Accenture reports deals for hardware engineering firm, software company

Accenture announced it has made two moves to expand its Industry X.0 practice. The company acquired hardware engineering firm Mindtribe and entered into an agreement to buy smart embedded software company Pillar Technology. "The two acquisitions will significantly boost Accenture's ability to help companies redefine smart connected software and physical products as the lines blur between the physical and digital world," the company said. The Mindtribe acquisition has been completed. Completion of the acquisition of Pillar is subject to customary closing conditions. Financial terms for both transactions were not disclosed.

DOWNGRADE

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.

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".

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.
