Shares of Sprinklr Inc (NYSE: CXM) are up nearly 20% this morning on solid results for the fiscal third quarter that prompted analysts to bump up their price targets on the stock. In the earnings press release, CEO Ragy Thomas said:

It’s our 4th straight quarter of accelerating revenue growth. Sprinklr is well-positioned to become the strategic partner brands need to unify customer experiences across channels, teams, markets, and products for a truly unified experience.

Q3 financial performance

Sprinklr said it lost $29.2 million in Q3 that translates to 6 cents per share adjusted, nearly half of its net loss in the same quarter last year. At $127.1 million, the software company noted an annualised growth of 32% in quarterly revenue.

Analysts see massive upside in CXM

The stock also got a boost from two analysts, both of whom confirmed that CXM had significant room to run in the coming months.
