Each Wednesday, starting November 10th at 3pm PST, I will be paired up with a different grandma or grandpa who is also an expert crafter/Creator and we will spend thirty minutes trading crafting secrets!” Tom Daley highlighted, Olympic gold medalist.

PINS Stock amid the News on Pinterest TV

Pinterest stock has dropped approximately 22%, 31%, and 20% in the past year, YTD, and three months respectively through Monday. The company recently reported a huge loss of its users especially from the United States following coronavirus easing. The troubles did not end there for the social media giant, since PayPal Holdings Inc (NASDAQ: PYPL) declined to purchase it for a deal worth $45 billion.

The company has since seen its market capitalization drop to approximately $28 billion at the time of reporting. A study conducted by MarketWatch indicates 32 ratings gave PINS stock an average rating of Over. However, the company will have to prove to its investors beyond reasonable doubts on how it intends to turn around in the next few quarters.
