On The Fly: Top five analyst initiations
Catch up on today's top five analyst initiations with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Salesforce (CRM) initiated with a Hold at Needham by analyst Scott Berg, who cites decelerating organic revenue growth, a looming sales reorganization, and an operating model not profitable enough at its revenue to drive valuation higher. 2. BioCryst (BCRX) initiated with a Buy at Ladenburg by analyst Christopher James, who thinks the company is poised to become a leading oral drug rare disease company. 3. Seaport Global analyst Josh Sullivan started CACI (CACI) International with a Buy rating and $140 price target. The company has broad exposure to trends in fiscal/defense spending, the analyst contends. 4. Citi analyst Walter Pritchard started OpenText (OTEX) with a Neutral rating and $36 price target, stating that the current valuation already reflects the potential of the ECD acquisition. 5. Albireo Pharma (ALBO) initiated with a Buy at Ladenburg. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
