Carvana Co (CVNA) Received its Third Buy in a Row

After Robert W. Baird and Barrington gave Carvana Co (NYSE: CVNA) a Buy rating last month, the company received another Buy, this time from Wells Fargo. Analyst Zachary Fadem maintained a Buy rating on Carvana Co today and set a price target of $72. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $38.58.

Fadem noted:

“We hosted at our WF Valley, UT. Shares have been volatile since last week’s analyst day (-19% vs -2% SPX), which we believe owes in part to a lack of NT catalysts coming out of the event, investor concerns around Q4 volumes and the 12/4 announcement that KMX is expanding its Omnichannel pilot in Atlanta. In recent months, shares have become a battle ground, with bulls pointing to CVNA’s large and highly fragmented addressable market ($740B), triple-digit unit growth (116%+ in FY18), strong GPU progress and considerable LT runway; bears (with ~41% short interest) have been more focused on the potential for NT trend deceleration, macro/technical factors, and questions around financing and the need for additional capital.”

According to, Fadem is a 4-star analyst with an average return of 6.2% and a 56.5% success rate. Fadem covers the Services sector, focusing on stocks such as National Vision Holdings Inc, Floor & Decor Holdings Inc, and Advance Auto Parts.
