Benchmark maintains a 'Buy' on Equinix (NASDAQ: EQIX) price target of $200.00 (from $170.00).

Analyst, Clayton F. Moran, said, "The company reiterated its forecast to achieve free cash flow next year and its goal to reach $3 billion in annual revenue by 2015 with an EBITDA margin around 50%. Equinix did not say anything meaningful about 2Q12 and 2012 guidance or the possible REIT conversion. We do not view this event as a positive catalyst for the stock. But we do believe the stock will go higher over the next 12 months and raise our price target to $200 per share. Our new target is based on 14x 2012E EBITDA, comparable to peers Digital Realty and Telecity."
