Palo Alto Networks stock rises 4% with company set to join S&P 500

Palo Alto Networks (PANW) stock rose nearly 4% on Monday as investors cheered the cybersecurity company's addition to the S&P 500 Index (^GSPC).

Palo Alto Networks will replace Dish Networks (DISH) as part of the index's quarterly rebalancing on June 19, S&P said in a release late Friday. Palo Alto Networks will join the Information Technology (XLK) sector of the S&P 500. Palo Alto Networks will be the sixth addition to the index this year.

The stock of the cybersecurity company hit a 52-week high on May 24 after boosting the low end of its full-year revenue forecast along with its first quarter earnings release.

Shares of Palo Alto Networks have outperformed the S&P 500 this year. Palo Alto Networks is up more than 55% this year while the S&P 500 has risen 11.5%; Dish stock has fallen more than 48% over that period.

Companies often see their stock rise upon inclusion in the S&P 500, as an estimated $15 trillion benchmarked to the index creates forced buyers of the stock. Products like index funds and ETFs that track the S&P attempt to own each stock in the index at their equivalent weighting in the index. Investors cannot invest directly in an index.

The rise in Palo Alto Networks stock comes as concerns ebb over spending in areas like cloud computing, which had pressured markets last year. During the company's earnings call on May 23, Palo Alto CEO Nikesh Arora noted that while the macroeconomic environment is "still hard," his company is finding ways to fight through.

"The overall macro trends of cautious spending, deal scrutiny, and cost and value consciousness persist," Arora said on the call.

"Moreover, the behavior continues to be more widespread across a larger swath of our customers. Against this backdrop, we have been staying ahead with rigorous execution. We've increased our own deal scrutiny, gotten ahead of the challenges, and continue to sharpen our business value focus while demonstrating superior security outcomes to our customers."

Wall Street is also bullish on the S&P 500's existing name, with 41 analysts rating the stock at a Buy or equivalent rating, six analysts keeping a Hold or equivalent rating on the stock, and no analysts rating shares a Sell, according to data from Bloomberg. The consensus price target among analysts is $236, reflecting roughly 8% upside in the stock.

Palo Alto Networks Ignite ’22: AI-Powered SecOps Is the Future of Cybersecurity

Ever wonder what keeps executives and CEOs up at night? The answer, according to a global survey conducted by Palo Alto Networks, is cybersecurity. Cybercrime is one of the leading concerns for businesses heading into 2023, and cyber budgets are expected to “grow 15 percent per year over the next three years, reaching $10.5 trillion USD annually by 2025, up from $3 trillion USD in 2015,” according to research firm Cybersecurity Ventures.

Speaking at the 10th anniversary of Palo Alto Networks Ignite ’22, experts warned that the global landscape is actually making it easier for attackers. “Today we are living in a state of hyperconnectivity, which means that everything online is an open vector for a threat,” said Palo Alto Networks CEO Nikesh Arora. “It starts to feel like a game of whack-a-mole.”

There are more attacks happening per second than there are IT professionals to fight them. “It’s very discouraging,” agreed Lee Klarich, the company’s chief product officer. “Every time a new product is developed to advance progress, cybercriminals see it as an opportunity to exploit.”

The Future of Cybersecurity: What IT Leaders Should Expect

Until now, businesses typically patch problems as they come up. “We’ve been reactive when we need to be proactive,” said Arora. Speakers at the morning keynote session cited President Biden’s May 2021 executive order to Boost the nation’s cybersecurity as a major motivator to prioritize this issue, predicting that with more national awareness, the SEC could enforce more cybersecurity policies and regulations on businesses.

Following that call to action, Klarich outlined a plan for combatting cyberthreats using artificial intelligence: “A platform-oriented, AI approach driving security outcomes. It’s a ground-up transformation of cybersecurity.” Much of that transformation depends on automation. “AI is going to be what the internet was for us 30 years ago and what the iPhone was for us 15 years ago. It’s that kind of game changer,” said Arora.

AI is going to be what the internet was for us 30 years ago and what the iPhone was for us 15 years ago. It’s that kind of game changer.”

Nikesh Arora CEO, Palo Alto Networks

The Three Major Cybersecurity Challenges Facing the Industry

There are three major problems facing the cybersecurity industry that transformative AI-powered platforms can combat. But even with hope on the horizon, IT professionals still need to understand the interconnectedness of these challenges.

1. Fragmentation of cybersecurity tools. “Every customer may have as many as 30 cybersecurity vendors in their infrastructure,” said Arora. “We put the onus of integrating these tools together on the customer.” This makes for a more taxing experience and increases the likelihood of error, he said.

