There are some stocks out there that are just winners. Time and time again, they defy expectations and head higher than anyone thought imaginable. I’m talking about Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX), Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX), Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA), among others.
Dougherty & Co.’s Catharine Trebnick is another analyst that’s joined the bullish fray, initiating the firm’s coverage on Twilio stock with a “Buy” rating. The company “sits near the epicenter of enterprise digital transformation,” which she believes will translate into a revenue growth pace of 25% for years to come. Most of those bulls were glad to tout the company’s fourth quarter revenue growth of 41%, using it as evidence to support their stance.
The streaming music service bought an advertising specialist last month, and one analyst absolutely loved that deal. That looks like a mistake.

Pandora Media Inc (NYSE:P) is also well-known, and the largest of them all, Spotify Technology SA (NYSE:SPOT), just went public on Tuesday, April 3. In this case, I’m a customer of SPOT and like the service very much, but I won’t be going anywhere near the stock.

It was investing legend Bill Miller and his team at the Legg Mason Value Trust that came out of the process with one of the biggest pieces of Google on Wall Street. Miller and colleagues like Michael Mauboussin had become experts in analyzing young, distruptive companies, and they valued Google in the $80s, right around its actual auction price of $85, thus winning a huge allocation. People haven't done many Dutch auctions since the Google listing, but streaming music giant Spotify offered Wall Street a similar puzzle to solve when it conducted a direct listing on the New York Stock Exchange on Tuesday, bypassing underwriters who manage the supply and demand of share offerings and set a price, all for a fee.
NEW YORK/SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Shares of Spotify Technology SA (SPOT.N) ended up 12.9 percent on their first day of trade on the New York Stock Exchange, a smooth debut that could pave the way for other companies looking to go public without the aid of Wall Street underwriters. The stock ended the session at $149.01, valuing the world's largest streaming music service at $26.5 billion. The direct listing was seen as a test case for other companies tempted to list without selling new shares, and for bankers that could lose out on millions of dollars in underwriting fees for future initial public offerings.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Spotify's opening act on Wall Street struck a chord with investors betting the unprofitable company's trend-setting music streaming service will maintain its early lead over Apple and other powerful challengers.
Spotify (SPOT.N), the global streaming music leader could face a rocky reception from investors, Chief Executive Daniel Ek warned fans and employees ahead of a highly anticipated New York market listing on Tuesday. Since launching its streaming music service in 2008, the Stockholm-founded company has overcome heavy initial resistance from big record labels and among some major music artists to transform how the industry makes money. The rise of U.S. file-sharing service Napster triggers a tidal wave of music piracy by consumers, ravaging sales of CDs and creating a crisis for the music industry.
