Goldman Sachs’ Heather Bellini maintained a Neutral rating for Adobe Systems Incorporated (NASDAQ: ADBE), while raising the price target from $60 to $64, after the company reported robust 1Q16 results. The analyst believes that there are no near-term catalysts.

Adobe Systems reported 1Q16 revenues of $1.38 billion, up 22 percent year-over-year, driven by the outperformance in Digital Media. The company also reported better-than-expected non-GAAP EPS of $0.66, backed by robust operating margins.
