Many enterprise software stocks are adding to their big 2020 gains on Thursday, as investors take heart in a batch of strong earnings reports that were posted on Wednesday afternoon.
Zscaler (ZS) – Get Report is up 24.3%, Okta (OKTA) – Get Report is up 6.9%, Snowflake (SNOW) – Get Report is up 16%, Elastic (ESTC) – Get Report is up 14.2% and CrowdStrike (CRWD) – Get Report is up 15.1% after each company comfortably beat its October quarter estimates and (generally speaking) issued strong guidance. And a number of other software names appear to be catching sympathy bids.
Palantir Technologies (PLTR) – Get Report, which tumbled yesterday on a Morgan Stanley downgrade, is up 8.8%. Smartsheet (SMAR) – Get Report is up 6.8%, Datadog (DDOG) – Get Report is up 4.8%, Unity
Coupa Software. (COUP) is expected to deliver a year-over-year decline in earnings on higher revenues when it reports results for the quarter ended October 2020. This widely-known consensus outlook gives a good sense of the company’s earnings picture, but how the actual results compare to these estimates is a powerful factor that could impact its near-term stock price.
The stock might move higher if these key numbers top expectations in the upcoming earnings report, which is expected to be released on December 7. On the other hand, if they miss, the stock may move lower.
While the sustainability of the immediate price change and future earnings expectations will mostly depend on management’s discussion of business conditions on the earnings call, it’s worth handicapping the probability of a positive EPS surprise.
Zacks Consensus Estimate
This company is expected to post quarterly earnings of $0.04 per share in its upcoming report,
As professional workers in the US continue to work remotely due to the pandemic, many are discovering their HR and financial systems aren’t set up for this modern situation.
For companies that haven’t switched to cloud-based service providers, accessing sensitive and confidential documents can still require some roundabout measures. “They are having people sneaking onto their business to download some reports and being able to provide the financial numbers” Chano Fernandez, Workday’s co-chief executive officer said during a conference call on Nov. 20.
Opportunities in the cloud
Even without secret office visits, many businesses are realizing they need to modernize the various systems they use to manage employees (known as HCMs), in order to survive the pandemic and better accommodate long-term remote
Computer Task Group (CTG) could be a solid choice for investors given the company’s remarkably improving earnings outlook. While the stock has been a strong performer lately, this trend might continue since analysts are still raising their earnings estimates for the company.
The upward trend in estimate revisions for this information technology staffing company reflects growing optimism of analysts on its earnings prospects, which should get reflected in its stock price. After all, empirical research shows a strong correlation between trends in earnings estimate revisions and near-term stock price movements. This insight is at the core of our stock rating tool — the Zacks Rank.
The five-grade Zacks Rank system, which ranges from a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) to a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell), has an impressive externally-audited track record of outperformance, with Zacks #1 Ranked stocks generating an average annual return of +25% since 2008.

Qualcomm announced its fiscal Q4 2020 and full-year earnings report last week, and the market liked it, its stock soaring up to 13%. While I usually don’t write about a company’s earnings as an industry analyst, I will write when I believe those earnings signify some kind of milestone for the company, management or product line. This was true for Qualcomm’s Q4 results. The company also broke out its growth areas to give investors even more granularity into its businesses.
I want to provide the news, the numbers and then weigh in on them. I appreciated spending some time with Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf after the earnings call to get a better perspective.
