So what

According to the website The Fly, J.P. Morgan analyst DS Kim envisions robust results when GSX Techedu releases earnings on Wednesday at 8 a.m. EDT. Specifically, while consensus estimates expect 354% year-over-year revenue growth, Kim expects 370% growth, which would shatter expectations.

Kim raised the price target for GSX Techedu from $43 per share to $75, a whopping 74% hike. But it still carries a neutral rating. And considering the stock now trades around $93 per share, the price target actually represents significant downside.
