What are analysts saying about Twilio stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Twilio stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Twilio recently reported strong results for second-quarter 2017, wherein the top line came ahead of our expectations, while the bottom line matches the same. Also, the company witnessed year-over-year improvement on both the counts. The recently reported robust quarterly results clearly indicate that the company has been able to mitigate the loss of revenues from Uber. The company’s key initiatives, which include product innovation, global expansion and acquisitions, are helping it in gaining customers, which bodes well for long-term growth. We opine that proliferation in cloud and mobile penetration across the globe will continue to fuel Twilio’s customer growth over the long run. Nonetheless, intensifying competition in the communications market and growing prevalence of in-app push notifications are major concerns. Notably, the stock has underperformed the industry in the last one year." (8/11/2017)
  • 2. JMP Securities analysts commented, "Building high-quality, reliable API services that have 99.999 percent availability and have resulted in nearly 30,000 production deployments."Listening to its customers to build higher-value APIs that solve customer’s problems but are also stickier than lower-lower APIs."Introducing new feature and products at a rate of one every 3.5 days, a rate competitors will be hard-pressed to match."Rapidly adding developers to its community, including 600,000 in the last 12 months." (5/25/2017)
  • 3.

(5/25/2017)
  • 4. Drexel Hamilton analysts commented, "We believe Twilio may slightly exceed our 1Q:17 revenue forecast of $83.2 million (up 40% YoY; Street is at $83.5 million) and at least meet our loss per share projection of $0.06 (Street is at a loss per share of $0.07). Our 1Q:17 sales forecast represents a 1% QoQ rise and well below the 2-year average of up 18% for past March quarters. Recall, Twilio’s 1Q:17 outlook calls for sales of $82-84 million and a loss per share of $0.07-0.06. Twilio is recognized as a pioneer in the cloud communications platform market with a following of over 1 million developers across 36,606 active customer accounts in 4Q:16.
