Re: ROKU Competitors’ Strategies

We can also see that many TVs manufacturers, particularly higher end (Samsung and LG) are going with their own solution. The engagement on those systems (viewing hours) pales. Will they continue to invest in the platform for minimal return? [more]

Re: ROKU Competitors’ Strategies

Why does DIS need ROKU? DIS could easily mail their viewers their version of an Amazon Fire Stick or similar to what Comcast did today (see previous post for link to article) for free and most likely will.

Re: Buying SFIX

I took a quick look at Stitch Fix. If the long term model on the slideshow Karen linked to is to be believed, roughly 10% gross margin on a roughly $1.7b run rate would be something like 170m in annual profit. A PE ratio of 25 would mean SFIX should [more]

We are a growth investing board

A little insight: we board managers actually discussed changing the name of our board to something involving the word "growth." But judging by the posts warning us against growth stocks, I don't think that's necessary. Everyone who [more]

Re: For those of you new to this kind of situati

Growth companies in a bull market give you lots of reasons to own them, until they don't. Some remain great. Some not so much.

Re: DOCU Q2 earnings

In the CC, they addressed the 47% increase in billing (vs I think 27% ?) And pretty much said they expect it to even out and be in the mid 30s going forward.

Re: DOCU Q2 earnings

Thanks Mekong. I was glad to be holding a small position as well! My 4.3% at the end of August is now a 5.4% position due to the bounce today! Nice to have something going up as most things are pulling back.

Earlier today a poster asked if the party is over for now. I see it differently. Yes, it does appear that the market is "correcting" on some of our companies which have recently reported earnings. I'd define "correcting" as, [more]

Re: Cardlytics (CDLX)

Strike 1: Growth is awfully lumpy -- was this perhaps just a good Q?. 37% in 2Q19, 10% in 1Q19, 22% in 4Q18, 10% in 3Q18, 8% in 2Q18.

Re: stocknovice's August portfolio review

My best guess -- tons of ad revenue from YouTube. People get Roku for the all-in-one platform. Anything they watch on YouTube has ads.
