Undoubtedly, cloud services companies like Okta (NASDAQ:OKTA) offer the most relevant products and platforms. With more organizations taking advantage of the connectivity and cost efficiencies that cloud functions provide, OKTA stock has witnessed a surge in buying interest.Source: Sundry Photography / Shutterstock.com That said, the industry is still relatively in its infancy. While early leaders like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) have emerged to take the lead, there's no guarantee that they'll keep it. Technology is always in flux, and demand -- or lack thereof -- can change on a dime.Previously, this circumstance has benefited Okta stock. But recently, Wall Street has apparently take a dim view on the cloud and various tech names. On Monday, OKTA stock dropped nearly 10%. That made it one of the worst performers of the day.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips What Happened to OKTA Stock?Naturally, whenever we see a massive hemorrhaging in the markets, we want (or demand) an explanation. In most cases, the answer is apparent: A company flubbed an earnings report or the industry faces a decimation in revenue-making opportunities. * 7 Stocks to Buy In a Flat Market But with Okta stock, none of these things apply. For one thing, shares have absolutely skyrocketed this year. Even with Monday's market erosion, OKTA is up almost 73%. That, my friends, is what we call resiliency.It also points to the fact that, up until at least recently, investors believed in the narrative for OKTA stock. A quick rundown of their client list reads like a "who's who" of major industry players. For example, we're talking about names like JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ:JBLU), Adobe (NASDAQ:ADBE), and Western Union (NYSE:WU).Fundamentally Okta stock is on the up and up. About two weeks ago, OKTA released its earnings report for the second quarter of fiscal 2020. As a bull, the company provided exactly what you could hope to expect. On the profitability front, the company narrowed an expected loss of 10 cents per share to a loss of 5 cents. On the top line, OKTA rang up $140.5 million, easily surpassing the consensus estimate of $131 million.Yet OKTA stock dropped on the financial disclosure, puzzling many onlookers. Curiously, shares never really recovered. For those hoping that Monday would provide a fresh spark, they were obviously badly disappointed.Worst of all, no one knows why. However, peer-to-peer comparisons offer some clues. For example, several rivals, including Twilio (NYSE:TWLO) incurred double-digit losses on Monday. Although it's speculation, investors may be rotating out of tech plays and into what are perceived as safer opportunities. Portfolio Shifting May Have Hurt OKTA StockIn the absence of a better explanation, investors probably shifted their exposure to safer bets. This in turn created, and then later amplified, volatility in OKTA stock.First, while the cloud services company's bulls have lauded its growth trajectory, I must bring up the counterargument: The robustness of that growth has declined significantly in magnitude.For example, back in Q1 of calendar 2017, OKTA generated $49.3 million, which was good for an 82% lift from the year-ago quarter. In the most recent earnings report, the year-over-year lift was comparatively small at 48.5%. With the exception of a few quarters, the sales growth rate has consistently declined between Q1 2017 to Q2 2019.Ordinarily, that shouldn't cause panic. Because of the law of small numbers, it is increasingly difficult to sustain outrageously high growth rates as the nominal revenues get bigger. However, OKTA's quarterly revenue is now $140 million, which isn't that big compared to its market capitalization of $13 billion. Thus, investors might be freaked out about the rich premium on Okta stock.A second point to consider is which names jumped on Monday. I can't help but notice that energy-related names, like Helmerich and Payne (NYSE:HP) and National Oilwell Varco (NYSE:NOV) outperformed. Perhaps with the noise President Donald Trump's administration has been making geopolitically, investors see value in recently undervalued companies. How to Approach OKTAOverall, I have reservations about engaging a technically overheated play like OKTA stock. Even with Monday's decline, I still have these reservations.Irrespective of your opinion about Okta stock, we must respect that the markets severely penalized it. With the volatility, shares are now sandwiched in between the 50-day moving average and the 200-day moving average. It's currently straddling an area of weak support, suggesting further volatility.For conservative investors, I'd stay away for now. If on the other hand you're bullish on OKTA, you might enjoy this discount. Still, my bet is that a deeper discount lies ahead for those who wait.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

