Investment Thesis for SNOW

Snowflake is a play on the explosive growth of cloud computing and on the need for companies to crunch large amounts of data to feed and grow their businesses. It currently works with more than 200 Fortune 500 companies, who buy its software with the sanction of cloud giants Amazon (AMZN), Microsoft (MSFT) and Alphabet (GOOGLE) – generally seen as a concession that it has better tools.

Those credentials no doubt helped its large Initial public offering last September and drove shares to $429 in early December. The stock pulled back to below $200 in May, and it’s on the rise again after strong results and a raised forecast for this year. In fact, Investors Business Daily reports, the company has made the case to analysts that product revenue will grow from just over $1 billion now to $10 billion in 2028.

Short-term, this is a bet that $429 wasn’t too much to pay for that pace of growth, and $200 looked like a bargain. But with shares between $310 and $320, about the same as the average analyst 12-month estimates, this is really a long-term bet that SNOW delivers on its growth projections and continues to be a leader.

Key Risks of Snowflake Stock

On a macro level, there are increasing signs of a pullback in the market and in tech in particular. Snowflake has risen despite this backdrop, but short-term could be painful if there is a broad retreat.

Longer term, cloud computing should continue to grow and carry its leading stocks upward. The risk with a smaller player like Snowflake is that a giant, say Amazon Web Services or Oracle (ORCL), develops similar tools and squeezes the market for Snowflake’s services. There are smaller competitors as well.

Should You Invest $1,000 in Snowflake Stock Right Now?

Snowflake would appear to be a longer term buy rather than a short-term trade, with its analyst 12-month price forecast about its current trading price. If they are right, there’s not much to be made over the next year.

If you bought now at around $320 a share and it regained its record price of $429, your $1,000 would be worth $1,250. A 25% gain in a year is solid, but that’s a much better result than analysts expect.

Is Snowflake Stock Undervalued or Overvalued?

The current stock price matches analysts’ 12 month forecast, meaning the stock is close to what they think is fair value. Snowflake isn’t profitable, so you can’t go by a price-earnings ratio to judge its valuation. Investing in this stock is a bet on growth, not valuation.
