Microsoft new accounting standards changes revenue timing, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan says Microsoft's adoption of new accounting standards changes the timing and recognition of revenue but not the underlying mechanics when calculating guidance methodology. Sales practices, customer billing and business strategy remain unaffected by the new accounting standards, he adds. Horan reiterates an Outperform rating and $80 price target on the shares.

Audience extension could drive LinkedIn budget share higher, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Peter Stabler notes that Microsoft LinkedIn is now distributing Sponsored Content ads via third-party sites and apps and ad exchanges. His checks with marketing developers suggest LinkedIn maintains low-single-digit share of social marketing budgets. Beta testing suggests "significant lift" in impression and click volumes, and Stabler believes audience extension could drive LinkedIn's budget share higher.

Microsoft weakness on dividend disappointment a buying opportunity, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Brad Reback noted that he expected Microsoft to raise its dividend by 10%-15%, in-line with its average annual rate of increase over the past 10 years, not the 7.6% by which the company increased it. The dividend news paired with the fact that G. Mason Morfit of ValueAct is leaving the board may put the stock under modest pressure, but if so he would view the pullback as a buying opportunity, he tells investors. Reback keeps a Buy rating and $80 price target on Microsoft shares.
