Canaccord Genuity Maintains Their Buy Rating on Kinaxis Inc (KXS)


Kinaxis Inc (KXS), the Technology company, was revisited by a Wall Street analyst today. Analyst Robert Young from Canaccord Genuity rated Kinaxis Inc (KXS) a Buy, setting a C$97.50 price target.

Young noted:

“Kinaxis reported disappointing Q3 results, leaving room for doubt ahead of the Q4 print and 2019 full year guide. A miss in the current environment will likely be met with a sharp sell-off which we believe is a buying opportunity. Management indicated that the total subscription revenue miss ($27.7M vs. CG est. C$28.2M) was attributable to “late stage deals slipping outside of Q3”. Nonetheless, Kinaxis remains confident on an acceleration in growth in 2019, albeit unquantified. We expect a return to 25%+ subscription growth alongside 25%+ EBITDA margin, the company’s historical target. Kinaxis has a small number (CG est. ~135) of customers who are signed up to large 3-5 year subscription contracts (average > C$1M/year).”

Young has an average return of 25.2% when recommending Kinaxis Inc.

According to TipRanks.com, Young is ranked #402 out of 4912 analysts.
