What are analysts saying about Box stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Box stock:

  • 1. Drexel Hamilton analysts commented, "We are taking a haircut to FY4Q numbers as a result of the intense competitive pressures. But we remain positive on Sprint’s massive spectrum portfolio, which positions it well to exceed growing capacity demands. Our TP remains unchanged at US$11 based on 7.0x our CY18E adj. EBITDA ex-leasing. Impact Verizon’s Feb 12 th unlimited launch, triggered universal unlimited. Though postpaid phone churn was originally expected to be ~5bps lower QoQ, increased competition caused it to remain flat. We note that the churn impact peaked during week 1 and then tailed off, reflecting Sprint’s continued leadership in price (Fig. 1). Current promos include: 1) a single line under Unlimited Freedom for US$50/mo for one year and US$60/mo after that; 2) two lines for US$90/mo; and 3) US$30 off any order placed online or by phone and a free activation for new customers. Meanwhile, prepaid momentum is building up, driven by Boost/Virgin. We are modelling a sequential improvement in trends with churn ~10bps lower QoQ, at the expense of Cricket and MetroPCS. We now expect FY4Q16 total revenues to go ex- growth at US$7.98bn with adj. EBITDA of US$2.37bn." (3/31/2017)
  • 2. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "1.) Management remains very comfortable with its F2021 operating target of $1 billion in revenue, operating margins around 10% and FCF margins in the mid to high teens. 2.) Management reiterated its guidance for positive FCF this year on 25% revenue growth. 3.) The competitive environment versus Microsoft (MSFT:NR) has clarified with the deep Office 365 integration. Our research with Microsoft partners supports this view as the channel has improved its understanding of the different use cases for Box vs. One Drive or Sharepoint. Management remains confident that Microsoft currently sees little strategic value in shifting resources to address a problem that Box is currently solving for them. 4.) The IBM (IBM:NR) partnership continues to expand with Box now embedded in 10 different IBM products and the co-developed Relay workflow offering in beta test. IBM is seeing Box drive incremental business for the company in strategic product areas including Watson analytics and security, particularly data loss prevention. 5.) Retention rates remain a key focus and are expected to hold steady at 115% annual dollar rate. We believe this number could tick upward as the company rolls out new products later this year. 6.) Automating workflow is coming up more and more in customer conversations. 7.) The Fujitsu partnership announced last year should begin to drive revenues in Japan for Box later this year." (3/16/2017)
  • 3. FIG Partners analysts commented, "Box delivered another strong quarter ahead of consensus, supported by good large deal momentum (64 deals >$100K), newer products (especially Governance, KeySafe, Zones), and the IBM channel (contributing to 18 six-figure deals). We're also pleased to see Box meet its positive FCF target in 4QFY17, while setting a positive FCF target for all of FY18 even as it accelerates sales investment. We remain bullish and continue to believe that IBM and Box's various newer products (Governance, KeySafe, Zones, Shuttle, etc.) provides a solid base for growth. There's also room for upside as even newer efforts gain traction (Platform, Relay) and international sales ramp (helped by Zones and sales investment). We're raising our revenue projections, though modestly increasing our loss per share projections reflecting the sales investment." (3/2/2017)
