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 boasts of a robust portfolio of online dating services and enjoys a first mover’s advantage in the space. 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. Increasing adoption of Tinder Gold subscription package is enabling Match Group to bolster subscriber growth. Notably, shares of the company have outperformed the industry in the past year. However, higher investments in Tinder amid competition from Facebook Dating are likely to limit margin expansion. Notably, the company is noticing a decline in new users above the age of 30 owing to the coronavirus pandemic, which is a headwind. Nonetheless, growing usage of video dating among younger users bodes well." (4/15/2020)
  • 2. SunTrust Banks, Inc. analysts commented, "We expect Tinder to once again print one of its best quarterly net adds ever, with further headroom to grow. Non-Tinder subs seem to have stabilized with legacy brands — Match and OkCupid, turning the corner given a bigger mktg push, while newer brands namely Harmonica are showing early promise. ST catalysts include pending divestiture from IAC and a buyback reload. MTCH’s 3Q19. For the last two quarters, Tinder has been the driving force behind the earnings beat by adding 503k and 384k net subscribers in 2Q19 and 1Q19, respectively. We believe 3Q19 is setting up to be another quarter with strong net adds (+450K) to build on the 5.2M aggregate Tinder subscribers reported last quarter." (9/5/2019)
  • 3. Aegis analysts commented, "We had called for a MTCH spin from IAC in our predictions for the year (link) and IAC’s management essentially laid out the case, in our opinion, that MTCH, rather than ANGI, is likely to be the next spin (although we would not rule out a dual-spin). MTCH as a standalone company should see increased investor interest, particularly from investors with longer-term horizons, and MTCH could support the stock with increased share buybacks. We tweaked our 3Q19 and 4Q19 revenue estimates but left the full-year revenue unchanged. on page 2.2 AEGIS CAPITAL CORP. Our price target is $105 Valuation Methodology Our price target is based on a sum-of-the parts valuation on Ex-Match Adj." (9/4/2019)
