He once owned it and sold it too soon. That was a mistake. They have a lot of cash, a big user base, and online gambling now is a huge opportunity. Gambling may not spread as quickly as some expect, but more states are legalizing sports gambling.

He would not short this because there is an ongoing big run up in anything associated with sports gambling and it looks as though the US will legalize that. Market cap is $100 million which would be easy to buy. He expects this to be acquired--no longer publicly traded--within a year, probably at a higher price.

The stock popped significantly after the approval of online sports betting in the US. It then pulled back a little and has advanced again. There is a lot of optimism for the future of this stock. However, the two analysts that cover the company expect either break even or loss of a penny per share at year end in August 2019. Thus, even though the company is worth more than it was a few months ago, its P/E ratio is extremely high and the actual value of the company is uncertain. (Analysts’ price target is $0.52)

This is the second-leading app in sports news and data in North America. The US Supreme Court effectively legalized sports betting today, causing a spike in theScore’s price. It has over 4 million unique mobile users but a market cap of only $75 million. The Stars Group, which has a market cap of $10 billion, was to heavily expand sports betting in the US and could easily tuck in theScore as its news feed. He expects this company to be sold for a much higher price. (Analysts’ price target is 0.30$)

He likes what has been happening with the company, but is disappointed with the share price. They were going to get into daily fantasy betting, he says, and that had given the company a bump up in value. He has been buying it back lately on weakness and believes the users of the sports content will stick with the company as customers. He thinks this makes the company an excellent take-over target.

As the growth slowed in the adoption of the app, the stock declined. However, the company still has plenty of cash and they are getting a big tax refund. Thinks they are going to be “break even” in the 3rd quarter this year. They’ve taken their user base of about 11 million people or so, and are starting to break into some really larger advertising accounts. Revenue growth has been quite nice, and he sees that continuing. They also have a good relation with Facebook (FB-Q) where they get a lot of traffic. Sees more upside than downside.

This has gone through some business transformations over the last couple of years. It is now basically mobile apps and provides live scores to fans. What got the stock going about a year ago was fantasy sports, which was all the rage. Recently there were some legal issues in the US as to whether it is gambling or not, and will take a little while to sort out, and why the stock checked back. However, they still have the original business providing sport updates to fans, essentially an advertising business. They also are into E-Sports where people get together and have tournaments on video games etc. A solid business. If you are going to own this, you should have a longer-term point of view.

Just bought some last week. Likes the company and really likes the management team. Have big plans in all their areas whether it is E sports or fantasy gaming, where they can cross sell incrementally into these new platforms. Growth has slowed, but advertising has actually picked up as they have gotten more and more scale. Now they are going to be able to cross sell the fantasy sports and E sports to their users of the Score Sports app, which is roughly 11 million people. Still thinks there is tremendous upside. Thinks there will be upside in the next 6 weeks and then could go back to $.45-$.50, but longer-term, north of $1, is very reachable.
