Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) had its neutral rating reiterated by analysts at Citigroup Inc.. Citigroup Inc. currently has a $82.00 price target on the stock, up from their previous price target of $81.43.

Adobe Systems (NASDAQ:ADBE) had its neutral rating reissued by analysts at Zacks. Zacks currently has a $70.00 target price on the stock. Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Adobe’s first quarter earnings exceeded the Zacks Consensus Estimate on strong adoption of the Creative Cloud. Additionally, management provided encouraging first quarter revenue guidance. We remain optimistic about Adobe s market position, compelling product lines, continued innovation, acquisitions and its strong balance sheet. However, the transition to the subscription model will hurt Adobe’s revenue growth in the short term. Also, end-market recovery appears slow which remain a matter of concern. We are therefore, reiterating our Neutral rating.”

Analog Devices (NYSE:ADI) had its outperform rating reaffirmed by analysts at Macquarie. The firm currently has a $60.00 price target on the stock, up from their previous price target of $55.00.

Analog Devices (NYSE:ADI) had its buy rating reissued by analysts at Jefferies Group. They currently have a $64.00 target price on the stock, up from their previous target price of $60.00.

Artisan Partners Asset Management (NASDAQ:APAM) had its buy rating reiterated by analysts at Citigroup Inc.. The firm currently has a $65.00 price target on the stock, down from their previous price target of $72.00.

Avis Budget Group (NYSE:CAR) had its hold rating reiterated by analysts at Deutsche Bank. The firm currently has a $58.00 target price on the stock, up from their previous target price of $53.00.

The Chubb (NYSE:CB) had its neutral rating reaffirmed by analysts at Zacks. They currently have a $99.00 price target on the stock. Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Despite facing catastrophe losses during the first quarter, Chubb did not disappoint investors with its earnings, and managed to report in line with the estimate. Howerver, we expect strong earnings over the long term given the company’s superior franchise network and a significant presence in its niche market. Chubb’s Commercial insurance segment has been consistently reporting favorable earnings led by a renewal rate that has increase in the past several quarters. The retention ratio stands at a stable level. Chubb’s Personal Insurance segment is also witnessing a gradual market improvement. Moreover, Chubb’s international business has been performing strongly and is a key to its future growth. Moreover, the company’s disciplined capital management strategy which includes regular share buyback and dividend payment will aid the bottom line. We thus maintain our Neutral recommendation on the stock.”

CNOOC Ltd (NYSE:CEO) had its neutral rating reaffirmed by analysts at Zacks. The firm currently has a $181.00 target price on the stock. Zacks’ analyst wrote, “We are maintaining our Neutral recommendation on CNOOC Ltd. Although the company reported stable revenues in the first quarter, we are less bullish on the near term due to cascading realizations, a flattish production outlook for 2014 and the absence of catalysts. CNOOC’s growth profile should get a boost over the next 3 to 5 years from numerous development projects from offshore China, international growth from recent acquisitions, and intensive exploration and development programs with its partners. Furthermore, the February acquisition of Canadian energy producer Nexen Inc. brought CNOOC substantial reserves in the Canadian oil sands.”

Covance (NYSE:CVD) had its neutral rating reaffirmed by analysts at Zacks. Zacks currently has a $92.00 target price on the stock. Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Covance reported a strong first-quarter 2014, with adjusted EPS of $0.90, which was up 20.0% year over year and remained in line with the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Revenues were up 5.0% at $666.2 million, ahead of the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $646 million. Despite increased spending on strategic IT projects, Late-Stage Development continues to grow strongly on the back of better-than-estimated kit volumes in central laboratories and strong performance of Phase II-IV clinical development services. Moreover, after several quarters of drag, Early Development started showing signs of recovery with improvement in clinical pharmacology and toxicology. Although capital spending environment and competitive landscape remain as overhangs, we believe Covance is positioned well to drive growth in the coming quarters. Currently, we are Neutral on the stock.”

Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) had its buy rating reissued by analysts at Deutsche Bank. The firm currently has a $48.00 price target on the stock, up from their previous price target of $40.00.

Dollar General Corp. (NYSE:DG) had its neutral rating reiterated by analysts at Zacks. Zacks currently has a $65.00 target price on the stock.

Diodes (NASDAQ:DIOD) had its outperform rating reaffirmed by analysts at Raymond James. The firm currently has a $33.00 target price on the stock, up from their previous target price of $30.00.

Envision Healthcare Holdings (NASDAQ:EVHC) had its buy rating reiterated by analysts at Deutsche Bank. Deutsche Bank currently has a $37.00 price target on the stock, up from their previous price target of $35.00.

Exelon (NYSE:EXC) had its neutral rating reiterated by analysts at Macquarie. They currently have a $37.00 target price on the stock, up from their previous target price of $34.00.

