    Accenture Shares Gains 8 percent Since Q2 Beat

    Accenture (NYSE:ACN) shares rose nearly 8% since the company’s reported Q2 earnings results last week, with EPS of $2.69 coming in better than the Street estimate of $2.49. Revenue was $15.8 billion, beating the Street estimate of $15.61 billion.
    Reflecting lower anticipated FX headwinds, but a tightening of local-currency revenue growth towards the lower end of the prior range, management maintained the midpoint of its 2023 reported revenue guidance and adjusted operating margin targets, while increasing its EPS guidance.
    The company expects 2023 EPS in the range of $11.41-$11.63, compared to the Street estimate of $11.45. Full-year revenue growth is expected in the range of 8% to 10% in local currency and a foreign-exchange impact of negative 4.5%.
    Furthermore, the company announced its plans to lay off about 19,000 people, or approximately 2.5% of its total global workforce.
