07:14 EDTACNAccenture should be bought on any weakness, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo expects Accenture to report in-line Q4 results but believes that its initial FY15 guidance could come in below expectations, partly due to reduced IT spending this year by some enterprises. However, the firm still thinks that the company has "the most admirable" IT services business" and recommends buying the stock on any near-term weakness caused by a guidance miss. It keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.
