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 faces stiff competition from Microsoft Corp. and Oracle in the cloud-based CRM market. Oracle has strengthened its cloud position through various acquisitions while Microsoft offers special pricing for its Dynamics CRM Online service, which is helping it to snatch Salesforce’s customers. Moreover, increased focus on acquisitions could negatively impact Salesforce’s balance sheet in the form of a high level of goodwill. Furthermore, acquisitions add to integration risks, which may dilute earnings. However, opening of data centers in European countries has helped Salesforce raise significant revenues. Going forward, we believe expansion in Europe would enable Salesforce to diversify its international revenues." (7/31/2018)
  • 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)
  • 3. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We previously forecast +23.5% revenue growth for 4Q18 and adjusted margin of 13.3% vs. consensus of +22.5% and margins of 13.8%. 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)
