Goldman Sachs on Yandex

Goldman Sachs (GS) believes Yandex (YNDX) will show a strong performance in the near future. Yandex mainly operates internationally in countries such as Russia as an Internet search engine.

In the medium term, Yandex could see huge growth in its market share as the e-commerce business could see high growth in major emerging nations (EEM) (VWO).

Goldman Sachs wrote, “Yandex is Russia’s largest search engine…We expect market share growth across segments in the medium term as well as continued growth of addressable markets. Recently announced JVs will also create substantial synergies, in our view.”
