Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 143

Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:UBER) is a San Francisco-based mobility service company that operates in over 900 cities worldwide.

UBS analyst Lloyd Walmsley initiated coverage of Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:UBER) on December 2, rating the stock as “Buy” with a price target of $80.00.

Overall, hedge funds are loading up on Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:UBER), as 143 out of the 867 funds tracked by Insider Monkey held stakes in the company in Q3, compared to 135 funds a quarter earlier.

RiverPark Funds mentioned Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:UBER) in its second-quarter 2021 investor letter. Here is what the fund said:

“UBER was our top detractor for the quarter. Delivery growth remains strong, and ride sharing has started to recover, though still down year over year (vs. pre-COVID results). Gross bookings grew 24% year over year, driven by 166% Delivery growth.

Despite the COVID disruption, UBER remains the undisputed global leader in ride sharing, with greater than 50% share in every major region in which it operates. The company is also a leader in food delivery (64% of 1Q21 revenue), where it is number one or two in the more than 25 countries in which it operates. We view UBER as more than just ride sharing and food delivery, but also as a global mobility platform with the ability to sell to its more than 100 million users (by comparison, Amazon Prime has 130+ million members) and penetrate new markets of ondemand services, such as grocery delivery, truck brokerage and worker staffing for shift work. Its New Verticals (non-food delivery such as grocery, convenience, and alcohol) business hit a $3 billion annualized run rate in March, up 77% quarter over quarter.

UBER, at its current $91 billion market capitalization, trades at 4x next year’s revenue from its two core businesses. Additionally, the company has substantial, unrecognized, value in its several nascent development businesses and another $13 billion in equity stakes in synergistic businesses around the world.”
