Shares of ValueClick (VCLK, $25.44), a provider of digital marketing solutions,
today are up more than 16% on heavy volume following the release of strong Q4

Per-share earnings of 56 cents topped the consensus estimate by four cents and
revenue rose 13.8% to $199.5 million, above the consensus of $198.2 million.

Earlier in the session, the stock hit a new 52-week high at $26.
Cantor Fitzgerald raises its ValueClick price target to $28 from $23 based on
prospects for faster organic growth and improving margins. The firm points out that
Q4 EBITDA margin of 38.6% easily beat expectations and was nearly at a record

Last week, Goldman Sachs started coverage of ValueClick at ‘Buy’ with a price target
of $25, saying the company is working various growth levers, including increased
spend-per-client via its product integration efforts and higher volumes of display

Goldman thinks the 2011 acquisition of Dotomi, which gave ValueClick expertise in
the high-growth personalized ad re-targeting segment of the market, is now paying
off in the form of new client relationships and talent.
