Marqeta: Strong Start To The Year; Remaining Focused On Profitability

Marqeta reported Q1 revenue and TPV growth of 54% and 53% respectively, both beating expectations. 2022 revenue growth is expected to be just shy of 40%, though adjusted EBITDA loss margin is expected to be in the high-single digits. With the stock down around 65% from all-time highs, there remains a lot of long-term value with the company trading under 5x 2023 revenue.
