A Big Roku Bull Scales the Stock’s Price Target Way Back
barrons.com
Needham’s Laura Martin warned that U.S.-China trade tensions could cut into growth if fewer U.S. consumers buy Roku-powered televisions made in China.

Her new price target takes into account lower user additions and the absence of some one-time licensing revenue recorded this year, but also thinning margins. The expectation that investors will move away from companies that are unprofitable on an earnings per share basis was another factor. (Wall Street’s consensus estimate for next year is a loss of 17 cents per share.)

Martin also wrote recently about the company’s vulnerability to competition from big tech companies, maintaining that companies like Amazon.com (AMZN), Alphabet’s (GOOGL) Google, and Apple (AAPL) are more likely to acquire Roku than displace it.

As of right now , Roku is sitting at ~$41 (up roughly 24%).

Roku is still well off its highs. The buying opportunity remains, IMO.

You can now control your Roku with an Amazon Echo
theverge.com
After announcing support for Google Assistant last fall, Roku is today doing the same for Amazon's Alexa voice assistant. After installing the new Roku skill, you'll be able to control the company's streaming devices and Roku TVs with voice commands like “Alexa, open Hulu on Roku.”

You can launch apps, pause content, or search for something to watch with your voice. Roku TV owners can turn their TV on or off, adjust the volume, or change inputs using Alexa as well. You'll still need to mention “Roku” in each voice command instead of just “the TV,” however. If you've got an antenna hooked up to your Roku TV, you can also tune to specific channels.

Roku pulled back today on analyst warnings of competitive threats from Amazon and Apple.

I am very much reminded of the pullback Netflix saw in 2011 when analysts said the exact same thing.

Netflix fell from 72 all the way down to 7 based upon all that FUD at the time.

But less than a year later NFLX was back at 40 and two years later at 70. Netflix closed today at 368.

IMO ROKU is baby high flier, and this current FUD and pullback represents an outstanding opportunity to get in near the start of it's ascent.
