CHKP Stock Earnings Per Share
Zachs is projecting that EPS will continue to rise well in 2022 and then peak. We think Zach’s is wrong on this front as the demand for cybersecurity will rise exponentially with the debut of bad AI. Bad AI entails organised crime using AI-based programs to seek security loopholes that can be exploited. The only way to deal with such programs will be for AI-based security programs to spot them and block those loopholes. Hence, we feel that the EPS will continue to trend upwards for the foreseeable future.
CHKP Stock Price Target for 2020 and beyond
There is a strong zone of resistance in the 109 to 114 ranges. A monthly close above 114 will pave the way for the CHKP to trade to the 128 to 132 ranges with a possible overshoot to 147. After that, the stock should pullback briefly and test the 114 to 119 ranges before going to put in a series of 52-week highs. Traders should view strong pullbacks through a bullish lens.

Check Point Research, the Threat Intelligence arm of Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), a leading provider of cyber security solutions globally, recently identified and helped mitigate several security flaws on OkCupid’s website and mobile app. If exploited, the vulnerabilities would have allowed a hacker to access and steal the private data of OkCupid users, and send messages from their account without users’ knowledge.

However, the detailed personal information submitted by users also makes online dating services targets for threat actors, either for targeted attacks or for selling on to other hackers. yahoo finance
