David Trainer Discusses Why Splunk Belongs in the Danger Zone

CEO David Trainer sat down with Chuck Jaffe of Money Life and MarketWatch.com to talk about our Danger Zone pick this past week: Splunk (SPLK).

In early 2012, Splunk Inc burst onto the scene with one of the biggest IPOs of the year. As the first in a new line of “big data” companies to go public, Splunk was seen as a trailblazer in an exciting industry. Since then, the stock price has ridden the hype and is up more than 320%. A combination of profitless growth, an unattractive pricing model, and overvaluation places Splunk in the Danger Zone this week.