2. SOC teams are reactive not proactive. Currently, security operations center teams are reactive in remediating threats when they should be proactive. Typically, SOCs receive an alert and begin to investigate. Even if the threat is resolved in a single minute, that’s still 60 seconds for hackers to access a company’s data.

3. Companies lack a fully integrated security platform. There is no central place for all cybersecurity apps to reside. This creates an inconsistent customer experience with a weaker line of defense.

How AI-Driven SecOps Changes the Current Paradigm

AI allows IT professionals to address these three challenges at once. “So far, we’ve fought cyberthreats with human intelligence, but we need to leverage AI to automate the workflow and deeply integrate technology with threat intelligence,” said Arora.

There’s also the issue of speed. The lag time between vulnerability and exposure is shrinking, and SecOps analysts can only work so fast. AI, on the other hand, can analyze data quickly to locate potential threats. According to Klarich, the AI-driven method is already paying off. “In the last few months, close to 6 million unique attacks were prevented on real-use traffic,” he said.

In fact, Palo Alto Networks found that AI is improving threat detection by 47 percent in terms of speed to remediate and 45 percent in terms of managing vulnerabilities. By deploying a combination of a platform service, cloud computing and AI companies can bolster cyber defenses tenfold.

Palo Alto lifts annual forecasts on resilient cybersecurity spending

May 23 (Reuters) - Palo Alto Networks Inc (PANW.O) raised its annual forecasts for revenue and adjusted profit on Tuesday as enterprise customers shift to one-stop shops for their cybersecurity needs in a bid to reduce costs.

Shares of the Santa Clara, California-based company gained 4% to $197.2 in volatile trading after the bell.

A rise in cyber crime and the growing digital presence of businesses and governments have fed demand for cybersecurity software, helping soften the impact from technology budgets shrinking in the face of high interest rates and inflation.

"The market is tough and definitely more challenging than when we started the year," the company said during its earnings call. "We are fortunate to be focused upon a technology market that is more resilient."

It is also working on embedding generative AI, the technology behind chatbot sensation ChatGPT, into products and workflows.

"Raised guidance for Q4 billings growth gives us more confidence to expect demand headwinds to ease incrementally as we set up for stronger performance in FY24," said Janice Quek, equity analyst at CFRA Research.

Palo Alto, which counts Accenture and Salesforce (CRM.N) among its clients, now expects 2023 adjusted net income per share of $4.25 to $4.29, from $3.97 to $4.03 estimated earlier.

It increased the lower end of its full-year revenue outlook to between $6.88 billion and $6.91 billion, compared with a prior forecast of $6.85 billion to $6.91 billion.

The company also forecast fourth-quarter revenue between $1.94 billion and $1.97 billion, compared with analysts' estimates of $1.95 billion, according to Refinitiv data.

Shares of Palo Alto Networks (NASDAQ: PANW) got a 5% bump Monday morning on the first trading day after it was announced that the stock will be joining the S&P 500 index.

S&P Dow Jones Indices announced Friday evening, after close of trading for the week, that before trading opens on Tuesday, satellite TV operator Dish Network (NASDAQ: DISH) will drop out of the S&P 500 index of America's largest companies and fall into the S&P SmallCap 600 index instead.

Its place in the S&P 500 will be taken by cybersecurity company Palo Alto.  

So what

Investors should be aware that this change doesn't directly affect the fundamentals of either business. It's simply a reflection of the fact that, with its stock up 27% over the past year and valued at nearly $70 billion, Palo Alto is now a very big company -- while with its stock down 66% over the same period, and now valued at less than $4 billion, Dish is a much smaller company.

The former therefore belongs in the S&P 500 index of big companies; the latter belongs in the S&P 500 index of smaller companies. It's really as simple as that.

Regardless, investors today are presumably buying up Palo Alto shares on the theory that, come Tuesday, mutual funds and ETFs that try to mimic the holdings of the S&P 500 will be out shopping for Palo Alto stock to reflect the new composition of that index.

Now what

This is not to say, however, that investors are acting illogically in buying Palo Alto shares today. For one thing, the fact that index funds and ETFs will be buying Palo Alto stock tomorrow probably will create some temporary "buying pressure" that could lift the stock price. In the short term, therefore, snapping up some Palo Alto stock today could be a good call.

In the short term...and the long term, too. After all, Palo Alto just finished reporting quarterly sales growth of 24%, strong profits, and more than $400 million in positive free cash flow, whereas Dish Network is coming off a quarter in which sales declined 9% -- and profits plunged 48%.

That may or may not be a good reason to sell Dish stock today, but it's certainly a good reason to buy Palo Alto Networks.
