Teradata falls due to fresh Morgan Stanley downgrade

|About: Teradata Corporation (TDC)|By:, SA News Editor

Less than two months after cutting Teradata (TDC -5.3%) to Equal Weight, Morgan Stanley has downgraded the maker of data warehousing and business intelligence hardware/software to Underweight. The prior downgrade took place after Teradata issued a big Q3/2013 warning.

There have been concerns about the long-term impact the adoption of the increasingly popular Hadoop big data/analytics framework will have on Teradata's traditional warehousing solutions (though some argue it's only a minor threat), as well as about the growth seen by Amazon's Redshift warehousing service since its 2012 launch.
