  •  The analyst sees Amplitude as "strongly positioned amid the ongoing wave" of front office digital transformation and adoption of product-led growth models.
  • UBS analyst Taylor McGinnis initiated coverage with a Buy rating and $78 PT. 
  • The company is the clear leader in an early-stage and predominately greenfield market it refers to as digital optimization, McGinnis notes. 
  • The analyst says the space "appears to be on the brink of an inflection" given the acceleration in engagement and use of websites/apps amid the pandemic. 
  • Amplitude seems well-positioned to capitalize "on an opportunity with plenty of runway ahead," says McGinnis.
  • BofA analyst Koji Ikeda initiated coverage with a Neutral rating and a $75 PT, implying an 8.8% upside. 
  • The company is a "leader" in the digital optimization opportunity as organizations leverage its platform to understand how consumers use digital products to drive better customer experiences, the analyst tells investors in a research note.
