Why Smartsheet Stock Is Up Almost 20% Over The Last Month

Smartsheet (NYSE:SMAR)  a software as a service (SaaS) company that offers collaboration and work management tools, has seen its stock price rise by about 18% over the last month. While the stock saw a sell-off in September, amid weaker guidance for Q3 2020 (FY ends January 31, 2019), it has recovered over the last month or so, driven partly by positive sentiment post its analyst day conference conducted in early October. The company also continues to post robust top-line growth (projected at 50% for FY’20). The company is also doing a good job with retaining customers and increasing subscriptions among existing enterprises, with the Dollar-Based Net Retention Rate expanding by 3% to 134% in Q2.
