Microsoft restructured itself around intelligent edge cloud, says Oppenheimer
After attending the Microsoft Build Developer Conference, Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan notes it became obvious that the company has totally restructured itself around the intelligent edge cloud. Microsoft sees Azure as a base layer that customers use to run their applications on top of but also as a building block for its services up the software "stack" through dozens of new PaaS and SaaS offerings, he contends. The analyst adds that by running on Azure, Microsoft applications become cheaper to operate, easier to innovate, and integrate the services. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $145 price target on the shares.

Cray downgraded to Hold from Buy at Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Chad Bennett downgraded Cray (CRAY) to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target on the shares to $35 from $36 after HP Enterprise (HPE) announced that it has entered into an agreement to purchase the company for $35.00 per share in cash, totaling $1.3B net of cash. The analyst believes the possibility of another buyer coming in over the top is fairly low, but notes that the price is "too low" based on the opportunities Cray has in front of it over the next few years. Furthermore, Bennett believes there would be a number of interested parties in Cray including Microsoft (MSFT), Dell (DELL), Intel (INTC), Alphabet (GOOG), Amazon (AMZN), and potentially IBM (IBM).

Microsoft's Azure adoption proceeding well, says UBS
UBS analyst Jennifer Lowe kept her Buy rating and $150 price target on Microsoft after meeting with its Investor Relations executives last week, saying the discussions affirmed her view that adoption of the company's Azure is going well. The analyst expects Microsoft's margins to "work higher", adding that she is also positive on the company's growth prospects around Office 365 and cloud gaming. Lowe expects Microsoft to hold its current enterpise value to free cash flow multiple amid underlying growth in spite of the company investing more in its growth initiatives.

Craig-Hallum downgrades Cray to Hold, but says bidding war possible
Craig-Hallum analyst Chad Bennett downgrade Cray (CRAY) to Hold from Buy after the company announced a deal to be acquired by HP Enterprise (HPE) for $35 per share, but he added that he thinks a bidding war is possible since he doesn't believe the stock buyout price "has even begun to value" Cray's proprietary interconnect technology and its modular software stack for next generation AI/ML workloads. He believes there could be a number of interested parties in Cray including Microsoft (MSFT), Dell (DELL), Intel (INTC), Google (GOOG), Amazon (AMZN) and potentially IBM (IBM).
