It trades at 17x PE. Cybersecurity will be an big issue as companies around the world (the recent MSFT breach is an example). We've digitized so quickly during Covid, so that's led to more security problems, and this won't go away. Federal governments around the world are looking into these bad actors. CHKP has many new products coming to serve the cloud business. They beat their quarter, but offered poor guidance, because they're moving to a subscription-based operation. That said, he expects growth in several more quarters. (Analysts’ price target is $133.10)

A security company. He is very positive on the fibre security market, but trying to pick names in this area without doing a lot of work is challenging. Earnings from a lot of these companies has been extremely variable. This is one of the names that you could own, because the firm is quite large and global in scope. You might also want to consider an ETF like PureFunds ISE Cyber Security (HACK-N), which would give you exposure to all the different names.

Top Short This is a dual pick measuring relative performance. Go long on NSCN-Q and short on CHKP-Q. Checkpoints revenue is flat. Net Screen is taking market share from Checkpoint and growing their revenues. Use STOP LOSSES.
