CrowdStrike Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:CRWD) is up 17.5% to trade at $49.06 this morning after reporting a fourth-quarter loss of two cents, higher than Wall Street's estimated eight cent loss. CrowdStrike's reported $152.11 million in revenue also came higher than expected, causing no less than three analysts to raise their price targets, including RBC which hiked its estimate to $73 from $67. 

Analyst sentiment surrounding CRWD is already optimistic with 14 out of 18 in coverage sporting a "buy" or better rating. Meanwhile, the 12-month consensus price target of $74.43 sits at a 52.8% premium to current levels.

Today's pop has CrowdStrike testing its footing back at the 20-day moving average for the first time since mid-February. Plus, the equity is on track for its fourth consecutive win since its all-time closing low of $32.12 and is up 23.9% this week. 

The options pits have been eyeing puts of late, with 1.36 long puts bought for every long call at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX). Meanwhile, short interest is up 6.8% in the last reporting period, with 4.22 million shares making up a whopping 20.4% of the stock's available float. Should this pessimism begin to unwind, it could add even more wind at the equity's back.
