Factors to Watch

Cloudera’s services business is more likely to have been affected by the coronavirus-led business uncertainties than its subscription business, which benefits from a recurring-revenue model.

Notably, the company expects subscription revenues in the range of $199 million to $202 million. However, services revenues are expected at or close to the year-ago quarter levels until the economy recovers.

Additionally, Cloudera’s clientele comprises large global enterprises with strong credit profiles, thus ensuring timely payments. This bodes well for top-line growth.

Further, increased importance of data, data analysis and data security is expected to have aided the adoption of Cloudera’s hybrid cloud solutions among the pandemic.

Moreover, the general availability of Cloudera Data Platform Private Cloud (CDP Private Cloud) is expected to have aided the enterprise data cloud company’s top-line growth in the to-be reported quarter. Overall, CDP Private Cloud can deliver up to 50% more analytics for the same data center investment.

Cloudera is expected to have benefited from the adoption of CDP Private Cloud, which is built for hybrid cloud, seamlessly connecting on-premises environments to public clouds with consistent, built-in security and governance as more customers repatriate workloads from the public cloud with applications in both public and private cloud environments.

Additionally, Cloudera’s partnership with International Business Machines IBM and the launch of CDP on Amazon’s AMZN cloud arm Amazon Web Services, Microsoft’s MSFT Azure and Google cloud platform are expected to have helped this Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) company strengthen its clientele in the to-be-reported quarter.

Further, stringent cost control including reduced usage of outside contractors is expected to have benefited the bottom line in the to-be-reported quarter.

From thousands of stocks, 5 Zacks experts each have chosen their favorite to skyrocket +100% or more in months to come. From those 5, Director of Research Sheraz Mian hand-picks one to have the most explosive upside of all.

You know this company from its past glory days, but few would expect that it’s poised for a monster turnaround. Fresh from a successful repositioning and flush with A-list celeb endorsements, it could rival or surpass other recent Zacks’ Stocks Set to Double like Boston Beer Company which shot up +143.0% in a little more than 9 months and Nvidia which boomed +175.9% in one year.
