Piper Jaffray Upgrades Ask Jeeves


Piper Jaffray upgrades Ask Jeeves (ASKJ) to outperform from market perform.

Analyst Safa Rashtchy says research and a just-released study by Keynote System, show that Ask Jeeves is gaining most in increased customer satisfaction and suggests strongly that Ask Jeeves is not only remaining a meaningful search alternative, but gaining faster than most peers.

He notes his latest search usage index suggests the company had the highest gain among other search engines, with an 18% sequential rise in usage. He would be aggressive buyers of Ask Jeeves ahead of Yahoo's earnings per share release next week, which is likely to set a trend for growth expectations in the search market.

Rashtchy ups his 95 cents 2005 GAAP earnings per share to 99 cents and his $32 target to $40.
