AYX shares gained 3.2% immediately following the announcement. The stock, which has gained 39% since the beginning of this year, has soared over 9 times since its IPO three years ago.
Historically, Alteryx is often seen giving conservative guidance, which it beats handsomely when the announcement is made.
