Analysts shrug off Slack's loss guidance

|About: Slack Technologies, Inc. (WORK)|By:, SA News Editor

Morgan Stanley analyst Keith Weiss (Equal-Weight, $38 target) says the market set the bar too high for Slack (NYSE:WORK) to reach in yesterday's earnings report.

Weiss: "While Slack missed the market's expectations for a greater acceleration in billings growth in Q2, the fundamental value proposition and large market opportunity at Slack remain unchanged."

KeyBanc's Brent Bracelin (Overweight, $44) says $8M in customer credits tied to the service outage hit the Q2 numbers, and raises his estimates slightly on the belief that a reliability snapback, strong enterprise traction, and a shared channel offering could lead to H2 strength.

WORK shares are down 3.4% to $29.94. The company has an Outperform average Sell Side rating.
