Drexel Hamilton says buy Oracle dip as Information report seems like 'fake news'

Drexel Hamilton analyst Brian White believes that The Information's report claiming that Salesforce (CRM) and Amazon (AMZN) are moving away from using Oracle (ORCL) databases is inaccurate, he tells investors in a note entitled "AMZN and CRM to Dump Oracle? - Sounds Like Fake News to Us." The analyst, who said he would be a buyer of Oracle on weakness driven by the report, noted that there have been similar stories about Salesforce in the past that turned out to be false, as he believes is the case again here. He maintains a Buy rating and $62 price target on Oracle shares.

Oracle outlook rosier than perceived on recurring cloud revenue, says Argus
Argus analyst Joseph Bonner keeps his Buy rating and $61 price target on Oracle after the latest earnings report, saying that while investors focused on weaker Q3 guided cloud revenue growth, the company also disclosed expected $2B in booked cloud revenue over the next four quarters. Bonner contends that the "story" on the stock may be "rosier" than the market appreciates at the moment, particularly in light of the company's "shareholder friendly attitude" of dividend growth and share buyback track.

Oracle acquisition of Aconex signals mid-market expansion, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst John DiFucci notes that Oracle (ORCL) announced the acquisition of Aconex, a provider of SaaS solutions for the construction industry, for $1.2B. The analyst sees this acquisition as a further expansion into the mid-market and continuation of a more concerted effort to address a market segment that Oracle has not traditionally addressed, particularly following the acquisitions of Textura (TXTR), Opower (OPWR), and NetSuite (N). DiFucci reiterates a Buy rating and $61 price target on Oracle shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. RBC Capital analyst Ross MacMillan downgraded Oracle (ORCL) to Sector Perform from Outperform and lowered his price target to $51 from $53 after Q2 results. MacMillan says that while better near-term license sales prospects buffer software revenue, bigger license declines can be expected in Q4 and beyond based on the difficult comps and "maturing 12cR2 cycle". 2. JMP Securities analyst Andrew Boone downgraded Criteo (CRTO) to Market Perform from Outperform and Citi analyst Mark Kelley downgraded Criteo to Neutral, with both citing uncertainty around Apple's (AAPL) potential response to the company's workaround of the tech giant's Intelligent Tracking Prevention. 3. Stifel analyst Jim Duffy downgraded Fitbit (FIT) to Sell from Hold as he expects the company will remain unprofitable and burn cash in 2018. 4. JPMorgan analyst Andrea Teixeira downgraded e.l.f. Beauty (ELF) to Underweight, as she expects continued deterioration in sell-through rates in tracked channels to limit the company's ability to hit its 20%-plus long-term revenue growth target.5. Goldman Sachs analyst Jami Rubin removed Amgen (AMGN) from the Conviction Buy List but maintained a Buy rating on the stock. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Oracle 'confounding' Cloud strategy likely caps multiple, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Keith Weiss said Oracle's license business is sustaining better than expected due to a more robust on-premise spending environment and the long-awaited 12c database cycle, but he notes that its Cloud revenues and margins missed expectations. The company's Cloud strategy "continues to confound investors," which will likely keep a near-term cap on the stock's multiple, contends Weiss, who raised his price target on Oracle to $50 from $47 but keeps an Equal Weight rating on the name.

Piper sees Henry Schein positioned well against Amazon in Florida
After visiting one of Henry Schein's (HSIC) top five consumable distribution centers, in Jacksonville, Florida, a market where Amazon (AMZN) has recently made investments, Piper Jaffray analyst Sarah James says the company's offerings may stack up well to Amazon. She highlights Henry Schein's ability to distribute 94% of orders next day with a 99% accuracy rate. The analyst believes the company's customer retention could be higher than the market expects driven by partnerships with dentists to manage inventory and maximize revenue generating space. Henry Schein's main defense against Amazon is customer service and the "sticky behavior" of doctors/dentists, James tells investors in a research note titled "Learning from Ground Zero of the War on Amazon and Dental Consumable Trends." She keeps an Overweight rating on Henry Schein with a $78 price target.

