What are Wall Street analysts saying about ServiceNow stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about ServiceNow stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "ServiceNow delivered stellar second-quarter results. However, the company faces stiff competition from the likes of Oracle and salesforce.com in the non-ITSM market, which is compelling the company to increase spending on sales and marketing, thereby hurting profitability. Also, modest growth in professional business, continuing losses, muted free cash flow growth and stretched valuation are key negatives. Moreover, cut-throat competition can hurt pricing power as well as lengthen the sales cycle, which will negatively impact top-line. ServiceNow has been incurring losses over the last five years and has an accumulated deficit. The company anticipates reporting loss in the near term due to increased costs such as non-cash charges associated with equity awards, business combinations and other expenses. Despite the improving top line, mounting losses doesn’t bode well for investor confidence." (7/30/2018)
  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We expect total revenue ~$575mm (up 34% Y/Y) vs. consensus of $572mm (mgmt. stopped guiding to total revenue). Subscription revenue could print ~$530-535mm (up 37-38% Y/Y) vs. consensus of $530mm and guidance of $525-530mm. For profitability, EPS could print ~$0.38-0.39 vs. consensus of $0.37; CFFO expectations of $224mm seem reasonable given the tough compare and billings pull-forward into 4Q17. Conversations suggest ongoing momentum. Subscription billings guidance of $601-605mm (up 25-26% Y/Y) implies sequential subscription DR build of $76mm; mgmt. was likely conservative due to pull-ins and could deliver some upside. Assuming flat PS billings, consensus is largely in-line with guidance; we think results could print ~$610-615mm (up 27-28% Y/Y) as our checks indicate: 1) in-line discounting environment; 2) incremental use of transaction based pricing for more automated operational workloads; 3) competitive environment remains stacked in the company’s favor." (4/20/2018)
  • 3. Credit Suisse Group AG analysts commented, "We believe NOW is poised to execute against a massive digital transformation opportunity, with the majority of its $62bn TAM from newer, less penetrated markets. Our analysis suggests that even if NOW penetrates its Emerging Solutions markets less than half as quickly as it penetrated the ITSM market, the company can exceed its $4bn revenue target by 2020. We believe net-new ACV mix shifting towards Emerging Solutions increases the likelihood of achieving sufficient penetration beyond core ITSM. This is further evidenced by a building presence of emerging products within the top 20 deals in a quarter. As the figure below depicts, ITBM, GRC, and Analytics had the strongest y/y growth in presence among the largest deals booked. A lower-sloped trend indicates stronger momentum for a respective product. See our recent earnings note, NOW: 4Q17 – NOW More Than Ever." (2/11/2018)
  • 4. Piper Jaffray Companies analysts commented, "Our conversations with partners and customers have made us incrementally more comfortable that this growth trajectory is sustainable, supported by the company's growing success outside of ITSM and increased confidence in John Donahoe's ability to execute this vision as CEO," the firm added.Piper Jaffray sees a premium multiple, supported by a structurally higher margin profile, which it feels will appeal to a larger set of shareholders over time more like Adobe Systems Incorporated (NASDAQ: ADBE) and less like salesforce.com, inc. (NYSE: CRM) and Workday Inc (NASDAQ: WDAY).That said, the firm said it is vital for the company's current margin framework on both operating margins and cash flow to be sustainable over time."So, to reiterate our call, the combination of a favorable near-term setup combined with substantial long-term growth opportunity support our decision to upgrade NOW now," (10/23/2017)
