What are Wall Street analysts saying about Red Hat stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Red Hat stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Red Hat first-quarter results benefit from strong cross-selling and robust demand for Ansible and OpenShift. The company is benefiting from improved linearity driven by on-time renewal of deals. Expected strong demand for containers is another growth driver. Red Hat’s expanding partner base that includes IBM, Intel, Dell, Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Alibaba is tailwind. We note that the company has outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. However, stiff competition is a headwind. Pivotal Container Service (PKS) formed through the partnership of Google, Pivotal and VMware is a significant threat in this regard. Middleware weakness is likely to hurt the top line in fiscal 2019." (6/27/2018)
  • 2. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "We continue to view FY19 revenue estimates as being fairly conservative and while Red Hat shares may need to consolidate around current levels before pushing higher, we believe the company remains well positioned as it relates to hybrid cloud adoption and CoreOS is a solid addition to its emerging product portfolio. Maintain Outperform and $140 PT based on 24x EV/CY19 FCF." (2/2/2018)
