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 creative products continue to drive its top-line growth. The company is currently benefiting from strong demand for its innovative solutions and growing subscriptions for its cloud application. 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. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s Q4 earnings release. The company has positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. 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." (12/12/2018) 2. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We believe Adobe’s Artifi- cial Intelligence/Machine Learning framework, Sensei, has already begun to drive val- ue expansion across all product lines, and this will drive more value than is currently priced into the stock. Further, the company’s other strategic efforts to (1) target non – professionals and (2) offer its flagship products on tablet/mobile devices through part- nerships with OEMs like Apple, Inc. (AAPL: Buy) and Microsoft (MSFT: NR) nicely com- plement the new Sensei features and will drive a larger mix of subscription revenue, in our view." (10/21/2018) 3.
