Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Finally, Fortinet (Nasdaq: FTNT), a cybersecurity company, fits the profile quite well. I know this company, too — it’s one of the recommendations in my Fast-Track Millionaire advisory. However, I have to agree with the average analyst estimate here: the distance between the current price and the expected target is relatively small; after a near double-digit gain in two months, it’s a “Hold” at this time in Fast-Track Millionaire (and I would wait for a catalyst of some kind before rating this company a “Buy” again). But this is an innovative company in a growth business, and I am glad that today’s screen has pointed out to FTNT as one of the selected few.
