Palo Alto Networks beat Q3 2021 expectations

Palo Alto Networks, the company that provides network security, cloud security, and various cloud-delivered security services, posted better-than-expected Q3 2021 earnings

For the quarter ended April 30, the California-based company reported an adjusted EPS of $1.38 versus $1.28 per share touted by analysts. Revenue-wise, the figures came slightly higher than the $1.06 billion forecasted, at $1.07 billion. Year-over-year, revenue went up 24%. The surge was due to the greater attention on cybersecurity as people worked remotely during the pandemic.

During the quarter, it purchased a cloud security company – Bridgecrew – for $156 million.

For the future, Palo Alto Networks expects adjusted earnings per share of $1.44, on revenues as high as $1.17 billion.

After the news hit the wires, Palo Alto Networks stock price went up 6%. Excepting the recent gain, its stock price is down about 4% year-to-date, while USA500 gained roughly 11%.
