What are Wall Street analysts saying about Fortinet stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Fortinet stock:
  • 1. Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "We maintain our Neutral rating and our price target of $100. Fortinet posted a strong quarter across the board, beating consensus in revenue, billings, and non- GAAP EPS. SD-WAN was highlighted as an area of particularly strong success during 2Q19, with management pointing to both large deals and an increased emphasis on a broader approach to infrastructure security. Overall, management appeared pleased with the continued growth, especially as driven by the company’s non-Fortigate product offerings." (8/2/2019)
  • 2. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "We do not view this as a particularly easy compare vs. the ~13% y/y product revenue growth (ex 606) we saw in 2018, which comped ~5% product growth in 2017. We believe longer- term FTNT’s business should become more ratable which was evident this quarter. With product growth likely slower this year we are looking for a continued ramp in the company’s ratable service revenue to support growth going forward. We continue to view FTNT’s current valuation as rich and likely inflexible in the event of a negative surprise on the fundamentals. Remain In Line rated." (5/7/2019)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Fortinet is benefiting from strength in overall product suite of Security Fabric. The digital transformation and security refresh cycle across most industries are tailwinds. Fortinet is the market leader in Unified Threat Management in terms of revenues, which is believed to be one of the fastest growing segments in Network Security with a projected growth in the range of high-single to low-double digits. Notably, its shares have outperformed the industry in the past year. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s first-quarter earnings release. It has positive record of earnings surprises in the recent quarters. Nonetheless, competition from numerous big and small players in the security application market poses concern. Near-term prospects for Fortinet are not promising as changing customer spending behavior recently hit several other players in this space. The company also seems to be losing business to its rivals." (4/9/2019)
