Dash Stock NYSE:DASH

Dash stock slightly drops to trade at $50.56 by 12:32 PM EDT.

Even if the U.S. economy has experienced some setbacks and competition is still fierce, DoorDash (NYSE:DASH) still views itself as a growth story.

According to Evercore ISI’s summary of the event, DoorDash CEO Tony Xu discussed the significant scope for growth in the grocery delivery business during a discussion at the recent Groceryshop conference in Las Vegas.

With 3M drivers providing the lowest cost per last mile, DoorDash (NYSE:DASH) seeks to use its scale advantage on the density front. According to Evercore analyst Michael Montani, “the key is adding even more density to fully use drivers when it comes to last-mile economics in order to make the profit equation work.”

Dash Stock Rises, Announces Partnership With Big Lots

Despite the fact that DoorDash’s (NYSE:DASH) grocery client base has more than doubled in the past year, order/demand density is reportedly still a barrier to more widespread geographic expansion because of the shortage of drivers in rural areas. Thus, collaborations with merchants like Albertson’s, Giant Eagle, and Raleys are essential.

Even while customers themselves are trying to stretch their food and beverage budgets even further, DoorDash (NYSE:DASH) is aiming to snag the additional grocery market share. Overall, DoorDash (NYSE:DASH), a San Francisco-based company that keeps diversifying, has more than 75,000 non-restaurant retail shops on its network across North America. DASH stock decreased 1.38% during Monday’s midday session. The stock price of the online meal delivery company is 20% or more below both its 50-day and 100-day moving averages.

On June 3, DA Davidson analyst Tom White kept the DoorDash, Inc. (NYSE:DASH) stock with a Neutral rating while lowering the price objective from $135 to $82, adding that the revised goal reflected “the broader multiple compression for technological growth firms.”

With 4.7 million shares valued at more than $301 million, Beijing-based investment company Hillhouse Capital Management is one of the largest shareholders in DoorDash, Inc. (NYSE:DASH) among the hedge funds Insider Monkey is monitoring.
