UBS maintains a 'Neutral' on MicroStrategy (NASDAQ: MSTR) price target raised from $140 to $150.

Analyst, Brent Thill, said, "MSTR put up healthy 37% license growth, beating the St’s total revenue estimate by $5M. However MSTR’s beat did not flow down to EPS, meeting the St’s OPM and missing EPS by $0.04 due to increased h/c. We are fine tuning our CY12 license growth to 19% from 12% to reflect Q1’s healthy demand and are now modelling 16% total rev growth vs. our old 13% estimate. Comps for Q2 and the rest of the year look easy now, ranging from 14-22% vs. the 50%+ hurdles they faced the last two Q’s. Despite the blemishes, we believe MSTR will trade up on healthy Q1 demand."
