What are analysts saying about Symantec Corporation stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Symantec Corporation stock:
- Piper Jaffray Companies analysts commented, "Symantec reported solid FQ3(Dec) results across all metrics and guided above the Street for FQ4(Mar), excluding FX headwinds. Both the Enterprise and Consumer segments improved and we are particularly encouraged by the improving growth rates of the Enterprise Endpoint products, following the release of SEP14. With the LOCK deal expected to close on Feb 9, we believe there could be significant upside potential to FY18 EPS guidance. We reiterate our Overweight rating and raise our PT to $35 (prev $31)." (2/2/2017)
According to Zacks Investment Research, "Cybersecurity firm Symantec faces increased competition from the likes of Intel and Microsoft. Also, smaller companies like Kaspersky are consistently launching comparable products. These, along with uncertainty over PC sales remain headwinds. Moreover, changing customer spending behavior makes us pretty skeptical about Symantec’s near-term performance. However, the sale of the Veritas business provided Symantec with the financial flexibility to take the acquisition route to transform its struggling business. We believe that the acquisitions will enable Symantec to strengthen its position in the enterprise security market. Notably, the company has outperformed the broader market over a period of one year." (1/20/2017)
- Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "SYMC is well positioned to answer a pressing customer desire to consolidate security functionality and address a shift to Cloud with a strong management team and a logical plan. However, new business has been declining significantly, which will be difficult to reverse with a largely ratable rev model, while investor exuberance has already incorporated some success and leaves little room for upside, especially when adjusting for stock based comp. Hold; $27 PT." (1/18/2017)
