What are Wall Street analysts saying about Yelp stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Yelp stock:
  • 1. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We remain $38 target price. Key Points 1Q:19 highlights. Yelp’s total revenue grew +6% y/y (organic) to $235.9mm in 1Q, which was in line with the Street’s $235.4mm forecast (+6% y/y) and above the midpoint of the company’s guidance range ($232mm-$236.5mm). Adj. EBITDA of $39.3mm (~17% margin) was just ahead of the Street’s $38.4mm (~16% margin) estimate and the high-end of guidance ($37mm-$39mm). In 1Q, Yelp’s paying advertising accounts increased by +1k q/q (192k total accounts), matching the Street’s forecast as sequential adds rebounded from pronounced weak seasonality at the end of 4Q in the SMB segment. Paying advertising locations contracted q/ q by -12k to 529k total, below our/the Street’s expectation by 20k-30k." (5/10/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Yelp is benefiting from strong growth in ad revenues. The company’s shift toward selling advertising plans without any fixed duration is leading to a robust increase in paying advertiser accounts. The collaboration with GrubHub is a tailwind for Yelp as it provides users with access to a significant number of restaurants available for food ordering on the platform. Besides, the company is witnessing acceleration in consumer traffic across app unique devices. Significant improvement in cumulative reviews is also encouraging. Shares have outperformed the industry in the past year. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s Q1 earnings release. However, increase in operating expenses driven by an increase in headcount, product development and sales & marketing expenses will remain an overhang on the bottom line. Stringent competition from search giants like Google is a concern." (4/22/2019)
  • 3. SunTrust Banks, Inc. analysts commented, "We’re lowering our numbers to 10% revenue growth/250bps EBITDA margin expansion, per the company’s new guidance framework, and our price target to $35 (10x 2019 FCF, vs 24% EBITDA growth). ." (11/9/2018)
