  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Palo Alto posted strong results in for Q2 mainly driven by healthy demand environment, new product launches and increasing adoption of the company’s next-generation security platforms. Buoyed by robust Q2 performance, the company provided impressive guidance for the current quarter and also raised FY18 outlook. Revenue growth seems to be steady, aided by strength across all its geographical regions and business segments. Also, customer wins coupled with expansion of the existing customer base are the other positives. We believe that the company’s product refreshes and acquisitions synergies will boost revenues, going forward. Also, the strategic partnerships with the likes of VMware, Splunk and Citrix, will continue to bring in customers for Palo Alto thereby boosting the top line. The stock has outperformed the industry in a year’s time. Nonetheless, a volatile spending environment and competition from peers remain concerns." (3/8/2018)
