What are analysts saying about CommVault Systems stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about CommVault Systems stock:

  • 1. Mizuho analysts commented, "We expect software revenues of $72-74mm (+14-17% Y/Y) vs. consensus of $72mm while total revenues could come in around $160-164mm (up 5-8% Y/Y or down 2-4% Q/Q) vs. consensus of $160mm. For profitability, we think consensus margin/ EPS expectations of around 9%/$0.19 are reasonable. Billings estimates of $160mm (implying no sequential DR growth) could be conservative; that said, CFFO expectations of $34mm could be slightly on the higher end, though, still achievable. Click here for our detailed preview and model. Checks suggest ongoing large deal momentum. Our conversations indicate that the competitive environment remains tilted in CVLT’s favor, with some displacements of Veritas during the quarter. On discounting, Dell-EMC remains aggressive; however, CVLT continues to exercise price discipline, in our view, with incremental discounting to compete for the largest deals." (7/24/2017)

  • 3. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "Although Commvault's F2018 EBIT margin (%) outlook results in downward / tempered earnings est., and we think the implied slower billings growth will be a focus (guide implies +4% y/y in F4Q17), we continue to believe the following as positive: 1.) Continued positive funnel / pipeline commentary; we believe Commvault's views F4Q17 license rev. est. are reasonable factors in conservative funnel closure rates on expanding large deal opportunities, 2.) Commvault's competitive positioning and asset scarcity value (hybrid/scalable unified data mgmt; indexing capabilities) - +600 new customers = strongest seq. add since Dec '12 qtr; company to intro significant new product enhancements in early-February, 3.) cloud momentum: PBs managed in public cloud +250% y/y; Microsoft Azure, AWS, and forthcoming Oracle relationship remain positives; 4.) expanding adjacent opportunity expansion + distribution partnerships (Microsoft, Amazon, Oracle, Cisco, global SIs etc.). While we reduce our F2018 estimates from $702.5M/$1.40 (previously 15.5% EBIT%) to $697.7M/$1.14 (now 12.7% EBIT%), our F2019 estimates are relatively unchanged at $780.3M/$1.50.
