REA – UBS rates the stock as Buy

UBS assesses a strong 3Q result for REA Group though lowers its earnings forecasts due to a weaker residential volume outlook in FY23. Also, given weakness in building approvals figures there’s expected to be softness in developer revenues.

A fall in target to $130 from $155 reflects the analyst’s earnings downgrades and change to the UBS near-term risk-free rate assumption to 3.5% from 2.5%.
