Needham & Company analyst Ryan Koontz initiates coverage on Twilio (NYSE: TWLO) with a Buy rating and a price target of $430.00.
The analyst commented, "We initiate coverage of TWLO with a Buy rating and a PT of $430. We see TWLO as a global leader in several fast-growing market segments that enable digital customer engagement. Despite an increasingly competitive landscape, we see TWLO's innovation and unique developer-focused go-to-market as strong differentiators capable of sustaining the company's market share. TWLO ranks among our top picks in our coverage.
We view consensus revenue estimates as easily achievable and think it unlikely that the easing of pandemic restrictions will slow global CPaaS adoption. With the pull-back in high-growth valuations, we see TWLO's current share price as an attractive entry point. Our $430 price target is equivalent to an EV/Sales multiple of ~22x our C22 estimate."
Shares of Twilio closed at $367.61 yesterday.
