Workday stock gains after Goldman upgrades to buyWorkday Inc. shares are up 3.3% in premarket trading Friday after Goldman Sachs analyst Heather Bellini upgraded the stock to buy from neutral. She sees a more attractive entry point now that the company's enterprise-value-to-sales multiple has fallen by more than 20% since its peak in July, compared to 14% for mid-growth software peers and 2% for high-growth software peers. Bellini also points to momentum for Workday's financials offering, which she said is becoming more competitive as more large enterprise customers conduct cloud-based financial migrations. "While Workday has had success in cross-selling its Financials business to existing human-capital management (HCM) customers, reaching 25% penetration of its core HCM base, our industry conversations indicate that over the past year, Workday has had success landing new customers with Financials and is steadily building a list of referenceable large enterprise customers, while expanding the company's international market presence," Bellini wrote. She maintained her $223 price target on the stock, which has dropped 22% over the past three months as the S&P 500 has lost about 2%.
