The successful prediction of Check Point stock price could yield a significant profit to investors. But is it possible? The efficient-market hypothesis suggests that all published stock prices of traded companies, such as Check Point Software, already reflect all publicly available information. This academic statement is a fundamental principle of many financial and investing theories used today. However, the typical investor usually disagrees with a 'textbook' version of this hypothesis and continually tries to find mispriced stocks to increase returns. We use internally-developed statistical techniques to arrive at the intrinsic value of Check Point based on Check Point hews, social hype, general headline patterns, and widely used predictive technical indicators.
We also calculate exposure to Check Point's market risk, different technical and fundamental indicators, relevant financial multiples and ratios, and then comparing them to Check Point's related companies.

The Bottom Line

Although some firms within the software?infrastructure industry are still a little expensive, even after the recent corrections, Check Point may offer a potential longer-term growth to insiders. While some insiders may not share our view we believe it may be a good time to exit Check as the risk-reward trade off is not appealing enough to hold a position.
