What are analysts saying about Pegasystems stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Pegasystems stock:
- Wedbush analysts commented, "PEGA appears to be sustaining its growth at a robust 15%+ rate, although its market traction is obscured by a mix shift to recurring revenue from term licenses and cloud contracts. The company's impressive 4Q sales performance is apparent from bookings metrics and supporting data, but is belied by poor headline results. Given the company's high retention rates (we estimate in the mid-to-high 90% range) and about a 4-year break-even for recurring vs. perpetual sales, we view PEGA's mix shift to recurring as highly accretive longerterm. We like PEGA's combination of high-teens growth, margin expansion potential, and valuation (shares are trading at 3.6x EV/ FY17E revenue)." (2/24/2017)
