Latest UBER Analyst Ratings

Bernie McTernan, a bottom 1% analyst from Needham maintains UBER with a buy rating and raises their UBER price target from $52.00 to $54.00, on Nov 2, 2022.

McTernan raised his price target on Uber Technologies, Inc. by 3.8% following the release of the company's Q3 2022 earnings report on 2022/11/01.

The reason Uber is our top pick right now in the Internet/Consumer Tech space is the company's focus on profitable growth, the analyst said.

Q3's print was a great example of that, McTernan continued, noting that "in spite of the miss on bookings, Uber beat on EBITDA."

On the strength of these results, "we think there is a long way to go for Uber and that it is increasingly likely the company will hit its FY 2024 targets of $5B of EBITDA," the analyst added, looking ahead. "You put 20x to 25x on that [EBITDA target of $5B], the stock should be in the $50s."

Operationally, McTernan noted that management was upbeat on driver availability and on the basis of his firm's data (increasing demand and declining prices), the analyst said he agreed.

"Recessionary fears could actually help the company's driver-supply issue," the analyst detailed.

For Q3 2022, Uber reported:

  • Loss per share of $0.61, which missed the Refinitiv Consensus Estimate of $(0.22) but beat Q3 2021's loss of $1.28 by 52.3%.
  • Revenue of $8.34B, which beat the Refinitiv Consensus Estimate of $8.12B and, by 72%, Q3 2021's $4.85B.
  • "Record" adjusted EBITDA of $516M which beat both the StreetAccount Consensus Estimate ($457.7M) and management's prior guidance ($440M to $470M).
  • Free cash flow of $358M.
  • $29.1B in gross bookings, up 26% Y/Y.

For Q4 2022, management guided:

  • Gross bookings to grow 23% to 27% Y/Y on a constant currency basis.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $600M to $630M, ahead of the Refinitiv Consensus Estimate for adjusted EBITDA of $568M.

CEO Dara Khosrowshahi commented: "Even as the macroeconomic environment remains uncertain, Uber’s core business is stronger than ever."

CFO Nelson Chai added: "Strong demand for our offerings, better marketplace efficiency, and our asset-light platform helped to deliver Adjusted EBITDA well above our guidance, even as foreign exchange and inflationary headwinds impact all global businesses.

“We remain focused on excellent execution and disciplined cost management to deliver on our growth and profitability commitments for the coming years.”
