    As Roku Gets Bigger, Roku Stock Will Become More Stable

    Life as a public company for streaming-device maker Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) has been nothing short of a roller coaster ride. Over the course of its 16 months on Wall Street, Roku stock price first went from $14 to $50, then dropped to $30, rallied to $80, dropped to $30 again, and rallied to $40, where it stands today. The volatility of Roku stock can be chalked up to the enormous variation in Roku's potential future performance. On one end, ROKU could become the face of streaming-service aggregation, turn into the cable box of the streaming world, and one day have hundreds of millions of active accounts, through which the company will collect billions of dollars from revenue sharing and ads. In this scenario, Roku stock could be worth a lot one day. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Dark Horse Stocks You Really Need to Look at for 2019 Conversely, Roku could be squashed by competitors in this space, and rapidly lose active accounts and revenue. In this scenario, Roku stock could be worth nothing one day. As a result, Roku stock could be worth nothing, in the future, it could be worth $20 billion-plus one day, or it could end up being worth anything in between. That's a wide range, so wide that it explains the high volatility of Roku stock price. This volatility will eventually subside as the company's range of outcomes narrows in the future after it has grown. But the valuation of Roku stock will ultimately be at the upper end of the $0-$20 billion range, so the narrowing process will boost Roku stock. ### Positive Developments Make the Bull Thesis on Roku Stock More Likely In late 2018, the market seemingly forgot that Roku is likely to remain a key component of the rapidly growing streaming market over the long-term. But in 2019, there have been multiple positive developments which have reminded investors that Roku is a growth company. Consequently, Roku stock has rallied this month. First, Roku added paid subscriptions to Roku Channel, thereby allowing subscribers to watch paid programming from Showtime, Starz, and Epix through the Roku Channel. Second, Roku reported strong fourth-quarter engagement numbers that included a 40% increase in active accounts and nearly 70% growth of streaming hours. Third, Walmart (NYSE:WMT) backed out of plans to launch a streaming service, showing that streaming is hard to do, and that Roku has a big enough moat to keep big competitors away. All together, these positive developments underscore that Roku continues to innovate, expand, and grow at a rapid rate, perhaps so quickly that it is deterring other companies from entering the space. That's a major positive development for Roku stock. It means that the bear thesis that competitors will squash Roku and Roku stock is overstated. It also means that the bull thesis of ROKU turning into a major streaming player continues to gain traction. ### Increased Size Will Bring Increased Stability It's difficult to predict the long-term fate of small companies, so they tend to be highly volatile. As those small companies grow, though, investors gain visibility into their long-term outlook, the range of possible outcomes narrows, and their stocks become more stable. This process will be favorable for ROKU. Roku is really small right now. The company has just 27 million active accounts, versus Netflix's (NASDAQ:NFLX) 140 million paid members. Thus, the question right now is whether Roku will grow to 140 million members like Netflix or lose its 27 million members to bigger competitors like Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN). Investors have been uncertain about the answer to that question. As a result, Roku bounced around wildly in 2017 and 2018. These wild swings may slow in 2019. That's because ROKU has been a public company for six quarters and in each of those six quarters, its active account growth has been 40% or higher, while its streaming hours have increased by at least 50%. That is consistent and healthy growth which underscores that, regardless of the surrounding competitive environment, Roku 's continued leverage of technology and network effects have enabled it to remain a leader of the streaming device market. The longer Roku's growth remains consistent and large, the more likely the bulls' thesis will become, and the more investors will write off the bear thesis as inaccurate. As this happens, Roku stock price will rise, and at a much more steady and stable pace than has previously been the case. ### The Bottom Line on ROKU ROKU has been highly volatile over the past 16 months because it's been a small company with a wide range of possible outcomes. But Roku is getting bigger, and is it does, it is becoming increasingly clear that this company has staying power in the streaming market, which is poised to grow over the long-term. The clearer that becomes, the higher Roku stock price will go. As of this writing, Luke Lango was long ROKU, AAPL, and AMZN. ### More From InvestorPlace * 2 Toxic Pot Stocks You Should Avoid * 10 High-Growth Stocks for the Return of the Bull * The 10 Best Index Funds to Buy and Hold * 10 Lithium Stocks to Buy Despite the Market's Irrationality Compare Brokers The post As Roku Gets Bigger, Roku Stock Will Become More Stable appeared first on InvestorPlace.

