Should you bet on Zedge’s growth?
From an investment perspective, Zedge shares trade at compelling trailing 12-month P/E and forward P/E ratios of 14.51 and 13.87, respectively. Therefore, the stock could be an exciting option for bargain hunters.
On the other hand, analysts expect its earnings to rocket 1000% this year before growing by a further 20% next year. Therefore, Zedge could also gain the interest of growth investors.
Technically, Zedge shares seem to have recently spiked to complete an upward breakout from a descending channel formation. As a result, the stock appears to have fully recovered from oversold conditions creating an exciting opportunity to buy the rebound.
Therefore, investors could target extended gains at about $10.35, or higher at $11.58. On the other hand, if the stock pulls back before reaching overbought conditions, it could find support at $8.08, or lower at $6.95.
