No fewer than nine analysts lifted their price targets after the event. NEWR is trading at its highest level in a year, up 39.9% since the start of 2023. 

Meanwhile, Lumen Technologies Inc (NYSE:LUMN) is taking a post-earnings tumble, down 24.4% at $3.78 after falling to a record low. The company's fourth-quarter earnings and revenue beat expectations, but its operating income and full-year cash flow targets missed the mark. Two analysts slashed their price targets, pressuring LUMN below previous support at the $5 level.
