Zoom Video Communications

When meetings and classes moved online due to the pandemic, business at Zoom Video Communications (ZM) flourished.

But as the economy reopened, there have been concerns about the growth potential of this video communications company. It didn’t help the case that sentiment towards tech stocks in general wasn’t exactly bullish in 2022.

Over the past 12 months, Zoom shares have fallen 40%.

And that could give contrarian investors something to think about. Zoom had approximately 213,300 enterprise customers as of Feb. 27, 2023, up 12% year-over-year.

If the hybrid work environment is here to stay, it would be good news for Zoom.

RBC Capital Markets analyst Rishi Jaluria has an ‘outperform’ rating on Zoom and a price target of $95 — roughly 25% above the current levels.

Jefferies analyst Brent Thill has a ‘buy’ rating on DocuSign and a price target of $70 — about 20% higher than where the stock sits today.

Box

The company is also returning cash to investors through buybacks. In fiscal Q3, Box spent approximately $29 million repurchasing 1.1 million of its shares.

Morgan Stanley analyst Josh Baer sees better days ahead for Box. Baer has a ‘buy’ rating on the company and a price target of $39, implying a potential upside of over 40%.
