Trade Desk Inc (TTD) Received its Third Buy in a Row

By Austin Angelo

After Susquehanna and SunTrust Robinson gave Trade Desk Inc (NASDAQ: TTD) a Buy rating last month, the company received another Buy, this time from Oppenheimer. Analyst Brian Schwartz maintained a Buy rating on Trade Desk Inc today and set a price target of $210. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $186.94, close to its 52-week high of $214.70.

Schwartz observed:

“TTD shares have declined 12% since Friday’s open mostly from reports that Google could restrict third-party ad targeting on Chrome. The market reaction looks overblown for these reasons: 1) The key growth drivers (ConnectedTV, Mobile, China) are strengthening and do not rely on cookies. This allows us to carry an upward bias to consensus estimates; 2) TTD’s Safari desktop revenue continued to grow through similar changes from that browser in the past; and 3) We understand the shoot first and ask questions later approach, but question the viability owing to anti-trust, publisher and advertiser pushback. Bottom Line: We remain long-term bullish on the name, but also believe that higher estimates rather than further multiples expansion will catalyze a higher share price. Reiterate Outperform.”

According to, Schwartz is a top 25 analyst with an average return of 28.1% and a 76.8% success rate. Schwartz covers the Technology sector, focusing on stocks such as Instructure Inc,, and MiX Telematics.
