Wall Street’s Take
Recently, an analyst with Bernstein initiated coverage on the stock with a Buy rating and a $90 price target (43.6% upside potential).
The analyst expects the company to grow “despite headwinds” as it has the “best-in-class” management team.
In a research note to investors, Devnani said, “The company is proving more durable than e-commerce, it doesn’t have the same driver supply issues as rideshare, there’s very little exposure to Europe, and the underlying unit economics of the business remain compelling.”
Overall, the stock has a Moderate Buy consensus rating based on 11 Buys and six Holds. DASH’s average price target of $125.71 implies 100.6% upside potential from current levels. Shares have lost 54% over the past year.
TipRanks’ Website Traffic Tool, which uses data from SEMrush Holdings, the world’s biggest website usage monitoring service, offers insight into DoorDash’s performance.
According to the tool, DoorDash’s website traffic registered a 4.2% rise in global visits in April, compared to March. Further, the footfall on the company’s website has grown 102.9% year-to-date against the same period last year.
The stock sale by several of the company’s executives could imply that they expect DASH stock to decline due to the falling demand for DoorDash’s services amid rising inflation. It could also mean that the company is planning to increase its subscription fee, which could hurt its stock price.
