Top 3 Big-Data Stocks for 2012
Set against this backdrop, Teradata shares have climbed more than 40% this year. Technical analysis of the stock, however, suggests that it's still somewhat undervalued and has more room to grow.
"Our overall sense is that the demand environment remains healthy for Teradata's solutions and that the company remains comfortable with its first-quarter guidance of 'good revenue growth' and full year expectations of 10% to 12% revenue growth (11% to 13% at constant currency)," explained JMP's McDowell, in a recent note. "We continue to like Teradata because it is the leading data warehousing vendor and we believe it stands to benefit from the big data trend more than any other technology vendor."
JMP rates Teradata 'market outperform' and has a $72 price target on the stock.
TheStreet Ratings rates Teradata 'buy', citing the firm's revenue growth, compelling growth in net income, and its solid financial position.
