BofA analyst Daniel Bartus initiated coverage of Qualtrics with a Neutral rating and $50 price target. The analyst is positive on the company's "large and growing" total addressable market, its "strong leadership position" as highlighted by his conversations in the industry, and its "compelling" land-and-expand opportunity with customers more focused on experience management programs. Bartus warns however that Qualtrics is trading at a premium valuation of 24-times enterprise value to expected 2022 sales.

The company is "well positioned" to fully capture the emerging experience management market opportunity which is currently "highly fragmented" and "significantly underpenetrated", but at 29- and 24-times expected 2021 and 2022 sales, the stock "fairly" values its near-term opportunity, the analyst tells investors in a research note.
