Oracle slides as JPMorgan cuts rating on business lost to Amazon, Microsoft

Shares of Oracle (ORCL) are sliding after JPMorgan analyst Mark Murphy downgraded the stock to Neutral, citing negative results from a survey of Chief Information Officers about their spending. The analyst noted that the survey showed spending contraction ahead as Oracle's databases are being unplugged in favor of Microsoft (MSFT) and Amazon (AMZN) databases. SURVEY SAYS: In a research note this morning, JPMorgan's Murphy downgraded Oracle to Neutral from Overweight as specific metrics in the firm's large-scale CIO survey have arced over into negative territory. The analyst told investors that while Oracle's shares have risen from the $30s into the high $40s in the last 2 years, the company's fundamental performance has remained inconsistent. Citing his survey of 154 CIOs, Murphy noted that Oracle received the largest number of indications for planned spending contraction this year, materially more than the second-worst company, which was IBM (IBM) with 25 indications of spending contraction. Further, while ranking the top 8 or 9 mega-vendors in terms of who will be most critical and indispensable to CIOs' IT environment in the future, Oracle only received 6.5% of votes, down from 11% in previous surveys, the analyst highlighted. At the same time, Murphy pointed out that Amazon AWS improved from 9.5% of votes last year to 14.9% of votes this year, creating the appearance of a "sucking sound" out of Oracle and into AWS. The company also ranked number 8 in terms of association with Digital Transformation projects, disappointing relative to its scale and lagging behind the likes of SAP (SAP), IBM, and Cisco (CSCO), he added, noting that despite Oracle's efforts to build a Cloud presence, it rated no better than SAP in terms of association with Cloud Computing plans, and is nowhere close to the leaders Microsoft, Amazon, and Google (GOOGL; GOOG) in this respect. Oracle was mentioned by only 2% of the CIOs as the platform that will be "most integral" to their cloud computing plans, Murphy said. Overall, the analyst questions where Oracle's business and stock are heading in the next couple of years if the largest-scale CIO survey shows Oracle now has negative spending intentions, is lagging in Digital Transformation projects, is trailing in Cloud Computing plans, its databases are being unplugged in favor of Microsoft and Amazon databases, its applications are being unplugged in favor of Salesforce (CRM) and Workday (WDAY) applications, and customers are weary of its unpopular commercial tactics. Murphy also lowered his price target on Oracle's shares to $53 from $55. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a research note of his own, Nomura Instinet analyst Christopher Eberle lowered his price target for Oracle to $60 from $64 ahead of the company's fourth quarter results on June 19. The analyst trimmed his estimates to account for currency and expectations for more modest revenue acceleration in fiscal 2019. He remains optimistic, however, on Oracle's transition and model growth reacceleration as the year progresses. Eberle reiterated a Buy rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, shares of Oracle dropped almost 5% to $46.14.

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."

Morgan Stanley says AT&T ruling may help narrow public/private media value gap
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne said the court approval of AT&T's (T) acquisition of Time Warner (TWX) without conditions recognized the reality of new competition in the form of content investments from players such as Netflix (NFLX), Google's (GOOGL) YouTube, Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL) and Facebook (FB). This ruling sends a "clear message to other industry players" and market uncertainty on deal prospects could fall, which could mean that equity values will likely rise accordingly, Swinburne tells investors. He notes there remains a large gap, which may now narrow, between private market valuations and public multiples in many parts of media and cable, pointing to Discovery Inc. (DISCK) as an example illustrating that point.

Adding five new development studios to buttress Microsoft's first-party content particularly supported this view, said Weiss, who keeps an Overweight rating and $130 price target on Microsoft shares.

In a research note to investors, Bonner says the purchase is the biggest sign yet of the monumental shift in Microsoft's strategy and orientation under Satya Nadella, its CEO, and that Nadella has sought to shift the company to an open-source ethos that dovetails with its Azure cloud services business rather than seeking to protect Windows software at any cost. Bonner maintained his FY18 EPS forecast of $3.84 and FY19 forecast of $3.92.

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.

If Adaptive Insights can be integrated with Cape Clear, which Workday previously bought in 2008, it raises the possibility of more future acquisitions, added DiFucci who keeps a Hold rating and $119 price target on Workday shares.
