What are Wall Street analysts saying about Proofpoint stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Proofpoint stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Proofpoint’s near-term bottom-line results are expected to remain under pressure due to continued investments in sales and marketing initiatives. Higher depreciation expense is also expected to drag down profitability. Moreover, declining hardware and services revenues are likely to keep straining the company’s near-term top-line performances. Notably, shares of Proofpoint have underperformed the industry in the past year. Nonetheless, the company is benefiting from strong customer wins and solid progress in emerging products. Solid demand for its next-generation cloud security and compliance platform, ongoing migration to the cloud, solid international growth and high renewal rates are other tailwinds. Robust demand for Email Fraud Defense, Threat Response and PSAT are positives as well." (4/13/2020)
  • 2. Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "We recently had the road to meet with investors. Proofpoint’s bundling strategy, while still relatively new, appears to be gaining momentum and may help simplify the purchasing process for customers. Products beyond core email security are also growing in importance and becoming a greater driver to growth as messaging security continues to shift beyond securing email. We come away from our meetings remaining confident in the Proofpoint story, and believe the company is well positioned for continued growth." (9/13/2019)
