Shares of Zscaler (NASDAQ: ZS) jumped 23.4% last month, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence , following a big move higher in the wake of the company's fiscal first-quarter earnings release in December.
Zscaler's Q1 revenue surged 58.7% year over year to $63.3 million. That bested Wall Street's expectations by nearly $5 million.
Moreover, Zscaler unexpectedly delivered an adjusted profit and generated positive free cash flow -- both of which it expects to do on a consistent basis by fiscal 2020.
Better still, Zscaler boosted its full-year revenue forecast to a range of $268 million to $272 million. That, too, was well ahead of analysts' estimates, which had been for $259 million.
Zscaler's shares are essentially flat so far in February. Investors are standing pat until the cybersecurity leader's nex t earnings report, which is scheduled for Feb. 28. Zscaler will also hold an investor conference call that same day at 4:30 p.m. ET. A transcript of the call will be made available here .
