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 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 bode well for the company. Introduction of Tinder Gold subscription package 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. Notably, estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s Q1 earnings release." (4/10/2019)
  • 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)
