Match Group upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital
On March 9, 2022, BMO Capital analyst Daniel Salmon upgraded Match Group to Outperform from Market Perform with an unchanged price target of $130. The analyst says online dating is “poised to outperform” the internet sector. For Match, catalysts should include international expansion milestones for Hinge and new product innovation, Salmon tells investors in a research note. While the Tinder story is a more “complex/dynamic one” than before, it is also de-risked and remains the “undisputed category leader,” adds the analyst. Salmon also thinks the value proposition of Match’s innovations like TinderCoin will become clearer and support a multiple re-expansion.
