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, driven by strong demand for cloud, mobile and zero-day advanced threat prevention technologies. 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. However, Check Point expects first-quarter 2019 margins to be under pressure due to the expenses for Dome9 buyout, and the recent buyout of ForceNock. The company 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 past year." (4/11/2019)
  • 2. 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)
