This Could Be Like Buying Facebook in 2012
By: Sean O'Reilly
Everyone laughed when Facebook held its IPO in May 2012.
In fact, the stock fell by over 50% in the months that followed. It traded as low as $18 a share by August 2012.
But then something happened.
Facebook figured out how to make money on ads -- and it hasn’t looked back since.
Shares are up over 800% since their post-IPO low. And last quarter the company that Mark Zuckerberg started in his dorm room made $4.7 billion in profits – 79% more money than it made a year before.
Success like Facebook’s is why I’m so excited. Because I may have found out about the next best thing.
You see, I just heard about a stock that has also figured out ads – and it's not limited to a single social network.
This stock figured out how to sell ads across the entire internet.
This company IPO'd only a year ago, so there's still plenty of time to get in.
And some of the biggest names in advertising are paying up to get in on the action.
They can see the writing on the wall. Through some unique partnerships, this stock’s management team is planning to collect more data for targeted ads than Facebook!
Think about it.
Facebook has a ton of data. But what if a company could do what Facebook has done for targeted ads on its social network across THE ENTIRE INTERNET?
Advertisers spent $652 billion last year, making this company’s market-potential huge. Even Facebook’s share of this enormous pie was just 4.2%.
The results have already been explosive:
- Shares are up 78% since its IPO and could be just getting started.
- Profits almost tripled.
- Revenues in its latest quarter surged 50% year over year.
- Customer retention remained over 95% for the 15th straight quarter.
