Q4 Earnings Analysis for Shopify, Roku, Fiverr And Palantir

In my latest Forbes article, I cover the 2020 Q4 earnings for Shopify, Roku, Fiverr and Palantir. More importantly, we explain why tech stocks have been selling off recently despite some healthy earnings reports.

We discuss key points in the earnings reports from leading e-commerce software company Shopify (NYSE:SHOP), a company that’s not sitting stagnant by any means. We review Shopify’s product road map and how the company continually innovates to maintain its lead. The company grew revenue 94% YoY to $978M, topping consensus estimates by $64M (7%). Adjusted EPS of $1.58 beat estimates by $0.37.

We also discuss Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) and why CEO Anthony Wood does not believe his industry has seen a pull forward from COVID-19 but rather a structural shift that benefits AVOD and programmatic CTV ads long term. In my previous analysis on Forbes, I had pointed out that Roku’s true market is pay-TV advertisers (rather than cord cutters). This was echoed on the recent call (nearly verbatim). Management also explained why Peacock and HBO are not truly competitors but rather increase the pool of customers for Roku.

Moreover, driven by strong advertiser demand, Roku beat on revenue and earnings when it announced Q4 results Feb. 18 with 58% growth year-over-year and guided for 51% growth for Q1 2021.

Fiverr (NYSE:FVRR) is a stock that has seen phenomenal gains of more than 800%. We review this company’s growth potential as a gig economy leader with the recent launch of its subscription service. The online freelance marketplace platform beat on revenue and earnings as it closed out a breakthrough quarter in the company’s history.

Lastly, we talk about Palantir (NYSE:PLTR). The company is guiding for 30% growth over the next five years which didn’t match its valuation going into earnings. Under the hood, the commercial accounts growth was a paltry 4% although perhaps the recent partnership with IBM (NYSE:IBM) will help strengthen the commercial customer base.

Palantir also announced Q4 results Feb. 16. Revenue grew 40% YoY to $322M, beating consensus estimates by $21.02M. Net loss of ($0.08) per share missed estimates of ($0.02), according to Bloomberg, despite the net loss improving from ($0.29) per share for the same period last year.
