On Feb. 5, Keybanc analyst Justin Patterson maintained an Overweight rating on Pinterest and raised the price target from $37 to $48. The new price target suggests about 17% upside for Pinterest.

From a technical analysis perspective, Pinterest’s stock appears poised to trend upwards in the coming days, potentially forming a bull flag pattern within an uptrend. However, it’s crucial to recognize that holding stocks or options over an earnings print is akin to gambling, as stocks can react unexpectedly.
