Palo Alto Networks (PANW) now -13.9% AH in response to its mixed FQ3 results. With shares trading at lofty multiples, there was little margin for error. In its PR, Palo Alto mentions seeing a "touch macroeconomic environment" (peers can sympathize), but doesn't give a specific reason for its revenue miss. Revenue growth of 54% is a slowdown from FQ2's 70%. Still, deferred revenue rose 17% Q/Q to $219.3M. Opex +70% Y/Y to $80M, with sales/marketing spend +71% to $51.7M (51% of revenue). CC getting started (webcast), guidance should be provided. Off in sympathy: CHKP -1.2%. FIRE -2.2%.
