FTNT earned 0.53 for last 4 QT.
PANW earned 0.82 for last 4 QT.
FTNT is at better PE.
Investor betting on PANW for better PEG...
but I would go for FTNT for now...stable uptrend w/positive cash flow...
PANW is like TSLA it goes up with no news or any positive earnings!!! It's a rich investor stock that is driving up by pumps and no fundamentals whatsoever!!!
I have stayed mostly in cash since I discovered this website because, with this ecomony, daily headlines were whipsawing markets, and I couldn't keep up. The result is that I'm finally ahead of the trade. Go see there free daily video you will know what I am talking about.

when it comes to numbers, I always have good sense :))) (brag a bit)
My friend and I have a running bet. He owns FEYE and I own FTNT.
A flight to Las Vegas and hotel for the winner. Overall percentage gain for the calendar year 2015.
Don't fight the tape. This stock has a long bull run ahead especially after looking at yesterday's numbers and the outlook for a bright future. Only a fool would short this stock now.
Close. 13% rise today. This is my top stock in a fantastic sector. I agree that company is still way undervalued.
My last trade alert with UltimateStockAlerts was pretty bad. They owned up to it and admitted that it wasn’t their best alert. I guess you can’t win every battle. Will try my luck on the next alert.
I second what rzacks says, what planet do you live on? I only wish i had bought more! This company is best in
breed. And where do you get share price falling, if it does i will buy more.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
What planet do you live on. Guidance was great.

Shares of security technology vendor Fortinet (FTNT) are up $3.70, or almost 9%, at $46, in late trading, after the company this afternoon reported Q2 revenue and earnings per share that topped analysts’ expectations, forecast this quarter’s results above consensus, and raised its year outlook.
Revenue in the three months ended in June rose 30%, year over year, to $239.8 million, yielding EPS of 11 cents.
Analysts had been modeling $227.6 million and 9 cents a share.
CEO Ken Xie said the company’s “investment strategy continues to pay off,” adding that “Fortinet is well positioned to maintain momentum and gain market share globally due to our best-in-class integrated end-to-end network security platform.”
On a conference call with analysts following the report, the company forecast revenue this quarter in a range of $255 million to $260 million, and earnings per share of “approximately” 12 cents. That compares to consensus for $236 million and 14 cents.
For the full year, the company raised its revenue forecast to $1 billion to $1.01 billion, up from a prior range of $935 million to $940 million, and reiterated its existing profit forecast of 51 cents to 52 cents EPS. That is above consensus for $943 million and 51 cents.
For Q2, CHKP beat forecast by 0%, FTNT beat revenue forecast by 10%
Today CHKP up 7%, how much will FTNT up for tomorrow?
My estimate is it shall be around 14%.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Agree. It will be in red by end of day tomorrow. Earning was good but not great. There was already a big run up to earnings. Likely to start the day over 6% but will tapper down.
Anyone surprised by the beat and raise today? I am not. This firm is just getting rolling.
Made a great acquisition recently as well. Stay long with FTNT...
