Citi analyst Drew Foster initiates coverage on LivePerson (NASDAQ: LPSN) with a Buy rating and a price target of $76.00.

The analyst comments "LivePerson is several years into a strategy shift that acknowledges asynchronous & omnichannel messaging as the driving forces behind customer interactions in the future, where Conversational Commerce is a likely corollary. After a painful migration process in 2016-17, LivePerson is three years into a top-line acceleration that appears sustainable. Quota-carrying headcount is projected to grow by +38% this year, and with new partnerships also adding to aggregate capacity, all indications suggest that LPSN’s 6x EV/2022 Sales multiple deserves more credit for >25% durable topline growth. We initiate with a Buy/High Risk rating and $76 price target."
