What are Wall Street analysts saying about salesforce.com stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about salesforce.com stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Salesforce reported stellar Q2 results and provided a strong outlook. The company’s diverse cloud offerings and strong spending on digital marketing remain the catalysts. Management is extremely optimistic about enhancement of customer experience that has aided growth of the cloud segment.  Additionally, strategic acquisitions and the resultant synergies are anticipated to prove conducive to growth over the long run. Furthermore, the company’s move of utilizing other data center operators like Amazon and Alphabet’s geographical reach to expand its international business is commendable and will help it in achieving its targeted $23 billion sales mark by 2022. The stock has outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. Nonetheless, stiff competition, currency fluctuations and an increase in investments for international expansions and data centers could negatively impact near-term profitability." (9/5/2018)
  • 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We remain bullish on CRM, as well as ADBE, MSFT, and WDAY, as the top cloud platforms to own based our view that these platforms are hitting escape velocity as cloud adoption goes mainstream in the enterprise." (2/28/2018)

Unbilled deferred revenue (representing business that is contracted but unbilled and off-balance sheet) ended the fourth quarter at approximately $13.3 billion, up 48% year-over-year. For the year the company ended up with revenue growing +24.9% and adjusted margins of 14.5%, which compared with 13.2% margins in the year-ago period. The company also provided more specific 2019 guidance, calling for 20-21% revenue growth, roughly consistent with our prior expectations slightly above this range and featuring operating income margin expansion of 125 to 150bps. 16.0%. However, EPS guidance for 2017 was better than our prior $1.89 estimate, in part on a lower-than-expected tax rate. Guidance calls for a $2.02 to $2.04 range, and our model’s new figure is slightly above this level." (2/28/2018)
