This stock has been cut in half since early November, and it appears to have stabilized enough to jump in. Grab Holdings Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRAB) operates a transportation and fintech platform in Southeast Asia. It offers a range of services, including mobility, food, package and grocery delivery services, as well as mobile payments and financial services.
Anthony Tan, Group CEO and co-founder, said this after the company’s successful conversion from SPAC status:
Our evolution into a superapp was guided by the everyday problems we wanted to solve for the people we care about, and accelerated by the growing appetite for digital services in a rapidly transforming landscape. From on-demand mobility and deliveries to digital financial services, enterprise services and more, we believe we are only scratching the surface of the opportunity ahead of us. While there’s no doubt this is an exciting moment, we’re grounded in the knowledge that this is just day one. Our calling remains the same – to unlock greater opportunity for all Southeast Asians to participate in the digital economy.
The $10.50 Jefferies price target is well above the $8.84 consensus target. Grab stock closed on Friday at $7.13 per share.
