Why the Bullish Stance on ETSY Stock?

Here’s what the Piper Sandler analyst had to say about ETSY stock in a note to clients obtained by CNBC:

“While we acknowledge that macro conditions remain pressured and consumer spending may be tipping to the downside, we believe ETSY has growth company characteristics at a GARP valuation.”
