Microsoft could rise 20% in a year, Barron's says

Microsoft has been shifting its decades-old products to the cloud and has shown it can transform itself without injuring its profit margins, Bill Alpert writes in this week's edition of Barron's. Additionally, the company has a "vibrant" computer-game franchise, he notes, adding that the company's shares could rise 20% or more in a year.Reference Link

Outperform
Microsoft new accounting standards to have little impact, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Michael Nemeroff notes that Microsoft recently hosted a conference call to discuss its new reporting standards to reflect ASC 606 and ASC 842, which will be in effect starting with Q1 results. The analyst estimates little to no impact to his 2018 and 2019 estimates given this accounting update. However, there is higher volatility in quarterly revenue with different seasonality patterns throughout the year versus the prior standard, he adds. Nemeroff reiterates an Outperform rating and $84 price target on the shares.

Hold
MicroStrategy downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Karl Keirstead downgraded MicroStrategy (MSTR) to Hold and cut his price target for the shares to $180 from $220 citing the "disappointing" Q2 results as well as the company's strategy shift. Last night's results marked the third consecutive quarter of license revenue declines, Keirstead tells investors in post-earnings research note. MicroStrategy is now pivoting to a "much more aggressive" spending strategy in response to competition from Tableau (DATA) and Microsoft (MSFT), the analyst adds. He believes the stock has more downside risk.

Strong Buy
Microsoft price target raised to $84 from $77 at Raymond James
Raymond James analyst Michael Turits raised Microsoft's price target to $84 and reiterated his Strong Buy rating following the across-the-board Q4 beat on strong commercial bookings and cloud results. The analyst trimmed FY18 and FY19 earnings on the down margin guidance and higher taxes but expects margin expansion in FY19 as cloud margins continue to rise.

Microsoft should be bought on any weakness, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Brad Reback says that Microsoft reported "strong" Q4 results, as he noted that the growth of its cloud business, Azure, accelerated to 98% year-over-year, while its commercial bookings surged 30% year-over-year. He expects the company's operating profit and free cash flow to accelerate in coming quarters and raised his price target to $80 from $73 while keeping a Buy rating. .
