Marqeta: Time To Make A Mark

Jan. 30, 2023 7:08 PM ETMarqeta, Inc. (MQ)SQ, DASH, ICART4 Comments


  • Marqeta, Inc. has seen significant share price losses since its 2021 IPO.
  • Losses are driven by high valuations and increasing losses, as top line sales trends remain quite healthy.
  • The valuation reset has been significant, as an 80% loss in the shares understates the change in the enterprise valuation following a big cash position.
  • Appeal is luring, but Marqeta, Inc. losses need to show some improvements in the near term.
