: PINS | Pinterest, Inc. News, Ratings, and Charts

PINS – Despite the recent market correction, the reopening economy and supportive government policies should drive the performance of some quality growth stocks. Wall Street analysts expect beaten-down growth stocks Pinterest (PINS) and Duolingo (DUOL) to deliver solid returns in the near term. So, it could be wise to add them to your watchlist now.

Since the beginning of this year, the stock market has been in correction territory as the Federal Reserve hinted at a rise in interest rates from near zero as soon as March after bond-purchase tapering ends. The market is predicting four rate hikes in 2022 due to omicron-induced inflationary pressures. 

However, according to The Conference Board, the U.S. real GDP is expected to rise 3.5% in fiscal 2022. This should bode well for stocks that possess solid growth attributes. 

So, it could be wise to bet on growth stocks, Pinterest, Inc. (PINS) and Duolingo, Inc. (DUOL), which have declined significantly over the past month. Wall Street analysts expect these stocks to soar more than 80% in the near term.

PINS’ revenue surged 43% year-over-year to $632.93 million in the third quarter, ending September 30, 2021. The company’s adjusted EBITDA grew 117% year-over-year to $201.47 million. Its non-GAAP net income came in at $190.55 million, representing a 119% year-over-year increase. Also, its non-GAAP EPS came in at $0.28, up 115.4% year-over-year.
