The shares of Rent the Runway Inc (NASDAQ:RENT) are popping today, last seen up 8.1% to trade at $17.52. At least three firms have initiated coverage of the security with an "overweight" rating, including KeyBanc, Piper Sandler, and Wells Fargo. Plus, Credit Suisse initiated coverage with an "outperform" rating, and a $20 price target. Wells Fargo noted the company's scalable business model and growth potential could support higher margins in the long term.

Rent the Runway stock just went public in October with an an initial public offering (IPO) price of $21. The majority of analysts had not yet taken a stance on the security prior to today. 

The Wall Street newbie notched an Oct. 27, all-time high of $24.77 right out of the gate, but has since taken a breather. Shares bounced off the $15.50 level last week, though a ceiling at the $18.50 area is keeping a lid on today's gains. The equity is trading back north of its newly formed 10-day moving average, though, and has added 11.8% over the past week.
