Enterprise software maker Oracle Corporation ( ORCL ) on Tuesday saw its price target boosted by analysts at FBR Capital Markets.

The firm said it maintained its "Outperform" rating on ORCL and raised its price target from $36 to $38. That new target implies a 13% upside to the stock's Friday closing price of $33.68.

An FBR analyst commented, "We believe Oracle's newly introduced optimized systems (Exadata and Exalogic) represent a major growth pillar. We think Oracle's ability to deliver a comprehensive systems stack, coupled with its incumbent status, position the company well to capture a large and untapped opportunity-one that could be as much as $10 billion annually. Based on our customer checks, we believe Exadata momentum is just building in the field."

Oracle shares fell 20 cents, or -0.6%, in premarket trading Tuesday.
