: RBLX | Roblox Corp. News, Ratings, and Charts

RBLX – Despite a now hawkish Federal Reserve Bank, investor optimism drove the tech sector to a slight rebound last week. Tech giants are investing heavily in metaverse development, and Wall Street analysts expect certain beaten down yet quality metaverse stocks—Roblox (RBLX), Unity (U), and Matterport (MTTR)—to rally more than 85% in price in the coming months. Read on.

The Fed’s now hawkish outlook and surging market volatility caused tech stocks to sell-off earlier this month. However, the impressive financials of several tech companies in the last quarter have rekindled investors’ hope for the sector.

Furthermore, burgeoning metaverse development is fomenting a new frenzy among the tech giants. Increasing numbers of companies are gearing up to set foot in the space, with Apple Inc.’s (AAPL) CEO Tim Cook also recently hinting at the company’s possible entry into the metaverse. As innovations in the AI and ML world keep coming, the meta-world is looking ahead to the long-term. According to a Globe News Wire report, the metaverse’s market size is expected to grow at a 43.8% CAGR through 2028.

Given this backdrop, Wall Street analysts expect fundamentally strong beaten-down metaverse stocks Roblox Corporation (RBLX), Unity Software Inc. (U), and Matterport, Inc. (MTTR) to rally more than 85% in price in the near future. Thus, we think these stocks could be solid additions to one’s watchlist.
