Oppenheimer Sticks to Its Buy Rating for Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)
Oppenheimer analyst George Iwanyc maintained a Buy rating on Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today and set a price target of $18. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $15.05.
“HPE reported strong October-quarter results ahead of expectations, while reaffirming FY19 guidance. The strength extended across segments, including continued Compute/Intelligent Edge (WLAN and switching) momentum and improved performance in storage (which is expected to continue into FY19). The company also continued to deliver operating margin improvement and remained engaged with its capital returns and stock buyback efforts (an important element in the current market environment). We remain comfortable with our thesis, seeing an improved product portfolio as a positive lever for HPE to gradually gain share. Tweaking estimates given guidance. Maintain Outperform.”
According to TipRanks.com, Iwanyc is a 3-star analyst with an average return of 6.0% and a 53.3% success rate. Iwanyc covers the Consumer Goods sector, focusing on stocks such as Ceragon Networks, Juniper Networks, and Pure Storage Inc.
