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 benefitting from strong growth in security subscriptions. The company’s focus on enhancing mobile capabilities is helping it tap greater opportunities. Furthermore, the company’s strategy of growing through acquisitions is praiseworthy. The rapid adoption of its data center appliances and continuous enhancements in data center product lines is tailwind for its top line. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s Q3 earnings release. The company has positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. Nonetheless, the company derives a significant portion of total sales from the 10 biggest distributors, giving rise to the risk of customer concentration. The stock has underperformed the industry year-to-date." (10/1/2018) 2. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "We believe execution issues and attrition within the Americas sales force is the main cause of the deceleration though the company may continue to see incremental competitive share loss. On the most recent earnings call, management noted making changes to the sales force starting in 2Q17 with the expectation of changes continuing into 2Q18. Our checks this quarter were mixed in terms of partner feedback on this issue; some saw improvement in the sales force while others saw the status quo maintained."
