UBS analyst Taylor McGinnis initiates coverage on Anaplan Inc. (NYSE: PLAN) with a Buy rating and a price target of $72.00.

The analyst comments "We have consistently heard that back-office application initiatives have been less of a near-term priority and slower to recover during the pandemic, yet we believe that PLAN’s 2QF22 results combined with our +15 partner and customer checks suggest that a recovery in deal activity is beginning to materialize and has the potential to be stronger in 4QF22/1HF23. We think this and evidence of greater future demand for modern planning tools (now viewed as more critical) will help support durable 30%-plus revenue growth over the medium-term (we’re conservatively modeling 27% growth). We have conviction that PLAN can materially re-rate in this scenario, as well as with continued margin expansion approaching breakeven. Downside appears more limited given that PLAN already trades at a significant discount to peers and seems to already embed somewhat of a belief that deal activity will remain sluggish and improve more gradually.
