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. 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. Moreover, stiff competition in the cloud is expected to hurt margins and will make revenue growth difficult, going forward. Further, large acquisitions can negatively impact the company’s balance sheet in the form of a high level of goodwill and intangible assets. Oracle will likely be affected also because of lawsuits and currency volatility as it transitions from licensing to cloud. Shares of the company have underperformed the industry in the past year. Nonetheless, we believe that the company’s growing cloud market share will continue to drive top-line growth in the long haul. " (12/11/2018)
  • 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)
