“The wonder-tale stories of children’s books show us that there are infinite possibilities of stories and worlds. The metaverse, the idea that describes the shared 3D spaces in a virtual universe, is enabling people to create fiction. Over the past six months, we initiated a new investment in Roblox. The firm was founded in 1989 by David Baszucki and Erik Kassel when they programmed a physics lab where students could study how cars would crash.

Today, Roblox has become a leading platform with a mission to build a human co-experience that enables billions of users to play, learn, and build friendships in the metaverse. Recent advances in cloud computing, computing devices, and machine learning, enable the materialization of the metaverse. Take what we have in virtual reality today and fast-forward a few decades. Humans will be able to experience unimaginable things and in a couple of millennia virtual economies are likely to become bigger than the physical trade on planet Earth.

Over the first quarter of 2021, Roblox reported 140% revenue growth, 42.1 million daily active users, and 9.7 billion engaged hours. The opportunity for this platform is massive.”

“A temporary factor might be a downturn in the high-yield bond market driving up LBO financing costs for the decline in 2021 GAAP revenue for Oracle Corporation (ORCL) due to a change in accounting methods. In all these examples, stock prices were driven well-below our calculations of intrinsic value. We invested in each company with good outcomes.

“While consumers resumed much of their spending by summer, what and how they used their Visas and Mastercards changed. For obvious reasons, people shifted to contactless payments—one of the Covid-era changes we think is permanent—and replaced travel purchases with online shopping and food delivery. Consumers spent more on their debit cards and less on their credit cards; Visa and Mastercard make more per transaction on the latter. They also make more on cross-border transactions that come mostly from international travel, which ground to a halt early in the pandemic. Visa’s and Mastercard’s earnings per share fell by 7% and 16%, respectively, compared to their usual mid-teens growth. We’re not too worried, and we think they’ll catch up nicely in the post-vaccine world. Visa’s stock returned 17.1% and Mastercard’s 20.2%.”
