Yesterday, the company announced it had formed one of its first major newspaper partnerships with Philadelphia Media Holdings, the owners of The Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News.
In a note released today, Goldman Sachs called the results ?very positive? but warned the key issue facing the company in the next 12 months depends on the overall health of the employment market, which is expected to slow.
Prudential Equity Research said in note that though Monster?s stock has taken a beating, the company still is solid. ?We believe the stock is undervalued and presents a good entry point for investors.?
