Microsoft announces Azure, Office 365 Government Cloud expansion

In a blog post, Microsoft announced "significant advancements" for its Government Cloud. The company launched Department of Defense-specific Office 365 and Azure, saying that by the end of 2016, physically isolated versions of Azure Government and Office 365 US Government Defense specifically for the Department of Defense will be available in two new dedicated regions. These regions will also connect to Department of Defense networks via Microsoft Express Route. The company also launched DoD Information Impact Level 5, noting that such versions of Office 365 and Azure are built from the ground up to meet DoD Impact Level 5 controls. DoD agencies and companies managing controlled information will be able to use this platform for Department of Defense National Security System data. Microsoft is on track to achieve a DoD Impact Level 5 Provisional Authorization for both Office 365 and Azure. Microsoft also announced its intent to expand Azure Government from new regions in Arizona and Texas. Slated to be generally available in 2017, the new regions will add to the company's existing regions in Virginia and Iowa and are new additions beyond the Department of Defense regions mentioned above. Now, Microsoft has a total of six dedicated regions for government customers - significantly more than any other cloud provider. Combined with dedicated Government ExpressRoute options, Microsoft offers government agencies broad choice of where they host their data and where they connect directly to Microsoft's infrastructure.

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.
