Palantir has officially announced its second quarter earnings call will take place before the market opens on Thursday August 12th. The company will have big shoes to fill after Palantir saw its revenues grow by 49% year over year in the first quarter of 2021. Of interest to Wall Street will be a continued rise in the company’s commercial contract growth, which increased by 76% year over year in the first quarter.

PLTR stock forecast
Ahead of its earnings call, Wall Street is holding strong as analysts have a consensus rating of Hold for Palantir. The rating will likely change following the earnings call, although high valuations have always been the thorn in Palantir’s side, which has led to analysts being reluctant to be more bullish on the stock. The average price target remains just below $21.00, so Palantir is currently outperforming what Wall Street analysts have forecasted.
