  • Right now, Spotify is winning the world with 182M subscribers, across 183 markets.
  • Wells Fargo Analyst Steve Cahall suddenly increased price targets to 124$ while earlier, it was 101$.

Spotify is the world’s biggest audio streaming platform now. Operating on a Freemium model, the company has reached 422 million users as of 2022.

Recently, Spotify organized an investor’s day where the stock’s prospects were positive enough for Wells Fargo analyst Steve Cahall to give it the benefit of doubt.

Statement By Steve Cahall

He mentioned Spotify’s unprecedented growth a few times during his statement. He also claimed that this company has crossed all the expectations that they modeled in the initial business model.

Cahall stated that considering the magnitude of subscriber and profit generation, they’re ready to allow management time of Spotify to implement certain margin expansion opportunities.

Spotify Stocks Raising The Bar

In the investing world, research analysts often use the terms such as equal weight, and underweight, to estimate the power of a stock or a digital asset.

Equal weight means the asset is predicted to accomplish in accordance with the index, whereas underweight means the security is likely to lag behind the index.

Cahall, after the last conference, changed the status of Spotify’s stock from underweight to equal weight. This suddenly lead to the increased price targets to 124$ while earlier, it was 101$.

According to sources, during the midday trade, the Spotify stock surged more than 7%.

The Future Growth of Margins

Cahall also claimed that the company now needs to work very hard to keep up this growth. This is in reference to the fact that it is easy to achieve a stage, but difficult to maintain it. He said that if indeed the margin story starts to peek through, they may become more positive. If, on the other hand, margin progress appears to be being pushed out, then they may need to reconsider their long-term strategy.

“Margins are the real debate since SPOT and peers live under the thumb of a music cartel, and we’ve figured music to be the vast majority of engagement”, Cahall wrote.

It’s uncertain how recruiting will impact Spotify’s path of growth: According to a recent Bloomberg report, the tech giant will reduce recruitment by about 25% in amongst the difficult economic and financial climate that has caused a wave of staff cuts and layoffs that have affected tech firms like Coinbase (COIN), Netflix (NFLX), Intel (INTC), Tesla (TSLA), Snap (SNAP), and others.
