What are Wall Street analysts saying about Check Point Software Technologies stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Check Point Software Technologies stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Check Point is benefiting from strong growth in security subscriptions, including advanced threat prevention and CloudGuard suite. The company’s focus on enhancing mobile capabilities is helping it tap greater opportunities. Acquisitions have helped it in broadening its portfolio and enter newer market, which has eventually driven its revenues. The recent buyouts of Dome9 and ForceNock will help expand the company’s security capabilities. Check Point continues to win new customer accounts, which is boosting its revenues. However, Check Point derives a significant portion of total sales from the 10 biggest distributors, giving rise to the risk of customer concentration. Intensifying competition in the cybersecurity market is a concern. Shares have underperformed the industry in the year to date period." (9/30/2019)
  • 2. Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "We view the stable growth profile/capital structure as favorable to value- oriented investors." (7/24/2019)
  • 3. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "We continue to believe, however, growth is likely to be muted in 2019 as evidenced by the ~4% y/y revenue guidance (but likely higher billings growth). Further, management was clear that they intend to continue investing in S&M during 2019, both internally in the form of headcount but also to support partners. This is expected to lead to ~300bps of margin compression for the year." (1/31/2019)
