What are analysts saying about LendingClub Corp stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about LendingClub Corp stock:

  • 1. Wedbush analysts commented, "While we will be surprised if LC produces the sort of revenue and origination growth assumed by more bullish proponents of the stock, management has made a very good case in their recent meetings with us and other investors that they have a plan for enhancing the breadth of the marketplace and growing volumes. Reflecting this, we are stepping forward with a 2019 estimate and refocusing our price target methodology on simply 2019E adjusted EBITDA. Based on this, we are increasing our price target from $4.50 to $5.00 and upgrading our rating from UNDERPERFORM to NEUTRAL." (3/22/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "LendingClub Corporation provides internet financial services. The Company offers online marketplace for loan approval, pricing, servicing and support operations as well as regulatory and legal framework which connects borrowers and investors. LendingClub Corporation is headquartered in San Francisco, California. " (1/11/2017)
  • 3. FBR & Co analysts commented, "We reiterate our Market Perform rating and $4 price target on LC following 2Q16 results. Several unusual items (severance, increased incentives, strategic review costs, etc.) negatively impacted both 2Q16 results and the outlook, although origination volume was slightly better than expected. LC reduced its contribution margin target to something in the mid-40%s from 50% given higher customer acquisition cost. LC did not provide an update on its long-term EBITDA guidance, but it is difficult to see how LC can get to the same level with a lower contribution margin. Given the drop in originations, LC reduced some staff, but adjusted EBITDA is and will remain negative (despite the add back of significant stock comp expense) and we would like to see more focus on profitability, especially as originations are falling. LC also announced the company’s CFO has resigned." (8/9/2016)
  • 4. Macquarie analysts commented, "For a 'pure-play' marketplace like LC, investor trust is particularly paramount," Macquarie analyst Tom White stated. But, the San Francisco, California-based online lender has lost investor confidence after the shock resignation of its co-founder, chairman and CEO Renaud Laplanche due to improper loan sales and personal investment disclosures."We can't be entirely certain that these are the only isolated issues at LC, but the Board's rapid/decisive action, coupled with LC's deep executive bench, the scale of its marketplace, and it's still generally solid loan performance, gives LC a good shot at eventually restoring the trust/participation of its platform investors," White wrote.Related Link: Post LendingClub, Other Online Leaders Under NY Regulatory Radar"Forcing out such a popular, high-profile, and evangelical leader like Laplanche shows that LC takes the issue of marketplace integrity/trust very seriously," White continued.Typically, the company doesn't hold loans on its balance sheet. The company generates about 82 percent of its revenues from transaction fees, matching borrowers or matching investors.Meanwhile, following the controversial departure of Laplanche, some institutional investors have paused their LC loan buying programs, White noted.LendingClub's Performance"LendingClub has cut marketing spend to slow top-of-the-funnel traffic to its site," White stated. At the same time, it tries to win back investors to its platform with lower servicing fees that in turn will aggravate its near-term revenue hurdles."LC will re-ramp marketing/originations once investors return, but it remains unclear how long platform investors may pause. All of this points to a likely messy/disappointing 2Q, and uncertain balance of 2016," White said.On the regulatory probe, the analyst said near-term regulatory noise is likely, and he expects more industry oversight in general in the coming years.Related Link: Is LendingClub Ruining Fintech's Future?"That said, the fact that LC's core installment loans for 660–720+ FICO borrowers typically provide cost savings (average APR at 14 percent) relative to alternatives like credit cards (and may help improve credit scores) should make LC less of a target," White noted.The analyst highlighted that LendingClub revenues are" disproportionately tied to originations, but related contribution expenses account for about 60 percent of LC's cost base and are about 75 percent variable." Looking Forward"LC may look to ramp retail investor marketing if institutional capital stays on the sidelines, but LC has been able to maintain high-40 percent contribution margins at significantly lower originations levels historically. Tech, G&A spend is also more discretionary, offering some EBITDA margin flexibility in a downturn," White said.White expects revenue and EBITDA growth in 2016 of 48 percent to $629 million and 35 percent to $94 million."Given the lack of current visibility around investor participation in LC's marketplace, visibility around potential origination and revenue growth outcomes for LC in the near-term is very limited," (5/26/2016)
