Snowflake: Rapid Growth Doesn't Cut It Just Yet

Snowflake continues to grow at a rapid pace and, more importantly, the business is now generating positive cash flows and EBITDA. This trend looks set to continue and will likely allow bottom line performance to improve drastically. However, even this rapid growth makes justifying the company's current share price difficult. Eventually, the company will grow into its valuation, but this could take a good deal of time.
