After a 2-month stock slide, Q3 could bring Alteryx’s deflection point

Since September 5, when Alteryx (NYSE: AYX) stock hit an all-time high, the stock has tanked 37%. This is the same stock that has registered 147% growth in 12 months leading up to the grand sell-off.

The stock sell-off was hardly anything relating to the company, rather it was part of an industry -wide decline. In fact, market experts believe this has opened up a buy opportunity for the stock, which has been delivering staggering operational performance. Alteryx is set to report its third-quarter financial results on Thursday, October 31, after the closing bell, and if all goes well, it could be the deflection point that investors have been waiting for so long.