Ferrellgas Partners (NYSE:FGP) had its underweight rating reissued by analysts at JPMorgan Chase & Co.. They currently have a $21.00 target price on the stock, up from their previous target price of $20.00.

Ferrellgas Partners (NYSE:FGP) had its neutral rating reissued by analysts at Zacks. The firm currently has a $28.00 target price on the stock. Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Ferrellgas Partners’ earnings per unit in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. As the heating season was primarily concentrated in third quarter, failure of other providers helped the partnership to add new customers. However, Ferrellgas Partners failed to surpass the Zacks Consensus Estimate in the last four quarters. Rising input costs are eating into the margins of the partnership and affecting profitability. The partnership has the capability to turn the tide with the contribution from the acquired assets, but going by present performance it will be some time before it actually starts to exceed market expectations. Besides, over-dependence on a small number of propane suppliers and strong competition from other energy sources might pose further challenges for Ferrellgas Partners. Thus, we maintain our Neutral recommendation on the stock.”

L.B. Foster (NASDAQ:FSTR) had its neutral rating reaffirmed by analysts at Zacks. They currently have a $57.00 price target on the stock. Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Foster reported disappointing results for the first quarter of 2014, with year-over-year decline in earnings as well as revenues. Earnings decreased 27% to $0.35 per share while revenues slipped 14% to $111.4 million. Exiting the quarter, backlog in the Tubular and Construction Products segments increased year over year while declined for the Rail segment. For the quarters ahead, management anticipates to benefit from a favorable business environment, which will lead to a rise in sales and earnings. Also, we believe that the acquisition of Ball Winch will prove beneficial for the company and add to its inorganic growth. However, the presence of many players in the industry endangers the company’s growth prospects. Based on these factors, we prefer to have a balanced view on the stock with a Neutral recommendation.”

IntercontinentalExchange (NYSE:ICE) had its overweight rating reiterated by analysts at JPMorgan Chase & Co.. The firm currently has a $224.00 price target on the stock, down from their previous price target of $232.00.

Investment Technology Group (NYSE:ITG) had its overweight rating reaffirmed by analysts at JPMorgan Chase & Co.. They currently have a $23.00 price target on the stock, down from their previous price target of $24.00.

InterMune (NASDAQ:ITMN) had its overweight rating reissued by analysts at JPMorgan Chase & Co.. The firm currently has a $51.00 price target on the stock, up from their previous price target of $45.00.

LaSalle Hotel Properties (NYSE:LHO) had its outperform rating reaffirmed by analysts at Raymond James. Raymond James currently has a $37.00 price target on the stock, up from their previous price target of $35.00.

NGL Energy Partners (NYSE:NGL) had its outperform rating reiterated by analysts at Raymond James. Raymond James currently has a $46.00 price target on the stock, up from their previous price target of $42.00.

Children's Place Retail Stores (NASDAQ:PLCE) had its buy rating reissued by analysts at Citigroup Inc.. The firm currently has a $59.00 target price on the stock, up from their previous target price of $56.00.

Quality Systems (NASDAQ:QSII) had its neutral rating reiterated by analysts at Zacks. They currently have a $17.00 price target on the stock. Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Quality Systems continue to report a fall in earnings and revenues. In the recently completed fiscal year, the company’s earnings plunged 40.0% while revenues fell 3.4%. In the fiscal fourth quarter, adjusted earnings per share of $0.11 also missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by $0.05 but revenues of $115.2 million rose 3.5% and beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by roughly $3 million. However, we are optimistic about Quality Systems given the continued strength in its NextGen division as well as the expected benefit from its Mirth acquisition. As such, we continue with our Neutral recommendation on Quality Systems and set a target price of $17.00.”

Sabra Health Care REIT (NASDAQ:SBRA) had its neutral rating reissued by analysts at Citigroup Inc.. The firm currently has a $28.00 price target on the stock, up from their previous price target of $25.00.

Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) had its neutral rating reiterated by analysts at Zacks. The firm currently has a $79.00 price target on the stock. Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Though Starbucks could only meet the Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings and missed the same for revenues in the second quarter of fiscal 2014, its strong comps despite severe winter conditions caught investors’ attention. Moreover, Starbucks raised its full-year earnings outlook and expressed a bullish overall tone based on the healthy first-half performance. Overall, we are encouraged by Starbucks’ strong global retail footprint, successful food/beverage innovations, impressive loyalty program and digital offerings, rapid growth in international markets and solid turnaround in Europe. Moreover, La Boulange, Evolution Fresh, Teavana, and K-Cups innovations offer compelling long-term growth drivers. However, difficult consumer spending environment in the U.S., macro challenges in Europe and rising commodity costs keep us on the sidelines.”
