Canaccord Genuity raised their price target on Aspen Technology (NASDAQ: AZPN) from $28 to $32 following what they called an "excellent quarter."

The analyst comments: "Aspen produced another excellent quarter as LTCV growth accelerated into the mid-teens and FCF blew away consensus. This kind of predictably solid execution is becoming the standard for AZPN and investors are taking notice. As a result, we believe the stock is steadily inching towards a sustainable 20x forward FCF multiple, which if we are correct, would drive the shares into the low-$30s over the next 12 months."
