Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Yext stock:
  • 1. SunTrust Banks, Inc. analysts commented, "We walked away feeling incrementally more bullish on execution and the growth prospects, given the pace of new enterprise wins, with the momentum likely to be sustained over the near/medium term, driven by growing sales headcount/productivity and increasing customer spend. The strength in enterprise should be supplemented by a build-out of mid-size focused sales, which the company is undertaking. We view a slowdown in deferred rev growth in 3Q as transitory and see the recent pullback in the stock as an opportunity to own a differentiated growth story, trading at an attractive 4.8x fwd revs. Focus squarely on Enterprise and mid/size category; Momentum building. Yext’s focus on overhauling sales talent is finally starting to show up in the numbers and visible in the pace of new logo wins (~80 in 3Q18 vs ~55 in the year ago period)." (12/14/2018)
