What are Wall Street analysts saying about Qualys stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Qualys stock:
  • 1. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We are initiating coverage of QLYS with a Neutral rating. All metrics currently show positive trends around the adoption rate of its Cloud Agents and the Cloud Platform, and even the attach rate of its Cloud Apps show a positive trend. However, its total revenue growth has decelerated over the past three quarters to mid-teens, increasing the risk that it may not achieve its 2021 target revenue growth in the low-to-mid 20s. We also believe that QLYS is undergoing a risky sales transition as it shifts its sales efforts to target C-level executives to better leverage its platform-based growth strategy. This is different from its traditional sales approach that primarily targeted security technicians." (9/9/2019)
