Polen Global Growth Strategy stated the following regarding Workday, Inc. (NASDAQ:WDAY) in its first quarter 2024 investor letter:

"Finally, weakness in Workday, Inc. (NASDAQ:WDAY) during the quarter is likely more a function of the stock taking a breather than any adverse fundamental development.

From the end of October through the end of February, the stock was up 40%, buoyed by the company’s better-than-anticipated earnings in 3Q 2023, and management raised revenue guidance for their fiscal 2024. In 1Q 2024, the stock sold off on results and guidance that did not exceed the elevated expectations some investors anticipated. We believe Workday has ample room to continue taking share in a nicely growing $100 Billion+ global human capital management (“HCM”) market and remain confident in the company’s ability to generate 20%+ annualized free cash flow per share growth over the next three to five years."
