What are analysts saying about Gartner stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Gartner offers timely, thought-provoking and comprehensive analysis that is known for its high quality, independence and objectivity. This unbiased, pragmatic and actionable insight can help organizations to effectively save thousands of dollars through in-depth research. With a diligent execution of operational plans, Gartner has recorded double-digit growth in key metrics for over a decade. The company has a vast, untapped market opportunity worth an estimated $61 billion. The acquisition of CEB further reinforces Gartner’s market strength and is likely to be accretive in the future. Gartner has a large and diverse addressable market with low customer concentration that mitigates operating risks. The company has also outperformed the industry year to date. However, revenue from the federal government business is exposed to lengthy approval times and other austerity measures, which undermine the long-term growth potential to some extent." (10/16/2017)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "Foresi’s Take. Gartner turned in quarterly results above expectations as the Core Research segment had a nice showing in the period. Gartner raised 2017 guidance including expectations for the newly acquired CEB. Commentary regarding the CEB purchase was positive, with Gartner believing it has the ability to accelerate CEB growth rates to low double-digits by 2020." (5/8/2017)
