  • Axiom Securities analysts commented, "Apptopia’s numbers, if accurate, confirm our view that Tinder should continue to grow at a rapid pace and that the monetization opportunity and trajectory on both subscriptions and advertising remains strong. The numbers, in part, also support management’s view that paid subscribers could double in 2016. The combination of Tinder driving subscriptions domestically with new features, add-on advertising, and international growth could turn Tinder into the Internet’s next $1B revenue brand. Further, the fact that downloads continue to grow combined with solid growth at POF and OkCupid give us confidence that the Core can return to growth. We maintain our Buy rating on the shares of Match Group and our $18 price target for year-end 2016." (4/19/2016)
