Outperform
Baird cautious on Accenture heading into earnings
Baird analyst David Koning said he is cautious on Accenture shares heading into the company's Q3 earnings report. The analyst cited its current roughly 37% premium to the S&P, which is near its three-year high. The analyst believes Q3 will be pretty solid but he sees 2019 earnings guidance biased lower due to foreign exchange and its tax rate. In addition, with unemployment around historical lows, wage rates may be under pressure. Koning reiterated his Outperform rating and $165 price target on Accenture but said he can see the shares falling to the low $150s following the earnings report.

Accenture downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Jason Kupferberg downgraded Accenture to Neutral from Buy citing valuation following share outperformance over the past 12 months and maintained a $171 price target. Kupferberg is also concerned that Accenture's constant-currency growth has peaked, making further multiple expansion challenging.

Market Perform
Accenture price target raised to $170 from $158 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Keith Bachman raised his price target on Accenture to $170 after its Q3 earnings beat and raised FY18 outlook, saying he was impressed with the company's "broad-based revenue growth and strong signings", even though margins were "a touch weaker than expected". Bachman expects adverse FX to start to weigh on Accenture results going forward, but still sees constant-currency revenue growth in the 9%-10% range. The analyst keeps his Market Perform rating on shares, citing "elevated valuation".

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Rexford Industrial (REXR) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at DA Davidson with analyst Barry Oxford saying over the last 18 month the stock has risen nearly 35%, the most in the industrial group. 2. C&J Energy Services (CJ) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo with analyst Judson Bailey saying Downside risk for completion activity over the next few quarters and negative pricing and demand data points already rolling in for pressure pumping create risk to consensus estimates. 3. Tenet (THC) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies with analyst Brian Tanquilut saying the stock is fairly valued after rallying 128% year-to-date. 4. Accenture (ACN) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Jason Kupferberg citing valuation following share outperformance over the past 12 months. 5. Diageo (DEO) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Bernstein with analyst Trevor Stirling saying that while its share price has had a "great" 12 months and he has seen sustained improvements in the same period, "this is almost as good as it gets." This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
