Security hardware and software firm Palo Alto Networks (PANW) - Get Report is trading lower Thursday (May 30) after delivering a mixed set of numbers in its April quarter earnings report.

The company beat sales and earnings estimates, and issued solid sales guidance. However, it also reported weaker-than-expected billings, and its earnings guidance was lighter than expected due to the impact of recent acquisitions and (to a lesser extent) tariffs.
