Goldman Sachs analyst Heath Terry upgraded Lyft (NASDAQ: LYFT) from Neutral to Buy with a price target of $58.00 (from $71.00).

The analyst comments "Lyft continues to gain share and is beginning to show the operational efficiencies that we've previously noted are critical to the ridehailing industry maturing beyond its hyper-competitive, venture-funded phase. With the stock trading at ~3x FY20 Sales versus comps at 3.6x, despite a growth rate that is ~2x faster, we believe the risk/reward in owning LYFT at these levels is favorable and raise our rating from Neutral to Buy."
