What are Wall Street analysts saying about Mercadolibre stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Mercadolibre stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "MercadoLibre’s growing number of confirmed registered users continues to drive the top-line growth. Moreover, the company commands a dominant position in the Latin American e-commerce market with strong Mercado Puntos and MercadoPago. Further, the company remains optimistic on its continued investments in customer services and consumer acquisition, free shipping and branding.  These will continue to drive traffic and conversions on MercadoLibre’s platform.  However, rising competition from e-commerce giants remains a headwind for its market position. Further, mounting expenses, interest accrual on convertible bonds and increase in income tax poses serious threat to its profitability. Notably, the stock has underperformed the industry it belongs to over a year." (7/16/2018)
  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We appreciate where investment spend is focused as MercadoLibre is well positioned (given its leadership and the maturity of the platform) to extend share in the region as competition intensifies. Amazon will continue to invest in Latin America though we believe there is room for both in the region as eCommerce and digital payments are still early in their development. MercadoLibre is very well-managed with a strong strategic track record and yesterday’s report reinforces our positive view. We maintain our Buy rating and raise our Price Target to $425."
