What are Wall Street analysts saying about Accenture stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Accenture stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Accenture has been steadily gaining traction in its outsourcing and consulting businesses. The company has been strategically enhancing its cloud and digital marketing suite through acquisitions and partnerships, thereby affecting its share price, which has outperformed its industry in the past year.. The company’s strong operating cash flow has helped it reward its shareholders in the form of dividends and share repurchases, and pursue opportunities in areas that show true potential. Accenture is currently a global leader in the Salesforce implementation service space. However, Accenture continues to face pricing pressure due to significant competition from strong companies like Genpact, Cognizant and Infosys. Global presence exposes Accenture to foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. Buyout-related integration risks is a concern." (9/9/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We maintain our Overweight rating on Accenture and our PT of $193. The company, in our view, is positioned to continue to post solid growth in Digital services, an important contributor to aggregate growth. The “New” includes Digital plus Cloud and Security and has been growing by close to 30% annually to over half of revenues. The prior period (4QFY18) saw double-digit constant currency (cc) growth for the fourth quarter in a row, with strength in the Tech vertical and across all verticals. Investor focus for the quarter will be on FY19 guidance updates and recent acquisitions." (12/13/2018)
