What are Wall Street analysts saying about Adobe stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Adobe stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Adobe’s fiscal fourth-quarter revenues were benefited by contributions from Marketo acquisition and strong demand for its creative products. However, higher expenses incurred on acquisitions impacted the bottom line. Nevertheless, Adobe is benefiting from growing subscriptions for its cloud application. It has been making great efforts toward establishing its presence in cloud-related software areas such as documents and marketing. We remain optimistic about Adobe’s market position, compelling product lines, continued innovation, solid adoption of Creative Cloud and Adobe marketing cloud. Notably, the stock has outperformed the industry it belongs to on a year-to-date basis. However, lower end-market demand and exposure to Europe remain overhangs." (12/18/2018) 2. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We highlight Adobe ’s on- going strength in Experience Cloud with revenues up 22% (ex-Marketo) vs. our esti- mate of 20% and 25% including Marketo. We reiterate our buy rating and our price target of $280." (12/16/2018) Has Adobe been receiving favorable news coverage?
