What are analysts saying about Acxiom Corporation stock?

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

  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "Third-largest ID graph in people-based marketing; deterministic recognition. The LiveRamp/Connectivity business aims to be the power grid for data connectivity in the marketing ecosystem (both on and offline) and a go-to source for deterministic recognition (down to the unique ID/person who uses x devices determined by authentication/log-in information)." (9/22/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Acxiom's first-quarter fiscal 2018 results were disappointing. The company missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate on both lines. Revenues also declined due to weakness in the marketing services segment. Management now expects slower bookings in the  marketing services and pricing model changes in the audience solutions segment to hurt top-line growth. We note that the company operates in a competitive landscape that is becoming more complex with low barriers to entry. Notably, the stock has underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. Nevertheless, with continued solid contributions from LiveRamp, the company is striving to improve the functionality of its products across all channels and devices. The newly launched IdentityLink is an important product addition, which improves company's growth prospects. Moreover, expanding customer base is signficantly positive in our view." (8/8/2017)
  • 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)
