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 is benefiting from a firm international footing and solid uptick in emerging suite of products. Robust demand for Email Fraud Defense, Threat Response and PSAT are tailwinds. Its new offerings have expanded the total addressable market, and are proving to be a key growth catalyst. Strong demand for its next-generation cloud security and compliance platform, ongoing migration to the cloud, and high renewal rates are other tailwinds. Shares have outperformed the industry year to date. However, Proofpoint expects no contribution from the Cloudmark’s OEM business to negatively impact its top line. Moreover, continuous investment in sales and marketing is expected to weigh on the company’s bottom line in the near term. Capital expenditures and depreciation are expected to keep margins under pressure in the near term." (1/8/2020)
  • 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)
  • 3. Northland Securities analysts commented, "We note the initial successes in International and Federal Govt, which had been lagging markets for Proofpoint." (7/26/2019)
