Jefferies maintained a Hold rating on PAREXEL International (NASDAQ: PRXL), and cut the price target to $64.00 (from $67.00), following the company's announced $200M share repurchase program. 80% (~2.8M shares) will be acquired on 11/23 at $57.51/sh.

Analyst David Windley commented, "PRXL announced that its $200M share repurchase program will be executed by ASR. We estimate $0.03-$0.07 accretion versus prior assumptions. Following the 1Q17 earnings revision due to revenue recognition timing, the ASR provides a needed lift, though it does little to alleviate operational performance concerns. Even accounting for the ASR, we believe guidance is too optimistic."