    Roku to remove Infowars from its platform, stock extends gains

    Shares of Roku Inc. hiked up 1.2% in morning trade Wednesday, adding to the previous session's 2.6% surge. The streaming platform said late Tuesday that it has decided to remove the controversial channel Infowars from its platform. "After the InfoWars channel became available, we heard from concerned parties and have determined that the channel should be removed from our platform," the company said in an emailed statement to MarketWatch late Tuesday. "Deletion from the channel store and platform has begun and will be completed shortly." Roku faced a public backlash after the it added the far-right conspiracy-theory promoting channel Infowars, although a number of companies, including Apple Inc. , Twitter Inc. , Facebook Inc. and Google parent Alphabet Inc. , banned the channel. Roku's stock has tumbled 36% over the past three months, while the S&P 500 has slipped 6.8%.

    5 Stocks That Could Be the Next Amazon

    [Editor's Note: This article was originally published in September 2018. It has been updated to reflect changes in the market.] Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) has been one of the more impressive stocks of the past 25 years. In fact, AMZN now has returned well over 100,000% from its initial public offering (IPO) price of $18 ($1.50 adjusted for the company's subsequent stock splits). A large part of the returns has come from two factors. First, Amazon has vastly expanded its reach. What originally was just an online bookseller now has its hands in everything from cloud computing to online media to groceries. And its shadow is even larger … Amazon's buyout of Whole Foods rattled the retail market. Similarly, its entry into healthcare by buying PillPack -- as well as its healthcare partnership with Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.B) and JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM) -- sent ripples through the healthcare sector. In response, Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) teamed up with Kroger (NYSE:KR) to "build the grocery store of the future." And this week, MSFT and Walgreens (NASDAQ:WBA) announced a partnership to fend off Amazon. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Secondly, as a stock, AMZN has managed the feat of keeping a growth stock valuation for over two decades. I've long argued that investors can't focus solely on the company's high price-earnings (P/E) ratio to value Amazon stock. But however an investor might view the current multiple, the market has assigned a substantial premium to AMZN stock for over 20 years now, and there's no sign of that ending any time soon. * Top 10 Global Stock Ideas for 2019 From RBC Capital It's an impressive combination, and one that's likely impossible, or close, to duplicate. But these five stocks have the potential to at least replicate parts of the Amazon formula. All five have years, if not decades, of growth ahead. New market opportunities abound. And while I'm not predicting that any will rise 100,000% -- or 1,000% -- these five stocks do have the potential for impressive long-term gains. ### Stocks That Could Be the Next Amazon Stock: Square (SQ) Source: Chris Harrison via Flickr (Modified) Admittedly, I personally am not the biggest fan of Square (NYSE:SQ) stock. I like Square as a company, but I continue to question just how much growth is priced into SQ already. Of course, skeptics like myself have done little to dent the steady rise in AMZN stock. And valuation aside, there's a clear case for Square to follow an Amazon-like expansion of its business. Back in January, Instinet analyst Dan Dolev compared Square to Amazon and Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL, NASDAQ:GOOG), citing its ability to expand from its current payment-processing base: "In 10 years, Square is likely to be a very different company helped by accelerating share gains from payment peers and relentless disruption of services like payroll and human resources." Just as Amazon used books to expand into e-commerce, and then e-commerce to expand into other areas, Square can do the same with its payment business. The small business space is ripe for disruption, as Dolev points out. Integrating payments into payroll, HR, and other offerings would dramatically expand Square's addressable market - and lead to a potential decade or more of exceptional growth. Again, I do question whether that growth is priced in, with SQ trading at well over 90x forward earnings. But if -- again, like AMZN -- Square stock can combine a high multiple with consistent, impressive, expansion, it has the path to create substantial value for shareholders over the next five to 10 years. ### Stocks That Could Be the Next Amazon Stock: (JD) Source: Daniel Cukier via Flickr In China, (NASDAQ:JD) is the company closest to following Amazon's model. While rival Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) gets most of the attention, it's that truly should be called the "Amazon of China." Like Amazon (and unlike Alibaba), holds inventory and is investing in a cutting-edge supply chain. It, too, is expanding into brick-and-mortar grocery, like Amazon did with its acquisition of Whole Foods Market. A partnership with Walmart (NYSE:WMT) should further help its off-line ambitions. is even cautiously entering the finance industry. At the moment, however, JD stock is going in the exact opposite direction of AMZN. The stock has plunged of late. An arrest of the company's CEO