Trending News 🌧️

Palantir Technologies ($NYSE:PLTR) shares slipped on Tuesday after investment firm Deutsche Bank downgraded the data analytics software company after it issued second-quarter results. Analyst Brad Zelnick cited concerns about a slowdown in Palantir’s government business and moved his rating on the company’s shares to sell from hold. Zelnick noted that Palantir does not have much going right at the current moment and put an $8 price target on the stock. “While we’ve always been more skeptical of Palantir’s commercial opportunity, our thesis was rooted in what we saw as a uniquely strong position in Public Sector,” Zelnick wrote in a note to clients. It is unclear how this downgrade will affect Palantir Technologies in the long term, but it could potentially lead to a decline in the company’s market share and earnings.
