Earnings and Revenue


Sell-side analysts expect Palo Alto Networks's EPS to be near $1.39 on sales of $922.34 million. Palo Alto Networks reported a profit of $1.47 per share when it published results during the same quarter last year. Sales in that period totaled $805.80 million. If the company were to match the consensus estimate, earnings per share would be down 5.44%. Revenue would be up 11.19% from the year-ago period. Here's how the company's reported EPS has compared to analyst estimates in the past:

How Do We Feel on $PANW Earnings?


We feel as the stock has had a great climb and would be a good place to take profits before earnings and wait until the earnings report comes out to enter any trades in this name. Most earnings have not done so well since $AAPL so I believe this stock should be avoided as an earnings gamble. An Iron Condor or Butterfly may be the best option here.
