Allbirds Inc (NASDAQ:BIRD) traded higher Thursday following an upgrade from Morgan Stanley.
Morgan Stanley analyst Kimberly Greenberger upgraded Allbirds from an Equal-Weight rating to an Overweight rating and lowered the price target from $23 to $17.
Greenberger cited Allbirds revenue growth as a reason for the upgrade: “BIRD is a distinctive, ESG-driven brand and one of few double-digit growth stories in retail.”
With the stock having fallen from its highs near $20, the Morgan Stanley analyst thinks it offers a solid entry at current levels.
“The stock pullback yields an attractive entry point, particularly as we see an opportunity for BIRD to accelerate revenue growth in 2022,” Greenberger said.
