The analysts wrote, “We are initiating coverage of Jumia Technologies AG (JMIA) with a Hold rating and a $40 target price. Africa is early in the eCommerce adoption curve as online sales make up less than 1% of retail sales across the continent. A number of favorable demographic trends in the region point to an attractive long-term growth trajectory as points of friction are reduced. Jumia is the leading eCommerce player in Africa and has built a horizontal platform that’s well-positioned to benefit from positive secular trends over the long term. However, Jumia’s relatively high valuation compared to comparable marketplace platforms and long path to profitability drives our Hold rating as we await a more attractive entry point.””
