Majority of analysts covering the company have reconfirmed their estimates over the last thirty days, suggesting they are expecting the business to stay the course heading into the earnings.

Technology stocks have been hit hard by fears of higher interest rates, and while some of the consumer subscription stocks have fared somewhat better, they have not been spared, with share price declining 3.56% over the last month. Udemy is down 3.19% during the same time, and is heading into the earnings with analyst price target of $13.4, compared to share price of $9.11.

One way to find opportunities in the market is to watch for generational shifts in the economy. Almost every company is slowly finding itself becoming a technology company and facing cybersecurity risks and as a result, the demand for cloud-native cybersecurity is skyrocketing. This company is leading a massive technological shift in the industry and with revenue growth of 70% year on year and best-in-class SaaS metrics it should definitely be on your radar.
