  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Pure Storage delivered stellar third-quarter results. Robust business fundamentals and strong go-to-market strategies drove top line growth. 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. The stock has outperformed the industry in the past year. Expanding customer base is a positive. Further, strengthening partnership with NVIDIA is likely to bolster its growth prospects and expand product offerings. Pure Storage also raised fiscal 2019 revenue guidance. However, increasing competition from established storage players like HPE and NetApp is a major concern. Also, lack of big international customers is a headwind." (11/22/2018)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "Solid results relative to guidance due to strength with FlashBlade. In-line guidance, S&M spend appears to be on track for just 21% y/y growth in FY19, which is incrementally concerning from our perspective. Cloud data services needs to mature before becoming impactful, in our view. Reiterating Hold rating and reducing 12-month price target to $21, from $23." (11/20/2018)
