Microsoft upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman
Goldman Sachs analyst Heather Bellini upgraded Microsoft to Buy from Neutral and raised her price target for the shares to $68 from $60. The software giant closed yesterday up 78c to $59.65. Azure is the number two market share vendor in the cloud space, and has grown 100% or more year-over-year eight of the last 10 quarters, Bellini tells investors in a research note on the public cloud space. She believes Azure can continue to grow revenue and improve margins over time given Microsoft's large customer base and "strong" C-level relationships. The analyst sees upside potential to out-year earnings forecasts for the company.

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1.

Liberty Interactive (QVCA) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA Merrill Lynch with analyst Heather Balsky saying she has increased confidence in a return to positive US sales growth and expects multiple expansion as sales improve.

Public cloud infrastructure market will be $62B by 2020, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan says "the race is on" for public cloud providers to get as much of their customers' data on their respective cloud platforms as possible. The analyst believes Amazon (AMZN) Web Services, Microsoft (MSFT), and Alphabet's Google (GOOG; GOOGL) have ambitions to become the dominant OS of the cloud, and to do so these companies will aim to have integrated solutions from the infrastructure layer to services through first-party offerings and/or the development of a strong partner channel. He views AWS as the primary wholesale cloud platform and Microsoft as the enterprise platform. However, given the relative immaturity of the market and the massive $1T opportunity, all three have been successful focusing on multiple segments, Horan adds, noting that he expects the public cloud infrastructure market to be $62B by 2020.

Outperform
Amazon continues to attack large, emerging opportunities, says Oppenheimer
Commenting on the first day of Amazon's (AMZN) Amazon Web Services re:Invent conference, Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein notes that AWS targeted Oracle's (ORCL) database services and highlighted more artificial intelligence functionality in line with Google's (GOOG; GOOGL)/Microsoft (MSFT). The analyst says Amazon also touched on its partnership with VMware (VMW), which should help enterprise migration. Helfstein believes AWS continues to attack large/emerging opportunities while continuing to simplify/automate the development process. He reiterates an Outperform rating on Amazon's shares.
