Wedbush analyst, Steve Koenig, reiterated his Outperform rating on shares of Splunk (NASDAQ: SPLK) and raised the price target to $75 after the company demonstrated solidly consistent execution with licenses, billings, and total revenue all growing 30-40% Y/Y or higher. Additionally, the analyst's checks support the notion that SPLK’s market opportunity and strong competitive position will translate to sustainable long-term growth and operating leverage.

Despite smaller sizes for SPLK’s top deals than the year-ago quarter, the company beat and raised guidance by growing its cloud business by about 200% Y/Y. The analyst hopes to see greater transparency at the forthcoming January 12th investor day.

The new $75 PT is up from $72.
