Fiverr International Ltd. (NYSE: FVRR) stock fell 2.28% (As on Jan 13, 11:03:35 AM UTC-4, Source: Google Finance) after Piper Sandler started coverage with an Overweight rating and a $120 price target. The consensus target is much higher at $194.88. The analyst comments “Fiverr is a pure-play freelancing platform with no traditional staffing component. The company is able to command a strong take rate given its e-commerce like approach to the freelance market, along with providing several seller offerings to drive the take rate even higher. Fiverr has been able to drive strong growth (50%+ over the last two years) without a salesforce due to its efficient sales and marketing strategy. Finally, Fiverr Business and the recent Stoke acquisition should help the company move from primarily SMB focused to more enterprise exposure.”
