What are Wall Street analysts saying about The Ultimate Software Group stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about The Ultimate Software Group stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ultimate Software reported stellar second-quarter results. The top line benefited from new strategic customer wins. However, intensifying competition in the HCM market, continuing investments, and higher operating expenses are major concerns.  This apart, the ongoing trend to invest more in cloud solutions exposes Ultimate Software to the risk of losing existing enterprise customers, which can adversely impact its top-line performance, especially in the near term. Nonetheless, the company is benefiting from the robust adoption of its HCM solutions. Its cloud-based business model and expanding product portfolio are key catalysts. Top-line growth is expected to be bolstered by the portfolio strength. Additionally, new customer wins as well as impressive retention rates bode well." (8/3/2018)

Management remains focused on executing on its current plan while enhancing its product portfolio to drive ASPs higher.
