Zoom Video —Zoom rose 0.5% Mizuho initiated coverage of the stock with a buy rating and a $550 price target, noting the company can “continue to deliver outsized revenue growth due to its position as a market leader, its global recognition, cross-sell opportunities, and its position in a growing and underpenetrated long-tail market.” The analyst’s price target implies a 12-month upside of 15$ from Thursday’s close of $478.55 per share.
