What are Wall Street analysts saying about Imperva stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Imperva stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Imperva Inc. is engaged in the development of protection software and services for business applications and databases. The Company delivers innovative technology to give full audit accountability and separation of duties to meet regulatory compliance. It offers SecureSphere Data Security Suite to protect sensitive data from hackers and malicious insiders along with providing a fast and cost-effective route to regulatory compliance and establishes a repeatable process for data risk management.

Imperva Inc. is headquartered in Redwood Shores, California. " (12/12/2018)
  • 2. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "We believe most strategic acquirers, however, have been less active in the space. Recall that in October 2016, IMPV was forecasted to grow revenue low double digits with just about breakeven non-GAAP profitability. The company finished 2017 with 22% revenue growth and ~11% operating margins. Forecasts for F18 revenue have previously been cut due to a shift to more ratable sales (see our prior earnings note here). The uncertainty around growth (better measured by billings) and profitability caused the more recent decline in the stock, but we believe the fundamentals are in a materially better position than during the October 2016 timeframe. Given the announced acquisition, we are downgrading IMPV from and moving our PT from $56 to $55.75." (10/11/2018)
  • 3. BTIG Research analysts commented, "Imperva posted a strong beat on Non-GAAP EPS, a moderate beat on revenues, and weaker than expected billings, deferred revenues, operating margin and cash flows. Disruptions in the North American salesforce during the quarter seems to have created challenges in delivering the results. While Asia Pacific seems to have been off to a strong start, with Europe following, without the North America engine in full throttle, Imperva cannot get to its destination. We like management’s vision to transform into a hybrid cybersecurity leader, but until we see tangible outcomes, we are forced to remain on the sidelines. Maintain Neutral." (4/29/2018)
