Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)

Maxim Group analyst Nehal Chokshi maintained a Hold rating on Hewlett Packard Enterprise today and set a price target of $17. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $16.23.

Chokshi wrote:

“GM upside driven by mix shifts, but spent on incremental R&D investment, while EPS upside driven by below-the-EBIT line items. Areas of incremental R&D investment are late to the hybrid cloud paradigm shift that NTNX and NTAP are well-positioned for, leaving uncertainty as to whether a return for shareholders will be generated, in our view. Maintain Hold rating, FY20 estimates and thus 12-month price target of $17, though modestly raising FY19 EPS on lower OI&E.”
