Analysts' Thoughts

ORCL stock has been a strong performer in 2019 after a sharp sell off during the final two months of 2018. ORCL found its footing in late-December and shares are currently trading just shy of the all-time high. Oracle has a solid earnings track record, posting better than expected earnings each of the last nine quarters. The street is looking for another earnings beat this quarter with a whisper number of $0.87. Despite the stock trading at an all-time its forward P/E is an attractive 14.3, with earnings expected to grow 10% per annum over the next five years. The street is bullish on the stock and if Oracle is able to post another earnings surprise as expected shares should rise to a new all-time high following the report. Analysts have an average price target of $52.61 on Oracle stock.
