Northland Securities reaffirmed their buy rating on shares of Tyler Technologies (NYSE:TYL) in a research report sent to investors on Friday morning. The brokerage currently has a $240.00 price objective on the technology company’s stock.

“We hosted investor meetings with management and we came away incrementally more confident on the company’s road map and ongoing execution. Management comfortably detailed the bookings growth rate last quarter (law of large numbers/gradual shift to subscription services/lumpy business). We note that of 12 large deals awarded but not signed last quarter, 6 have now completed the signature process, and we think the company is setting up to for a bit of a surge 1H19. The company used a lower tax rate in 2017/18 to increase its R&D spend and improve its product line in several areas. Similar to other periods, notably 2009 and 2010, when it invested and its competitors did not, TYL plans on seeing the benefits in stronger sales in a couple of years given the lag between investment and new sales in this market.”,” Northland Securities’ analyst commented.
