CrowdStrike: Adding Here Makes More Sense

CrowdStrike will report its FQ1 earnings on June 2. Investors will parse management's commentary carefully to evaluate whether there's a noticeable slowdown in cybersecurity spending. The Street estimates are optimistic and suggest that CrowdStrike could surpass its internal guidance. Therefore, the bar has been set higher to clear after its Investor Conference in April. Our price action analysis suggests a near-term bottom after its recent sell-off. However, we remind investors to allocate exposure appropriately, given its growth premium. We revise our rating from Hold to Buy as its risk/reward profile has improved. Our price target of $210 implies a potential upside of 45%.
