Overweight
OpenText price target lowered to $38 from $47 at MUFG
MUFG analyst Stephen Bersey lowered his price target on OpenText to $38 after its Q1 results saw a miss on expected revenue. The analyst keeps his Overweight rating however, noting that the quarter also saw some progress being made toward achieving FY21 financial targets of $1B in operating cash flow. Bersey is also positive on the company's $310M purchase of Liaison Technologies, which he expects to produce an incremental margin improvement.

OpenText price target raised to $43 from $38 at MUFG
MUFG analyst Stephen Bersey raised his price target for OpenText to $43 following the company's fiscal Q2 results. The analyst thinks OpenText had "another solid quarter," highlighted by a new acquisition of Catalyst Repository Systems and continued execution against its fiscal 2019 target model. He's bullish on the company's cloud business, which he thinks has been bolstered by recent acquisitions.

Buy
OpenText price target raised to $48 from $42 at Benchmark
Benchmark analyst Mark Schappel raised his price target on OpenText (OTEX) shares to $48 from $42 after having attended the company's annual user conference. No "monumental revelations" came out of the event, but it reinforced his Buy rating and overall investment thesis, said Schappel, who sees the company as a consolidator in the relatively mature ECM/EIM software space. Ahead of April 2020, when the company will start to sell all of its solutions as a cloud service, OpenText "strengthened its cloud credentials" by announcing an extended partnership with Google Cloud to become Google's (GOOGL) preferred EIM services provider, noted Schappel.

Hold
Micro Focus initiated with a Hold at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Julian Serafini started Micro Focus with a Hold rating and $21 price target. The ongoing integration of HPE is a "drag on the business with synergies taking longer to materialize," says the analyst. He views the stock's valuation as full and risk/reward unappealing with its business facing "meaningful headwinds."
