In said letter, Greenhaven Road Capital highlighted a few stocks and Digital Turbine Inc. (NASDAQ:APPS) is one of them. Digital Turbine Inc. (NASDAQ: APPS) is a software company. Year-to-date, Digital Turbine Inc. (NASDAQ:APPS) stock has gained 380.7% and on Nov. 3 had a closing price of $34.27. Here is what Greenhaven Road Capital said:
“Digital Turbine (APPS) – In round numbers, Digital Turbine’s stock price nearly tripled during the quarter. What happened ? allow app downloads. Digital Turbine sits between major carriers, like Verizon and AT&T, and companies, like Netflix and Amazon, that want their apps preinstalled on Android phones. With 6,000 apps added to the Android platform every day, the demand for the limited number of app slots has only increased. Fortunately for Digital Turbine, device counts and revenue per device continue to improve, which has helped drive the stock price higher. However, I think the most important factor was that earlier this year the company acquired Mobile Posse, which provides “media and advertising solutions for carriers and OEM partners while delivering richer content and more relevant to end users”. This is content activity that generates substantial recurring revenue over the life of the phone and is not as tied to new phone activations/sales as historical app install activity. The recurring revenue nature of Mobile Posse is attractive, as is the potential for Mobile Posse to sell products into Digital Turbine’s existing base and vice versa. I think it remains a very well-positioned business with the potential for cross-selling to produce incremental increases in growth if successful.
