But Ben Schachter, an analyst for Macquarie, downgraded Twitter, saying that "nothing has fundamentally changed" since he gave it a "neutral" rating on Dec. 11.
His tweet-length research note, re-published by Business Insider, said: "We expect this to be among the shortest downgrade note you've ever read, as nothing fundamentally has changed since our Neutral initiation on Dec. 11, except that shares have risen 40%."
Schacter said shares of Twitter are worth $46.
"We continue to believe that Twitter as a company has a bright future and many opportunities ahead," he said. "However, as a stock, we believe nothing has changed over the last 15 days to justify the rise in valuation."
Schachter and Macquarie did not respond to a request for comment.
Santosh Rao, senior analyst and head of research for Greencrest Capital, has warned that the first weeks after any IPO can include unpredictable share prices.
