FuboTV (NYSE:FUBO) stock is getting a boost on Friday after Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter upgraded the sports streaming company’s shares.

That upgrade saw the analysts increasing FUBO stock from a “neutral” rating to an “outperform” rating. That’s a bullish stance next to analysts’ consensus “hold” rating for the shares. This comes from three “buy” ratings, four “hold” ratings, and a single “sell” rating.

One thing that didn’t change was the Wedbush analyst’s price target of $6 per share. That represents a potential 53% upside compared to the closing price of FUBO stock yesterday. It’s also worth mentioning that analysts’ consensus price prediction for FUBO is $8.46 per share.

Pachter’s Comments on FUBO Stock

The Wedbush analyst sees the current price of FUBO as a compelling entry point. He explains his reasoning for this stance in a note obtained by CNBC:

FuboTV has a solid head start in offering live sports programming to its subscribers, has a thriving and growing advertising business, and presents a compelling opportunity for a sports wagering company to partner with an established sports television broadcaster.

Trading of FUBO stock is decent on Friday with roughly 9 million shares on the move as of this writing. To put that in perspective, the company’s daily average trading volume is about 16 million shares.
