What’s happening: Shares of Oracle Corporation edged higher in after-hours trading on Monday, after the company released results for its fiscal first quarter.
What happened: Oracle posted in-line sales for the quarter, having generated a healthy financial contribution from its recently acquired medical records firm Cerner.
However, the Austin, Texas-based company failed to meet earnings estimates mainly due to currency fluctuations.
How were the results: The database software giant reported growth in sales for the first quarter.
Why it matters: Oracle closed its agreement to acquire health IT firm Cerner in June and has already started gaining from the deal.
The company reported strong demand for its cloud services, which boosted the segment’s revenues by 45% to $3.6 billion. The figure included a contribution of $1.4 billion from Cerner.
“As our cloud businesses become a larger-and-larger percentage of our overall business, we expect our constant currency organic revenue growth rate to hit double-digits with a corresponding increase in earnings per share. Cerner will also positively impact revenue and earnings per share growth in the coming quarters as we fully integrate Cerner into Oracle and benefit from the resulting cost efficiencies,” CEO Safra Catz said during the earnings call.
Sales from the Fusion application for managing corporate finances climbed 33%, while revenues from NetSuite’s enterprise planning tools jumped 27%.
The company’s board declared a quarterly dividend of 32 cents per share.
Management projected revenue growth between 21% and 23% for the current quarter. However, the company guided to a decline of 1% to 5% in non-GAAP earnings.
How shares responded: Oracle’s shares rose 1.4% to $78.15 during the extended trading session on Monday, following the release of quarterly results. The stock has lost around 12% year to date.
What to watch: Markets will keep an eye on Oracle’s cloud offerings, which the company is looking to expand to compete with bigger peers like Microsoft and Amazon.com.
Context: The greenback moved lower on Monday after recording sharp gains last week.
Details: The US dollar index, which measures the greenback’s performance versus a basket of major currencies, fell to its weakest level in around two weeks on Monday. Investors remained on the sidelines ahead of the release of inflation data, which will impact the US Federal Reserve’s next interest rate decision.
The US dollar index declined by around 0.6% to settle at 108.33 on Monday, after jumping to a two-decade high of 110.79 on Wednesday last week.
Markets widely expect the Fed to raise its benchmark rate by 75 basis point at its September policy meeting, following hawkish remarks from the central bank’s Chairman Jerome Powell and other bank officials.
The EUR/USD forex pair jumped to its strongest level since August 17, with ECB officials looking to tighten their monetary policy more aggressively. The shared currency had fallen to a 20-year low of $0.9862 last week. The euro gained over 0.7% to close at $1.0122 on Monday.
The GBP/USD forex pair also recorded gains, following the release of economic data from the UK. The British economy grew by 0.2% in July, versus a 0.6% decline a month ago, while the country’s trade deficit contracted to £7.8 billion in July, from £11.4 billion in June.
The pound rose around 0.8% to settle at $1.1683 on Monday, after hitting a 37-year low last week.
What to watch: Traders await the release of economic data on inflation rate and government budget from the US today. The annual inflation rate in the US, which slowed more than expected to 8.5% in July, is expected to ease further to 8.1% in August. Analysts expect consumer prices to decline 0.2% in August. The US government budget deficit is projected to widen to $250 billion in August, from $211 billion in July.
Other Markets: European trading indices closed higher on Monday, with the FTSE 100, DAX 40, CAC 40 and STOXX Europe 600 up by 1.66%, 2.40%, 1.95% and 1.76%, respectively.
