The shares of FuboTV (NYSE:FUBO) are soaring today, up 17.4% to trade at $20.73 at last check. The company announced wider-than-expected first-quarter losses of 59 cents per share after the close yesterday. However, it reported a revenue beat, and raised its full-year forecast. The security is also brushing off a price-target cut from Oppenheimer to $32 from $35.

FUBO has been careening lower since its Dec. 22, all-time high of $62.29. Shares have since pulled back all the way to the $14 level, with the 40-day moving average keeping a tight lid on the shares over the past several weeks. In the last six months, though, FUBO has added 23.6%.

Analysts are overwhelmingly optimistic on FuboTV stock. Of the eight in coverage, seven carry a "buy" or better rating, while only one says "hold." Plus, the stock's 12-month consensus price target of $41.50 is a whopping 110% premium to current levels.
