What are Wall Street analysts saying about Splunk stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Splunk stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Splunk Inc. provides a software platform, which collects and indexes data and enables users to search, correlate, analyze, monitor and report on this data, all in real time. Its software is designed to help users in various roles, including IT and business professionals. Splunk Inc. is based in San Francisco, California. " (10/24/2018)
  • 2. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We come away from Splunk’s annual user conference (“.conf”) with increased convic- tion that the business momentum remains very strong with customers reacting very positively to several parts of the new Enterprise 7.2 release which we believe could drive more expansion. Attendance at the event was up over 40% from last year, a further sign of accelerating momentum. We believe the combination of significant innovation, go -to-market execution (i.e., solution selling and focus on ratable revenue) and customer success set the company up for continuing outperformance. We reiter- ate our Buy rating and $135 price target." (10/7/2018)
  • 3. Mizuho analysts commented, "We think Splunk continues to enjoy favorable competitive environment within a fairly large opportunity, which should help maintain rapid n-t growth rates. Execution focus includes a plan to accelerate new customer wins. Despite reiterating its goal of 20K customers by FY20 (from just over 15K in FY18), management was very candid about wanting to accelerate customer acquisition. While messaging around coverage enhancement was similar to last year, we see ongoing tweaks to the sales model potentially supporting an uptick. Splunk is focusing its customer acquisition on smaller accounts with cohort commentary indicating significant growth potential over time as a result of use case expansion (the company indicated that 90% of total license bookings in FY18 came from existing customers, up from 70% in 2014). Further go- to-market initiatives around demand gen and partnerships (e.g. AWS) can help performance, in our view. Rep productivity trends appear supportive too." (3/28/2018)
