I was watching stock market today. Pearson plc (PSON) got beaten up quite badly. Just for sake of curiosity i drilled down to recommendations by different analysts to see if they were able to predict today announced problems.
I didn’t have time to write during #IPO of #Alibaba, but I had positive feelings about this one due to its dominant market position in China. First quarterly report seem to be quite impressive as expected. Although few questions remain open.
I have been earlier following the cloud war between #amazon, #microsoft and #google. Things would be easier to observe, if these would be pure cloud providers, but most of their business is else where. The question that comes to my mind is, if that is sustainable and is there enough focus?
Just realized it has been quite silent around #Jolla lately. What is happening in the silence?
As discussed before IPO I had some doubts about sustainability of the valuation level of this interesting stock. Later browsing through the revenue development I was curious to see what happens after Q1. Now the results are out.
Big players seem to have realized that there is space for price competition. Infrastructure cost is naturally dropping, maybe even faster than earlier estimated due to new innovative ways to utilize it more efficiently.
Now valuation is getting closer to what could be expected. Depending of the speed of erosion of revenues I would imagine to be interested in this stock around $16-17. This would naturally be just short term stake for this year.
Around end of Q2 there should be some indications if the new game is getting attention of consumers or not. Farm Hero Saga seem quite similar to Candy Crush Saga, but why not, maybe recycling works here as earlier concept did.
Interesting week ahead. Maybe buyers will find suitable level for this interesting stock during coming week. Now it seem to be closing around $18, which is 2.22% drop from opening day. Total loss so far 19.6%.
Few days ago I was little too rough on estimating “fair” value of King. I gave range of 20-40% over valued in that previous post. First day’s drop was -16% for IPO valuation. Following up closely how second day opens up.

Next interesting IPO for the market that i observe will be King. While trying to figure out where the valuation should be, we could bench mark it to resent partial private acquisition of an other game producer Supercell.
Now it has finally happened: someones fridge participated into massive email spam attack!
