Adobe: Q2 Was Good, But Needs Revenue Acceleration To Drive Further Upside


  • Adobe reported its Q2 FY24 earnings where revenue and earnings grew 11% and 11.9% YoY respectively, beating estimates as it drove robust innovation across its solution suites.
  • Aside from a suite of AI features, it also rolled its Firefly Services and Custom Models into general availability to drive monetization from its enterprise customers as they deepen adoption across use cases.
  • However, the company is likely to face growing competition from Canva as they look to capture a share of Adobe’s enterprise segment from its latest product launches at its annual event.
  • Although I believe that the company is well positioned to reach its $30B revenue target given its product roadmap and competitive positioning, its current valuation looks capped.
  • Therefore, in order for the stock to gain substantial upside from its current levels, Adobe has to showcase revenue acceleration. Till then, I will rate it a “hold”.
