Roku’s Growth Trajectory Looks Solid, but Volatility Remains a Factor

The future looks bright for Roku, but it’s not a stock for the feint of heart. It will continue to be volatile, and if Amazon is able to beat expectations with its Fire TV, it’ll be rightly perceived that Roku could take longer to match its active user base. That wouldn’t be a disaster in any way, but it would slow its pace of growth and share price trajectory. – TipRanks via Yahoo Finance » https://ift.tt/2tjBcvN [photo: Top: Michael Whay / Bottom: TipRanks]

Roku TV adds brand partners plus a new ‘Roku TV Ready’ program

In addition, Roku today announced a new “Roku TV Ready” program that will allow consumer electronics companies to label themselves as such so consumers will know the products have been tested and certified to work with Roku TV. That means the devices will be easy to set up, and will include on-screen access to sound setting and volume control with one remote. – Sarah Perez, TechCrunch » https://ift.tt/2FwODdW

PlayStation 4 Is the Most Popular Pornhub Console

[As] for which gaming console gets the most Pornhub use, the PlayStation 4 is the big winner. 51.5 percent, just over half of all game console traffic, comes from PlayStation 4. The Xbox One follows with 34.7 percent. At first we just figured this reflected sheer numbers and tech realities. The PlayStation 4 has the advantage of course because there are just way more of them out there. And the similarly popular Nintendo Switch doesn’t have a web browser so it can’t access Pornhub at all. However, the extremely dead Sony handheld the PlayStation Vita somehow comes in third with 9.1 percent. So maybe there just is something special about porn and PlayStation. – Jordan Minor, Geek.com » https://ift.tt/2PiU3zi

Roku stock tanks after Morgan Stanley says massive rally means it’s time to sell

Swinburne downgraded Roku shares ROKU-13.05% to underweight from equal-weight on Monday, writing that the stock looks far too expensive, as they are now trading at a higher forward multiple of enterprise value to sales than the average fast-growth software company he’s tracking. At the same time, he expects gross margins to fall and gross-profit growth to temper. – Emily Bary, MarketWatch » https://ift.tt/2OFDr48

Roku is locking down TV’s until you give personal data.

Disclaimer: by ‘’Lock’’ I mean soft-lock. They do technically allow you to continue without adding the payment, but the options are hidden and only available if you look for them. Dark patterns are absolutely at work here, and unless you factory reset your TV it’s a freaking brick for the majority of people. Your TV is what I will call ‘’BlueBricked’’ – Usejournal.com » https://ift.tt/2ri9LRs

US advertisers will allocate nearly $7BN to connected TV in 2019

It forecasts that US advertisers will spend almost $7 billion in 2019 on connected TV ads, accounting for nearly 3% of US advertiser outlays. eMarketer forecasts that by 2023, advertisers will devote almost 5% of their paid media budgets to connected TV placements. That said, the PC-based ad market will likely be at the end of 2019 about three times the size of the connected TV ad market. In addition, by 2022, advertisers will spend more than half as much on connected TV as they do on PC-based digital ads. – Editor, Rapid TV News » https://ift.tt/32JkQbl [photo: eMarketer]
