Can TIBCO earnings finally explode higher?
Analysts have reined in their expectations about Tibco Software Inc. (NASDAQ:TIBX) earnings in recent months, reducing their August-quarter estimates by $0.03 per share and their full-year projections by $0.05 per share. The stock has turned things around somewhat, rising 15% since mid-June.

Despite the share-price gain, TIBCO hasn’t consistently put up the results that investors want to see from its operations. In its May quarter, the company reported sales that were down almost 1%, and earnings tumbled much more dramatically. Falling licensing revenue caused GAAP net income to drop by two-thirds from year-ago levels, and even on an adjusted basis, the more-than-30% decline in earnings shows the difficulty that TIBCO has had maximizing its profitability.

But Tibco Software Inc. (NASDAQ:TIBX) still has plenty of potential to turn things around. The big data movement has picked up steam recently, as businesses collect increasing amounts of information and need guidance in analyzing it. With this rise in the amount of data, TIBCO has a big competitive advantage from the speed of its analytical tools. Even giants International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM) and Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL) haven’t been able to duplicate the performance of TIBCO’s technology, despite their having identified the value of the overall big data trend and used their extensive customer networks to build a big presence in the segment.
