The stock’s surge prompts a critical juncture for analysts – should they downgrade the valuation or consider raising the target price in light of positive business developments propelling the stock’s climb?

Varying Analyst Targets for Pegasystems Inc

Pegasystems Inc has garnered 11 different analyst targets within the Zacks coverage universe, culminating in the average target price.

Perspective on the Average Target Price

When investors examine the average PEGA target price, they tap into the collective wisdom of multiple analysts rather than relying on a single expert’s assessment.
