SentinelOne (S) is the IBD Stock Of The Day as the newly public cybersecurity firm scored a bunch of positive coverage initiation reports Monday from Wall Street analysts. SentinelOne stock is forming an IPO base.

SentinelOne makes cybersecurity solutions powered by artificial intelligence. Its offerings cover prevention, detection, response and hunting across endpoints, containers, cloud workloads, and Internet of Things devices from a single autonomous platform.
At least 13 Wall Street firms initiated coverage of SentinelOne stock on Monday. Of those, 11 gave it buy ratings while two were neutral.
“A rapidly changing threat environment requires an adaptable, data-driven approach to security, which SentinelOne provides with its AI-powered ‘XDR’ platform,” Morgan Stanley analyst Hamza Fodderwala said in a note to clients. XDR stands for “extended detection and response.”
Legacy cybersecurity tools have not kept pace with the fast-changing threat landscape, he said. SentinelOne’s platform better adapts to evolving threats by evaluating threat data in real time using machine learning and artificial intelligence, Fodderwala said.
Competes With CrowdStrike
The shift to cloud computing and remote work has increased the need for more capable cybersecurity solutions, he said.
Fodderwala rates SentinelOne stock as overweight, or buy, with a price target of 56.
SentinelOne competes with CrowdStrike (CRWD) and others in the next-generation cybersecurity market.
Wells Fargo Securities analyst Andrew Nowinski started coverage of SentinelOne stock with an overweight rating and price target of 55.
“We believe SentinelOne can drive revenue growth for the foreseeable future simply by continuing to take share from the legacy endpoint security providers (McAfee, Symantec/Broadcom, Trend Micro), which have not kept pace with the innovation of SentinelOne,” Nowinski said in a note to clients.
