What are Wall Street analysts saying about Symantec stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Symantec stock:
  • 1. Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "We believe ZS, CBLK, and CrowdStrike are the greatest beneficiaries of this market shift." (5/28/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Symantec suffered weak Q4 results wherein both earnings and revenues fell on a year-over-year basis. The company is hurt by a drop in the enterprise bookings, softening its Enterprise Security segment. Low ProxySG refresh cycle and tepid sales of cloud proxy, Web Security Services, mailnly due to competition loss to Zscale, is a concern. Further, rising costs in the Enterprise business are expected to keep margins under pressure in the near term. Also, leak guidance provided by the company and the abrupt departure of CEO Greg Clark are likely to leave the stock stressed. Shares of the company have underperformed the industry year to date. However, solid demand for cybersecurity-related products and an increase in the global IT security spending due to menacingly growing global hacking events are a positive. Moreover, Symantec's innovative products and solutions will help it win customers, thereby increasing its business volume." (5/15/2019)
