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, "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. Nonetheless, the company’s ongoing issues related with the changes it made in its U.S. sales force makes us skeptical about the company’s near-term performance. It looks like the recently-joined people are taking more-than-expected time for reaching their full potential. The more its new recruits will take time reaching their full potential, Check Point will have to forego more revenues. The stock has underperformed the industry in the year-to-date period." (6/14/2018)
- 2. BTIG Research analysts commented, "We are maintaining our $24 price target on SABR shares after a solid quarter with EBITDA 5% above consensus and management maintaining FY17 guidance. While no change to ’18E FCF, expected to grow in-line with mid-single-digit revenue growth, we believe a relatively vanilla quarter, with new agency contracts in higher unit economic regions (EMEA/APAC), are now benefiting Travel Network (TN) top- line, indicating management’s transition-plan is materializing. However, visibility into ’19E FCF accelerating is likely needed to materially shift some of the entrenched negative sentiment that exists around shares. Guidance suggests declining Airline solutions revenue near term, but this is largely priced in. Hospitality re-accelerated and commentary suggest mid-teens growth is sustainable. We believe SABR is well- positioned to scale long-term travel technology trends." (11/1/2017)
