Ceridian HCM Holding (NYSE:CDAY), a company that develops human capital management software, has seen its stock price rise by about 35% over the last month. The rally was likely driven partly by stronger than expected Q3 results, with adjusted EPS standing at $0.11, about $0.02 ahead of consensus. The beat was driven by strong uptake of the company’s Dayforce cloud-based product, which saw recurring revenues grow by almost 33% year-over-year to about $110 million. The company expects Dayforce revenue to accelerate over Q4 as well.
The company also marginally raised its full-year revenue guidance to between $822 million and $825 million (up about 1.3% from previous guidance at the mid-point)
