Is Pure Storage stock a ‘buy’ on raised guidance?

Pure Storage Inc (NYSE: PSTG) jumped nearly 8.0% in extended trading on Wednesday after the data storage provider reported better-than-expected revenue for its fiscal second quarter and raised guidance for the future.

Should you buy Pure Storage stock?

Versus its year-to-date low, the Pure Storage stock is now up roughly 40%. Still, Danielle Shay – Director of Options at Simpler Trading is convinced it’s not out of juice yet. On CNBC’s “The Exchange”, she said:

I really like Pure Storage. It’s above a key support. I like the target of $35 a share on this one. If we can make that target, then I’m going to continue targeting upward to $40 a share.

For the full financial year, Pure Storage now forecasts $2.75 billion in revenue, including $670 million roughly this quarter. It expects $390 million of adjusted operating income on about a 14% operating margin (adjusted) in fiscal 2023. Shay added:

Tech is weak right now but Pure Storage is an incredible relative strength winner.

Wall Street also recommends that you buy Pure Storage stock as it has upside to $37 on average.
