Autodesk jumps after results

NEW YORK, May 22 (Reuters) - Autodesk Inc ADSK.O shares jumped 16.8 percent to $21.99 in premarket trade on Friday after the engineering software maker posted first-quarter results that topped Wall Street estimates late Thursday and announced new job cuts to save money.

Keybanc subsequently raised its rating on the stock to “hold” from “underweight.”
