In addition to increasing investor interest, TechTarget has also seen some insider activity with Director Robert D Burke selling 1,200 shares for $47,484 prior to President Rebecca Kitchens’ sale of 750 shares valued at approximately $29,625 this February.
However, despite these positive indicators from investors and insiders alike, several equities research analysts have maintained a “hold” rating on TechTarget’s stock or cut their price targets following sluggish performance this year – prospects which some may see as underselling the company’s potential success within the growing need for data-driven solutions in B2B marketing and sales.
