Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about NetApp stock: 1. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We are initiating coverage of Buy rating and $94 price target. We believe NTAP has regained momentum and competitive edge over the past 2 years, facing the same public cloud headwind as other traditional systems OEMs but 1) jumping from laggard to leader in all-flash arrays (AFAs) and 2) leveraging its core ONTAP software into one of the market’s most compelling “hybrid” cloud platforms. NTAP’s common software stack can now be deployed on-prem or in the cloud and its new software-only SaaS business could even help make the cloud accretive. We believe enterprise storage demand is reaccelerating, driven by investments in machine learning (ML) and AI that feed on massive amounts of processing thrown at massive amounts of data storage." (7/12/2018) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "NetApp is a provider of enterprise storage and data management software and hardware products and services. The company’s expertise in the flash array market is increasing its prominence in the storage area network (SAN) and converged infrastructure markets. The company’s newly launched hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) is also expected to be a positive for the top-line growth in the long run. We believe NetApp is well positioned to enjoy steady growth driven by its diversified portfolio and strong distribution channels. These will drive demand for the company's products going forward. Estimates have been going up ahead of the company’s Q4 earnings release. The company has positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. Shares of the company have outperformed the industry in the past one year. However, intensifying competition from bellwethers such as HP Inc., Dell, IBM and Oracle is a major headwind." (4/17/2018) 3. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We are raising our investment rating on NTAP from a Hold to a BUY based on higher growth expectations, along with a major dividend hike and another multi-billion dollar share buyback. Our EPS for FY19 moves to $3.90 from $3.72 vs the street at $3.77. Rev to $6.2b, up from $6.1b. Our PT moves to $72 from $62 based on a 15x PE multiple when adjusting for the $13/share of net cash. We expect at a minimum a $2.5b multi-year buyback, but could as high as $3.5b, front end loaded, and the dividend to be raised 50%-100% from the current $0.80/annual 1.33% yield to a 2%-2.67% yield. All this can be funded from the repatriation and FCF. Attractive cash position and Free Cash Flow. NTAP is repatriating $4b of cash. Plus over the next three years they should have almost $4b of cumulative FCF, using approximately the mid-point of the prior guidance for FCF as a percent of revenue of 16%-22% (FCF was at 23% in 3Q18A)."
