Also, individual investors have a Very Negative view of the company, given that in the last 30 days, the number of portfolios (tracked by TipRanks) holding the stock decreased by 3.2%.

Is SoFi Technologies a Buy, Sell, or Hold? 

SoFi continues to deliver strong financial performance and is focused on bolstering its balance sheet. Additionally, its high-quality deposit base contributes to a decrease in its cost of capital.

However, the persistently high interest rate environment has sparked concerns about its loan origination and credit quality, negatively impacting its share price. Furthermore, the issuance of convertible senior notes has raised investor concerns about potential capital dilution, putting further pressure on SoFi stock. According to the TipRanks Stock Analysis tool, “Bulls Say, Bears Say,” analysts bearish on SOFI stock see dilution from the issuance of stocks to raise capital.

Given the near-term concerns, Wall Street remains sidelined on SOFI stock. With five Buys, 10 Holds, and three Sells, SOFI stock has a Hold consensus rating. Analysts’ average price target on SOFI stock is $8.91, implying 28.76% upside potential.
