Stocks have been under pressure as inflation (despite slowing) makes their long-dated profits less valuable, and while some of the advertising software stocks have fared somewhat better, they have not been spared, with share price declining 2.9% over the last month. Zeta is up 3.1% during the same time, and is heading into the earnings with analyst price target of $14.2, compared to share price of $10.3.
