Cybersecurity stocks--despite several recent major hacks--have gone nowhere, because of their high valuations by any metric. In mid-April they topped and sold off, but are back to their April highs, including Palo Alto and Zscaler. The bigger picture is that what happens if cybercriminals go after the banks or exchanges? Yes, these stocks are expensive, but you want to buy them, such as Palo and Zscaler. Cyber attacks aren't going away, but will get worse.

Poster child for network security providers. They change as the market changes. 12-month price target of $447. Buy half a position now around $340, and another half at 320. No dividend. (Analysts’ price target is $448.34)

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly PANW is well positioned for the unfortunate need for higher cybersecurity in the world. PANW offers customers firewall, cloud, and analytics security. Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure are some of its biggest clients. Recent earnings showed a 25% increase in revenues and management expects another year over 20% again. Cash reserves have grown to be estimated over $2.9 billion. We would buy this with a stop loss at $300, looking to achieve $450 -- upside over 25%. Yield 0% (Analysts’ price target is $447.35)

The best cybersecurity play. It's tripled into the last 11 months, but was hammered in today's reopening rally and drubbing of tech stocks. Their last report beat the street, but their forecast merely met expectations, but this is priced for perfection. Expect volatility during the current rotation to reopening stocks.

Crowdstrike is in security business, endpoint protection. New module expands its total addressable market. A favourite of Gartner Research, calling it a "visionary vendor" second only to MSFT. Trading at a bit of a discount. May be able to buy in low $120s. Price target of $160.30. Don't buy and hold; you must monitor it closely. Also likes PANW and CYBR, with PANW being a long-term hold.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly PANW is well positioned as a leader in cyber-security and the trend towards work-from-home is adding more reason to see additional follow through. An analyst at BTIG just upgraded their view on the stock to a target of $313 -- upside of over 18% -- on the back of growing success in federal contract deals. This is after Q3 earnings showed a 35% increase in EPS and sales increasing by over 35% for the past five consecutive years. The stock just broke out of key resistance at $250, which creates good upward momentum. We would trade this using the $250 level as key support. Yield 0%

Software security space? PANW or CYBR would be his picks. Although CYBR stock prices just spiked on recent earnings, so he would wait for a pullback on that one.

He's been in and out of this for five years. They dominate the cybersecurity space. True, their 40x PE is high, but their peers are even higher. PAWN is fairly valued. Earlier this year they struggled as they transitioned from licenses to subscriptions, but they will snap back. (Analysts’ price target is $269.44)

He loves the cyber-security theme. Earnings growth is projected in the 20-25% range. A high-quality name in the space, but trading at 20-40 times earnings. Be cautious.

Cyberspace sector? This is a long-term growth area, because Cyber Security is not going to get better, it is just going to get worse. This is a name that is very pure in this particular space. Trades at about 44X earnings on a forward basis with a 23% long-term growth rate. Not really cheap, but you are paying about 1.9X PEG in an area that is very, very important.