(Bloomberg) -- Hurricane Dorian, working its way up the U.S. East Coast, is nearing Georgia and the Carolinas after sweeping past Florida with nowhere near the force it brought to bear killing at least 20 people in the Bahamas.Dorian brought life-threatening storm surges as it reached about 105 miles (170 kilometers) south-southeast of Charleston, South Carolina, the National Hurricane Center said in an 2 a.m. New York time advisory. The storm’s sustained winds strengthened to 115 miles per hour, regaining Category 3 status.The hurricane’s first landfall in the U.S. could come near Wilmington, North Carolina, or further up the coast on the Outer Banks, said Thomas Downs, a meteorologist with WeatherBell Analytics in New York. There’s a chance Dorian could strengthen, he said.“Right now the system is starting to tighten up,” Downs said. The storm was moving northward at about 7 mph, according to the advisory, with the center of Dorian expected to approach the South Carolina coast on Thursday morning.Meanwhile, the Bahamas is starting to assess the damage from the strongest storm to hit the island nation in modern history, with Prime Minister Hubert Minnis confirming in a press conference at least 20 people have died on Abaco Island, with that number expected to increase, according to the Bahamas Press.President Donald Trump has declared a state of emergency in North Carolina, clearing the way for U.S. disaster relief. With the storm widening out, “coastal areas of Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina will likely receive stronger winds than Florida,” Todd Crawford, chief meteorologist at the Weather Co., an IBM business, said in an email.South Carolina, he said, “may receive a foot of rain.”The hurricane couldn’t be arriving at a worse time for farmers in the region raising cotton, tobacco, hemp and corn. Fields were maturing and high winds could deal a potentially devastating blow before farmers have a chance to harvest.In the Bahamas, meanwhile, waters were receding on Thursday from a storm surge that reached 23 feet at times during the two days Dorian sat over the archipelago. Minnis said he expects the death toll to rise, noting in a news conference that parts of Abaco -- the area first hit by the storm -- have been “decimated” with “severe damage to homes, businesses and other buildings and infrastructure.”Minnis said in a tweet that he spoke with Trump and Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who both pledged assistance to Grand Bahama and Abaco. The damage wrought upon the islands is likely to run into “hundreds of millions if not billions,” the Nassau Guardian newspaper cited Deputy Prime Minister Peter Turnquest as saying. Large tracts of homes are under water, and the government intends to make formal appeals for assistance, he said. Outbreaks of looting are adding to the country’s misery.As Dorian lumbered north, power companies in the Southeast scrambled to prepare.Duke Energy Corp, which owns several utilities in the region, released out-of-state workers it had dispatched to Florida in advance of the storm and instead readied crews in the Carolinas. Santee Cooper, which supplies power to 2 million people in South Carolina, has a crew of more than 800 standing by for recovery efforts. The company estimates as many as 700,000 could lose power from the storm.Cities further up the coast were preparing. Sandbags have been distributed in Charleston and the city encouraged some residents to park their vehicles on higher ground. The city council also approved an emergency order to enact a curfew, should one be necessary, according to a tweet. Local and state governments in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas have ordered coastline residents and businesses to begin evacuations.“Please listen to and follow all evacuation orders,” North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said in a statement announcing a mandatory evacuation order for the state’s tourist-friendly coast. “We have seen the life and death effects of this storm in the Bahamas, and we urge everyone on the islands at the coast to leave.”Looking forward, the storm will sweep by Cape Cod in Massachusetts over the weekend, where it could bring tropical storm conditions, the National Weather Service said.To map assets in Hurricane Dorian’s path, click here.(Updates storm’s intensity and location.)\--With assistance from Sharon Cho, David R.
