Avalara, Inc. (NYSE:AVLR) shareholders might be concerned after seeing the share price drop 17% in the last quarter...
For growth stocks, Wall Street pros suggest looking at the bigger picture. We mean taking a step back and searching for names capable of rewarding investors for years to come rather than in just the short-term. However, finding these stocks with explosive growth prospects isn’t always easy.That’s where TipRanks.com comes in. Using the platform’s in-depth market data, we were able to zero in on 3 stocks set to see huge gains in the long-run. Having earned enough support from the Street’s analysts in the last three months, all of these names have “Strong Buy” consensus ratings.If that wasn’t captivating enough, analysts note that each of the stocks’ strong growth narratives aren’t fully factored into their share prices, representing a compelling entry point.With this in mind, let’s dive in. Avalara, Inc. (AVLR) Avalara offers customers automated and cloud-based software to make it easier to comply with ever-changing tax laws. With another solid quarterly performance under its belt and an already posted year-to-date gain of 128%, analysts believe AVLR is still undervalued as it’s right on track to deliver massive returns.During its most recent quarter, AVLR was able to report a revenue and earnings beat thanks to substantial customer additions. We’re talking 810 new customers added vs J.P. Morgan analyst Sterling Auty’s estimate of 300. Not to mention the company reached an all-time high net retention rate of 113% and management guided around 25% revenue growth for 2020\. While the results represented a loss, Auty tells investors not to fear as AVLR is just getting started. “We think the stock still has room to move higher driven by these secular growth factors and a valuation that is below many other premium names,” he commented. The five-star analyst adds that its 2020 revenue guidance “likely provides ample opportunity to under promise and over deliver”. As a result, Auty kept his Buy rating and $104 price target. This target conveys his confidence in AVLR’s ability to climb 46% higher over the next twelve months. (To watch Auty’s track record, click here) Like Auty, the rest of the Street has high hopes for AVLR. As 100% of the analysts that have published ratings in the last three months were bullish, AVLR is a ‘Strong Buy’. Additionally, its $98 average price target indicates 37% upside potential. (See Avalara stock analysis on TipRanks) The Trade Desk, Inc. (TTD)This year has seen Trade Desk cement its status as a stand-out growth name, rising 68% year-to-date to be exact. Even though shares have stumbled in the last week, several top analysts cite the online advertising marketplace as a force to be reckoned with.According to its third quarter results, it’s clear why TTD is on Wall Street’s radar. The company surpassed the consensus estimates for both revenue and earnings as well as upped its guidance for the fourth quarter. While this guidance was disappointing for some investors, SunTrust Robinson analyst Youssef Squali argues that TTD is holding up well against the expanding total available market and has been steadily improving margins. Squali also highlights TTD based on its stellar 95%-plus customer retention rate in the quarter as well as its continued efforts to capitalize on international opportunities and a more-data driven approach from agencies and brands. Meanwhile, RBC Capital’s Mark Mahaney believes that TTD is “one of the best positioned stocks to benefit from the shift to streaming” thanks to its rapidly growing connected TV (CTV) segment. The CTV business has grown about 145% year-over-year following many previous quarters of triple digit growth rates. “We estimate CTV to account for close to 20% of TTD’s Revenue in 2020 – and the recent deal with Amazon Fire TV / APS is further evidence of their strong positioning,” he noted. Bearing this in mind, both of the five-star analysts maintain a bullish thesis. Out of the two, Squali sees the largest potential twelve-month gain, with the forecast coming in at 46%. (To watch Squali’s track record, click here) In general, other analysts are on the same page. 6 Buy ratings and 2 Holds assigned in the last three months add up to a ‘Strong Buy’ consensus. The average price target of $247 brings the upside potential to 26%. (See Trade Desk stock analysis on TipRanks) Catalent Inc. (CTLT)Catalent is known for providing integrated services, superior drug delivery technologies and manufacturing solutions to help launch pharmaceuticals, biologics and other consumer health products. With it starting off its fiscal year on a positive note and its shares already up 59% year-to-date, the Street has its eye on CTLT.CTLT’s solid fiscal Q1 2020 performance, which included a 2% EBITDA beat and 11% organic growth, was fueled largely by its Paragon acquisition. In addition, management reaffirmed ibuprofen supply stability for Softgel by pointing out that it has alternative sources to mitigate any possible disruptions in the future. It should also be noted that its strength in the oral drug delivery business stands to drive significant gains for CTLT. All of this played into UBS analyst Daniel Brennan’s conclusion that the company is in it for the long-haul. While acknowledging the tempered stock reaction to these developments, he remains optimistic about CTLT’s prospects. “We see the lack of share price reaction as an opportunity to reiterate our buy rating,” Brennan explained. Along with his Buy rating, the analyst set a $66 price target. Based on this target, shares could surge 33% over the next twelve months. (To watch Brennan’s track record, click here) Similarly, the rest of the Street likes what it’s seeing. With 4 Buy ratings compared to 1 Hold issued in the last three months, CTLT has a ‘Strong Buy’ analyst consensus. On top of this, its $61 average price target implies 23% upside potential.

