Fortinet's (FTNT 1.66%) stock plunged 25% on Aug. 4, after the company posted a mixed second-quarter earnings report. The cybersecurity company's revenue rose 25% year over year to $1.29 billion, narrowly missing analysts' estimates by $10 million, but its adjusted earnings grew 58% to $0.38 per share and cleared the consensus forecast by $0.04.

Fortinet's headline numbers looked healthy, but an unexpected reduction to its full-year revenue forecast rattled the bulls and sparked a broad sell-off across the cybersecurity sector. Does that grim warning suggest it's too late to buy Fortinet?

What does Fortinet do?

More than two decades ago, Fortinet launched FortiGate, a "next-gen" firewall that provided more network device filtering capabilities than traditional firewalls did. That firewall became the foundation of its "Security Fabric," a comprehensive security platform that provides end-to-end security tools for on-premise, cloud-based, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices through a mix of appliances, on-site software, and cloud services.

Fortinet differentiates itself from its competitors with customized ASIC chips built for its own hardware and FortiOS operating system. It claims these proprietary chips give it a significant advantage against other cybersecurity appliance providers that use off-the-shelf x86 CPUs, programmable chips, and Arm-based chips. It believes the convergence of the cybersecurity, networking, and hybrid cloud markets will drive the market's long-term demand for its services.

Fortinet's growth rates support that bullish long-term outlook. Between 2012 and 2022, its revenue rose at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24% while its adjusted net income grew at a CAGR of 27%. It currently serves more than 680,000 customers globally, including most of the Fortune 500, so it's often considered a bellwether of the cybersecurity sector. That's why its reduced guidance for the rest of the year caused many other cybersecurity stocks to stumble.

Was Fortinet's outlook that alarming?

As the following table illustrates, Fortinet slightly reduced its revenue and billings estimates for the full year. It blamed that slowdown on the macro headwinds, which forced many companies to rein in the software spending and sign shorter contracts.


2022 (Actual)

2023 Outlook (Previous)

2023 Outlook (Revised)

Revenue growth




Billings growth




Data source: Fortinet.

Fortinet also dampened hopes for a quick recovery by predicting that its billings growth rate would remain in the "high teens" thorough the end of 2024. That dim outlook raises some troubling questions regarding its long-term goal of generating $8 billion in revenue and $10 billion in billings by 2025. To hit those targets, it needs to grow its revenue and billings at a CAGR of 22% and 21%, respectively, from 2022 through 2025.

Fortinet didn't reiterate its 2025 targets during its second-quarter conference call. Instead, CFO Keith Jensen said Fortinet might re-evaluate those goals as it enters its "normal planning cycle for 2024" in the second half of 2023.

But on the bright side, Fortinet raised its adjusted gross margin, adjusted operating margin, and adjusted earnings growth estimates for the full year. It still expects its margins to decine year over year as its revenue growth cools off, but it expects its price increases, lower product costs, and cost-cutting measures to cushion that blow.


2022 (Actual)

2023 Outlook (Previous)

2023 Outlook (Revised)

Adjusted gross margin




Adjusted operating margin




Adjusted EPS growth




Data source: Fortinet. EPS = earnings per share.

That improved outlook suggests it can still achieve its long-term goal of maintaining an adjusted operating margin of "at least 25%" through 2025. It also indicates it still has plenty of pricing power in the crowded cybersecurity market.

But is it too late to buy Fortinet's stock?

At $57, Fortinet trades at about 38 times this year's earnings per share. That makes it seem cheaper than Palo Alto Networks (PANW 0.67%), which is growing at a similar rate but trades at 48 times forward EPS. CrowdStrike (CRWD 1.52%), which is growing faster than Fortinet and Palo Alto, has a much higher forward multiple of 64.

When I look at Fortinet, I mainly see its resilience during previous economic downturns, its impressive proprietary chips, its stable margins, and its ability to generate consistent profits on the basis of generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Its stock might stay in the penalty box until its billings growth accelerates again, but I believe this evergreen cybersecurity company is still a great long-term investment.

Killexams : Fortinet: The Market Is Overreacting To The Guidance Cut And Providing A Good Buying Opportunity No result found, try new keyword!Fortinet offers a comprehensive solution through integrated hardware and software services, tapping into the thriving market. See why I'm bullish on FTNT stock. Sun, 20 Aug 2023 03:24:19 -0500 en-us text/html Killexams : Fortinet's Stock Crashed -- Is This Leading Cybersecurity Provider Done For?

Fortinet's (FTNT 1.66%) magnificent 2023 rally that sent shares to new all-time highs is over -- at least for now. Following second-quarter 2023 financial updates, the market was mighty displeased with management's guidance.

Whenever a stock fetches a high premium, investors expect management to under-promise and over-deliver, not the other way around. Is it time to bail on Fortinet?

Normalization, or outright disconnect with reality?

Fortinet reported Q2 2023 revenue of $1.29 billion, up 26% from last year. Within that total, product sales (like firewalls, a security device to manage traffic into and out of a physical location) increased 18% to $473 million, and services (of which 55% are security software subscriptions, or SaaS) grew 30% to $820 million. Earnings per share were $0.33, up 57%, and free cash flow (FCF) was up 54% to $438 million.

