Workday shares rose 3 percent in the extended session. JMP Securities maintained its outperform rating and $175 price target before the company releases its third-quarter earnings Wednesday. Shares are up 36 percent year to date but are down 8 percent in the past three months. JMP Securities said it expects full-year guidance to be $1.12 a share and year-over-year revenue growth to be 29 percent.
