After proxy, Stifel says Google could come back with bid for Red Hat
After Red Hat (RHT) filed a proxy on Friday evening related to its pending acquisition by IBM (IBM) that mentioned three other parties interested in a potential purchase, Stifel analyst Brad Reback said he believes that "Party A" in the filing is Microsoft (MSFT), that "Party B" is Google (GOOGL) and that "Party C" is Amazon (AMZN). If he is correct with that assessment of the identities of the parties, it is a clear indication that Red Hat shopped itself to the "logical players" during the negotiation process, said Reback, who believes there is still a chance Google may come back and make a bid for Red Hat given the change of leadership in the Google Cloud unit. The analyst, who views Red Hat as a unique asset with strong enterprise relationships, hybrid cloud capabilities, and an open source heritage, keeps a Hold rating and $190 price target on the stock given the existing deal with IBM.

Wedbush bullish on Microsoft into 2019 given Azure cloud momentum
Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives believes Microsoft remains in an "enviable" position heading into 2019 on the heels of its cloud success and is firing on all cylinders around its Office 365 and Azure strategic vision based on his recent checks. The analyst thinks 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 the next 12-18 months. Ives is bullish on the stock into 2019 given his thesis that Azure's cloud momentum is still in its early days of playing out with the company's massive installed base, Office 365 transition on consumer/enterprise providing growth tailwinds for the next 12 to 18 months at least, and newer integrated product initiatives around consumers and cloud services are still playing out within Redmond's ubiquitous installed base of consumers and enterprises worldwide. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $140 price target on the shares.

Jefferies pegs potential value of Amazon Web Services at $350B
The momentum of Amazon Web Services is evident with three days still left in the annual re:Invent Cloud conference, Jefferies analyst Brent Thill tells investors in a research note. Enterprise customers are making bigger commitments earlier with AWS, increasing partner deal sizes 3.5 times, says the analyst. He forecasts AWS revenue to hit $71B by 2020, potentially worth $350B versus Amazon's current market capitalization of $800B. Thill believes AWA is competing well against Oracle (ORCL) and Microsoft (MSFT). The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Amazon with a $2,300 price target.

Sony appeared to be video game hardware winner on Black Friday, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter notes that each of the four game retailers he tracked, namely Best Buy (BBY), GameStop (GME), Target (TGT) and Walmart (WMT) offered the Marvel's Spider-Man PlayStation 4 Bundle that included a slim PS4 with a 1TB hard drive and Sony's (SNE) Marvel's Spider-Man for $199.99, as well as the Microsoft's (MSFT) Xbox One S Minecraft Creators Bundle that included an Xbox One S with a 1TB hard drive, a Minecraft full game download, the Starter Pack, the Creators Pack, and 1,000 Minecoins for $199.99. Nintendo's (NTDOY) primary hardware offering was less compelling given that it was priced at the console's standard MSRP, he adds. The only sell-out that the analyst saw over Black Friday was the primary PS4 deal. Pachter expects the Black Friday deals to eventually translate into permanent price cuts for the base PS4 and Xbox One, possibly by this Christmas.
