Jefferies analyst John Hecht initiated coverage of SOFI stock with a buy rating. That matches the current analyst consensus, which comes from four buy ratings and one hold rating.

To go along with the buy rating is a price target of $25 per share for SOFI stock. That’s slightly above the consensus price target of $24.90 per share. It also represents a potential 65% upside for the stock compared to its closing price on Tuesday.

So what’s behind the bullish rating for SOFI stock? Here’s what Hecht said in a letter obtained by TheStreet.com.

“An industry leader in the rapidly expanding neobank space, SoFi boasts an exhaustive consumer finance product suite, a robust digital platform, and omnichannel execution. We believe this highly synergistic business model, which encourages significant cross-sell activity, will propel user growth, margins, and profitability over the long term.”

SOFI stock is seeing heavy trading on today’s news. As a result, some 16 million shares of the stock have changed hands as of this writing. That’s quickly approaching the company’s daily average trading volume of about 20 million shares.

SoFi Technologies is a personal finance company based out of San Francisco. Its services include student loan refinancing, mortgages, personal loans, credit cards, investing, and banking via the company’s mobile app and website.

SOFI stock was up 7.3% as of Wednesday morning and is up 33.4% since the start of the year.
