Time to Focus on Elastic (ESTC) for Strong Earnings Growth Potential

Zacks Equity Research
·2 mins read

Growth stocks can be some of the most exciting picks in the market, as these high-flyers can captivate investors’ attention, and produce big gains as well. However, they can also lead on the downside when the growth story is over, so it is important to find companies which are still seeing strong growth prospects in their businesses.

One such company that might be well-positioned for future earnings growth is Elastic N.V. ESTC. This firm, which is in the Technology Services industry, saw EPS growth of 16.2% last year, and is looking great for this year too.

In fact, the current growth estimate for this year calls for earnings-per-share growth of 21.5%. Furthermore, the long-term growth rate is currently an impressive 25.9%, suggesting pretty good prospects for the long haul.

Thanks to this rise in earnings estimates, ESTC has a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) which further underscores the potential for outperformance in this company. You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.

So, if you are looking for a fast-growing stock that is still seeing plenty of opportunities on the horizon, make sure to consider ESTC. Not only does it have double-digit earnings growth prospects, but its impressive Zacks Rank suggests that analysts believe better days are ahead for ESTC as well.

The Hottest Tech Mega-Trend of All

Last year, it generated $24 billion in global revenues. By 2020, it's predicted to blast through the roof to $77.6 billion. Famed investor Mark Cuban says it will produce "the world's first trillionaires," but that should still leave plenty of money for regular investors who make the right trades early.
