Why people play a game about 'meaningless tasks'
Published6 April 2020By and large, Zscaler’s work would be increasingly crucial as businesses expand their cloud infrastructure. This would be the case as more companies rely on the cloud to store their data and vital assets. With Zscaler’s protection on this front, it would not surprise me to see ZS stock being in focus now. Ahead of its upcoming earnings report this week, the company’s shares are trading towards record heights. Over the past year, this adds up to monumental gains of 115%. Would all this make ZS stock worth investing in now?
Well, for one thing, Inside Edge Capital Management founder, Todd Gordon, seems to believe so. Just last week, he highlighted ZS stock among his top picks for the sector. According to Gordon, the company’s shares could grow to a value of $400 per stock. Should this be the case it would suggest a possible price hike of 45% from its valuation of $287.40 as of last week’s closing. Gordon added, “When they get to more scale that they’re looking for, there’ll be opportunity for them to increase [the] bottom line and turn a profit for investors, so right now you’re buying for growth.” With all that said, will you be adding ZS stock to your portfolio today?Source: TD Ameritrade TOS
