Oracle (Nasdaq: ORCL) will report Q2 earnings on Tuesday, December 18th, after the market close. Wall Street estimates call EPS of $0.61 on for revenue of $9.03 billion. Analysts at Jefferies think Oracle is likely to report in line, though they are projecting revenue that is below the Street at $8.95 billion.

"Overall our field work was encouraging on the main products within engineered systems, OK for core technologies, and we think Fusion Apps remain a slow burn," said analyst Ross MacMillan.

Bigger picture, MacMillian thinks the company will continue to face growth headwinds to its business, but he said valuation was "incrementally attractive".

Jefferies maintained a Hold rating on Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL) and raised its price target to $34.00 (from $32.00).
