Trendy new introductory public offers always bring the boat for various reasons. A hyped-up IPO like Beyond Meat (BYND) or Uber Technologies (UBER) is likely to show sudden jumps or dips in stock prices because it simply hasn't been long enough to develop long-term trends,
For investors, that means everything Together, these companies offer greater opportunity for faster returns. We will dip into TipRank's database to look at three such stocks, all of which were published in the last couple of months: Beyond Meat, Lift (ULT) and Uber. We want to see where they are now and what factors are behind their volatile stock prices.
Several companies in recent months have marketed a new generation of meat-free burger products that offer a better simulacrum of a burger, but more importantly, better taste. Beyond Meat is one of these. The company was announced on May 2, listed on Nasdaq for $ 25, more than doubled in its first trading day, and has shown stable gains since then reaching $ 1
So the bottom fell because JPMorgan analyst Ken Goldman noted that the stock was trading far above its target. He downgraded his rating to hold. He simply felt that BYND was overpriced and the time had come to stop buying.
"[We felt] stock exchange valuation would at all times reflect the extraordinary earnings and profit potential. We believe in this day as arrived." Goldman gave BYND a price of $ 121, indicating a possible 20% decline to go along with his team rating.
Contributions to the roller coaster were news from competitors Impossible Foods and Tyson Foods (TSN – Get Report). Impossible foods reported difficulty in meeting demand, while Tyson announced a direct competitive hybrid product. Robert Moskow, from Credit Suisse, believes that BYND can meet this challenge and describes its products as "more revolutionary and broader" than Tyson's. However, he takes a wait state, with a team rating and a $ 125 prizes target.
Overall, BYND achieves a unanimous analyst consensus with eight team ratings. The average price target is $ 108, 33% below the $ 164 share price. However, this share price represents a good over 500% gain since the IPO, which means early investors can make a huge profit.
The popular riding stock company and competitor for uber has not had as good a time as bidding on the markets. LYFT shares have fallen 23% since IPO, despite generally good ratings from Wall Street's analyst corps.
In a detailed research note, Youssef Squali of SunTrust, "The Progressive Set of Consumer Preferences Along with the Ubiquity of Mobile Devices, Makes a Sustainable Growth Path for Lifts in the Future and adds that the company must be profitable and make a convincingly pure game in The North America TaaS segment. "He gave the shares a purchase classification with a price level of $ 68 indicating a 9% upward trend.
Mark Mahaney, from RBC Capital, is more bullish than Squali. At the start of his cover of LYFT shares on purchase, he gave a price target of $ 72 and 15% upwards. Supporting his dissertation, he said: "Lyft is a strong # 2 player in the growing US shipping industry with industry leading growth rates. And we believe Lyft has a fair path to profitability in the years to come."  In the short term, LYFT sells at $ 60, making it an affordable solution. With recent analyst evaluations suggesting price targets back to the original IPO values, it is likely that the collective market's wisdom sees the stock as falling in May-May fall too far. However, one warning is: The trading volume for LYFT has been low since May 17, only a few million shares a day. Low volume tends to increase market volatility.
At least, LIFT receives at least a moderate purchase rate from analyst consensus based on 19 buyers, eight teams and three sellers given over the past three months. Shares are trading at $ 60 for this writing, so the average price target of $ 70 gives an upside potential of 15%.
With four times Loft's market coverage, Uber is the leader in online ride sharing. But the Uber shares fell more than 10% in their first trading day, made it up during the day four and have been up and down since. However, patient investors should do well, since Uber is 4% higher than the IPO, and just as Lyft has received positive assessments from the analysts.
Writing from JMP Securities noted Ronald Josey's recent managing restructuring. "In the streamlined organizational structure, CEO Dara Khosrowshahi will take a more active operational role and we believe the new structure should be generally positive." Josey put a price target of $ 54 for an upside of 24% on Uber stock.
RBC's Mahaney was even more optimistic about Uber. His price target, $ 62, suggests an impressive 42% upward. He wrote about the warehouse, "Uber is the leading global player in solid ride-sharing & meal delivery TAMs, which generates robust growth with leading technologies, products and ops. We also see significant option value in new business units (eg freight). on the market underestimating uber's potential for profit. "
Overall, Uber has a strong buy analysis match with 21 buy and 5 team ratings. The stock has a share price of $ 43 and an average price target of $ 54, indicating an upside potential of 25%.
The biggest difference between these three companies lies in market share and profitability. Beyond Meat already dominates its market and wins profits, but the industry is very competitive and it will be hard pressed to maintain its position. Uber and Lyft are struggling for market share, and both are now losing out, but their industry is giving higher potential profits. The result for these new arrivals in the stock market is unpredictable stock prices.
