Chegg's Organic Growth Remains Challenged, Says Morgan Stanley Analyst

  • Morgan Stanley analyst Josh Baer reiterated an Equal-Weight rating on the shares of Chegg Inc (NYSE: CHGG) and raised the price target from $22 to $24.

  • Josh Baer highlighted that Chegg is building back investor confidence after a second straight beat and raise quarter on both the top and bottom line.

  • However, he noted that organic growth remains challenged as Chegg Services revenue decelerated to only 2% Y/Y organic growth in Q3 from more than 3% last quarter.

  • He pointed out that management highlighted levers to support an improving growth profile going forward, including trends in U.S. undergraduate enrollment that appear to have stabilized and returned to pre-pandemic levels.

  • ARPU – from modest price increase in base product showing no adverse impact to conversion or retention rates and even driving more adoption of the higher-priced Study Pack bundle.

  • Also, progress in international, calling out increased engagement in Turkey after launching a fully localized app, the analyst added.

  • He said that a Spanish language app in beta could help support future growth internationally.

  • Price Action: CHGG shares are trading higher by 25.15% at $26.42 on the last check Wednesday.
