Pinterest gets bullish upgrade on 'astounding' user growth
Aug. 3, 2020 7:18 AM
In the wake of Pinterest's (NYSE:PINS) strong Q2 results, Pivotal Research upgrades the social stock from Hold to Buy.
Analyst Michael Levine calls the print "the inflection point we had been waiting to see," praising the "astounding" growth rate in the quarter and implied in the outlook.
PINS shares spiked 36% on Friday, but Levine doesn't think the "stock move is done based on relative market capitalization/the opportunity."
Pivotal raises Pinterest's price target from $22 to $45.50, a 30% upside from the last close.
PINS shares are up 3.6% pre-market to $35.52.
