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 reported stellar fourth-quarter results. However, the company provided a tepid forthcoming guidance. Unfavorable foreign exchange is expected to hurt top-line growth. Further, 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, stiff competition from peers and a highly leverage balance sheet remains a concern. Nonetheless, the company's increase in its average subscriber base, driven primarily by solid contribution from Tinder is a key catalyst." (2/13/2019) 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?
