Susquehanna reiterated a Neutral rating on Pure Storage, Inc. (NYSE: PSTG), and raised the price target to $12.00 (from $11.00), following the company's 2Q earnings report. Reported revenue of $163M exceeded consensus of $155M, and was above the guide of $153M-$157M. An EPS loss of $(0.16) was slightly better than the consensus estimate of $(0.23). The company's top line upside was driven by a solid execution though better EPS was in part due to some of the op-ex that was pushed out by one quarter.

Analyst Mehdi Hosseini commented, "Increasing estimates/PT following the July Q results reported last night though remain on the sidelines with a Neutral rating as we need to better assess the material contribution of Flash Blade starting in FY18."
