Millennial Media Downgraded to “Equal Weight” at Evercore Partners (MM)
Millennial Media (NYSE:MM) was downgraded by equities research analysts at Evercore Partners from an “overweight” rating to an “equal weight” rating in a research note issued to investors on Wednesday, TheFlyOnTheWall.com reports. They currently have a $5.00 target price on the stock. Evercore Partners’ price objective would suggest a potential upside of 9.89% from the company’s current price.
The analysts wrote, “We initiated coverage of Millennial Media with the thesis that the company’s entrance into programmatic ad exchanges last year would drive incremental advertiser demand while also increasing liquidity and the ease of transaction among its existing client base. “Despite the fact that the programmatic side is performing well, given a meaningful drop in visibility into the app install side of the business last quarter, along with our belief that competition is only likely to intensify, we see the potential for further market share loss. With MM up 40% since hitting all-time lows after reporting a disappointing 1Q, we now see a limited call to action in shares in the face of the headwinds we highlight in this note.”
