Snowflake: Finally, This Software Titan Is Worth A Nibble

Shares of Snowflake have dropped more than 50% year-to-date. Long one of the most expensive names in the enterprise software industry, Snowflake is now trading at a reasonable multiple of 2023 revenue. The company still maintains massive ~2x y/y revenue growth, and is pointing to ~60% y/y growth in 2022. Its inherently high-margin software business model has already allowed Snowflake to achieve virtually breakeven pro forma operating margins, a rarity for a company growing this quickly.

Snowflake Stock Is Finally A Buy: Aggressive Guidance To Get More Aggressive

Snowflake is one of the highest quality names in the tech sector. I didn't expect the stock to come down as much as it has, and the company is also set to aggressively increase long-term guidance. At recent prices, I could see the stock returning 20% annualized over the long term - a stunning reward proposition for such a high quality name. Snowflake may lead tech stocks higher as the pessimism fades in the sector.

Snowflake: Price Meltdown Opens Up A Decent Entry Point

Snowflake is one of the fastest-growing enterprise software companies in history. However, management's guidance for a sharp deceleration in growth is causing a meltdown in the stock. While Snowflake's valuation has moderated a lot, it may go lower in the near term. If you are pondering a long-term investment, Snowflake is a fine buy here. In this note, we will analyze Snowflake's Q4 numbers and evaluate its future prospects. I rate Snowflake a buy in the $180s.
