Oracle’s top-notch earnings and guidance earned it a downgrade to Buy from Strong Buy from CFRA’s Scott Kessler:

We raise our 12-month target by $4 to $51. Peers have a median forward P/E of 19.5X and P/E-to-growth of 2.3. Using these multiples results in our target. We raise our EPS estimates for FY 17 (May) by $0.08 to $2.64 and FY 18 by $0.02 to $2.83, and set FY 19′s at $3.09. ORCL posts Feb-Q non-GAAP EPS of $0.69 vs. $0.64, $0.07 over our estimate. Sales rose 2%, with a 62% increase in cloud revenues, accounting for 13% of total sales. ORCL raises its dividend by 27% and has an implied yield of 1.6%. After recent appreciation, we see ORCL as an attractive, but not a compelling value.