There are over 5,200 stock analysts working on Wall Street, and all of them claim to have some insight into the markets. But who is the best?Canaccord Genuity’s Richard Davis stands out as 1, according to the results of TipRanks natural language algorithms, which have sifted through 5,200 analysts' reports on more than 5,000 actively traded stocks. In that list, Davis’s stock recommendations have a success rate of 85%, and the average return from the stocks he recommends is 46.6%.Davis is an expert in the stock market’s technology sector, where he has compiled an enviable record as an analyst and earned the 1 spot in TipRank’s database. Let’s look at his three most recent stock calls, to find out what Wall Street’s best analyst is interested in today. Avalara, Inc. (AVLR)Avalara is a provider of cloud-based tax compliance software. As tax law grows ever more complicated across jurisdictions, and accountants more expensive, high-quality tax software is filling a vital niche, allowing people to handle the routine matters of tax compliance, filing, and record keeping on their own.The company went public in June 2018, with a price range of $19 to $21 per share. It has appreciated 309% since then, quadrupling in value. Davis examined the stock on August 25, and noted, “[Avalara] is well positioned and well managed to automate desultory business tasks so that humans can focus on more value-created activities. Its current valuation is high, but we see the potential for perhaps a decade of 20%+ growth.” In line with that assessment, Davis rated Avalara as a Buy. He put a $100 price target on the stock, indicating a 16% upside potential in the next 12 months.Davis is not alone taking a bullish stance on AVLR. The stock has a unanimous analyst consensus of Strong Buy, from 7 buy ratings in the last three months. Shares are trading for $86, and the $101 average price target suggests an upside of 17%. Dynatrace, Inc. (DT)Davis’s second call from August 25 was Dynatrace, a software intelligence company that had its IPO this past August 1. The company markets to medium and large businesses, with artificial intelligence software designed to manage and monitor cloud infrastructure. It’s a growing field in the software world.In his note on DT stock, Davis says, “The company leads the way in next-gen software intelligence. The company is generating positive operating cash flow margins of 25%+ this year.” Those margins are key, and in response Davis gives DT shares a Buy rating. His $30 price target indicates confidence in a 25% upside for this newcomer to the stock markets.Dynatrace shares have a Moderate Buy from the analyst consensus, based on 6 buys and 3 holds given in the first month of trading. The average price target of $28.44 implies an upside potential of 19% from the current share price of $23.90. Salesforce.com, Inc. (CRM)The third stock that caught Davis’s attention recently is Salesforce, something of a household name in the cloud software world. The company was an early leader in the field of Customer Relationship Management (hence it’s ticker, CRM) software back in 1999, and remains at the head of its field today. Last week, Salesforce released blockbuster quarterly earnings numbers that beat the forecasts and guided toward accelerating growth in the next 6 months.The quarterly results, with their 22% year-over-year revenue gain and 40% EPS beat, got Davis’s attention. He described the company’s fiscal Q2 as “solid” and raised his price target by 5.7% to $185. Davis wrote, “The results were good in every metric that mattered and allayed investor fears of a slowdown. We like the reasonable current valuation…” His price target on CRM suggests a 22% upside for the stock.Overall, CRM holds a Strong Buy rating in the analyst consensus. The stock has racked up a total of 29 buys in the last three months, against a single hold. Shares are selling for $151, the average price target is $186, and the upside potential is an impressive 23%.Visit TipRanks’ Top Experts, and find out what other stocks top analyst Richard Davis and his peers are following now.
