The shares of Coupang Inc (NYSE: CPNG) have received a price target decrease from $50 to $40 by Mizuho. And Mizuho analyst James Lee is maintaining a “Neutral” rating on the company shares.

Lee noted that Coupang had reported a solid quarter, but the EBITDA losses will likely become wider due to investments into the grocery shift.

The net revenue increased 74% at $4.21 billion. The first quarter losses widened to $295 million.

—”Due to the company’s aggressive investment in fulfillment and a mix shift to grocery, we expect 2Q21 EBITDA losses to be larger than 1Q at -$159m, compared to our prior estimate of -$79m,” said Mizuho in a research report via MarketWatch.
