Drexel Hamilton maintained their Sell rating on MicroStrategy (NASDAQ: MSTR) and lowered their price target to $80.00 (from $90.00)

Analyst James Gilman said "We have updated our financial model following the release of MicroStrategy’s Form 10-Q for 2Q12. We change our forward estimates based on disclosures contained within the form. We think the top-line miss that occurred in 2Q occurred due to a smaller sales force. During the quarter the company shed 28 sales and marketing heads and has shed a total of 88 sales and marketing heads since the beginning of the year. As we have previously pointed out, revenue scales with headcount."
