So what

HubSpot has beaten revenue and profit guidance in every quarter of the past year, so it’s no wonder the stock has performed well. But it wasn’t just that he was exceeding income expectations; the company succeeded in accelerate its growth at higher rates this year than last year. For example, HubSpot posted revenue growth of 48.5% in the last quarter, much faster than the 31.7% growth recorded in the quarter of last year.

In some ways, it’s no surprise that HubSpot is doing so well in the aftermath of the pandemic. The initial core product of the business is an inbound marketing hub, which enables businesses to create online content that draws customers to a business website and other points of contact. Over time, HubSpot has expanded its offerings to include customer relationship management (CRM) software, customer service software, and content management systems (CMS). With every business needing to become a digital business over the past two years, HubSpot has taken advantage. Now that the economy is rebounding strongly, incomes are accelerating.

HubSpot continues to expand this ecosystem. In April, the company introduced Operations Hub, which allows HubSpot customers to see all of their data from multiple sources in a single unified system while automating mundane and duplicate tasks. At its October INBOUND conference, HubSpot showcased HubSpot Payments, a payment processing service built on the Stripe infrastructure and integrated into its entire ecosystem.

All of this success came despite CEO Brian Halligan suffering multiple injuries in a snowmobile crash in March. In August, Halligan decided to step down permanently as CEO and in the role of Executive Chairman while handing over the CEO role to COO Yamini Rangan. Still, it looks like the company hasn’t skipped a beat, despite Halligan’s reduced presence.

Now what

After the massive sell-off in growth stocks, HubSpot is now 39% below its all-time high of $ 866 set in November. So, is it time to buy?

Granted, I have admired HubSpot for a long time, but I missed the boat in its terrific run because I always thought the stock was a bit pricey. But after that massive sell-off, the stock is now trading around 20 times the sales, which isn’t bad for a software company with almost 50% revenue growth.

In mid-December, Goldman Sachs analysts launched a cover on HubSpot with a “Buy” rating and a price target of $ 953, citing proven execution and the fact that Amazon would have been interested at one point in buying HubSpot for $ 38 billion, 58% more than its current market cap.

It’s unclear if this is the bottom for HubSpot and other high growth, multi-faceted tech stocks, as much of the price action appears to be driven by inflation numbers and actions of the Federal Reserve. If inflation is more severe and lasts longer than expected, HubSpot could continue to decline. But if inflation starts to drop and the Fed sticks to its plan, the action could find its way here and potentially resume its rise.

If you take a look at top software stocks in the midst of the recent bloodshed, HubSpot should be on your watchlist as it has earned its place in that first tier after its 2021 blockbuster. will monitor in 2022.
