Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Pure Storage stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Pure Storage provides software-defined all-flash solutions that are uniquely fast and cloud-capable for customers. The company continues to gain from adoption of its robust 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. However, increasing competition from established storage players like HPE and NetApp is a major concern. Moreover, lack of big international customers is a headwind. Increasing expenses are likely to hurt margins in the near-term." (7/18/2018)
