    Q results look good

    by blackoutbuzz Nov 6, 2014 4:35 PM

    Yeah it does not really track much with the general market but it's definitely volatile. I only have a small position I bought at ~65.

    SSTK's been executing very well so I have a fair level of confidence that their management understands the business model and its potential very well. At first I thought the business appeared somewhat simplistic and not all that hard to replicate, but now am starting to think hat first mover advantage and critical mass may actually make for a decent moat.

    The stock appears to have good support in the mid-60's and I may add if it drops down there again.. Just curious...do you see any better alternatives with similar metrics?

    off only 7 dollars in 7 days. Personally I don't like the way the stock trades. Im not a big believer in the story. Had a friend interested in it so I followed along. GL

    Sure SSTK's got a crazy high trailing PE. But the company is solidly profitable, the PEG is high but not outrageous at 2.7, revenue growth is pretty consistent, guidance is up more often than not, and the business model seems sustainable. I can see this company getting bought out by AMZN, AAPL, or maybe even YHOO or FB, for probably a 100% return.

    So what profitable technology companies do you know of with growth rates similar to SSTK that are trading at lower PE or PEG? Thanks.

    i don't know it only generates about 400 million in revs yet sports a nearly 3 billion dollar market cap with a pe of 121. Way under valued (sic.)

    What's not to like? SSTK delivers pretty steady growth quarter after quarter, unlike quite a few tech companies I follow.

    @@@@@4:34 pm Shutterstock beats by $0.02, beats on revs; guides Q4 revs in-line; guides FY15 revs above consensus (SSTK) : Reports Q3 (Sep) earnings of $0.26 per share, $0.02 better than the Capital IQ Consensus Estimate of $0.24; revenues rose 40.4% year/year to $83.7 mln vs the $82.42 mln consensus. Quarterly paid downloads increased 23% to 31.2 mln; Revenue per download increased 13% to $2.65
    Co issues in-line guidance for Q4, sees Q4 revs of $90-92 mln vs. $90.77 mln Capital IQ Consensus Estimate.
    Co issues upside guidance for FY15, sees FY15 revs of $430-435 mln vs. $420.50 mln Capital IQ Consensus Estimat

  • Slight beat on rev/earnings. 2014 rev guidance slightly positive and 2015 more so. I am sticking with this one.

  • This is a pretty significant hit for SSTK. I suppose with the advancements that brought video and music into the fold they have some breathing space but nevertheless not great news.

    @@@@@On November 4, 2014, Shutterstock, Inc. (the "Company") announced that James Chou, its Chief Technology Officer, will be leaving the Company at year-end.
