Well there seems to be real excitement over Nutanix’s software shift from the Street. This newfound belief from the Street has driven the stock into a big rally the last few months from $15 with shares nearly at $40. Folks, Nutanix stock has not hit these levels since just after its IPO a year ago.

Earnings were 10 cents above analyst consensus of -$0.26, mostly because sales were higher and margins were better than expected.
