefit if Android users prefer to stick with Android, Um tells investors in a research note. He points out that LG, Kyocera, and Microsoft (MFST) have 5.7 inch Android phones at U.S. carriers. Um thinks expectations for Apple into earnings "have risen materially." He keeps a Market Perform rating on the iPhone maker. Apple closed yesterday up 25c to $116.30.

Microsoft expected to report a solid quarter, says Nomura
Nomura analyst Frederick Grieb expects Microsoft to report a solid Q1 driven by strong performance in Productivity and Business Process andIntelligent Cloud along with continued, single-digit declines in More Personal Computing results. The firm's reseller survey indicates Microsoft came in above plan for the quarter as resellers were positive on the Office 365 model transition. Grieb believes the transition to Office 365 is above plan, declines in the Windows business have likely moderated and the company should continue to outperform on operating expenses. The analyst rates Microsoft a Buy with a $65 price target.

SAP downgraded to Underperform on growth pressures at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Milan Radia downgraded SAP to Underperform saying the company's "journey from licence centricity to subscription will remain prone to shorter-term growth rate inconsistencies."

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.
