On Feb. 5, Keybanc analyst Justin Patterson maintained an Overweight rating on Pinterest and raised the price target from $37 to $48. The new price target suggests about 17% upside for Pinterest.

From a technical analysis perspective, Pinterest’s stock looks set to trade higher over the coming days, having developed a possible bull flag pattern within an uptrend. It should be noted, however, that holding stocks or options over an earnings print is akin to gambling because stocks can react bullishly to an earnings miss and bearishly to an earnings beat.

Traders and Investors looking to play the possible upside in Pinterest stock but with diversification may choose to take a position in the AXS 2X Innovation ETF (NASDAQ: TARK). TARK is an actively managed double-leveraged ETF aiming to return 200% of the daily performance of Cathie Wood-led ARK Innovation ETF (ARCA: ARKK), the latter which holds a 0.42% weighting of Pinterest.

For traders bearish on Pinterest, AXS Short Innovation Daily ETF (NASDAQ: SARK) is an actively managed ETF aiming to inversely track the daily performance of ARKK.
