In today’s video I watch Skillz‘s (NYSE: SKLZ) recent movements in stock prices and why long-term investors should ignore volatility.
Three reasons why long-term Skillz investors should ignore the noise:
- International expansion: Skillz is on track to launch in India later this year. Management estimates that the expansion will increase its addressable market by 65%. At present, international turnover represents less than 10% of Skillz turnover.
- Expansion to other markets: Skillz is exploring opportunities beyond gaming that could benefit the competitive platform, such as fitness and education.
- Careful direction from management: The forecast released by Skillz for the first quarter of 2021 shows growth of 84% year-over-year and 18% quarter-over-quarter. These forecasts do not take into account the revenue generated by potential new games, which can generate a considerable increase in future earnings reports.
Investors should note that Skillz will be a very volatile security and should be prepared for huge price fluctuations.
