IBM/Red Hat may look to partner much more with Google, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan notes that IBM (IBM) and Red Hat (RHT) have lagged leaders such as Microsoft (MSFT), Amazon (AMZN), Google (GOOG; GOOGL) in the cloud. By merging, they are trying to improve their cloud position and Horan sees them looking to use the disruptive Container/Kubernetes to create a new hybrid cloud platform. Given how far behind they are in infrastructure, the analyst believes they may look to partner much more with Google, which is a threat to Microsoft more so than AWS. While Horan thinks the deal does open up an opportunity for a combined IBM/Red Hat to enter the market with a new service, they still have a long way to go before they can compete with Microsoft and Amazon in cloud.

IBM deal reinforces Morgan Stanley confidence in Hybrid Cloud emergence
After IBM (IBM) announced its intention to acquire Red Hat (RHT) for about $34B in a deal with an over 60% premium to Red Hat's Friday closing price, Morgan Stanley analyst Keith Weiss said the announcement reinforced both his confidence in the emergence of Hybrid Cloud architectures and the strength of IT spending into 2019. Red Hat has been Microsoft's (MSFT) primary competitor within server operating systems, and has generally been taking share, said Weiss, who thinks the longer-term opportunity or threat for Microsoft hinges on the ability of IBM to execute well and maintain the open source enthusiasm around the Red Hat distributions. For VMware (VMW) and Pivotal Software (PVTL), while Weiss sees little near-term impact, he adds that the proposed combination would likely result in a fiercer competitive environment going forward. For New Relic (NEWR), he sees little direct competitive impacts from the proposed merger. Given HortonWorks' (HDP) strong existing ties to IBM, Cloudera (CLDR) could benefit by becoming a preferred data management vendor within the OpenShift ecosystem, Weiss added.

IBM acquisition of Red Hat 'game changing,' says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives notes that IBM (IBM) has announced a definitive deal in which it will be acquiring cloud player Red Hat (RHT) for $190 per share, thus representing an enterprise value of $34B in one of the biggest tech M&A deals ever. The analyst believes this is a "game changing" cloud acquisition that will have wide-reaching ramifications not just for IBM, but across the broader cloud and tech space and could spark an acceleration in M&A over the next 6 to 12 months. In his opinion, this was a major shot across the bow from IBM and Rometty to core cloud players such as Amazon (AMZN) Microsoft (MSFT), and Google (GOOG; GOOGL) that there is another player in town that plans to aggressively compete in this massive secular hybrid cloud shift. Further, Ives believes the combination of Red Hat and its Linux cloud platform with IBM could represent a "formidable" cloud behemoth for the coming years.

Stifel downgrades Red Hat to Hold, but sees potential for competing bid
Stifel analyst Brad Reback downgraded Red Hat (RHT) to Hold from Buy after IBM (IBM) announced an agreement to acquire the company for $190 per share. Stating that he is not aware of any M&A talks, Reback added that he would not be surprised if a hyperscale cloud vendor such as Google (GOOGL), Amazon (AMZN), Microsoft (MSFT) or Oracle (ORCL) to make a competing bid given Red Hat's strategic position within on-premise datacenters. Reback raised his price target on Red Hat shares from $160 to the announced deal price of $190.
