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 is currently benefiting from growing number of confirmed registered users. Increasing adoption rate of MercadoPago continues to aid growth in total payment volume of the company. Further, improving shipments via MercadoEnvios are major positives. All these factors are driving MercadoLibre’s top-line growth. Additionally, the company’s strong mobile wallet initiatives are accelerating the adoption rate of its Mobile Wallet. Also, its strengthening momentum across the geographies is a tailwind. Notably, the stock has outperformed the industry it belongs to over a year. However, increasing expenses related to warehousing, infrastructure transition on public cloud, free shipping subsidies and discounts on mPOS devices are hurting the company’s margin expansion. Further, rising competition from e-commerce giants poses serious threat to its market position." (1/8/2019)
  • 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."
