Despite a post-Equifax breach run-up in shares, growing demand for Lifelock resulting from the breach should bring forward SYMC planned synergies and benefits associated with acquiring Lifelock. Lifelock represents ~15% of SYMC sales (est. based on adjusted pre-merger numbers), so temper expectations a bit. Nevertheless, profit potential from higher recurring revenue makes this one still a buy for me.
