Trade of the Day: Cornerstone OnDemand (CSOD)

Try this high-flying cloud stock trade


Cornerstone OnDemand (CSOD) is a cloud-based provider of talent-management software and services, focused on recruiting, learning management and performance management. Shares are nesting against their 30-day average after having risen up along that level all year.


Seven of eleven analysts following the stock have a “buy” rating, and it has already surpassed the consensus target of $49. However, that target is slightly skewed by some lowball estimates, like the $41.00 target from JMP Securities. However, there are certainly targets on the higher side as well, with $57.00 from Credit Suisse and $60.00 from Barclays.

So I’m anticipating it should break out again soon, as it is not expensive for a small-cap growth stock.

Recommendation: Buy CSOD for a $57 target.
