Uber Technologies (NYSE:UBER) stock is a hot topic on Monday after Jefferies analyst John Colantuoni named it one of the firm’s top picks.

In a new note to clients, Colantuoni reiterates a “buy” rating for shares of UBER stock. He also increases the price target for the shares from $47 each to $49 each. That represents a potential upside of 53.2% from its prior closing price.

Here’s what the Jefferies analyst said in his note to clients, as reported by CNBC.

“We estimate UBER’s core Rideshare/Restaurant Delivery businesses each operate in ~$1 trillion addressable markets, which implies just ~5% penetration and a long runway for growth. We believe UBER’s dominant scale and network effect support greater reinvestment into customer experience/adoption, which should spur frequency/stickiness and grow market share over time.”
