Uber's stock just hit a new record low after last week's disastrous earnings report

Shares of Uber sank more than 7% to a new record low price on Monday, closing at $37.01.

The stock's previous bottom of $37.10 was hit on May 13, two days after the ride-hailing giant's initial public offering.

Last week, Uber reported second-quarter earnings that fell short of investor expectations and catalyzed a sell-off that sent shares down as much as 10%.

Despite the recent struggles, Wall Street remains bullish on the stock, with many analysts recommending the name as a buy.

"While there are considerable risks in ownership across the space given the intense competition, regulatory issues, and operating pressures, we continue to believe the risk/reward in owning the leader in this space is favorable and we remain Buy-rated," Goldman Sachs' Heath Terry told clients following the company's earnings print.
