Recent News & Updates
C3.ai: Remaining On The Sidelines As Valuation Still Too Rich
C3.ai reported better than expected revenue during their recent FQ1 earnings, though full year revenue guidance was similar to expectations. While the company still has less than 100 enterprise customers, their recently announced collaboration with Google Cloud could open the door for more growth opportunities. Valuation continues to remain a bit expensive at 16.5x forward revenue.
