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. " (5/4/2018)
- 2. 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)
- 3. Credit Suisse Group AG analysts commented, "We view this acquisition as an incremental positive, and see it enhancing SPLK’s role as an agnostic security platform sitting atop the traditional security stack. We leave FY19 estimates unchanged at this time. Phantom Cyber: Named ‘RSA ® Conference 2016’s Most Innovative Startup’, Phantom is a security automation and orchestration platform that integrates with 1,000+ APIs and 200+ apps. Phantom uses data from SIEMs and analytical tools to interpret and execute “playbooks” (i.e. codified SecOps plans). A variety of responses may then be executed—including file detonation in an integrated sandbox, file hunting on endpoints, device quarantine via NAC, and URL blocking on perimeter devices. Strategic Positive: We believe this acquisition continues to align with our views that (1) data is the future of security (SPLK), and (2) security needs automation and orchestration (NOW)."
