UBS AG Reaffirms “Buy” Rating for HubSpot, Inc. (HUBS)

UBS AG reaffirmed their buy rating on shares of HubSpot, Inc. (NYSE:HUBS) in a research report report published on Thursday morning, www.analystratings.com reports. UBS AG currently has a $93.00 target price on the software maker’s stock.

“Consistent with our preview, HubSpot’s 3Q results were impressive, with upside to billings, 35%+ growth across leading business indicators, and management raising 2017 guidance; which support that the business is taking share of mid-market engagement technology spend. On balance, a shifting product mix will likely make ARPU trends lumpy, which may take time for investors to gain comfort with. Bottom line: 3Q results are another data point that HubSpot’s differentiation moat versus the competition is increasing in the mid-market, and the ~37% billings growth YTD lays a solid foundation for growth in 2018, giving us an upward bias to consensus estimates. HubSpot’s streak of improving business fundamentals in upcoming quarterly results is likely to continue.”,” the firm’s analyst commented.
