Bachman boosted his price target for ADBE stock to $640 from $600 while reaffirming the stock’s Buy rating.

Moving on, Jefferies analyst Brent Thill reaffirmed a Buy rating and also raised the price target on Adobe to $660 from $600. Thill expects Adobe to have benefited from a healthier demand environment during the quarter. Moreover, the analyst sees ADBE to be reasonably valued despite a year-to-date rally of over 60%.
