Mizuho Securities reiterated a Buy rating and $88.00 price target on Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) ahead of the company's 2Q earnings report. Mizuho expects management to remain conservative with guidance and reiterate its current full-year revenue and EPS forecast of $2.380-2.420bn and $2.19-2.23, respectively.

For revenue, we expect $590-595mm (+17-18% Y/Y) vs. consensus of $590mm and guidance of $587-593mm.
