What are Wall Street analysts saying about CA stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about CA stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "CA is benefiting from higher Mainframe new sales. Solid demand for its recently launched Trusted Access Manager for Z, a Mainframe solution, is a tailwind. Additionally, the company’s “go to market” sales strategy integrating the commercial functions of sales, marketing, brand management, pricing and consumer insight, is helping it in lowering costs, thereby improving the bottom line. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s Q2 earnings release. Nonetheless, intensifying competition and currency volatility are headwinds. However, shares have demonstrated solid momentum post Broadcom’s acquisition proposal of $18.90 billion, which is expected to close in the fourth quarter of calendar 2018. The company has mixed record of earnings surprises in recent quarters." (10/8/2018)
  • 2. Credit Suisse Group AG analysts commented, "We hosted several investor meetings with CFO Kieran McGrath, IR Traci Tsuchiguchi and Stefan Putyera. We come away appreciating the company’s opportunity in helping enterprises become “modern software factories.” While nothing material was disclosed, we offer the following highlights: Organic Growth. The company mid-term is solving for low-single-digit revenue and mid-single-digit OCF growth, combined with shareholder-friendly capital allocation. The opportunity to deliver sustainable organic growth is supported by investments in innovation, mix shift to more SaaS and growth-oriented products, and continued journey of execution improvements."
