On Monday, SoFi Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ:SOFI) shares edged lower 2.4% after boosting its convertible note offering to $1.1 billion from $750 million. The company said the notes can be converted to SoFi shares between 15th April 2026 and 15th October 2026.

Usually, when a company issues a convertible debt, it creates an opportunity for the dilution of outstanding shares, thereby adding pressure on the stock price. As a result, the stock price of the company tends to decline after the announcement of the convertible debt.

SOFI looks overvalued

From an investment perspective, SoFiTtechnologies shares trade at a steep price-sales ratio of 15.79, making the stock less attractive to value investors. However, the San Francisco, CA-based personal finance company offers exciting growth opportunities with its targeted products.

Its portfolio of products include student loan refinancing, mortgages and investing, which suffered from the adverse economic effects of the pandemic. However, with vaccinations intensifying and Merck & Co Inc.’s (NYSE:MRK) boosting the market confidence, SOFI could recover in the coming quarters.

Moreover, analysts expect its earnings to grow by 86.50% next year, making the stock potentially attractive to growth investors.

Is a channel breakout close?

Technically, SOFI seems to be trading within a sideways channel formation in the intraday chart. However, the stock recently rallied to trade slightly above the trendline resistance before pulling back.

Therefore, SoFi Technologies’ next rebound could lead to a breakout if the market optimism continues to grow. As a result, investors could target potential rebound profits at approximately $17.76, or higher at $19.73. On the other hand, if the pullback continues, the stock could find support at $13.86, or lower at $11.84.

SOFI and industry could bounce back

In summary, although SOFI shares are down more than 32% since 8th June, the stock is still up more than 52% over the last 12 months, meaning there is an opportunity to rally closer to June highs. 

Moreover, with analysts expecting its bottom line to improve by more than 86% next year, it could be time to buy the stock.
