What is it about Palantir technologies stock (PLTR). Most of the people I know are talking about it, some are holding big amounts. Is it a promising stock?

I sure as hell hope so. 🙏 It’s all about making sense of the mountains of data you gave from multiple sources and systems. Putting it all together to help make better decisions. Applications from fighting terrorism to supply chain management and everything in between.

My hope is that it turns into a competitive advantage and something businesses have to do to keep pace.

They are ramping up their sales efforts and hopefully will see results in a couple quarters. They also are allowing customers to use modules rather than buying the entire platform to provide more cost efficient solutions.

A lot of people were fooled into thinking it would be the next big FAANG stock and to buy in early. Myself included, but I sold when it was still semi hot in the 20s.

Truth is, its just another company with promise but huge losses and massive stock dilution. And, there isn't full clarity on what they even do, so there are two camps, one very bullish one very bearish.

Great leadership, and the product is unique and very forward looking. Biggest bear case imo is that Microsoft creates a product that competes and eats up commercial market share however they have a lot of catching up to do

The buy side research I follow is saying their product isn’t a cutting edge as stock chasers think and that much of it assumes a workflow where someone is visually looking at the screen. The counterterrorism groups it was designed for are finding it a limitation and private sector is seeing more limited applications for their use cases.

That’s 3rd hand, so do with it what you will. I just know in my own world I want tools that allow me to manage by exception, not have to manually look to see if something has changed or needs attention.

Be interested to see that research. I've only talked to one person who's had hands-on experience with their software but said they're so far ahead of everyone else it defies comparison, but that closest he could think of was comparing Windows 10 to Windows 95.

As someone who has seen it very closely, plenty of other companies do exactly what palantir does without the bad brand. company has poor leadership and lack of organization. the only thing keeping it afloat are government contracts. a pre ipo to watch- databricks

Curious what other companies do the same or better with a better leadership setup. I was in the process of pursuing a job at Palantir. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Held for sale question. If a property meets held for sale criteria and is sold in the same Q, it would’t appear on the balance sheet for that Q (since it’s disposed of), but would you have to show the real estate held for sale amount in the prior period included in the balance sheet? So 03/31/21 and 12/31/20 comparative BS and property sold on 03/03/21. It is excluded from balance sheet at 03/31/21 but is it reclassed as “held for sale” for 12/31/20 presented period w/ added footnote?
