April 18th, 2019 · No Comments

Rising traffic acquisition costs and macro headwinds have led to stagnation. But given that half the market cap is in cash and short-term investments, the shares are not expensive.

April 17th, 2019 · No Comments

SHU Portfolio: Why We Cooled On Pareteum

April 17th, 2019 · No Comments

The company is going gangbusters and in fact the whole sector is rapidly growing. The two acquisitions the company executed recently seem a good fit.

Cloudera Is Dirt Cheap

April 14th, 2019 · No Comments

The shares of Cloudera have been stuck in a rut for quite some time, and the initial negative effects of the merger with Hortonworks have compounded this. This is because, in the short-run, negative effects outweigh the positive ones, but as these effects are one-offs, this will change. We think the shares are really too […]

The company is well established in a growing market with a sensible three-pronged growth strategy that delivers substantial revenue growth.
