What are Wall Street analysts saying about CarGurus stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about CarGurus stock:
- 1. Benchmark Co. analysts commented, "We think CARG’s bull case is fairly straightforward. At all-in average monthly pricing ranging from 50-200% vs. competitors and the largest consumer audience measured by unique visitors, the Firm should be able to continue spinning the flywheel of increasing dealer penetration both from a count and wallet share perspective assuming lead volume continues to grow. Our dealer survey of 54 groups — including 3 of the top 15, 5 top 25, and a wide array of franchise and independent outfits—supports this thesis as ~80% expect to spend more on the platform over the next 12 months. Additionally, given that CarGurus is mathematically focused rather than relationship dependent, as ROI tools improve over time, the majority of the $3 billion that shifted to Google and Facebook over the last 5 years, along with the potential for another $3-4 billion to shift to digital channels over the next 5 years, could move to the leader in pure lead volume."
