What are analysts saying about Shutterstock stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Shutterstock stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shutterstock, Inc. is a global marketplace for digital imagery. It provides licensed photographs, vectors, illustrations and videos to businesses, marketing agencies and media organizations around the world. The Company's online marketplace provides a freely searchable library of commercial digital images that the users can pay to license, download and incorporate into their work. Shutterstock, Inc. is headquartered in New York. " (10/4/2017)
  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "SSTK reported disappointing 4th quarter results with both a top and bottom line miss. Paid download growth continued to decelerate and grew 6% Y/ Y. Mgmt highlighted the transition from a marketplace to a platform which is being accomplished through a scalable tech stack enabling an end-end workflow platform." (2/28/2017)
  • 3. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We're maintaining a Neutral rating and adjusting our PT to $43 from $52, on the back of soft 4Q16 results and 2017 outlook relative to our/Street expectations. A slowdown in growth of paid downloads contributed to a top line and EPS miss. Management is hopeful that the major tech re-platforming, which took place in 2016, and plans to transform the business from a marketplace into an endto-end workflow platform, should help accelerate the volume and pace of product innovation, improvements to customer experience, and re-accelerate revenue growth. We opt to remain on the sidelines, however, till further evidence emerges showing the positive impact on the underlying metrics. Adobe and a maturing ecommerce segment pose intermediate and long-term risk potential, in our view. The shares are down about 16% this morning." (2/28/2017)
  • 4. Royal Bank Of Canada analysts commented, "Q4 Revenue of $130MM was below Street's $135MM, as was Adj. EBITDA of $25.9MM vs. Street at $29MM. Mgmt issued FY17 Revenue guidance of $545-560MM (+10-13% growth), 5% below Street at the mid-pt. EBITDA guide of $105-110MM (19-20% margin) was also below Street's prior $119MM, and we believe the outlook for flattish margins was a negative. Additionally, mgmt discussed a gradual transformation from a marketplace to an integrated platform, though few specifics were provided." (2/27/2017)
