Is Sumo a growth stock?

From an investment perspective, Sumo shares trade at a reasonable price-sales ratio of 7.90, making the stock an interesting option for value investors. 

However, analysts expect its bottom line to worsen by more than 76% this year before recovering slightly by 10.70% next year.

Therefore, the stock may also not be an ideal option for growth investors.

Technically, Sumo shares seem to have recently spiked to complete an upward breakout from a descending channel formation. As a result, the stock has fully recovered from the oversold conditions of the 14-day RSI.

Therefore, with shares yet to reach overbought conditions, investors could target additional technical gains at about $17.28, or higher at $19.05, while $12.99 and $10.99, are crucial support zones.

In summary, although Sumo shares could fall in the long-term amid a declining bottom line, the stock could extend the short-term gains after a solid Q3.
