06:22 EDTNFLX, AMZNCitigroup sees internet stocks underperforming this summer
Citigroup analyst Mark May says that even with the recent share pullbacks, the broader internet index has still meaningfully outperformed broader indices year-to-date. The group is nearing peak valuations, which could lead to underperformance through the summer, May tells investors today in a research note. He recommends avoiding shares of Twitter (TWTR), LinkedIn (LNKD) and Zillow Group (Z), as the companies are going through business transitions. The analyst believes Amazon.com (AMZN), eBay (EBAY), Yelp (YELP), Netflix (NFLX), GrubHub (GRUB) and Facebook (FB) have company specific factors that should enable them to outperform the internet group over the near term.
