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 shares have underperformed the industry it belongs to on a year-to-date basis. We note that the company’s consumer-centric approach is the key catalyst. However, increasing investments on consumer acquisition, free shipping and branding is a major concern. Although these investments are likely to drive traffic and conversions on its platform, it is negatively impacting margin expansion. Nevertheless, we note that MercadoLibre commands a dominant position in the Latin American e-commerce market. The company is also benefiting from increasing usage of mobile devices on its platform. Moreover, higher penetration of MercadoPago and MercadoEnvios is driving top-line growth. However, revenue growth has not been enough to outpace rising marketing expenses, which continues to hurt profitability." (3/27/2018)
- 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." (2/23/2018)
