What are Wall Street analysts saying about Citrix Systems stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Citrix Systems stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Citrix Systems is a provider of virtualization, networking and cloud computing solutions. The company is benefiting from robust adoption of its Subscription based services. Solid adoption of unified workspace solutions and hybrid cloud offerings is a key catalyst. Traction witnessed by ShareFile is notable. The company also provided an impressive guidance. Efforts to reward shareholders through share buybacks are a positive. Citrix stock has outperformed industry in the past year. Citrix has deployed its Cloud services including XenDesktop and XenApp on Oracle Cloud Marketplace. This is expected to garner new customer additions, consequently generating incremental revenues. Acquisition of Sapho will enable the company to fortify its competitive position in the rapidly growing desktop virtualization market. Buyout of Cedexis is likely to improve company’s operational performance. However, adverse foreign exchange movements remain a headwind." (12/18/2018) 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We think the company is able to achieve this given a strong product offering and a competitive environment stacked in its favor. Our discussions with customers and partners indicate some enthusiasm around improving innovation at the company, and while deployments remain primarily on-premise, commentary suggests evaluations of the cloud product. We see incremental growth over the next couple of years on: 1) $200mm CSS opportunity with the migration likely to be completed in 3Q18; 2) $500mm opportunity further down the road on cloud uptake; though, this is likely to be driven in large part by the installed base vs. net new customers. Some product enhancements could help support sales. The engineering organization appears more streamlined; efficiency gains in the n-t are likely to be reinvested for growth."
