Why Has LiveRamp Holdings Stock Gained 20% The Last Month?

LiveRamp Holdings (NYSE: RAMP), a software as a service (SaaS) company that helps to match customer data sets for brands and marketers, has seen its stock price rise by more than 20% over the last month. The rally is likely driven by the company’s Q2 FY’20 results (FY ends March) which came in better than expected, with adjusted net loss per share standing at -$0.23 beating consensus by $0.06 and revenues also topping analyst estimates, driven by strong subscription revenue growth. The company also raised its guidance for FY’20, indicating that revenue for the year would grow by between 32% to 33% year-over-year (including acquisitions) compared to previous guidance of 27% to 32%, while narrowing its guidance for its adjusted net losses.
