On Monday, Five Wall Street firms released their coverage on the newly listed public company including Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs. The company kicked off at $10 on September 30 and has traded under that level since its debut.
Palantir has received various ratings from analysts and some of the most bullish ratings came from Morgan Stanley’s analyst, Keith Weiss and Jefferies’ Brent Thill. They are seeing the stock price to target the $13 mark surging up to almost 31%. Both the analysts see PLTR as ‘Buy’, while Credit Suisse, RBC, and Goldman Sachs pointed to ‘hold’ the stock.
Weiss highlighted that Palantir’s growth has positively inflected at about $1 billion run-rate revenue, which is as rare as hens’ teeth in enterprise software. Weiss also added that the investors are not pricing the rising growth and widening profit.
Goldman Sachs said that the company has found its best fit in the US government, that will help the state organizations including intelligence, military readiness, and counterterrorism.
However, Merwin from Goldman added that the company will face challenges in the commercial space, given the proliferation of cloud-native database and BI tools.
