Alteryx is a provider of data science and analytics software for companies. Its software accelerates the data analysis process. According to the company’s website, Alteryx delivers an end-to-end platform that unifies the analytic experience. Customers include Audi, Ford Motor (F) and McDonald’s (MCD).
The company is in the midst of a stunning turnaround, having lost 37 cents per share in 2015. Three years later, Alteryx’s loss is expected to be just 3 cents per share. Earnings are most likely due out in late February, so there is plenty of time for the breakout to take hold. Consensus estimates project the firm to post a fourth quarter loss of 2 cent a share on revenue of $57.4 million.
Oppenheimer called Alteryx one of its top picks for 2019. The analyst firm believes Alteryx is positioned to benefit from favorable secular trends driving enterprise digitization and a rise in the importance of data citizens.
