Workday jumps as William Blair reveals mega retailer deal

Shares of Workday (WDAY) are on the rise after William Blair analyst Justin Furby told investors that he learned from some of its partners that the company has recently signed a mega retailer, with over two million employees. While the analyst did not name the retailer, Walmart (WMT) may be the only public company to fit the description. MEGA RETAILER DEAL: In a research note to investors this morning, William Blair's Furby said he spoke with a few Workday partners this week and learned that the company recently signed a human resources deal with "one of the world's largest employers," with more than two million employees globally. The contract represents "by far" the largest company Workday has ever signed, more than five times larger than any of its existing HR customers, the analyst contended. Furthermore, Furby noted that the company competed against incumbent SAP (SAP) and said the retailer should pursue a phased deployment of Workday over the next three to four years. The analyst told investors that he believes a deal of this size could represent $30M or more of annual subscription revenue. Additionally, Furby pointed out that he learned of a 70,000-plus employee real estate firm and a 50,000-plus employee pharmaceutical firm that recently closed with Workday, as well as "several large enterprise opportunities" in its pipeline that could close in the coming weeks. He also picked up "relatively constructive commentary" on the emerging Student Information Systems market, though one partner flagged the public sector vertical as being "soft." New business trends sound "more encouraging" than management's tone on its third quarter earnings, the analyst noted, adding that Workday's stock remains one of his favorite ideas this year and over the longer term. Furby recommended using current levels as a long-term buying opportunity and reiterated an Outperform rating on the shares. EMPLOYER IN QUESTION: In the note to investors, Furby did not name the company with which Workday is said to have signed the contract, beyond calling it "one of the world's largest employers" and a "retailer employing over two million people globally." According to the latest "Fortune Global 500" list, Walmart was the world's largest employer, with about 2.3M employees, and was the only member of Fortune's list of private companies with over two million employees. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, shares of Workday have gained almost 7% to $79.52.

Blair uncovers Workday deal with one of world's largest employers
William Blair analyst Justin Furby says he learned from Workday (WDAY) partners that the company recently signed a human resources deal with one of the world's largest employers. The contract, with a retailer employing over 2M people globally, represents the largest company Workday has ever signed "by far," Furby tells investors in a research note. The client is more than five times larger on a headcount basis than any of Workday's existing HR customers, the analyst adds. The company competed against incumbent SAP (SAP), and the retailer will pursue a phased deployment over the next three to four years, Furbry says. He believes a deal of this size could represent $30M or more of annual subscription revenue. Furby also learned of a 70,000-plus employee real estate firm and a 50,000-plus employee pharmaceutical firm that recently closed with Workday, as well as "several large enterprise opportunities" in pipeline that could close in the coming weeks. Workday shares remain one of the analyst's favorite ideas this year and over the longer term, and he recommends using current levels as a long-term buying opportunity. Furby has an Outperform rating on Workday, which is up 72c to $75.07 in pre-market trading.

Wedbush more positive on 2017 software spending trends
Wedbush analyst Steve Koenig says his firm's 2017 IT Spending Survey should soothe fears that macro uncertainty caused by the U.S. presidential election will negatively impact IT budgets. The analyst thinks recent disappointments from Workday (WDAY), Oracle (ORCL), Red Hat (RHT), and other software vendors were more company-specific than the management teams were willing to admit. As a result of the survey, Koenig has a more positive view of 2017 software spending trends, and thinks beneficiaries will include well-positioned cybersecurity vendors and cloud vendors. He notes that Proofpoint (PFPT) is a Wedbush Best Idea and his top software pick for 2017 along with salesforce.com (CRM).

Traditional chains fighting back as Amazon remains leader, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Brian Nagel says that during the Holiday season his firm ordered one item from eight Hardlines/Broadlines retailers and performed an informal test to see how the shopping experience compared to Amazon (AMZN). While the analyst notes that the e-commerce giant remains the leader online, he says traditional chains are fighting back with sharper pricing and improvements to fulfillment and return capabilities. Among traditional chains, Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY), Costco (COST), and Wal-Mart (WMT) performed best on pricing, while Best Buy (BBY) scored as the best in fulfillment, Nagel says.

Dollar Tree price target raised to $100 from $90 at UBS
UBS analyst Michael Lasser raised his price target on Dollar Tree (DLTR) to $100 from $90 following Q3 results. The analyst said the company's results eased a number of fears and demonstrated it could hold its own against competitors such as Wal-Mart (WMT). Dollar Tree exhibited comp growth, and its merger with Family dollar is providing synergies within its guidance, said Lasser, who reiterated his Buy rating on the shares.

Wal-Mart could be hurt by border adjustment legislation, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc believes that Wal-Mart could be hurt by border adjustment legislation being considered by House Republicans. According to the firm, "the border adjustment taxes an item that is imported from a foreign country and rebates it when it is exported outside of the country." Wal-Mart could be significantly hurt by such legislation because it has "more limited ability to pass along higher costs," KeyBanc stated. The firm keeps a $90 price target and an Overweight rating on Wal-Mart.

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.
