What are Wall Street analysts saying about Match Group stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Match Group stock:
  • 1. 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Match Group reported stellar third-quarter results. 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.  Robust momentum at Tinder and 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, profits might be affected due to higher investments in Tinder along with higher-than-expected data costs and professional fees." (11/14/2018)
