Symantec acquisition of LifeLock 'could make sense,' says RBC Capital
After Bloomberg reported that Symantec (SYMC) could bid for LifeLock (LOCK), RBC Capital analyst Ross MacMillan says he believes that Symantec is still working on integrating Blue Coat, and he notes that it recently launched a product that competes with LifeLock. However, he says that combining the products of Symantec and LifeLock to create improved offerings "could make some sense" and may boost the growth of Symantec's Norton product. The analyst thinks the deal could raise Symantec's fiscal 2019 EPS by 15c-35c. He keeps a $28 price target and an Outperform rating on Symantec.

Oppenheimer views Symantec acquisition of LifeLock positively
Oppenheimer analyst Shaul Eyal views Symantec's (SYMC) acquisition of LifeLock (LOCK) for $2.3B positively as he believes the strategy can reinvigorate the former's slightly declining Consumer segment, particularly in an industry that is shifting toward a freemium business model. Overall, the analyst sees the acquisition of LifeLock as "a step in the right direction" to maintain Symantec's market-leading position in Consumer Malware Protection and enter the consumer digital safety market. He reiterates an Outperform rating on Symantec's shares.
