CrowdStrike's "New Milestones"

Shares of CrowdStrike (Nasdaq: CRWD) dipped 0.41% in after-hours trading on Tuesday after the cybersecurity company posted positive financial earnings results.

Financials: Crowdstrike reported earnings per share of 36 cents and revenue of $535.2 million; both were better than expected.

Strong Results: The company said it delivered “new milestones” across the business, namely growing annual recurring revenue 59% to $2.14 billion and netting a record 1,741 new subscription customers in the quarter.

Outlook: The company sees revenue in the current quarter between $569.1 million to $575.9 million and for the full-year between $2.223 billion to $2.232 billion; both were better than expected.

Quote: “As organizations respond to macroeconomic conditions, they are prioritizing investments and looking to standardize with a security partner they can trust to achieve better protection with less time, fewer resources and lower total cost of ownership.” - George Kurtz, CrowdStrike’s co-founder and chief executive officer.

Final Thoughts: While the stock is down 2% this year, it’s better than most tech stocks. Crowdstrike benefits from an environment with strong cybersecurity demand.
