Oppenheimer's Ray McDonough increased Paycom's price target to $595 from $500, maintaining an outperform rating on the shares.

Barclays analyst Raimo Lenschow boosted Paycom's price target to $565 from $476 while maintaining an equal weight rating.

Wolfe Research's Alex Zukinkept has an outperform rating on the stock but increased its price target to $550 from $450.

And Piper Sandler analyst Arvind Ramnani increased the price target on Paycom Software to $622 from $472 while maintaining an overweight rating.

Despite the raises, Paycom shares moved in the opposite direction on Wednesday, falling over 7.6%, to $511.15. The stock initially hit a low of $502.94 earlier in the session.
