Robert W. Baird Maintains a Hold Rating on Okta Inc (OKTA)


Robert W. Baird analyst Jonathan Ruykhaver maintained a Hold rating on Okta Inc (OKTA) today and set a price target of $65. The company’s shares opened today at $60.10.

Ruykhaver noted:

“We maintain our Neutral rating and $65 price target on Okta after reporting very strong FQ3 results. We believe a first mover advantage, strong competitive positioning, and a growing awareness of the importance of identity in driving agility and security for cloud is and will continue to support a robust growth opportunity for Okta. However, trading at the high-end of secular SaaS peers, we believe the opportunity is captured in current valuation.”
