Stifel lowered its price target SVMK shares to $26 from $28, while maintaining its hold rating. According to Stifel analysts, while some SVMK products have potential, it needs “additional evidence of traction in 2021” for it to become more optimistic on the stock. The company’s results were mixed in the fourth quarter, Stifel said.
