Goldman Sachs analyst Christopher Merwin raised the firm's price target on ServiceNow (NOW) to $538 from $403 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares. In light of the current interest rate environment, the analyst adjusted assumptions in the discounted cash flow component of his valuation methodology, which drives increased price targets across the software sector. The "resiliency" of the sector throughout COVID-19 underscores the "criticality" of many software categories as businesses adjust for more distributed workforces and therefore require modernized cloud systems, Merwin tells investors in a research note. With sector multiples at all-time highs, the analyst favors stocks where he sees "compelling relative value." Merwin's best ideas currently are ServiceNow, Splunk (SPLK), Alteryx (AYX) and HubSpot (HUBS).
