What are Wall Street analysts saying about Match Group stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Match Group stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Match Group is the world’s foremost provider of dating products and operates a portfolio of more than 45 brands. The company enjoys a first mover’s advantage in the online dating market. The company's increase in its average subscriber base, driven primarily by solid contribution from Tinder is a key catalyst. Sturdy synergies from Meetic, Match and PlentyOfFish bodes well for the company. Match Group had rolled out a Tinder Gold subscription package, which has driven incremental ARPU as well as subscriber growth. Notably, shares of the company have outperformed the industry in the past year. However, weaker-than-expected advertising revenue growth trends might dent the company’s financial performance. Further, higher investments in Tinder along with higher-than-expected data costs and professional fees might limit margin expansion. Moreover, estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s Q4 earnings release." (1/18/2019) 2. SunTrust Banks, Inc. analysts commented, "We find MTCH’s valuation relatively fair given prospects for slowing growth in a strong FY18, fueled by the launch of Tinder Gold. We expect Tinder’s growth to remain the story in 2019 but the step-change created by Tinder Gold will be difficult to replicate. Optimizing/innovating on product, and enhancing marketing especially internationally should help drive continued growth but the comps and prospects for material out-performance get tougher. MTCH has also out-performed relative to STRH the TTM at 39% vs. 2% and -5% now trading at 6.4x EV/Revs on 19 ests. Global Market." (12/18/2018) Has Match Group been receiving favorable news coverage?
