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]

The company lost approximately 130,000 subscribers in the United States in Q2, and only gained 2.7 million global subscribers, after projecting it would add 5 million. CEO Reed Hastings blamed the stagnancy on the company’s price hikes, and a lack of original content to bring in new subscribers. The company instituted higher pricing plans in January, one of its biggest increases to date. Plan changes went into effect for both new and returning subscribers. As such, paid memberships in the United States were “essentially flat.” – Julia Alexander, The Verge » https://ift.tt/2XNYPKH
