What are analysts saying about Gigamon stock?

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

  • 1. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We believe panel driver ICs for full screen smartphones and optical finger print sensor solutions will be the main catalysts for 2H17. We expect two to three major Chinese OEMs to start testing Synaptics’ optical fingerprint sensor solution in mid-2017. There might be some potential share gain op- portunities for Synaptics in 2H17." (4/30/2017)
  • 2. FBN Securities analysts commented, "We are initiating coverage of Gigamon with an Outperform rating and $40 PT. The company provides leading-edge visibility solutions that, especially since the July 2015 release of GigaSECURE, have increasingly been used to connect with security solutions from vendors such as FEYE, RSA (Dell-EMC), Riverbed, PANW, FTNT, and others to enable users to have better visibility across the their entire security architecture. This has resulted in security accounting for over 70% of bookings (and more than 80% of bookings for new customers) in F2016. The remaining parts of GIMO's revenue distribution are mobility (~25% of revenue, we estimate) and cloud (small currently, but with potential; GIMO launched its public cloud offering in Nov. 2016 and obtained its first customer ' CME Group [derivatives exchange in Chicago])." (3/16/2017)
  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "We come away from our visit confident in Gigamon's positioning, investments in continuing growth and actions to realign the sales process. We note the Gigamon's sales staffing increased 35% through December 31, 2016 which should provide considerable momentum to sustaining growth. Gigamon expects to grow sales staffing another 25% in CY17. In addition, new product and feature flow should make 2017 an above average year for new product momentum. We also think the Ixia buyout should help Gigamon's share as the year progresses. There are still a couple of tough comps to work through but there seems to be good progress toward getting back to a strong growth trajectory." (3/13/2017)
