NYSE:DASH   DoorDash, Inc

- DoorDash has shown tremendous growth compared to its counterparts like GrubHub and UberEats, during the Covid pandemic.
- In terms of meal delivery shares, DoorDash currently covers 57%.
- Dashers - the deliverymen on DoorDash - are gig workers, but the Biden administration has signaled that they should be classified as employees
- This would induce additional costs, and with DoorDash still not being a profitable company yet, this could negatively impact the stock's price.
- While this company is still not profitable, their Q2 financials demonstrate great growth trajectory
- Their increase in revenue isn't amazing, but the absolute value is quite high.
- Their Gross Order Value ( GOV ) has been growing for 5 consecutive quarters.

Technical Analysis
- The chart demonstrates that the stock is very volatile.
- But ever since we tested the IPO price support in May, we have been in an uptrend, forming higher lows and higher highs.
- The price is trading above the Exponential Moving Average ( EMA ) Ribbon
- A break and close above $214 could lead this stock to retest its all time highs at $256

Institutional Investors
- SoftBank holds the most stocks, owning 12.89% of the company (43.5m shares)
- The runner up on the list is Sequoia Capital, with 11.66%
- Tiger Global Management holds 3.23%, and Morgan Stanley Investment Management holds 3.13%
- Among known hedge fund managers as well, the top holders on the list (by order) are:
- Chase Coleman (Tiger Global Management)
- Jim Simons (Renaissance Technologies)
- Ray Dalio (Bridgewater Associates)
- Ken Griffin ( Citadel )

DoorDash is a very interesting company with a business model proven successful by other companies overseas. It would be important to see the continuation in growth momentum and the company turning profitable in the next few years. Especially with a lot of institutional interest, this stock could definitely be added to your watchlist.
