JPM started coverage of ROKU with an overweight rating and price target of $475. There's upside here, but ROKU now trades at 20x sales, which is expensive in this sector. If you've made money, then take some profits.

Filed a strong quarter last Thursday with strong sales and profits. They added 2.9 million users, easily beating estimates with 20% higher revenues per viewer YOY. They offered strong guidance over the holiday season. Sold off badly today, but it's still up 10% in the last 6 sessions. Buy gradually into weakness. Cord-cutting is a powerful, long-term trend that Covid isn't stopping. Covid may drive a strong Christmas for them.

He does not own this as it is pretty expensive here. It is a $17 billion market cap, but only makes $1 billion per year. They are on the hardware side of video streaming services. They are benefiting from the increase in content that is being streamed, especially Disney. Consumers are demanding quality content and this will benefit.

Take out target? Any company buying them would have to pay a hefty price. It sells video streaming hardware to the tv makers. It plunged 15% on Monday when an analyst put them at under-weight. It has tremendous volatility. It is up over 300% so far this year. He holds a third of his target position. His price target is $170.

He follows the streaming space closely. Roku is unique because it has several thousand apps connected to it--it's a conduit, unlike, say, Netflix. Roku is attractive not for conservative investors.

He thinks they got hit by the news of Apple TV's aggressive price offering. They are a strong player, but they are competing against the giants in the space (Amazon, Google, Apple, etc.), who can spend them into oblivion. They will not win a price war against these ones. Stay away.

No one expected Apple+ to cost $5/month. Roku is an open platform, not tied to a particular service; they're in a weird place as this streaming battle continues. This will continue to fall.

They have had phenomenal growth. They are a streaming company that installs the hardware in TVs and they have a set top box. They have first mover advantage. Ultimately, if you want streaming you can get it without ROKU-Q so he wonders what the endgame is.
