What are Wall Street analysts saying about Oracle stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Oracle stock:
  • 1. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We expect Oracle to report in- line cloud and total revenue, and in-line EPS for the F4Q. For cloud, we are expecting 20.6% growth, which is slightly lower than consensus of 21.6% for the F4Q. Street is modeling 21.9% cloud growth, which is in line with our estimate for 21.2%. Oracle had closed the Aconex acquisition at the end of March. We had added Aconex to our estimates after the last earnings call. Oracle only provides quarterly cloud guidance and generally does not provide yearly cloud growth guidance, though it could provide commentary around yearly EPS growth expectations." (6/15/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Oracle’s gross margin expansion is hurt by higher investments on IaaS platform. Moreover, management provided soft outlook for the cloud business, which will remain an overhang on the shares in the near term. Shares of the company have underperformed the industry in the past year. Further, estimates have remained stable lately ahead of the company’s Q4 earnings release. However, Oracle 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. The company has positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters." (5/22/2018)
  • 3. Credit Suisse Group AG analysts commented, "We note the Zenedge acquisition presentation sizes the ‘cloud security market’ at $4.1bn in 2017, and growing exponentially to $12.7bn by 2022. IaaSpirations: Following Oracle’s announced data center expansion on Monday (followed by comments suggesting no change in IaaS strategy or CapEx intentions); we view this as additional evidence of a complete and competitive IaaS offering. All three major public cloud platforms offer similar web security functionality. We note Zenedge offers AWS specific WAF and DDoS products today and it will be interesting to see if these remain. We believe the world should remain multi-cloud for the foreseeable future and Oracle’s autonomous cloud a highly relevant part of that, especially for large enterprises." (2/18/2018)
  • 4. Drexel Hamilton analysts commented, "We believe these reports are inaccurate and we would be buyers of Oracle on any weakness this afternoon." (1/2/2018)
