PC shipment data supportive of bullish thesis on Microsoft, says Credit Suisse

Credit Suisse analyst Michael Nemeroff notes that both IDC and Gartner (IT) reported preliminary PC shipment data that called out strength in the commercial market. The analyst points out that IDC highlighted that PC shipments outperformed in Q1, while Gartner noted that Q1 commercial PC shipments were strong, largely driven by Windows 10 migrations that were previously postponed during 2017. Nemeroff believes these data are supportive of his bullish thesis on Microsoft (MSFT) shares, as there is a high correlation to enterprises upgrading their productivity suite platform when upgrading their OS environments, or replacing PCs. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating and $115 price target on Microsoft shares.

Underperform
Microsoft restructuring keeps reporting units unchanged, says Jefferies
Microsoft announced a reorganization of its engineering teams that clearly demonstrates the company's commitment to artificial intelligence, Jefferies analyst John DiFucci tells investors in a research note. The analyst points out that none of the company's financial reporting units will change under the restructuring. Microsoft will continue to release all its current key performance indicators - "for now," DiFucci writes. The analyst adds that while the changes and concurrent departure of Terry Myerson "could on the surface" appear to be deemphasizing the Windows business, he currently estimates that about a third of the company's profit still pertains to Windows. DiFucci keeps an Underperform rating on Microsoft with a $62 price target.

Morgan Stanley says CIO survey good for Microsoft, Amazon, negative for Juniper
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty detailed the results of the firm's April survey of 100 U.S. and European Chief information officers, noting that it showed the most bullish growth expectation in 10 years. CIOs surveyed see rising 2018 IT budget growth expectations, increasing their cumulative growth view to 5.4% in the most recent survey from a 4.9% growth outlook in January, Huberty noted. Cloud and Security are top priorities, and the strong public cloud adoption trends favor Amazon (AMZN) and Microsoft (MSFT), according to the analyst. Meanwhile, Huberty noted that Cisco (CSCO) saw a slight tick down in purchase intentions, Juniper Networks (JNPR) continues to sees negative spend, and F5 Networks (FFIV) saw weakening purchase intentions.

Automation the next 'cloud wars' battle, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Brent Bracelin says the AWS Summit SF exposed an even greater focus by Amazon (AMZN) Web Services on cloud automation. The analyst believes the "cloud wars" in 2018 appear to be moving from a battle of "features" seen in the last two years toward a new battle of "automation." Bracelin sees Automation as having three major benefits for AWS: it can drive material cost savings, it saves developers time, and it serves as a competitive differentiator versus Microsoft Azure (MSFT) and Google Cloud (GOOG; GOOGL). Bracelin reiterates a Sector Weight rating on Amazon's shares.

Outperform
Microsoft can return to mid-teens EPS, FCF growth, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Phil Winslow believes Microsoft can return to mid-teens EPS and free cash flow growth as the headwinds from a declining PC market in recent years and the transition to the cloud continue abate relative to the increase in recurring subscription revenue from Azure and Office 365 and as the company continues to prudently control costs. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Gartner price target raised to $155 from $143 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Gary Bisbee raised his price target on Gartner to $98, forecasting a 10% reduction in effective tax rate that will boost 2018 EPS by about 13%. The analyst says that the company's core business is strengthening, while its acquisition of CEB offers "significant potential" for the unit's growth. Moreover, the analyst notes that the company is attractively valued at a 10% discount to historic valuation. Bisbee keeps his Top Pick rating on Gartner.

Top Pick
Gartner price target lowered to $139 from $144 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Gary Bisbee lowered his price target on Gartner to $139 but kept his Top Pick rating, saying his valuation view change is driven by the impact of the CEB Talent Assessment business transaction and expectations of "somewhat" higher interest rates. Bisbee notes that despite the company's disappointing Q2 guidance, the upside on the stock is "compelling" with 3:1 upside-to-downside risk-reward potential. The analyst also points to Gartner's strengthening core technology business and higher expected bookings in the second half of 2018 thanks to the recent "heavy" investment in sales.
