Profit margins

Analysts expect HPE to post a net margin of -0.08%, with an operating margin of 8.6%, in fiscal 2017. The company reported a net margin of 6.3%, with an operating margin of 9% in fiscal 2016.

Profit margins are, however, expected to expand in 2018 and 2019, driven by HPE’s rise in operational efficiency. While analysts expect HPE’s revenue to fall 12.7% in 2018, its net margin is expected to rise to 3.2%, with an operating margin of 9%. HPE’s operating margin and net margin are expected to be 4% and 9.3%, respectively, in 2019, with revenue growth of 0.3% YoY. Peers NetApp (NTAP), IBM (IBM), and Nokia (NOK) had operating margins of 9%, 16.4%, and 9.2%, respectively, at the end of their last reported fiscal quarters.
