Draftkings reveals cost-cutting initiative that could help to achieve profitability within two years
Draftkings (NASDAQ:DKNG) stock has risen +0.76% from its previous close to hit the $26.46 price level as analysts eye an imminent surge that could take the online gambling company further up the charts in the near future.
The company recently announced new cost-cutting measures that are designed to protect growth efforts and not diminish them. Nasdaq reported that Draftkings could soon begin reporting operating profits for the first time, which could lead to a major surge in the value of DKNG stock.
DKNG finds itself -65% down from its all-time high in March 2021, but its recent price action indicates that the worst of the bear trend could be over. DKNG surged +250% from under $10 to hit its yearly high of $34.67 in Q1 2023, and it could now be preparing for a swing back towards the top of this range.
