Deutsche has 'high degree of conviction' in Okta's growth after checks

Deutsche Bank analyst Gray Powell says he has a "high degree of conviction" in Okta's (OKTA) ability to maintain a heightened pace of growth in the second half of calendar 2018 and into 2019 after speaking with a few resellers in the identity space. Partners are seeing Okta's multi-factor authentication solutions increasingly included in new deals and believe that the product is helping the company drive larger transactions, Powell tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes Okta "maintains a number of technical and strategic advantages" over Microsoft's (MSFT) Azure Active Directory and he keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

William Blair 'incrementally more positive' after Okta analyst day
William Blair analyst Jonathan Ho left Okta's analyst day "incrementally more positive on the story" saying the company appears to have a more durable growth opportunity than he had anticipated. By committing to at least 30% growth over the next five years, Ho sees Okta scaling to become a significantly larger business with the opportunity to continue exceeding expectations. Management's tone was bullish when setting a medium-term growth target of delivering at least 30% or better revenue growth over the next five years while also delivering operating leverage to achieve a pro forma operating margin range of 16% to 19%, Ho tells investors in a research note. He keeps an Outperform rating on Okta shares.

Okta near a bottom, will reward long-term investors, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Richard Davis said Okta's analyst day outlined the path to becoming a multi-billion dollar company. The analyst said the company is well positioned to scale and it will nicely reward long-term investors. He expects strong Q3 results and said with its recent selloff, it could be close to a bounce. Davis reiterated his Buy rating and $75 price target on Okta shares.

Okta initiated with a Neutral at Baird
Baird analyst Jonathan Ruykhaver last night initiated coverage of Okta with a Neutral rating and $65 price target. The company's multiple is above the high end of the Software-as-a-Service universe range, but this is justified by its growth also being near the high end, Ruykhaver tells investors in a research note.

Morgan Stanley says publishers in 'win-win' situation as consoles move to cloud
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak sees changes coming to the $53B global console gaming market as the business model transitions toward subscription pricing and cloud delivery. The transition will lead to 2% CAGR console gaming revenue growth from 2017-2025, but gross profit growth accelerating to 6%, Nowak estimates. He believes game publishers such as Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA) and Take-Two (TTWO) will likely need to partner and bundle content to drive material consumer adoption, but he sees them being in a "win-win" position, because even if the console makers or other aggregators drive the cloud transition, the leading publishers can still benefit from expansion in the player base, Nowak tells investors. While console players Microsoft (MSFT) and Sony (SNE) have the most at risk from these changes, they are also positioned best to build and grow game subscription services, Nowak added.

Shift to cloud 'significantly' benefiting Microsoft, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives notes Microsoft (MSFT) will be reporting its Q1 results this week and expects Nadella & Co. to post another solid beat on both the top and bottom line as cloud strength on Azure and Office 365 continues to be the fuel in the tank, with strong field checks indicating the company could beat commercial cloud expectations by 3%-5%. While the massive secular shift to the cloud is a "two horse race" between Amazon (AMZN) and Microsoft, the analyst is seeing a clear inflection point in the field as more enterprises and government agencies make this transformational move to a hybrid cloud architecture with Redmond making a major partner push on the SMB front. Ives believes the shift to cloud is a major secular trend that is "significantly" benefiting Microsoft in the field as a key tailwind and should continue its momentum heading into FY2019. Ives reiterates an Outperform rating and $140 price target on Microsoft's shares.

Microsoft gross margin declined for first time in 8 quarters, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst John DiFucci says that Microsoft exceeded fiscal Q1 expectations, its free cash flow declined 2% year-over-year and its gross margin declined modestly for first time in eight quarters. He notes, however, that its operating margin increased 282 basis points. The analyst notes that he continues "to monitor the bottom line that matters most" - free cash flow. DiFucci keeps an Underperform rating on Microsoft with a $75 price target.

Piper says 'don't worry, be happy' after Microsoft's Q1 results
In a post-earnings research note titled "Don't Worry, Be Happy," Piper Jaffray analyst Alex Zukin says Microsoft last night reported a "very strong start to its fiscal year," highlighted by a revenue beat of 4% and an earnings beat of 19%. Driving the outperformance was strong sales execution, high demand for Microsoft's cloud and hybrid services, and favorable macroeconomic and IT spending trends, Zukin tells investors in a research note. He reiterates an Overweight rating on Microsoft with a $130 price target, noting the shares are down 11% from their highs.
