Cloudera Looks Ready To Continue Climbing

The 25-day quiet period on Cloudera Inc. (NYSE: CLDR) is set to expire on May 23, allowing the firm’s IPO underwriters to publish detailed positive reports and recommendations on the company.

Cloudera operates a data management, analytics software, and machine learning platform in the United States, Europe, and Asia.

Underwriters (Allen & Co., J.P. Morgan Securities, Morgan Stanley, BofA Merrill Lynch, Citigroup Global Markets, Deutsche Bank Securities, JMP Securities, Raymond James & Associates, and Stifel Nicolaus & Company) have been restricted from publishing research reports on Cloudera since the company’s IPO on 4/27; we predict the strong syndicate will be eager to release positive reports and recommendations once restrictions are lifted.

We also expect this event to lead to a boost in the stock price for Cloudera (according to our research). Investors who purchase shares prior to the 5/23 expiration date could benefit from a full ramp up in price over a multi-day period.
