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 one of the largest enterprise-grade database, middleware and application software providers. The company is benefiting from strong adoption of its cloud-based solutions. We believe that the company’s growing cloud market share will continue to drive top-line growth in the long haul. 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. Nonetheless, stiff competition in the cloud is expected to hurt margins and will make revenue growth difficult. Notably, Oracle has undergone structural changes. It no longer intends to break out its cloud revenues and does not provide any guidance on SaaS, Cloud PaaS and IaaS. This move is likely to enhance investor concern about the company's outlook." (9/21/2018) 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We are lowering our estimates to reflect Oracle’s clarified guidance around ASC 606 and impact from currency headwinds. Consistent with our 3Q18 CIO Survey and after speaking to several Oracle implementation partners, it appears business trends are stable. Oracle’s move to the cloud continues to be a long- term process, and this is consistent with the feedback we have heard from the channel. Remain Sector Weight."
