Commvault: Sell-Off Provides A Buying Opportunity
Commvault reported a disappointing quarter with revenue and EPS below expectations and provided guidance that fell below expectations. The company attributes the revenue miss to large transformation deals that are being pushed out due to hardware delays. While the company does not expect hardware delays to persist for a longer time, the company prudently lowered guidance for F3Q and F4Q. Commvault software is considered the industry standard and is widely deployed in the enterprise. Its software is an essential bulwark against ransomware attacks. Its Metallic SaaS software is worth watching. Compelling valuation, industry-leading position, share gaining ability, and conservative outlook make Commvault a buy. Therefore, we are buying shares on the weakness.
