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 reported second quarter results wherein its e-commerce business showed sluggishness in Brazil due to rise in the shipping costs. The company suffered from the price hike by its major postal partner and trucker’s strike during the quarter. Also, the company continues to hurt by mounting expenses. Further, growing investments in customer services and consumer acquisition, free shipping and branding remains a major concern. Although these investments will continue to drive traffic and conversions on MercadoLibre’s platform, but they pose a huge risk to margin expansion. Nevertheless, the company’s strong position across the geographies will continue to drive its top-line growth. Moreover, growing adoption of MercadoPago remains positive. However, rising competition from e-commerce giants remains a headwind for its market position. Notably, the stock has underperformed the industry it belongs to on a year-to-date basis." (8/14/2018)
  • 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."
