Twilio has seen a very volatile twelve months, with its shares rapidly appreciating earlier in 2019 before dropping in the latter part of 2019. Twilio aims to make communication between brands and their customers as frictionless as possible and is a leader in the CPaaS space. Instead of resting on its laurels, however, Twilio's CEO Jeff Lawson declares that his company's ambitions are getting even bigger.
Twilio (NYSE: TWLO), the leading cloud communications platform, today announced that it has been selected by Be My Eyes to power its mobile app connecting sighted volunteers with blind and low vision users over video chat.
Twilio lies behind the apps we use every day, including Uber and eBay. Here is what the fundamentals and technical analysis say about buying TWLO stock now.
The stock market continues to grind out new record highs, as equities pushed higher on Friday. Remember, Monday is closed in observation of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, so let's look at a few top stock trades for Tuesday. Top Stock Trades for Tuesday No. 1: Boeing (BA)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comBoeing (NYSE:BA) stock is moving lower on Friday, and as it's doing so, it's approaching the lower end of its recent trading range.Range support has stood firm for well over a year. The only time it failed came in late-2018, when the entire market was being hammered. Should $320 give way, it technically puts the $300 level on the table -- with the fourth-quarter lows near $286 possible below that.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsIf support holds, see if BA can take out its recent high at $344. If so, its 100-week moving average and downtrend resistance (blue line) are possible. Top Stock Trades for Tuesday No. 2: Pinterest (PINS)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comPinterest (NYSE:PINS) has suddenly found itself back in demand, with shares rallying from $20 to $24 in just a few trading sessions.Despite an upgrade propelling it higher on Friday, shares backed off after running into prior range support between $24 and $25, as well as the declining 100-day moving average.What now? Let's see if the stock can find its footing and continue to press higher. Otherwise, a correction down to $21 and/or the 20-day moving average may be in the cards. Top Stock Trades for Tuesday No. 3: Amazon (AMZN)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comA lot of investors are bemoaning the way Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) is trading lately. While it lacks the firepower that other mega-cap tech stocks have shown, it is doing better.Shares broke down below a rising wedge formation (purple lines), but the stock is finding support from the backside of prior channel resistance (blue line), as well as the 20-day moving average.Below this zone would be discouraging. But as long as it stays above the 200-day moving average, bulls still have something to work with. Below the 200-day, and that changes.On the flip side, bulls need to see AMZN clear $1,900 to regain momentum. Above puts the recent high of $1,917 on the table, followed by a potential test up to its July gap near $1,940. Top Stock Trades for Tuesday No. 4: Schlumberger (SLB)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comSchlumberger (NYSE:SLB) initially rallied on Friday after reporting earnings, but has since turned lower. Now comes make-or-break time.Near $37.50, SLB stock has the rising 50-day moving average and uptrend support (blue line) in play. Below this zone, and longs may want to consider hitting the exits. Below the 200-day moving average, though, and that's most certainly the case for traders.On the upside, investors can see that SLB failed to reclaim $40, a key technical level over the past year. If SLB can reclaim this mark, it will show that bulls are back in control. For now, though, let's see if that trend support holds up. Top Stock Trades for Tuesday No. 5: Twilio (TWLO)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comTwilio (NYSE:TWLO) has been like a little rocket. Shares broke out over long-term downtrend resistance (blue line) in December, while most growth stocks were already well out of their respective downtrends.In any regard, TWLO has been playing catch-up. On the last trading day of 2019, TWLO closed at $98.28. However, the stock headed north of $120 in five trading days since, all of which were positive. Now, shares are chopping between $117.50 and $121 -- the latter of which comes into play with the 200-day moving average.Below $117.50, and TWLO may correct a bit further given its large run. However, a move over the 200-day moving average, and the $123 mark could fire up the rally once more -- potentially sending TWLO over $130.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.

As we head into the last day of trading for 2019, Twilio (NYSE:TWLO) stock has fallen almost 35% from its summer high. The cloud communications software platform company is still in turnaround mode, and it still is not producing free cash flow.Source: rafapress / Shutterstock.com Twilio provides a text messaging platform for companies to communicate with their customers. The messages are secure and provide a direct link on a mass scale for businesses.Bottom line: TWLO has a $13 billion market value with almost no profits, no free cash flow and decelerating revenue growth. At a minimum, there is no margin of safety in the Twilio stock market value.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Recent Earnings Release Provides No HopeFor the nine months ending Sep. 30 Twilio's free cash flow was negative $14 million including capitalized software development costs.That is astounding, given that Twilio produced $803.2 million in revenue during the same period. * 7 'A'-Rated Stocks to Buy Under $10 When I see those kinds of numbers, I sometimes think, you know what? Let me be the CEO or CFO of the company. I could figure out a way to get the company to positive cash flow. Literally, how hard could it be?Granted, Twilio might be losing some key customers. There are reports that WhatsApp is scaling back usage of the Twilio app for its customers. TWLO Outlook Not Much BetterTwilio's outlook guidance was for a non-GAAP loss from operations of $5 million to $6 million in Q4. And it expects a full-year non-GAAP loss of $4 million to $5 million. Where is the hope in that for holders of Twilio stock?But then, for some reason, Twilio made a mistake in its earnings per share forecast. Originally they indicated that EPS for 2019 would be between 16 and 17 cents per share. But they had to make a correction, moving the range down to 12 to 13 cents per share.But does it matter? Twilio stock trades around $98 per share. That puts TWLO stock on forward price-to-earnings ratio of over 300 times. That is beyond overvalued. There is no margin of safety at that kind of price. What Should Investors Do With Twilio Stock?This is a stock that is valued so high that management basically doesn't care what happens to the price. That is more or less what they told Cramer in a recent CNBC interview.They are going to focus on the "long-term." Well, in the long-term, we are all dead, said the famous economist, John Maynard Keynes.Maybe they should focus on profitability to help investors understand the present valuation of Twilio stock. Here's one reason this would be a good idea: Short interest in TWLO stock is over 15% right now. Any more hiccups, including missed expectations, and short sellers will pounce further.In the end, that makes it harder to raise capital, and maybe even convince new large customers that your company is a growth story, which is where it's all at in the space.Moreover, it makes new investors, other than the original IPO investors, upset. Their expectations of growth and earnings for the company may not come to pass. They may lose patience and derate the valuation of the company.As of this writing, Mark Hake, CFA does not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Hedge funds and other investment firms that we track manage billions of dollars of their wealthy clients' money, and needless to say, they are painstakingly thorough when analyzing where to invest this money, as their own wealth also depends on it.

