NetSuite (N +2.6%) rallies on an upgrade to Buy from Lazard, which sees the cloud business app/e-commerce software maker's sales investments translating into additional "beat and raise" quarters. Goldman downgraded NetSuite last Friday on valuation grounds. Q4 results are due on Jan. 31.

    "Beat and Raise" quarters with Non-GAAP earnings is as easy to do as being a hack analyst from Lazard.

    Yeah, five days (and just one business day) after Goldman downgraded N to neutral and pulled it off its Conviction Buy list, citing valuation, Lazard is going the other way. This on a stock with a F P/E of 219.68! Lazard's willingness to push N which has a F P/E of 219.68, strongly reminds me of Akman's and Einhorn's self-interested efforts to sour investor's on HLF, which both had been heavily shorting.
