CrowdStrike (NASDAQ:CRWD) stock is up 13% after the company issued quarterly earnings that beat Wall Street estimates.
CrowdStrike reported adjusted fourth-quarter earnings per share (EPS) of 30 cents, beating the consensus estimate of 20 cents. That compares to EPS of 13 cents a year ago. The latest quarterly results represent an earnings beat to the upside of 50%.

The earnings beat has led analysts to revise their projections and ratings on CrowdStrike stock. BTIG moved quickly and raised its rating on the stock to “buy” from “neutral” and set a $257 price target, which is 51% higher than CRWD stock’s closing price yesterday on March 9 of $169.79.
