We believe a first mover advantage, strong competitive positioning, and a growing awareness of the importance of identity in driving agility and security for cloud is and will continue to support a robust growth opportunity for Okta. However, trading at the high-end of secular SaaS peers, we believe the opportunity is captured in current valuation." (12/6/2018)

  • 3. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We believe Okta is well positioned to scale to become a multi-billion-dollar revenue firm and if that is true, then it is very likely that the stock will nicely reward long-term investors. Meanwhile, our bet is that the stock is close to a short-term bottom after swooning almost 20% in 30 days, especially as investors realize Okta is likely to post a strong October quarter (FQ3) in early December.
