Microsoft has multiple EPS catalysts including LinkedIn, says Morgan Stanley

Morgan Stanley analyst Keith Weiss says that "top line acceleration, gross margin stabilization, op margin expansion, and aggressive share repurchases" will boost Micrsoft's EPS growth, and he conservatively estimates that LinkedIn will raise the company's EPS by another 2% in fiscal 2019. The analyst expects the gross margins from the company's cloud business to rise, and he predicts that the stock's multiple will rise to 20 times from 18 times as its cloud business expands. Weiss predicts that the stock will return a total of about 15% through fiscal 2019 and he raised his price target on the shares to $72 from $64 while keeping an Overweight rating.

Microsoft price target raised to $75 from $70 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Karl Keirstead raised his price target for Microsoft to $75 citing increased confidence the company's cloud transition after meeting with management. The tone from management "sounded pretty solid: while the color on Azure was positive, Keirstead tells investors in a research note. The shares are no longer cheap and could take a breather in the mid-$60's, but Microsoft is still not a consensus long, the analyst contends. He keeps a Buy rating on the shares. Oppenheimer this morning raised its price target for Microsoft shares to $70.

Accenture delivered first 'smart supermarket' before Amazon, says Susquehanna
Susquehanna analyst James Friedman said Amazon (AMZN), in its "usual disruptive fashion," has stolen headlines with its "Amazon Go" prototype "smart supermarket." However, he noted that Accenture (ACN), in partnership with Microsoft (MSFT), introduced a similar smart market concept with Italy's largest supermarket chain, Coop Italia, in 2015. Friedman, who thinks Accenture can teach others to follow in this trend and that its retail work can add potential incremental growth to its Products Operating Group revenue in 2017, raised his price target on Accenture shares to $144 from $130 and keeps a Positive rating on the stock.

Microsoft price target raised to $70 on cloud tailwinds at UBS
UBS analyst Brent Thill said his meetings at Microsoft HQ with several members of senior leadership left him with the takeaway that the company is innovating on top of a strong foundation and is seeing clients move added workloads to the cloud. The tech titan's early transition to the cloud is paying off with better revenue visibility and opportunities for significant margin expansion, Thill tells investors. The analyst, who continues to advocate evaluating Microsoft shares on a cash flow, rather than earnings, basis, keeps a Buy rating and raised his price target on the stock to $70 from $66.

Microsoft initiated with an Overweight at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Alex Zukin initiated Microsoft with an Overweight and an $80 price target saying that is in the "driver's seat" of a generational shift to Cloud Computing. Zukin expects Microsoft to become once again strategic for large enterprises and the shift will drive accelerated revenue growth with a mix shift towards higher margin cloud offerings that will double gross profit growth in FY18 and FY19, when combined with LinkedIn, could result in FY19 earnings of $4 per share.
