Adobe Inc (NASDAQ: ADBE) stock slipped over 9% on Wednesday to close the day trading at $422.90. The fall happened after the digital mega-company reported its Q1 2022 revenue. However, the segment that indicated the impact of war in Ukraine changed the whole viewpoint of the report.

Consequently, different analysts including Deutsche Bank and Piper Sandler lowered their ADBE price targets. Notably, Deutsche Bank analysts adjusted their price target to $575 from $660, and Piper Sandler to $545 from $600.
