What are Wall Street analysts saying about Yelp stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Yelp stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Yelp fourth quarter  results benefited from increasing Paying advertising locations. Moreover, the company’s focus on expanding its product portfolio with the launch of Verified License, Business Highlights and Yelp Portfolios is a key driver. The collaboration with GrubHub is also a tailwind 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 encouraging too. However, competition from search giants like Google and Bing is a concern. Lack of revenue diversification is also a key threat for Yelp." (2/19/2020)
  • 2. 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)
