Check Point announces extension to share repurchase program

Check Point announced that its board has authorized an extension to the company's on-going share repurchase program. Under the updated plan, effective immediately, Check Point is authorized to continue to repurchase up to $250 million of ordinary shares each quarter, up to an aggregate of $1 billion. From April 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017, Check Point repurchased approximately 14 million shares for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $1.2 billion, which represented an average repurchase per quarter of $247.3 million. As of June 30, 2017, Check Point has approximately 162.8 million ordinary shares outstanding. Check Point began its share repurchase program in 2003, and since then has repurchased approximately 144.9 million shares for a total purchase price of approximately $6.3 billion. The updated plan extends the previous repurchase plan adopted in May 2016, which provided for the repurchase of up to $250 million shares each quarter, up to an aggregate of $1.5 billion.

Barracuda results bode well for Security earnings, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty believes Barracuda Networks' (CUDA) Q1 results tonight set a positive tone for the June quarter earnings of Security names. Based on Barracuda's quarter, the analyst expects to see "good things" from Mimecast (MIME), Palo Alto Networks (PANW), Fortinet (FTNT), Check Point (CHKP) and Imperva (IMPV). Auty also recommends using any post-earnings weakness in shares of Barracuda as a buying opportunity. He believes Barracuda is one of the best positioned Security companies to capitalize on the shift to the cloud. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on the name.

Check Point downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Andrew Nowinski downgraded Check Point Software to Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $108 from $116. With the stock up 27% year-to-date, the valuation has now "reached a peak" given the decelerating billings, product/subscription and free cash flow growth. The analyst views Check Point's Q2 results as "mixed."

Check Point FY17 remains intact, says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Tal Liani said Check Point reported solid Q2 results but lowered Q3 guidance due to the timing of a local holiday. The analyst said it is a timing issue and any un-booked orders will fall into Q4 and FY17 remains intact. Liani rates Check Point a Buy with a $120 price target.
