What are analysts saying about Check Point Software Technologies stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Check Point Software Technologies stock:

  • Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "Prior to the market open on Thursday, January 19, Check Point Software Technologies released 4Q16 results that came in meaningfully ahead of Street expectations across all major financial metrics. Strong demand for Check Point's new family of appliances (which now makes up >85% of appliance revenue) persisted through Q4, driving a sequential acceleration in software blades revenue growth and a sequential re-acceleration in appliance revenue growth, a metric that both we and the Street expected to decelerate during the period. However, it remains unclear the degree to which new customer acquisitions have contributed to this growth (the company has not provided any specific data regarding this), leading us to conservatively conclude that this growth in newer appliances is being sourced primarily from existing customers transitioning away from legacy deployments. Additionally, management noted that while its utilization of discounting on maintenance contracts slowed to a degree during the period, it did continue through year-end, a trend that we believe could limit growth in maintenance revenues through 1H17, at a minimum. We reiterate our Hold rating but are raising our target price to $94 on common shares of Check Point." (1/20/2017)
  • Instinet analysts commented, "Check Point announced 4Q'16 results, with billings growth of 12% yoy, above our estimate and above the 7% growth in the September quarter on a tougher yoy compare. We continue to have longer-term concerns about competitive pressures in the network security market, but we believe Check Point will be able to continue to report yoy billings growth in the mid- to high-single-digit range given its large and sticky installed base as well as its ability to be a fast follower of new security trends. We maintain our Buy rating on an attractive uFCF yield of near 9% on CY'18E numbers. FY17E EPS from $5.01 to $5.25; FY18E EPS from $5.55 to $5.85." (1/20/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Check Point is a provider of information technology (IT) security solutions across the world. The stock price has outperformed the broader market over the last six months. The outperformance can be attributed to upward estimate revisions. Going forward, we believe that the rapid adoption of Check Point’s data center appliances and continuous enhancements in data center product lines will provide ample support to its top line. The company’s focus on enhancing mobile capabilities will aid it to tap greater larger opportunities. Furthermore, Check Point’s strategy of growing through acquisitions is praiseworthy."
