Jefferies maintains a 'Buy' on Medidata Solutions (NASDAQ: MDSO) price target of $41.00 (from $34.00).

Analyst, David Windley, said, "MDSO signed a large "strategic" deal in 2Q. At maturity (24-36 months away), this deal should generate 3-4x the revenue this "top-10 pharma" client currently contributes. Management said it is in similar talks with other biopharmas, and believes similar deals can follow (timing unpredictable). Competitive displacements and up/cross-selling also continued at a record pace. MDSO's revenue growth outlook is bright."

FY12 EPS estimate cut from $1.14 to $1.12 and FY13 from $1.45 to $1.44.
