HubSpot (HUBS) Stock Jumps 3.8%: Will It Continue to Soar?

HubSpot (HUBS) shares soared 3.8% in the last trading session to close at $578.43. The move was backed by solid volume with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This compares to the stock's 6.3% loss over the past four weeks.

The uptrend is primarily attributable to solid HubSpot AI traction. HubSpot has integrated HubSpot AI across its entire product suites and customer platform, enabling users to leverage AI features at no additional cost. Pricing optimization and the transition to a seat pricing model are expected to drive customer growth.

The seat pricing model lowers the barrier for customers to get started with HubSpot and mitigates pricing friction for upgrades. The model intends to encourage more clients to adopt HubSpot services and expand their usage over time. It is anticipated to lead to healthier customer cohorts and is expected to contribute positively to the company's growth over time.

This cloud-based marketing and sales software platform is expected to post quarterly earnings of $1.63 per share in its upcoming report, which represents a year-over-year change of +21.6%. Revenues are expected to be $618.14 million, up 16.8% from the year-ago quarter.
