  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Okta, Inc. is a provider of identity for the enterprise. The Company's product consists of Okta information technology Products and Okta for Developers. Okta IT Products include Single Sign-On, Mobility Management, Adaptive Multi-Factor Authentication, Lifecycle Management and Universal Directory. Okta for Developers include Complete Authentication, User Management, Application Programming Interface Access Management and Developer Tools. Okta, Inc. is based in SAN FRANCISCO, United States. " (3/14/2019)
  • 2. Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "We point towards relatively small deals for a ~$500 million ARR company growing 50%+, which require greater S&M expense. But management foresees larger deals in the future, which would inflect margin performance. Overall, Okta remains the clear leader in cloud identity and is successfully executing to the large and growing opportunity." (3/8/2019)
  • 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. BUY." (10/10/2018)
