Uber’s stock is trading well below the price it debuted at earlier this year but Barclays made the case for how the ridesharing company will soon turn its stock around, in a note to investors on Friday titled “How Uber can double.”
Shares of Uber have dropped more than 38% from its IPO price in May, finishing trading on Thursday at $25.99 a share.
“We think that Uber is one major announcement away from a positive narrative change heading into 2020, and we think getting involved ahead of rationalization of the Eats losses makes sense,” analyst Ross Sandler said.
Barclays has an overweight rating on shares of Uber with a $40 price target.
