Read MoreHide Full Article

Shares of cloud computing company PagerDuty (PD - Free Report) crashed on Thursday. PD was down almost 28% in midday trading, though it managed to climb back a bit and close down 25.8%.

The company reported Q2 earnings yesterday after the bell. Revenue of $50.7 million fell short of expectations but adjusted earnings of a loss of $0.04 per share beat estimates. Investors were most disappointed by PagerDuty’s guidance. The SaaS stock anticipates a slowdown in revenue in Q3; its top-line will now only increase 22% to 24% to $53 million, below estimates of $53.7 million

PD jumped after Zoom Video’s (ZM - Free Report) blowout earnings report this week, so today’s steep sell-off is likely related to that earlier rise.

A select few stocks could skyrocket the most as rollout accelerates for this new tech. Early investors could see gains similar to buying Microsoft in the 1990s. Zacks’ just-released special report reveals 8 stocks to watch. The report is only available for a limited time.
