The Encouraging Outlook for DraftKings

The DraftKings Thesis: The company holds the top position in the legal North American online gambling market, with projected growth from approximately $20 billion in early 2024 to $30 billion by 2028, solely accounting for the existing states, Pitz stated in the initiation note.

“We see a vast opportunity as more states legalize, allowing DraftKings to dramatically expand its footprint and profitability,” the analyst wrote. “Early states are also becoming profitable faster, giving confidence in the foundational economics of the DraftKings model ahead of more legalization and expansion.”

Pitz also projected that the U.S. market could exceed $100 billion “if every state legalized OSB and iGaming.”
