Compass Point upgraded MICROS Systems (NASDAQ: MCRS) from Neutral to Buy with a price target of $50.00.

The firm comments, "We are upgrading our rating from Neutral to Buy. Our price target remains $50. Our estimates are unchanged. In May the shares traded around $58. Yesterday the shares closed near $43. That's down about 26%, albeit from a lofty valuation. The current price is now barely above the 52 week low of $42.95. In our view, the pullback is related to near-term issues and represents a disconnect from long-term fundamentals. Specifically, today's price appears to reflect the modest +1.4% organic revenue growth reported in 1Q'FY'13 related to (1) uncertainty surrounding the election, (2) reduced growth rates in EMEA, and (3) the effect of the Olympics in the UK - all of which are not recurring - in addition to other factors like the Fiscal Cliff rather than on the potential earnings power of management's FY'16 $2 billion revenue target. Accordingly, we now recommend the shares."
