Citi Research initiated coverage of names in the InterActiveCorp. family on Tuesday, calling Match Group Inc. and IAC shares both buys while slapping a neutral rating on ANGI Homeservices Inc.'s stock . Analyst Nicholas Jones wrote that IAC "trades at a 'stub' valuation" due to its stakes in Match and ANGI, which at current prices imply negative enterprise value for IAC. "Though IAC's potential spin-off of these holdings may shrink the 'stub,' we view Vimeo as IAC's most exciting holding, Dotdash as a strong cash generator, and Turo (minority stake) as an interesting foray into online autos," Jones wrote. He also sees strong international opportunity for Match but is worried about the risk of an economic downturn and the threat of Alphabet Inc.'s Google when it comes to ANGI. IAC's stock is flat over the past three months, while Match's has risen 5.6% and ANGI's has slid 46%. The S&P 500 is up 3.8% in that time.

Shares of Match Group Inc. reversed course Thursday, swinging to a loss of 6.0% in afternoon trading after being up as much as 4.4% soon after the open, after Facebook Inc. entered the matchmaking fray with the launch of Facebook Dating. Match's stock had gained earlier after SunTrust Robinson Humphrey upgraded it to buy from hold, citing optimism for the continued growth of its Tinder dating app. Although the stock sold off after Facebook became a competitor, Analyst Benjamin Black at Evercore ISI said the launch of Facebook Dating "more than anything else" just validates the total addressable market of the online dating market. "Notably, FB Dating was launched in mid-2018, expanding its presence into 19 countries (before the U.S. launch) with no discernible impact on [Match's] subscriber or revenue growth trajectory, as users demonstrated a preference to separate their social and dating lives," Black wrote in a note to clients. Meanwhile, Match's stock selloff dragged shares of IAC/InterActiveCorp down 4.3%, after they were up as much as 1.7% earlier. IAC is Match's largest shareholder, as IAC is Match's parent company.
