Verint Systems Inc (VRNT) Receives a Rating Update from a Top Analyst

Oppenheimer analyst Shaul Eyal reiterated a Buy rating on Verint Systems Inc (NASDAQ: VRNT) today and set a price target of $58. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $44.89.

Eyal commented:

“Following meetings with senior VRNT management, we reiterate our Outperform rating and $58 price target. Both Customer Engagement (“CE”) and Cyber Intelligence (“CI”) grew 11% y/y last quarter. In our view, VRNT is positioned for accelerating revenue growth, expanded margins, and solid earnings growth. CE’s neutral approach to communications infrastructure enhances its ability to leverage key drivers such as the elevation of an enterprise-wide priority, growing industry adoption of the Cloud, and the rise of Automation technologies. CI’s evolution to a software model magnifies the demand-accelerating impact of increasingly complex cyber threats, a global shortage of security analysts, and the increasing importance of Predictive Intelligence for security efforts.”

According to TipRanks.com, Eyal is a top 100 analyst with an average return of 15.1% and a 64.8% success rate. Eyal covers the Technology sector, focusing on stocks such as Nuance Communications, Varonis Systems, and Proofpoint Inc.
