The shares of cloud software concern Workday Inc (NASDAQ:WDAY) are on the rise this morning, last seen up 8.6% at $267.61, following a blowout earnings report. The firm posted profits of $1.23 for its second quarter after the close last night, easily topping analysts' estimates, while its revenue also bested analysts' expectations. Workday's subscriber revenue growth, meanwhile, grew by 19.5%, leading the company to hike its guidance for the year.

Analysts are responding in turn. No less than 10 analysts lifted their price targets, the highest coming from Stifel to $320 from $275. Sentiment surrounding WDAY was already strong heading into today, with 20 of the 24 in coverage calling WDAY a "buy" or better.
