Zoom Expected To Grow More By 2022
Overall, 60% of investors told us shares of Zoom will grow more by 2022.
Many respondents believe that although Zoom has pulled back from its status as top COVID-19 stock, its revenues will continue to grow into next year. Investors told us they believe it’s going to be at least another year before people return to work in offices and schools. Until then, Zoom will continue to be the video communications software company of choice to conduct meetings and schoolwork.
Respondents added that even as COVID-19 fears abate, people have grown used to the ease of meeting online and will continue to use Zoom as their go-to video communications service in the coming years.
