BofA Securities analyst Emma Xu initiates coverage on Futu Holdings Limited (NASDAQ: FUTU) with a Buy rating and a price target of $195.00.

The analyst comments "We initiate coverage of Futu at Buy. Futu is a well-rounded online financial services platform, providing trading, wealth management, market data and information, social collaboration and corporate services. It primarily serves mainland China/HK population’s investment demand in HK/US markets, and is expanding into more countries (Singapore, US). We like the company given 1) its fast-growing client base and large addressable market (number of paying clients grew at 95% CAGR in 2016-20 to 517k, but only accounted for 4.3% of its 11.9mn users or 1.9% of our estimated near-term potential clients); 2) significant operating leverage from cross-selling and economies of scale; 3) leading technology from first-mover advantage, Tencent’s support and continued R&D investments; 4) social community increased user engagement and stickiness, likely to replicate the success of East Money; and 5) upside from US self-clearing system in the near term and wealth management platform in the medium term."
