What are analysts saying about Acxiom stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Acxiom stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Acxiom has emerged as a formidable player in the field of marketing services and technology over the years. With continued solid contributions from LiveRamp, the company is striving to improve the functionality of its products across all channels and devices. This was evident from the recently announced fourth-quarter fiscal 2017 results. The newly launched IdentityLink is an important product addition, which improves company's growth prospects. However, the company operates in a competitive landscape that is becoming more complex with low barriers to entry. Moreover, weakness in the marketing services segment remains a concern. Notably, the stock has underperformed the Zacks categorized IT Services market on a year-to-date basis." (5/19/2017)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We reiterate our Overweight rating and raise our PT to $33. Acxiom once again reported solid F3Q17 results, reflecting continued business momentum, expanding margins across the board, and solid execution. Notably mgt tightened its FY17 revenue outlook toward the high end of the previous range, increased its EPS guidance, and pointed to a continuation of this momentum/progress in FY18, including acceleration of the Connectivity business. We are increasing our PT to $33, from $32, reflecting solid results and persistent mix shift toward faster growing/higher-margin Connectivity and Audience Solutions businesses." (2/1/2017)
  • 3. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "With GOOGL better incorporating 1st party CRM data via Customer Match, Search is becoming a much more attractive use case for LiveRamp, and a potential boost to SMB client growth. The Gross Media Spend transition is going a little faster than expected (which is fine), but more importantly, there is no change in our view on LiveRamp's 50%+ growth; while it should ease in F2018, the Connectivity segment should see reported growth accelerate as the GMS issue ends. Next major catalyst: the annual customer conference, RampUp on March 6-7." (2/1/2017)
