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 cautious on the intermediate-term outlook due to competitive dynamics in local advertising and execution risk, but note Yelp’s improving revenue retention / reacceleration of advertiser count are encouraging data points. Additionally, the company announced CFO Lanny Baker would be stepping down in September. We remain Target Price." (8/9/2019)
  • 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. However, increase in operating expenses driven by an expected increase in headcount, product development and sales & marketing expenses will remain an overhang on the bottom line. Stringent competition from search giants like Google and Bing is a big threat." (7/14/2019)
