by: STA Research

Goldman Sach’s analyst Heather Bellini downgraded Slack Technologies today to Sell from Neutral, and maintained her target of $30 on the stock. The basis for the downgrade is the intense competition Slack is facing from Microsoft’s Team platform.  While Bellini believes that  Slack’s messaging service is the best available, the increasing adoption of Microsoft 360 is a risk factor to their subscriber churn.

STA Research(stocktargetadvisor) has a average target of $30 on the stock, and a consensus Buy rating. STA’s  view of the stock is Bearish with a score of 2 out of 10, where 0 is very bearish and 10 very bullish.