E-Commerce continues to take channel share, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Seth Basham notes that e-Commerce continues to take channel share from bricks and mortar, accounting for an estimated 20% of holiday sales. While retailers such as Williams-Sonoma (WSM), Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) and Pier 1 Imports (PIR) continue to adapt, he believes they not only continue to lose share to online retailers including Amazon.com (AMZN) and Wayfair (W), but also face increasing costs of serving omnichannel shoppers. Mattress retail remains mixed, with Mattress Firm's recent improving sales trends and financing an incremental negative for Tempur Sealy (TPX).

Parcel shipping rates should rise over long-term, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Allison Landry notes that on the back of President Trump's tweet late last week, questions have resurfaced as to whether the USPS has been subsidizing Amazon's (AMZN) logistics costs by charging below market rates in the competitive parcel market, and using its monopoly power in First Class mail to cross-subsidize parcel delivery costs. The analyst believes this is yet another data point that supports her thesis that parcel shipping rates will rise over the long-term as she sees the potential for Postal Reform to be addressed by Congress in 2018. Landry thinks it is only a matter of time before the USPS is forced to raise rates in its package business, which would be a clear positive for FedEx (FDX) and UPS (UPS).

XPO Logistics price target raised to $105 on possible bid at Macquarie
Macquarie analyst James Clement commented on reports from last week that Home Depot (HD) had internal discussions to acquire XPO Logistics (XPO), in part to keep the company out of Amazon's (AMZN) hands. The analyst said both Home Depot and Amazon are material Last Mile customers of XPO, with growth in the business driven by eCommerce trends for heavy goods that often require "white glove" installation, neither of which FedEx nor UPS provide. Clement raised Outperform rated XPO estimates to reflect what he thinks was a better-than-expected holiday season and increased his price target to $105 from $80 to reflect a possible bid from Home Depot and/or Amazon.

Halozyme (HALO) assumed with an Equal Weight from Overweight at Barclays with analyst Gena Wang saying she believes the potential of Halozyme's Enhanze technology is largely reflected in the stock following the recent rally. 4.

JPMorgan sees AWS single sign-on having limited impact on Okta
Shares of Okta (OKTA) are trading down after Amazon Web Services (AMZN) introduced its own basic single sign-on solution. JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty, however, believes the product will not have much of an impact on Okta. Similar to Microsoft (MSFT) Azure, Amazon's product will be good for applications only running in AWS or to control access to a limited number of other SaaS applications, Auty tells investors in a research note. The major advantage for Okta is the ability to control access to all applications regardless of whether they are deployed on premise, in AWS, in Azure, in Google (GOOG, GOOGL), or even a SaaS application like Salesforce (CRM), the analyst contends. He believes Okta's "secret sauce lies in being platform neutral." Auty keeps an Overweight rating on the shares. Okta in morning trading is down 5%, or $1.42, to $27.75.

Adobe price target raised to $220 from $213 at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Kash Rangan raised his price target for Adobe (ADBE) to $220 from $213 ahead of quarterly results. The analyst notes that investors are concerned that the company is losing to competition especially Salesforce (CRM) but marketing growth is not as strong a driver for stock price as digital media growth and profitability metrics are. His channel checks suggest that Adobe is still leader in B2C and is becoming more relevant in B2B. Further, he adds that he could see an e-commerce related acquisition in the future that can consolidate B2B position. Rangan reiterates a Buy rating on Adobe's shares.

The analyst says the latest quarter saw a big beat on constant currency billings, acceleration of revenue across the company's cloud segments, and better than expected margins. MacMillan notes that while a "prudent" Q4 guidance could cap the stock price in the near term, new product initiatives justify his conviction in sustainability of Salesforce growth rates.
