The Ratings Game: Lyft is a better bet than Uber, analyst says

Only one of the ride-hailing stocks is a buy, according to Stifel analyst Scott Devitt.

He initiated coverage of Uber Technologies Inc. shares UBER, -0.32% with a hold rating on Tuesday, while raising his price target on buy-rated Lyft Inc. shares LYFT, -1.89% to $76 from $70. Though Devitt is upbeat about more “rational” price activity in the industry, which he expects to boost Lyft’s stock, he still worries about Uber’s valuation as well as its “significantly long path to profitability.”

Lyft also stands to benefit from its partnerships and strategic positioning, according to Devitt. The company has been working with Alphabet Inc.
