According to Zacks Investment Research, "Adobe’s second-quarter results benefitted from strong demand for the company’s innovative solutions and growing subscriptions for its cloud application. It has outperformed the industry it belongs to in the last one year. Adobe has been making great efforts toward establishing its presence in cloud-related software areas such as documents and marketing. Adobe Experience Manager, which enables brands to offer a personalized experience, is also witnessing robust growth. We remain optimistic about Adobe’s market position, compelling product lines, continued innovation, solid adoption of Creative Cloud and Adobe marketing cloud.
