Total revenue was up 14% from last year to $1.32 billion while operating margins were "strong" at 25.2% and gross margins of 82.3% mark a record fiscal first-quarter high.Management reinstated its full-year revenue outlook of $8.265 billion to $8.415 billion, partially driven by Small Business customer acquisition returning to pre-COVID levels. Unless there are new rounds of shutdowns, the company should be able to achieve its guidance while a vaccine and possible stimulus could generate significant upside.Related Link: 10 Biggest Price Target Changes For FridayMorgan Stanley: 'Feeling Better'Intuit's report was strong enough to suggest the company has a durable path to generate at least 20% EPS growth, Weiss wrote in a note. Management displayed a positive tone related to the resiliency of its Small Business platform and the fiscal second quarter should mark a trough for the segment.Management's full-year guidance was based on expectations for 9% to 10% growth in the Consumer Segment and 110 basis points of operating margin expansion. Coupled with the margins beat in the reported quarter at 25.2%, the analyst is "feeling better" about margins moving forward.KeyBanc: Bullish Case Reaffirmed The bullish case for Intuit's stock was reinforced after the company's "across the board" earnings beat, Beck said. Most notably, the SMB segment showed resiliency and was helped by a rebound in online services.Management expressed a confident tone in the Credit Karma deal and it should close by the end of the year. Encouragingly, potential synergy gains from Credit Karma aren't included in management's 2021 outlook.Piper: What The Bulls And Bears Like Exiting Intuit's report, bulls are focused on three key takeaways, Ramnani wrote in a note. These include: * Average revenue per customer (ARPC) growth remains one of management's top priorities * The Online ecosystem revenue grew 24% year-over-year despite lapping the impact of last year's price increase * The mid-market SMB offerings should continue gaining traction from product innovation like integrated CRM solutions.On the other hand, bears are focusing on these three takeaways: * Credit Karma is likely to be dilutive to EPS through fiscal 2022 * A $40 million legal settlement in the quarter is "nominal" but the company faces another $400 million in arbitration fees over the coming quarters * Retention dip continued from small business failures.INTU Price Action: Shares of Intuit were trading lower by 3% Friday morning at $351.31.Latest Ratings for INTU DateFirmActionFromTo Nov 2020Credit SuisseMaintainsOutperform Nov 2020Morgan StanleyMaintainsOverweight Nov 2020Piper SandlerMaintainsOverweight View More Analyst Ratings for INTU View the Latest Analyst RatingsSee more from Benzinga * Click here for options trades from Benzinga * Restaurants Fight Back Against Lockdowns: The 'Convenient Scapegoat' * A Look At Mars' Latest Acquisition: Kind Bars(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.
