Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Acxiom stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Acxiom provides solutions that make it easier for marketers to deliver relevant messages at scale and tie those messages back to actual results. Acxiom is gaining on robust performance from the Connectivity segment. With continued solid contributions from company’s primary offering of LiveRamp and IdentityLink, the company is striving to improve the functionality of its products across all channels and devices. The company also announced partnership with technology firm Adobe Systems to offer an integrated marketing program for its clients which will add another feather in Acxiom’s cap. Moreover, expanding customer base is significantly positive in our view. Nevertheless, 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 in the past year." (2/6/2018)

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)."

Acxiom (NASDAQ:ACXM) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
