What are Wall Street analysts saying about Hewlett Packard Enterprise stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Hewlett Packard Enterprise stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Hewlett Packard recently reported better-than-expected results for Q2. Buoyed by impressive quarterly performance the company issued an encouraging bottom-line guidance for Q3 and raised its outlook for fiscal 2018. Hewlett Packard’s announcement of returning $7 billion to shareholders by fiscal 2019 is also encouraging. Going ahead, we are optimistic about the company’s massive restructuring initiatives. On one hand, it is offloading low-margin businesses such as Enterprise Services and Software, which, in our opinion, will improvise the company’s margins over the long run. And on the other hand, it is enhancing its capabilities in the hybrid IT model as evident from the acquisitions of SimpliVity, Cloud Cruiser and Nimble Storage. However, the challenge imposed on the company due to the acquisition of EMC by Dell is somewhat of a headwind. Notably, the stock has underperformed the industry over the past one year." (5/28/2018)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We move our but keep FY19 at $1.55 as we expect revenue growth to slow and a higher FY19 tax rate. Our PT remains $20, or 13x our FY19E. The Good.

The Intelligent Edge is 8% of revenue and grew a very strong 14% YY in cc and is mostly Aruba networking. Finally, Financial Services was 11% of revenue and grew 1% in CC. The growth came from a good macro, when taking out FX. HPE is not suggesting that the growth will continue at this pace as FX benefit is waning as the dollar has regained strength and 2H18 YY comp numbers get tougher, but they still expect growth. Servers were up 6%, but had the continued drag or T1. Increased pricing is holding and DRAM cost increases are moderating." (5/23/2018)
  • 3. Maxim Group analysts commented, "Top-line beats consensus on Storage, but Compute segment constant currency growth regresses to up only 2% y/y. Guidance slightly raised largely due to non-operational items; return to FY16 levels appear still far away. Maintain Hold rating, but slightly raising 12-month price target to $18, from $17."
