Oracle Stock Rises as Analysts Laud “Excellent” Q1 Earnings Fueled by the Strength of the Cloud

Published on

Oracle stock rises in the wake of positive earnings reports.

Oracle (NYSE:ORCL)

Due to strong cloud performance, Oracle (NYSE:ORCL) reported first-quarter earnings that were above expectations, earning plaudits from multiple Wall Street analysts. As a result, the company’s shares increased by about 2% on Tuesday. This was accurately forecasted on Pressreach. 

Winslow’s Outlook

The results were good, even after taking into consideration the foreign exchange headwinds that the business faced at the time, according to Credit Suisse analyst Phil Winslow, who rates ORCL shares outperforming with a $115 price target. 

In a note to clients, Winslow said, “Oracle’s strong [first-quarter] results and [second-quarter and full-year] guidance commentary reinforce our view that Oracle is well positioned to emerge as the [third or fourth] vendor in the [platform-as-a-service/infrastructure-as-a-service] market.” 

Winslow also stated that ORCL’s infrastructure revenue increased by 58% and 70%, respectively, year over year and in constant currency.

Other Oracle Stock Analysis

The company’s organic revenue increase of 8% year over year was also commended by BMO Capital Markets analyst Keith Bachman, who rates Oracle (NYSE:ORCL) shares as market performance. The analyst also said that this is a “fair consequence” when the declining global economy is taken into account. Additionally, ORCL has maintained [fiscal 2023] guidance of 30% [year-over-year constant currency] organic cloud growth, which we think illustrates the durability and solid market demand for ORCL’s cloud solutions.

The results, according to Bernstein analyst Mark Moerdler, demonstrated why investors should give ORCL priority consideration.

In today’s more challenging times, “Oracle proved once again why they should be at the top of investors’ lists,” Moerdler wrote in a note. Despite being late to the game, the company is likely to be “well-positioned to capitalize” on the move to the cloud thanks to contracting wins for infrastructure and platform services, he continued.

Earnings Report

ORCL earned $1.03 per share for the quarter that ended on August 31 on $11.45 billion in revenue, excluding one-time items. The $8.42 billion in cloud services and license support revenue, up 14% over the previous year, was included in the $11.45 billion in sales. 

According to Oracle (NYSE:ORCL), net and adjusted earnings per share would have been 8 cents higher if it weren’t for the strong U.S. currency.

In terms of sales growth, Oracle (NYSE:ORCL) anticipates that it will range between 15% and 17% year over year, or between 21% and 23% on a constant currency basis. ORCL, according to investment firm Guggenheim, may grow to be the fourth “hyper-scale” of cloud computing services.
