The brokerage bunch is pessimistic towards Palantir Technologies stock, with three of the four in question carrying a tepid "hold" or worse rating, while only one said "strong buy." Plus, the 12-month consensus target price of $22.43 is an 8.7% discount to the stock's current perch. This leaves ample room for price-target hikes and/or upgrades going forward, which could push shares higher. 

Lastly, the equity looks ripe for a short squeeze. Short interest is up 53.5% in the last two reporting periods, and the 85.27 million shares sold short make up 6.1% of PLTR's available float.
