Palo Alto Networks (PANW, $235.55) rallies on higher-than-expected fiscal Q2 earnings and $1 billion stock buyback plan

Palo Alto Networks reported better-than-expected earnings for the fiscal second quarter, and also announced a stock buyback program - leading to its shares jumping +11% in after-hours trading Tuesday.

The cybersecurity company raked in  adjusted earnings of $1.51 per share in the three months ending January, beating analysts’ estimates of $1.22 per share (based on Refinitiv data). Quarterly revenue of $711.2 million came in higher compared to analysts’ expected $682 million ((based on Refinitiv data). That marks a +30% year-over-year surge in revenue for the quarter. Product revenues, grew +33% to $271.6 million, while those from services increased +29% to $439.6 million.

Palo Alto also announced that its board authorized up to $1 billion in share repurchases, and introduced its Cortex AI-based security platform.

The company is apparently gung-ho in bolstering its cloud solutions and cyber security business. Last week, it announced its $560 million acquisition of Demisto, a startup specializing in security orchestration, incident management and interactive investigation. 

For the fiscal third quarter, Palo Alto projects adjusted earnings in the range of $1.23 to $1.25 per share. It expects revenue to be in the range of $697 million to $707 million for the quarter - that puts the midpoint at $702 million, which is higher than the $696.7 million FactSet estimate.
