Oppenheimer Keeps a Buy Rating on Redfin Corp

Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein maintained a Buy rating on Redfin Corp (NASDAQ: RDFN) yesterday and set a price target of $24. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $22.98.

Helfstein said:

“We are maintaining our Outperform rating and $24 PT after Redfin reported modestly better than expected 1Q:18 revenue, and gave 2Q:18 guidance/commentary that implies the housing inventory shortage is unlikely to abate in the near term. Management’s 2Q:18 guidance for Redfin Now ($5.7M vs. $3.1M in 1Q:18) and commentary suggest that while still an experiment odds are weighted towards the company pursuing the opportunity in earnest. Some investors might encourage mgmt. to move faster in iBuyer space, but we believe caution regarding sustainability of model in downturn is prudent. While the macro environment is clearly challenging and unlikely to turn in the short/medium term Redfin’s continued share gains (+15bps y/y in 1Q:18) give us confidence in the secular growth story.”