But the problem had little to do with last quarter, but a lot with the future. Earlier this year, management had said billings (invoices sent to SaaS customers for payment due) would rise to $1.56 billion to $1.6 billion as Fortinet's massive product revenue over the last few years starts to translate into more software and service. But Fortinet delivered a real shock when it said those billings ended up being just $1.54 billion, below guidance.

Worse yet, full-year 2023 revenue guidance was lowered as much as $75 million less than previously expected to a range of $5.35 billion to $5.45 billion. The services segment is partly to blame as sales from that segment have apparently been delayed by some customers. However, it also seems that product inventory is in need of being right-sized too.

For investors who follow the semiconductor and computing hardware industries, this likely sounds familiar. There are too many of some data center components on hand at the moment, and the current boom of generative AI servers (mostly Nvidia chips powering services like ChatGPT) have also led a lot of cloud and service providers to rethink and retool their designs. Perhaps this is also ripping into Fortinet's downward revision. Additionally, some retail customers are coping with sluggish consumer spending, and thus are also adjusting their spend on cybersecurity to manage their own flow of cash.

For Wall Street, the big question is now: Is Fortinet simply going through a growth normalization phase after booming financials the last two years, or is management's execution off? The stock price tanking 25% the day following earnings seems to imply bets are on the latter.

Don't get antsy with the sell trigger

The good news is that, as of right now, Fortinet is not altering its 2025 financial targets: $10 billion in annual billings, $8 billion in annual revenue, operating profit margins of at least 25%, and FCF margins of mid- to high-30%.  

In another sign of strength, management also increased its share repurchase authorization by another $500 million, leaving $2 billion available for buybacks (or 4% of the new post-stock-crash market cap). That sounds to me like confidence that management still sees its own stock as a good investment.  

I've owned shares of Fortinet for nearly five years, and have logged a more than 200% return on my initial investment. I'm not selling, but this situation should be monitored. It sounds like this slowdown in billings should be complete by the end of 2023, and I don't see a reason to seriously doubt Fortinet's long-term health.  

After the crash, Fortinet stock trades for 43 times trailing-12-month earnings, or 23 times trailing-12-month free cash flow. If you think profitable growth will continue at a mid-teens percentage clip, this could be an opportunity to nibble.

Thu, 03 Aug 2023 23:29:00 -0500 en-us text/html Killexams : Fortinet’s stock sent to the ‘penalty box,’ while Cloudflare appears to have exited it

Fortinet Inc.’s warning of “macro uncertainties” was weighing on the cybersecurity sector Friday, though at least one industry name managed to buck the trend.

Fortinet’s FTNT, +1.62% shares were on track for their worst one-day performance on record Friday, last down more than 22%, after the company reported that an “unusually large volume of deals” got pushed out of the latest quarter, while executives talked up macroeconomic challenges.

The commentary, which helped push Fortinet’s shares away from recent record highs, had ripple effects across the sector, as Palo Alto Networks Inc.’s shares PANW, +0.56% dropped 10% Friday, while the ETFMG Prime Cyber Security ETF HACK declined 1%. The S&P 500 SPX was up 0.6%.

JPMorgan analyst Brian Essex, who had an overweight rating on Fortinet shares but lowered his price target to $74 from $88, said the company’s report hit “the reset button” with a disappointing outlook and billings performance.

Fortinet’s results were seen as a downbeat signal for Palo Alto Networks.

“Although Fortinet has somewhat different end market exposure, we also view results as a negative read for Palo Alto Networks which reports in a few weeks, particularly with regard to product growth and contract duration,” Essex said. “We expect Fortinet will be in the penalty box and will remain under pressure following the disappointing results and lower near-term growth outlook.”

Stifel analyst Adam Borg, with a buy rating and $72 price target on Fortinet, said the earnings report offered “a negative read-through for the broader cyber group, especially on top of the confusing signal sent by Palo’s unusual Friday post-close earnings/analyst day on 8/18.”

Given the stock’s run-up on the year, “it’s not surprising to see the breather and we think Fortinet will remain in the [near-term] penalty box as investors debate if this is simply digestion or competition/shifting architectures,” Borg said. “We firmly believe Fortinet’s competitive positioning remains quite strong.”

Balancing out the negative, Cloudflare Inc. shares NET, +5.26% rallied as much as 15% Friday after the company reported slightly better-than-expected results and guidance, and Chief Executive Matthew Prince played up the company’s AI inferencing strengths.

Notably, Cloudflare had claimed a similar problem to Fortinet’s, that deals were taking longer to close, in its earnings report back in April.

UBS analyst Roger Boyd, who has a sell rating on Cloudflare’s stock, called the company’s report “decent,” and said it leads to “a mostly unchanged outlook.”

Boyd said that while a second-quarter stabilization “does mitigate some concerns” that the 2023 outlook was still too high, “we don’t think the AI inference narrative was entirely proven out.”

Guggenheim analyst John Di Fucci, who has a neutral rating on Cloudflare shares, said it “seems that Cloudflare was a crowded short” given the stock’s reaction to results. While suspecting new business may have declined, DiFucci said that second-quarter results were better than those for the company’s first quarter, compared with the Street consensus.

“We have always appreciated the vision and product execution of this company, which we believe is at least partially accounted for in the current stock price,” DiFucci said.