has been a recent driver. So have mixed earnings reports and a Chinese bear market. Clearly, there are myriad risks here, even near the lows. But AMZN saw a few pullbacks over the years as well. And while JD may never rise to the scale of Amazon -- or even out-compete Alibaba -- at its current valuation it doesn't have to. JD now trades at near-40x forward EPS. That's despite a series of investments depressing near-term profitability -- and building out long-term capabilities -- and 40% revenue growth in 2017, with expectations for a nearly 30% increase in 2018. * 7 Media Stocks That Make Prime M&A Targets If investor confidence returns, JD has a path to enormous upside. And even with the near-term jitters facing the stock, the long-term strategy still seems intact, and likely the closest in the market to that of Amazon. ### Stocks That Could Be the Next Amazon Stock: Shopify (SHOP) Source: Shopify via Flickr E-commerce provider Shopify (NYSE:SHOP) probably doesn't have quite the same opportunity for expansion as Square. And it, too, has a hefty valuation, along with a continuing bear raid from short-seller Citron Research. But I've remained bullish on the SHOP story, even though valuation is a question mark, even after a recent pullback. Shopify is dominant in its market of offering turnkey e-commerce services to small businesses. That's exactly where consumer preferences are headed: small and unique over large and bland. And because of offerings like Shopify (and Amazon Web Services), those small to mid-sized businesses can compete with the giants. Meanwhile, Shopify does have the potential to expand its reach. Just 29% of revenue comes from overseas, a proportion that should grow over time. It's moving toward capturing larger customers as well through its "Plus" program, picking up Ford (NYSE:F) as one key client. The development of an ecosystem for suppliers and the addition of new technologies (like virtual reality) give Shopify the ability to offer more value to customers … and to take more revenue for itself. Like SQ, SHOP is dearly priced. But both companies have an opportunity to grow into their valuations. And considering long runways for Shopify's adjacent markets, it should keep a high multiple for some time to come. As a stock, if not quite as a company, SHOP has a real chance to follow the AMZN formula for long-term upside. ### Stocks That Could Be the Next Amazon Stock: Roku (ROKU) Source: Shutterstock Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) might have the best chance of any company in the U.S. market to follow Amazon's strategic playbook. The ROKU stock price is a concern, given that the stock more than doubled in April and it has continued to climb higher, even amid the selloff in tech stocks in October. At 10x revenue, ROKU isn't close to cheap. But -- perhaps even more so than Square -- Roku now isn't what Roku is going to be in ten years. The hardware business is a loss leader, but one that allows Roku to serve as the gateway to content for millions of customers. As the company pointed out after recent earnings, it's already the third-largest distributor of content in the U.S. The Roku Channel is seeing increasing viewership. It's already up to more than 27 million viewers! The company offers pinpoint targeting of advertisements -- without the messy data problems afflicting Facebook (NASDAQ:FB). Roku is becoming increasingly embedded in TVs, though a deal between Amazon and Best Buy (NYSE:BBY) raised some fears about those software efforts going forward. It has a plan to roll out home entertainment offerings like speakers and soundbars, creating a long-sought integrated experience. It could even, as it grows, look to develop or acquire content itself, positioning Roku not as just a conduit to Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) but a rival. * 7 Video Game Stocks on Steep Discount The bull case for Roku stock is that its players are like Amazon's books -- not a great business on their own, but a way to garner customers and get a foot in the door of the exceedingly valuable media business. What Roku does now that it has entered will determine the fate of ROKU stock. But the amount of options and still a somewhat modest market cap (under $5 billion) mean that betting on its strategy could be a lucrative play. ### Stocks That Could Be the Next Amazon Stock: Workday (WDAY) Source: Workday Workday (NASDAQ:WDAY) is starting to look like the enterprise software version of Amazon. Its core HR product has driven huge gains in WDAY stock, which now has a $36 billion market cap. But Workday is just getting started. The company previously announced that it would buy Adaptive Insights to build out its financial planning capabilities. It has already rolled out analytics and PaaS (platform-as-a-service) offerings that add billions to its addressable market. Here, too, valuation looks stretched, to say the least, but the story here still looks attractive. Workday is never going to be as famous as Amazon, or as large. But if its strategy works, it will be as important to, and as embedded with, its corporate customers as Amazon is with its consumers. As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned. ### More From InvestorPlace * 2 Toxic Pot Stocks You Should Avoid * 10 Companies That Could Post Decelerating Profits * 10 A-Rated Stocks the Smart Money Is Piling Into * Mizuho: 7 Long-Term Value Stocks to Buy Now Compare Brokers The post 5 Stocks That Could Be the Next Amazon appeared first on InvestorPlace.

