Female Microsoft employees allege discrimination, harassment, Quartz says

Women working at Microsoft have shared stories in an email chain of sexual harassment and discrimination, garnering notice from the software and technology giant's senior leadership team, Quartz's Dave Gershgorn reports, citing more than 90 pages of emails. The chain began March 20 when one worker asked other woman at Microsoft for advice on how to move up at the company, after six years in the same position without seeing the possibility of advancement, Gershgorn says. Dozens of women then shared their own frustrations about experiences with discrimination and harassment, detailing claims ranging from sexist remarks during work trips to being told to sit on a coworker's lap in front of an HR leader, the author says. Another female employee said on one project she was only given responsibilities such as booking conference rooms, taking meeting notes, and making dinner reservations despite being in a technical position, Gershgorn says. A spokesperson for Microsoft verified to Quartz that the company's top HR executive had replied to the thread, and the company is holding a regularly scheduled all-hands meeting today, where workers are expected to ask about the allegations described in the thread, according to one of the employees who verified the emails.

Outperform
Microsoft price target raised to $130 from $124 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba raised his price target on Microsoft to $130 and kept his Outperform rating, saying his survey of its Cloud Platform competency partners gives him "incremental confidence" in the company's "competitive position, sustained high rates of growth and adoption of higher tier services". The analyst also raises his FY19 and FY20 EPS outlook as a result of the survey findings to 4c and 6c to $4.41 and $5.00 while boosting his gross margin outlook for both Commercial Cloud and Windows segments.

Overweight
Microsoft price target raised to $125 from $115 at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Mark Murphy raised his price target for Microsoft to $125 from $115 following a round of conversations with industry contacts and speaking with management in recent weeks. The shares closed yesterday down $1.14 to $116.77. Murphy now has higher conviction that Microsoft's business will reaccelerate post the tough comps upcoming in its fiscal Q4. Channel checks indicate a "consistent and healthy" demand environment with no degradation, especially for Azure, the analyst tells investors in a research note. Further, he points out that June and September quarter revenue growth estimates for Microsoft have recalibrated down from 9.3% and 14.1% respectively six months ago, to 8.4% and 9.5% respectively currently. Consensus estimates are in a better place today and are much closer to reality as compared to a few months ago, says the analyst. He reaffirms an Overweight rating on the stock.

Morgan Stanley says Microsoft positioning 'best in tech' after surveying CIOs
Morgan Stanley analyst Keith Weiss said his firm's latest survey of 100 U.S. and European Chief Information Officers show they expect 4.6% budget growth in 2019, which is down slightly from the 4.8% budget growth forecast in 2018. Software is seen being the fastest growing sector within IT, according to the survey, and Microsoft's differentiated Public Cloud offering and solution portfolio positions it as "the top secularly positioned firm in Tech" as the IT conversation shifts from pure Public Cloud toward Hybrid Cloud architectures, Weiss tells investors. He maintains an Overweight rating and $140 price target on Microsoft shares.

Strong Buy
Akamai 'best positioned' for rise in internet content, says Tigress Financial
Tigress Financial analyst Ivan Feinseth kept his Strong Buy rating on Akamai (AKAM), stating the company is "best positioned to grow from increasing demand for content over the internet" and also citing its continued development as a "world-leading cybersecurity service provider." The analyst notes that Akamai is benefiting from the rise of over-the-top content viewing and expanded partnership with Microsoft's (MSFT) Azure, which is "enhancing its on-demand streaming workflows". Feinseth adds that the company also offers a "strong balance sheet and cash flow generation ability", which allows it to fund new strategic acquisitions along with enhancing shareholder returns with buybacks.
