About a 50% growth rate. Hugely profitable. Gross margins and net margins are extremely high. Other than Google (GOOGL-Q), this company has really got mobile and advertising in a tremendous way, and as time goes on, both Google and Facebook are going to continue to grow their advertising revenues. They are just now beginning to monetize Instagram. Investors are completely underestimating how attractive the Instagram model is going to be for corporations to advertise their products.

(Covered Calls. He is playing the last half of the year by taking some option premiums in with he expects that these 3 Top Picks will hold their own or rise. Yield on the total return is pretty attractive. Thinks we could be in a flat market until the end of the year.) The shares are at around $95 and you are selling a $100 Call. This is a little more volatile so you are getting a higher premium. There are no dividends. If it closes above $100 in January, it gives you better than 11%. If it stays the same, your return is over 5%. This is taxed as a capital gain in Canada.

They have certainly disrupted a lot of the industry on the ability to advertise. The problem for her is the valuation, which is quite rich. You are paying a lot today for their ability to monetize the usage. These are not the types of bets that she likes to make.

After the IPO it was out of favour as people were concerned about the transition from desktop to mobile, and how they were going to handle it. They have done an amazing job. Average smart phone users are on the site about 45 minutes of daily use. He likes the stock. The challenge has been that it is expensive, but it has grown into that number. Trading around 30-35 times next year’s earnings, and if you are going to grow 40%, that is fairly reasonable.

The numbers are great and the margins are there. This is a super story. He loves the long-term approach they are taking. They are taking their time. Have hit all of their metrics so far. There is a lot of news coming on it now where that can be a real disruption as to where people get their news. Too richly valued for him.

This now has all the ducks in a row and is really ready to deliver. It is a bit of a reach on a PE basis, but when you look at who is going to do well in the future, this one stands out. This is a sector that he thinks is going to grow so well that you have to have some of it in your portfolio. 73% of revenues come from mobile sources.

Advertising is a huge market and what we are seeing is a massive shift. 20 years ago print was the big ad market. This company is one of the beneficiaries on that shift. He is still on the fence on this. He would like to see more out of them before investing. A really expensive stock, so he would wait for a pullback before getting involved.

Not a deep value stock, but he has to admire companies that have been able to deliver great growth, evolve their business model in a very short period of time and be able to figure out what advertisers and consumers are looking for and monetize that.

Dropped about 10% off its highs. This is in the face of some of their competitors reporting results that have largely been panned by the market. This company’s results were quite good. The opportunity on this company is immense. There is a lot of runway here. A lot of the 10% fall back is market related. A little bit of nervousness because of their peer group. Longer-term he feels this is a stock that is going to do quite well.
