KeyBanc analyst Michael Turits raised the firm's price target on Fortinet to $370 from $324 and keeps an Overweight rating on the shares following strong Q3 checks, expectation for minimal supply chain disruption, and solid VAR survey results. The analyst notes that his Q3 VAR survey saw an increased percentage of respondents indicating they met or exceeded plan this quarter. At the same time, however, there were increased reports of supply chain delays, and expectations for both 2021 and 2022 growth moderated. Digital transformation focus remains on cloud data management, advanced security, and application modernization, Turits adds. The analyst also points out that security VARs again indicated very strong demand, if with a slightly lower percentage of meets/beats than last quarter, and with increasing reports of supply chain constraints.
