How do you feel about CrowdStrike after the results announcement? Do you expect it to continue to maintain its growth trend?

Results fine, but I would have needed the reaction to be the opposite and I could have bought. I'm really intrigued by the company and would like to include their stock in my portfolio, but the price is currently high.

I've started to like the company too, unfortunately it's only just now come into my "lens" and I'm not looking to buy at the top again, so I'll wait to see if there's an opportunity to jump in or if the train has already missed here. 🙈

The results were good and the response is probably adequate. The company has been trying to increase its profit margin, especially in recent years, which is still lower, but they are succeeding. If this trend continues, the company could be valued as high as $100 billion by the end of the year.
