Okta Analyst Knocks Off Price Target By 13%, Courtesy Microsoft
  • BMO Capital analyst Keith Bachman maintained Okta Inc OKTA with an Outperform and lowered the price target from $125 to $110 ahead of its Q2 earnings this week. 
  • Bachman cited the improved capabilities and employee market wins by Microsoft Corp MSFT, which he continues to see as becoming a more formidable competitor in the workforce segment, driving his price target cut.
  • Bachman adds that Okta will continue to incur substantial losses through FY24, partially driven by the state of competition. 
  • He believes Okta is well-positioned to benefit from the ongoing shift to the cloud. 
  • He also believes the identity market offers meaningful, sustained growth, particularly with the development of consumer identities. 
  • Price Action: OKTA shares traded lower by 3.19% at $90.50 on the last check Monday.
