Snowflake price target raised to $465 from $455 at Credit Suisse
On December 6, 2021, Credit Suisse analyst Phil Winslow raised the firm’s price target on Snowflake to $465 from $455 and kept an Outperform rating on the shares. The analyst notes Snowflake reported strong Q3 results with both revenue and operating margins well ahead of consensus and his expectations – revenue growth reaccelerated to north of 110% versus consensus expectations for a deceleration to 91%, and non-GAAP operating margin turned positive for the first time, a year earlier than consensus expectations. Winslow views Snowflake as a true pioneer in cloud-native data analytics and believes the company will play an increasingly important role across the entire data value chain.
Snowflake price target raised to $344 from $295 at Morgan Stanley
On December 3, 2021, Morgan Stanley analyst Keith Weiss raised the firm’s price target on Snowflake to $344 from $295 after what he called “an outstanding Q3 print” that included year-over-year product growth accelerating to 110% and net revenue retention improving to 173%. While he thinks expanding partner contribution, geographic expansion, new industry clouds and a broadening solution set given Snowflake “multiple vectors” for sustaining growth, Weiss keeps an Equal Weight rating on the stock as he estimates a mid-30’s percentage compound annual growth rate over the next 10 years already appears priced into the shares.
Citi upgrades Snowflake with $470 target with growth at ‘inflection’
On December 2, 2021, Citi analyst Tyler Radke upgraded Snowflake to Buy from Neutral with a price target of $470, up from $299, following last night’s results. Snowflake’s growth is at an “inflection point” following the “very strong” Q3 report, Radke tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes large enterprise budgets are starting to unlock, which should drive larger deals, while the partnership and competitive environment are more favorable. He views the recent pullback in shares of Snowflake as creating an attractive entry point. The stock is flat from December 2020 despite the company maintaining 110%-115% product growth with stronger profitability, says Radke.
Snowflake price target raised to $400 from $360 at Oppenheimer
On December 2, 2021, Oppenheimer analyst Ittai Kidron raised the firm’s price target on Snowflake to $400 from $360 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares. The analyst notes Snowflake delivered “another strong quarter,” with revenue/EPS exceeding consensus estimates. The quarter benefited from high net retention rate, new customer adds, and large customer traction, Kidron adds.
