What are Wall Street analysts saying about Oracle stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Oracle stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Oracle is benefiting from strong adoption of its cloud-based solutions, comprising Fusion ERP and Fusion HCM, among others. We note that partnerships with the likes of Accenture are helping the company rapidly expand its cloud-base clientele. Also, anticipated strong demand for the next-generation autonomous database supported by machine learning will boost competitive position against AWS. Further, Oracle is anticipated to benefit from growing retail clientele. Nonetheless, stiff competition in the cloud market from dominant players is anticipated to limit margin expansion. Further, lower hardware volumes are anticipated to hurt top-line growth consequently keeping margins under pressure. Additionally, integration risks from buyouts remain a concern. Notably, shares of Oracle have underperformed the industry in the past year." (2/21/2019)
  • 2. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We come away from the event with our view unchanged for the near term but grow- ing more positive for the longer term. Our focus at the event was primarily meeting with customers and secondarily attending the annual analyst day. The feedback we received from large customers reinforced the view that they remain committed to Oracle and view the launch of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Gen 2 as the potential catalyst to begin the migration of large enterprise applications to the cloud – which the company estimates could drive a 3x multiple on current revenue. We retain our neutral rating and $51 price target but are following customer migration plans very closely." (10/30/2018)
  • 3. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We believe the growth opportunities from the autonomous database will have a slow ramp. This is consistent with feedback we heard from partners at the conference, who indicated that customers were just beginning to enter the early adopter phase." (10/26/2018)
