Palantir's Hype Train Crashed - The Bears Could Have Been Right After All

Since our last bullish articles, we believe it is time for us to take a step back and understand the market dynamics, especially for PLTR stock. Given its "meme stock status," lack of GAAP profitability, historical SBC, the PLTR stock had been bashed often times by its own investors. Given the softer FQ2'22 guidance and potential recession affecting commercial growth, PLTR stock could further retrace to new lows. That would prove the bears right and the old bullish me wrong.

Palantir: Smashing SBC Myths

Palantir stock is perplexing because it has strong revenue growth and strong cash flows, but also a lot of stock-based compensation (SBC). Its operating cash flow has been positive for over a year but GAAP earnings are always negative due to SBC and other non-cash costs. In this article, I unravel the mystery surrounding Palantir's stock-based compensation and other employee benefits. Ultimately, I conclude that the stock is a 'hold' because its non-cash costs offset its cash flows significantly.