There were 17 $1 billion-plus tech acquisitions announced this year that involved Bay Area tech companies. They are detailed in the accompanying photo gallery.
Twilio (NYSE: TWLO), the leading cloud communications platform, today announced the company has been named one of the 2019 Best Workplaces for Diversity by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE. The Best Workplaces for Diversity are companies that are working thoughtfully to create inclusive cultures for women, people of color, LGBTQ people, employees who are 55 or older, and people who have disabilities.
Years from now, when we look back at the 2019 performance of Twilio (NYSE:TWLO), we'll regard it as a reasonable success. At time of writing, Twilio stock is up a little over 15%, which isn't too shabby. But compared to prior performances, and to names in the cloud sector, it's more than disappointing.Source: rafapress / Shutterstock.com Further, TWLO stock suffered a split personality this year. In the first half, shares skyrocketed 56%. However, the second half saw up to this point a 29% decline in market value. The performance of Twilio's cloud peers is best seen in the Global X Cloud Computing ETF (NASDAQ:CLOU), which is off less than 2% since June 30. The exchange-traded fund makes TWLO the 11th-largest holding among its 37-stock portfolio.Thus, we come across the inevitable question: Is TWLO merely consolidating for the next leg up or is the recent volatility a harbinger?InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips All the Signs are ThereFrankly, we have many signs that suggest the latter. For starters, the communications specialist does not seem to have a realistic pathway to profitability anytime soon. Net income losses continue to widen in both quarterly and annual comparisons. Of course, that's not the biggest concern for small, fast-rising tech investments like Twilio stock. But because it doesn't pay dividends, shareholders would like to see fundamental progress. * 7 'Strong Buy' Stocks to Put on Your Wish List And while Twilio still maintains impressive revenue growth on a percentage basis, you'd actually like to see more sales expansion. With the cloud communications provider making key but pricey acquisitions, the company must justify the market premium for TWLO stock.Finally, Twilio's balance sheet has become much more uncomfortable than it was in prior years. In my last write-up for Twilio stock, I mentioned the massive jump in goodwill. In a bull market, this is fine, so long as the acquisition that spiked goodwill starts paying its dues, if you will.However, with the pressured situation in the books, a high level of goodwill can become problematic. So, how should investors approach TWLO stock in 2020? Untapped Opportunities for Twilio StockIf you can't stomach the idea that your equity play could lose huge chunks of value, I'd be very cautious on TWLO stock. Although the underlying business is relevant and compelling, management has taken huge risks with its acquisitions. If those risks don't pan out, look out below!Moreover, the goodwill that I mentioned above could also become painfully problematic in a recession or bear market. Although we currently have a limited trade deal on hand, you must remember what the current administration represents. Stability and consistency it does not.However, if management can regain control of the narrative over the next few months, Twilio stock has a legitimate shot at surprising (positively, this time) in 2020. I say this because the tech firm is leaving many dollars on the table. If they can better market their services to capture unaddressed needs, TWLO can truly fly.Not surprisingly, Twilio's corporate clients are mostly physically located in California. According to HG Insights, over 1,000 companies in the Golden State do business with Twilio. That dwarfs any other state by a country mile.Also not surprising is that the tech and business services industries make up the majority of Twilio's client demographics. It really starts falling off a cliff from there. * 5 Large-Cap Dividend Stocks to Buy In the company's earlier stages , the lack of diversity in industry and location wasn't terribly important. But as the company grows via acquisitions, it needs to expand its scope. That's the challenge … and potentially a lid on TWLO stock momentum.However, it's also an opportunity. If Twilio can convince clients in finance, education, healthcare, retail and hospitality to take the plunge, the case for Twilio stock becomes much more palatable. Wall Street's Giving TWLO Stock a ChanceOf course, knowing what to do and actually doing it are two different things. Presently, the financials don't look very promising for Twilio stock.But as we all know, the markets represent speculation on future value, not past performance. Here, Wall Street appears to be giving TWLO an opportunity to make its case for 2020.Despite concerns and disappointing news, the volatility in TWLO stock appears to have stabilized. Since Nov. 1, shares are up nearly 3%. Although I wouldn't consider this the most convincing bullish signal, at least the bleeding has stopped. That tells me that the Street will give the company a fair shake.It's now up to management to make good on this opportunity. If they can tap into the unaddressed market and make conversions, we'll see Twilio stock fly. If not, you might want to look for another investment.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
