What happened

Shares of DraftKings (DKNG 0.48%) were falling 6% heading into noontime trading Monday after a raft of analysts downgraded their price targets on the sportsbook's stock.

So what

DraftKings posted an impressive beat-and-raise performance last week after reporting revenue that was ahead of Wall Street's forecasts and at the high end of management's own guidance.

The company then hiked its full-year outlook for revenue to a range of $1.05 billion to $1.15 billion, an increase of $150 million over prior guidance, and more than double the amount of the first-quarter revenue beat.

That suggests management is expecting to see even stronger results in the coming quarters.

Now what

If the lowered price targets appear a bit incongruous considering how much Wall Street was lauding the company just a few days ago, a Morgan Stanley analyst said that on second thought, DraftKings is guiding to greater EBITDA losses this year and is going to be issuing more stock than it expected. As a result, he lowered the investment bank's target price to $63 per share from $66, but kept an overweight rating on it.

Similarly, analysts at Needham and Craig-Hallum slightly lowered their targets while also remaining otherwise bullish on the long-term prospects for the growth stock.

Cowen analyst Stephen Glagola, however, who is also very bullish on DraftKings, maintained his $70 target.
