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 anticipates headwinds this year due to no contribution from the Cloudmark OEM business. Moreover, since it continues to invest in sales and marketing, we anticipate this to remain a drag on the company’s bottom line in the near term. Near-term prospects for Proofpoint are not promising as changing customer spending behavior has recently hit several other players in this space. Shares underperformed the industry in the past one year. Nonetheless, the company is benefiting from robust demand for the company’s next-generation SaaS-based security and compliance platform. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s Q4 earnings release. The company has positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters." (1/10/2019)
  • 2. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "We view Ms. Newell’s sales leadership at Proofpoint as highly effective and believe that she is taking on a role with more responsibility at another software company which does not compete with Proofpoint. It is possible that she could be taking on a C-level position which would be an understandable career progression." (5/30/2018)
