Jefferies analyst Brent Thill upgraded Citrix Systems (NASDAQ: CTXS) from Hold to Buy with a price target of $180.00 (from $150.00).

The analyst cited three catalysts:

1) work-from-anywhere is here to stay which is a powerful shift to capitalize on;

2) Street's +4% CY21rev growth is too low; we see high single-digit growth potential supported by a proprietary survey + have increased confidence in the CY22 $10 FCF/share goal;

3) CTXS trades toward the bottom-end of its 13-18x FCF range; we see room for expansion (ORCL/VMWat 19x/18x, ADBE/ADSK at 34x/29x).
