What are Wall Street analysts saying about Proofpoint stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Proofpoint stock:
  • 1. 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)
  • 2. Northland Securities analysts commented, "We note the initial successes in International and Federal Govt, which had been lagging markets for Proofpoint." (7/26/2019)
  • 3. 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 and Threat Response is a tailwind. Its new offerings have expanded the total addressable market, and are proving to be a key growth catalyst. Renewal rate is consistently high. Moreover, Proofpoint raised its view for 2019 revenues. Solid adoption of cloud is boosting demand for its solutions. Focusing on subscription model is driving growth. Shares have outperformed the industry year to date. However, Proofpoint expects headwinds this year due to zero contribution from the Cloudmark’s OEM business. Moreover, continuous investment in sales and marketing is expected to weigh on the company’s bottom line in the near term. Competition from bellwethers continues to be an overhang." (6/20/2019)
