What are analysts saying about Accenture PLC stock?

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Accenture is one of world’s leading providers of management consultancy, technology and outsourcing services. The stock price has outrperformed the broader market on a year-to-basis basis. We are positive about Accenture’s latest product additions in the analytics application space, given the increasing demand for digital solutions. We also expect Accenture’s investment in digital and marketing capabilities to boost long-term growth. Furthermore, Accenture’s strategy of growing through acquisitions is encouraging. The acquisitions have enabled Accenture to enter new markets, diversify and broaden its product portfolio, and maintain its leading position. However, increasing competition from peers, an uncertain macroeconomic environment and a strained IT spending scenario may deter its growth to some extent." (12/13/2016)

  • Barclays PLC analysts commented, "We trim our revenues and EBITDA by c2%, however net interest costs are an implied c17%, meaning substantial increases to our FCF consumption estimates. Our updated ADR price target of USD 1.00 (was USD 0.65) reflects lowered forecasts but also a 5:1 share conversion with the ADRs linked to the ordinary shares." (3/28/2016)
