Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) price target upgrade
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak told clients in a research note Wednesday, that his team had raised its 12-month price target on Google shares to $1,515 from $1,325, the highest target on Wall Street. The rating remains at ‘overweight’.
Nowak’s price target upgrade was mainly focused on the lack of value currently ascribed to its autonomous driving business, Waymo.
“We see the launch of Waymo’s ride-hailing service by year-end as a potential catalyst for value realization,” Nowak said in his client note. “We believe current Alphabet valuation ascribes little value for Waymo, implying it is still a call option.”
Morgan Stanley currently values Waymo at $45 billion, but Nowak said there is a possibility that it’s value could rise to as high as $175 billion.
“As Waymo grows, we see investors putting a higher success likelihood and value on the asset,” Nowak wrote. “Every 10 percent realization of our total potential Waymo value translates to about $25 per share.”
