Microsoft, Johnson Controls and Bee'ah announce agreement

Executives from Johnson Controls (JCI), Microsoft (MSFT) and the Middle East's sustainability pioneer, Bee'ah, announced an agreement to enhance Bee'ah's new headquarters in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, with a sweeping array of artificial intelligence and smart building solutions powered by Microsoft. Using its Digital Vault offering and extended capabilities built on Microsoft Azure, Johnson Controls will work with Microsoft to outfit the new building with intelligent edge systems, devices and software designed to optimize energy efficiency, make the best use of available space and help the building's occupants be more productive through a virtual AI persona.

Overweight
Microsoft price target raised to $141 from $125 at KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Brent Bracelin raised his price target for Microsoft to $141 from $125 on increasing confidence in the company's cloud and digital strategy. The analyst sees the March quarter as another positive milestone and part of a broader multi-year cloud and digital journey that has structurally improved the business model drivers and prospects of sustaining double-digit annual growth. O365 subscription ARR could top $20B for the first time, while Azure could top $12B, he contends, adding that robust commercial cloud growth of 43% could push the cloud mix to 33% versus 5% in FY15. Bracelin reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares.

Outperform
Microsoft price target raised to $150 from $140 at Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives raised his price target for Microsoft to $150 from $140 ahead of quarterly results. The analyst expects the company to post a "solid beat" across the board 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 Microsoft could beat commercial cloud expectations by about 3%-4%. Ives believes the shift to cloud is a major secular trend and key tailwind that is significantly benefiting Microsoft in the field and should continue its momentum heading into the second half of 2019/2020 based on his checks showing an inflection point of demand is abound. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Morgan Stanley prefers Seagate over Western Digital as cloud capex recovery play
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty said her industry conversations have increased her confidence in a cloud recovery in the second half. Her checks suggest orders from Microsoft (MSFT) will restart in Q2 and rise to above trend levels in Q3 while orders from Amazon (AMZN), Google (GOOGL), Facebook (FB) and Apple (AAPL) are expected to return in Q3. Given this context, Huberty said she prefers Seagate (STX) over Western Digital (WDC) as a play on a cloud capital expenditure recovery, noting that inventory levels position hard disk drives to benefit before NAND, that HDD pricing is structurally better positioned than NAND and her view that Seagate has a better HDD product portfolio to meet cloud demand in the second half of 2019 and first half of 2020. Huberty has an Overweight rating on Seagate and the firm has an Equal Weight rating on Western Digital, which is covered by analyst Joseph Moore.

Microsoft price target raised to $130 ahead of Q3 earnings at Stifel
Stifel analyst Brad Reback raised his price target on Microsoft shares to $130 from $120 ahead of the company's Q3 report on Wednesday, stating that he expects upside to his in-line estimates given the constructive IT spending environment, expectations for commercial Office 365 gains in selling price and units, strength in Azure and gaming and "less bad" IDC shipment data. Reback maintains a Buy rating on Microsoft ahead of the report on April 24.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Okta (OKTA) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Heather Bellini saying the company's "strong" results since its April 2017 initial public offering continue to demonstrate the growing role that identity is playing in the wider enterprise information technology ecosystem. 2. Dollar General (DG) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Karen Short saying the company is doing what all "best-in-class" retailers do, it is investing from a position of strength to enhance its competitive edge, even if it means near-term guidance disappoints. 3. Johnson Controls (JCI) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with the firm's analyst saying the timing is now better for the story to play out. 4. Drive Shack (DS) upgraded to Outperform from In-Line at Imperial Capital with analyst George Kelly saying he is optimistic that the company's new venues opening this summer and fall will perform better than Orlando, and longer-term, he believe Drive Shack's management will be able to "navigate the rapidly growing golf entertainment space." 5. Dentsply Sirona (XRAY) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at William Blair with analyst John Kreger citing what he viewed as a positive International Dental Show.

U.S. HVAC may be at 'now or never' moment for consolidation, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analysts Joshua Pokrzywinski and Rajeev Lalwani said they believe the U.S. heating, ventilation, and air conditioning industry may be at a "now or never" moment for consolidation, noting that United Technologies (UTX) has started "negotiating in public" given CEO Greg Hayes' comments on his view on valuation, timing and a structure for any deal for its Carrier business. The analysts said they believe that antitrust concerns limit the discussion to two potential transactions, namely combining Carrier with Johnson Controls (JCI) or with Lennox (LII). While both scenarios could unlock value, they view the path to a deal as easier for Lennox and see United Technologies shares as "the best way to play" this consolidation theme. Including a Carrier transaction in their sum-of-the-parts valuation would point to a United Technologies share price of up to $170, versus their price target on the stock of $155, noted the analysts.
