A Bizarro Market Reaction to Oracle

The following Estimated Earnings and Return Calculator is based on the consensus of 41 analysts reporting to Standard & Poor's Capital IQ that forecast Oracle's five-year earnings growth rate of 11.5% per annum. Based on what I heard in the conference call, I believe these estimates could be conservatively stated. Nevertheless, they imply double-digit returns, including dividends for Oracle shareholders over the intermediate to long-term future.

Summary and Conclusions: Based on fundamentals, I believe Oracle was undervalued prior to its third quarter 2013 conference call on March 20. After what I consider to be a rather "Bizarro" reaction on Wall Street, I feel the stock has moved into a compelling long-term buying range.

I can't believe that such a small miss would create such a hugely negative reaction. In my logical world, I believe buying low in order to sell higher later is the more logical action over the opposite that is currently taking place.
