Okta Inc (NASDAQ:OKTA) is down 9.3% at $68.55 at last glance, extending Friday's 11.6% slide after the company disclosed a cyber breach of its customer support system. Analysts were quick to comment on the news, with Evercore ISI moving the stock to its "tactical underperform" list, noting that the breach is the second in roughly two years. No fewer than three other analysts slashed their price targets as well. 

Today's gap lower has OKTA breaking below its 320-day moving average, which kept last session's losses in check. On the short sell restricted (SSR) list amid the volatility, the shares are hovering around their 2023 breakeven level.
