IBM positioned for gross margin stabilization, says RBC Capital

RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani kept his Outperform rating and $180 price target on IBM, saying that it has underperformed in 2018 on investor concerns around its gross margin trajectory and sustainability of revenue growth. The analyst contends however that IBM is positioned for more stable gross margins for the rest of the year and a potential stabilization, "if not growth", in revenues, citing an expected recovery in its Global Business Services segment and a sustained growth in Cognitive and Technology Services & Cloud Platforms. Daryanani believes that the risk-reward on IBM is "attractive".

IBM fundamentals may be more stable than they seem, says Stifel
Stifel analyst David Grossman blames IBM's pretax margins coming in below estimates, as well as the run-up in the stock ahead of earnings, for the afterhours pullback in the stock. While he finds it "a bit hypocritical to reward companies that pro forma out restructuring actions" and penalize IBM for leaving them in, he believes that should normalize over time if the company executes. Grossman, who still likes IBM as a defensive name with catalysts, sees support at a 4% dividend yield, or about $150 per share, which he said "is where large cap legacy tech typically bottoms." He maintains a Buy rating and $182 price target on the shares.

Pegasystems initiated with a Buy at DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Rishi Jaluria initiated Pegasystems (PEGA) with a Buy rating and a price target of $72, citing the company's market leading position in the business process management and case management markets amid the crowing presence of customer relationship management technologies. Jaluria says the company continues to take market share from legacy vendors like IBM (IBM) and Oracle (ORCL) and increasing its competitive position in CRM, while driving opportunities for margin expansion.

Morgan Stanley says report on 'mass layoffs' in IBM's Watson Health 'misleading'
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty said a report from The Register blog that implies "mass layoffs" in IBM's Watson Health unit are "misleading," stating that any such layoffs come after IBM reported $613M in restructuring with its April 17 earnings call and detailed about $100M of that was related to the Cognitive business division. The timing of the March restructuring charge aligns with fully integrating businesses such as Truven Health Analytics and Merge Healthcare into Watson Health, she added. As recently as its March investor day, IBM discussed aggressive hiring in strategic areas like oncology within Watson Health, suggesting any layoffs are gross reductions though its net headcount in Watson Health is likely still expanding, added Huberty, who has an Overweight rating and $198 price target on IBM shares.

JPMorgan downgrades Oracle after CIO survey shows spending contraction
JPMorgan analyst Mark Murphy downgraded Oracle (ORCL) to Neutral from Overweight and lowered his price target for the shares to $53 from $55. The stock closed yesterday down 18c to $48.27. The shares have risen from the $30s into the high $40s over the last two years, but the company's fundamental performance has remained inconsistent, Murphy tells investors in a research note. Further, the analyst notes that in his firm's recent survey of 154 chief investment officers, Oracle received the largest number of indications for planned spending contraction this year, materially more than the second-worst company. The CIOs indicate contraction in Oracle spending this year, placing the company alongside IBM (IBM), Checkpoint (CHKP), and CA (CA), Murphy contends. He notes the results of his firm's CIO surveys over the years "have been highly predictive."
