UPDATE: Deutsche Bank Reiterates Buy Rating, Raises PT on Adobe Systems
In a report published Friday, Deutsche Bank reiterated its Buy rating on Adobe Systems (NASDAQ: ADBE), and raised its price target from $40.00 to $45.00.
Deutsche Bank noted, “Adobe reported revenue of $1.153b vs us/Street at $1.1b and EPS of $0.61, which was inline with us/Street at $0.61/$0.57. The quarter was impacted by $98m due to continuing shift to subscription/ratable revenue along with a $13.7m FX headwind. Making these adjustments, organic revenue would have been 8%, same as in 3Q12, but slightly lower than 14% in 4Q11. Recall that the company has been willingly reducing revenue of the LiveCycle business. The early adoption metrics of the Creative Cloud by individuals and teams are compelling. We are encouraged by the company's prospects to navigate through this transition. Reiterate Buy and $45PT (up from $40).”
Adobe Systems closed on Thursday at $35.53.
