Nomura Securities maintains a 'Buy' on SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) price target of EUR50.

Nomura analyst, Rick Sherlund, said, "SAP is undergoing a cultural revolution of sorts, following the appointment of new management nearly two years ago, and co-founder Hasso Plattner’s announced intentions to effectively emulate Apple and quicken the pace of innovation. We are now beginning to witness a real change in orientation toward innovation and the quiet unfolding of an ambitious shift in SAP’s future architecture to enable new commercial efforts in the cloud and to become a major player in some additional new markets, including database, infrastructure and mobile markets."

"SAP trades at 14.2x calendar 2012 EPS and 14.2x EV/uFCF, below its 2-yr and 5-yr averages. We see potential for upside to 2012 estimates from new products expected in Q1, including HANA, mobility and SaaS line of business applications. The primary risk is recession in Europe."
