What are Wall Street analysts saying about CA Technologies stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about CA Technologies stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "CA’s Q4 results benefited from higher Mainframe new sales as well as solid demand for its recently launched Trusted Access Manager for Z, a Mainframe solution. However, we note that lower renewals and revenue backlog is a concern. Moreover, management’s fiscal 2019 top-line as well as cash flow guidance failed to impress us. Higher mix of subscription-based sales is likely to hurt revenues. Moreover, decline in the projected cash flow can primarily be attributed to restructuring charges, U.S. tax reform and adoption of ASC 606 revenue standard. Further, an incremental increase in tax will hurt bottom-line. Moreover, intensifying competition from peers and currency headwinds are other concerns. Notably, the stock has underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. Nevertheless, are positive about CA’s acquisition and “go to market” sales strategy, which is likely to help the stock rebound in fiscal 2019." (5/11/2018)
  • 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." (3/20/2018)
  • 3. Mizuho analysts commented, "We expect total revenue of around $1,050-1,055mm (up 3-4% Y/Y) vs. consensus if $1,053mm. For profitability, we expect limited upside to consensus expectations of $0.62 due to n-t integration costs. Click here for our detailed preview and model. Software compare is slightly easier. We note: 1) the company is lapping year- ago software line-item performance of +32% (vs. +55% in F1Q) though this is coming off robust sequential performance in the first quarter; 2) bookings expectations seem reasonable with an easier year-ago and sequential compare (though performance remains tied to large renewals and mgmt. has indicated a softer year for renewals in FY18); 3) likely robust contribution from Automic/ Veracode acquisitions for the quarter until the acquisitions anniversary; and 4) the company is lapping some federal deals in the year-ago quarter."
