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 is benefiting from improved linearity driven by on-time renewal of deals. This reflects strong demand for hybrid cloud technology solutions as well as aggressive cross-selling. Moreover, robust performance by the Services business based on strong demand for the Ansible solution is a key catalyst. 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 noticeable. We note that the company has outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s Q1 earnings release. The company has positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. 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." (5/30/2018)
  • 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)
  • 3. Drexel Hamilton analysts commented, "We believe Red Hat will slightly beat our 2Q:FY18 revenue estimate of $699.6 million (up 17% YoY; Street is at $699.6 million) and our EPS projection of $0.67 (Street is also at $0.67). Our 2Q:FY18 revenue estimate represents 3% QoQ growth (i.e., the 62nd consecutive quarter of sequential revenue growth) but slightly below the five-year average of up 4%." (9/19/2017)
