What are Wall Street analysts saying about Pure Storage stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Pure Storage stock:
  • 1. Maxim Group analysts commented, "Revenue disappoints due to large enterprise deals pushing out. Strong deferred revenue suggests strengthened retention rates. FY20 midpoint revenue guidance lowered by $35M despite just a $6M F1Q20 miss, makes us incrementally concerned reduced demand is due to increased price competition for select large enterprise customers. We expect the increased price competition to pass, maintain Hold rating and DCF-based 12-month price target of $22." (5/23/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Pure Storage reported dismal fourth-quarter results. Nonetheless, the year-over-year increase in revenues can be attributed to robust business fundamentals, strong FlashBlade implementation, higher adoption of new products and strong go-to-market strategies. Robust business fundamentals and strong go-to-market strategies are key postives. The company continues to gain from adoption of its strong product portfolio including the likes of FlashArray and FlashBlade. Additionally, the company’s data platform for cloud is gaining traction. The transition to cloud-capable storage for data integrity and predictive analytics bodes well for Pure Storage. Expanding customer base is a positive. Further, strengthening partnership with NVIDIA is likely to bolster its growth prospects and expand product offerings. However, increasing competition from established storage players like HPE and NetApp is a major concern." (3/6/2019)
