Oracle Corp. (ORCL) dropped the most in a year after quarterly profit and sales missed analysts’ estimates amid efforts to catch up to Salesforce.com Inc. and other rivals in cloud computing. Oracle’s shares slipped 4 percent after the software company yesterday reported profit before certain costs of 92 cents a share in the fiscal fourth quarter that ended May 31 on revenue of $11.3 billion. On average, analysts projected profit of 96 cents and $11.5 billion in sales, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The database and business-software maker, which has relied on acquisitions to fuel growth, has seen the benefits of those deals peter out, posting sales growth of less than 5 percent for the past 11 quarters. Chief Executive Officer Larry Ellison is nearing a deal to buy Micros Systems Inc. (MCRS) for more than $5 billion, according to people familiar with the matter, and he’s also seeking to jump-start growth by remaking Oracle into a cloud provider to win back corporate customers adopting programs delivered via the Internet. “This is a shocker for investors who were expecting a slight beat in the quarter -- new license sales were weak and it’s quite clear the company has a lot of heavy lifting in front of it,” said Daniel Ives, an analyst at FBR Capital Markets & Co., who rates Oracle the equivalent of a buy. “Part of it is execution, part of it is product related.” More»