    How to Play Netflix and Roku Stock for Massive Gains

    It has been somewhat like "Must See TV" in Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) stock and Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) of late. But to prevent watching a horror movie in your portfolio unfold, our suggestion is to wait for a programming change to a less exciting, but important broadcast to appear on the price charts. After this, buy ROKU stock and NFLX stock. Let me explain. I'm guessing you've probably enjoyed your share of NBC's "Must See TV." Not to date myself, but my favorite era was when the slogan was backed up with Friends, Seinfeld and ER. That's right, back when unreliable VCR's, once-a-week broadcasting time slots or renting from your neighborhood Blockbuster to catch episodes of your favorite shows were ubiquitous with watching television. Thank you Roku and Netflix! InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Today, how we watch television and a marketplace dominated by streaming stocks Netflix and Roku has been more than a welcome change. With the technological access provided by ROKU and NFLX, people can watch virtually any type of television programming 24/7 and from nearly anywhere they chose. But before you jump off that couch to buy into these two streaming stocks, realize investing in a secular growth story like ROKU stock and NFLX can provide both crowd-pleasing, action packed performances, as well as scare the you-know-what out of their paid audiences with gut-wrenching price action. * 10 Key Emerging-Market Stocks to Buy for Contrarian Investors The good news is that following large corrections and sharp, market-leading technical rebuttals where the role of protagonist has switched from bear to bull, it's time to put ROKU stock and NFLX stock in your queue for purchase in the not-too-distant future. ### Pairs Stock Strategy Long: ROKU Stock Despite its dominance in the over-the-top streaming television market, Roku's puny capitalization of around $4.4 billion and opportunistic position to grow much larger in the years to come comes with a price … namely, over-the-top volatility in ROKU stock. During this past quarter's market correction this persona manifested itself in shares of Roku moving from a tenacious position of relative strength and setting all-time-highs and straight into an equally bone-chilling deep retracement that likely scared the bejesus out of anyone other than the most zealous ROKU stock bull. More recently, Roku's horrifying correction, which "narrowly" broke key lateral and 76% supports, performed a volatile about-face, much to the relief of those devoted ROKU stock holders. Now, with shares carving out a simple pullback pattern that's currently three days in duration, it's almost time to buy shares. For bullish investors agreeable with ROKU's big picture prospects off and on the price chart, I'd suggest waiting for the current three-day simple pullback pattern to confirm a low is in place. That should happen sometime in the next day if a daily chart entry is to appear. If today's rarer relative quiet persists, the pullback may grow deeper and establish confirmation on the weekly chart. Either way, buying on weakness and setting either a pattern stop-loss or a money stop below $30 makes sense given the market's own aggressive rally over the past two weeks. And it's one likely due for a modest encore performance from a bearish protagonist. ### Pairs Stock Strategy Long No. 2: NFLX Stock As our other streaming stock, Netflix's correction of 45% from its June all-time-high, seems almost quaint compared to ROKU stock. But don't let the veteran's performance fool you. It's still highly volatile. Despite its hefty capitalization of around $141 billion, NFLX stock's 45% correction still managed to come in at roughly twice the NASDAQ's punishing drop. Sure, the horror show in Netflix shares took a couple more months to make bulls run for the exits. But that's a much harder-to-stomach decline than the typical 30% most growth stocks like NFLX endure during healthier market climates. * 7 Stocks to Buy That Are Ready for Takeoff Furthermore, with its triple-digit price tag, the still-high volatility can feel even more nauseating in bearish environments, as well as like winning an Oscar when things go right like they have lately. But don't think for a second that means the coast is clear for buying NFLX stock today. Currently, Netflix has staged an equally impressive, but much swifter overbought 45% price reversal into zone resistance. This fragile position is punctuated by the 200-day simple moving average, 50% - 62% retracement levels and a downtrend line. Bearing that in mind, NFLX stock is in need of a less exciting, but important program change similar to what's going on in ROKU stock before investors consider buying shares. In fact, given the staunch technical barrier, a "best short-term bearish performance" by a market large cap could be forthcoming before bulls take the stage again.
