Guardian Fund, an investment management firm based in the Netherlands, released its Q2 investor letter on Monday and the group was very high on Palantir as an investment moving forward. Guardian Fund points out that Palantir’s positioning as a platform that services both the private and public sectors will serve it well in the long-run.

PLTR stock forecast

At the close of trading on Monday, Palantir finds itself slightly below the median analyst price target for the stock this year. Does this mean Palantir may continue to trade at these levels? Not exactly. Analyst price targets should just be taken as one person or firm’s opinion on the stock, and is mostly based on previous performance of both the individual stock and sector. Price targets range from as low as $17 to as high as $30, so where Palantir’s stock goes from here is anyone’s guess.
