Russian organizations acquire Microsoft software despite sanctions, Reuters says

Microsoft software has been acquired by state organizations and firms in Russia and Crimea amid sanctions banning U.S. companies from transactions with the regions, Reuters reports, citing official documents. The products were sold through third parties and some users provided with false information about their identities to Microsoft, which said, "Microsoft has a strong commitment to complying with legal requirements and we have been looking into this matter in recent weeks. We have robust trade compliance processes around the world to help ensure that our partners comply with all conditions including immediate halting of suspected improper sales by partners, and strong measures to try to prevent banned customers from accessing and using our products and services."

Oracle shares can reach $80, says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Kash Rangan estimates that Oracle's (ORCL) EPS can reach $4-$5 in fiscal 2022, as Rangan believes that the company can meet its goal of generating $20B in revenue from its cloud businesses. Moreover, Rangan believes that the company's P/E multiple can reach 21 times, in-line with Microsoft's (MSFT) multiple, enabling Oracle's stock to reach $80 per share . The analyst keeps a $62 price target and a Buy rating on Oracle.

Microsoft upgraded to Buy from Hold at Canaccord
Canaccord Genuity analyst Richard Davis upgraded Microsoft to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $86 from $76. The software giant closed yesterday up 43c to $74.69. Investors are underestimating the "virtuous cycles" of Microsoft's four "compelling" growth drivers, namely Office Productivity, Gaming, Marketing, and Azure's Platform as a Service, Davis tells investors in a research note. Growth in these units position Microsoft for a sustained period of accelerating growth, which should preserve the current valuation and "perhaps even drive a bit of multiple expansion," the analyst adds. He sees the stock continuing to drive higher.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Microsoft (MSFT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Canaccord with analyst Richard Davis saying investors are underestimating the "virtuous cycles" of Microsoft's four "compelling" growth drivers, namely Office Productivity, Gaming, Marketing, and Azure's Platform as a Service. 2. Biogen (BIIB) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Matthew Harrison saying the base business is underappreciated and Ocrevus share loss is slower than expected. 3. Sherwin-Williams (SHW) upgraded to Buy from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Steve Byrne saying the company announced a 3%-5% price increase on Tuesday and detailed plans to expand PF EBITDA margin to 19%-21% in 2020 from 17% in 2016. 4. BB&T (BBT) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Stephens with analyst Terry McEvoy noting that it has been the worst performing Super Regional bank in 2017 and he recommends taking advantage of that underperformance as he expects it to produce among the highest returns in the group going forward. 5. Celsion (CLSN) upgraded on improved financial outlook at Maxim with analyst Jason McCarthy saying the changes to the company's agreement with warrant holders, enabling the warrants to be exercised immediately following a rally in the stock, have removed the financial overhang on the company.
