ROBLOX – High Risk Metaverse Stock Analysus for Investing 2022 and Beyond

Companies / Metaverse Dec 28, 2021 – 09:00 PM GMT

As you know after dumping 80% of my AI stocks portfolio during the summer months I went on a high risk stocks buying spree, where ROBLOX was at the top of that list along with Western Digital and Corsair given the importance of GAMING, of which the ‘metaverse. is a subdivision of. For if it is not already clear, the metaverse’s are basically online gaming environments. UNFORTUNATELY, to date I have bought NO ROBLOX, for the reason that I deem the stock to be a lot higher risk than either Corsair or WDC given that it is along way from making any profits. The stock has soared to $125 on the back of Facebook’s metaverse announcement and improving financials, though still makes a loss. The stock is trading on an eye watering Market cap of $64bn! That’s on annual sales of $1.6 billion.

However the key metric to focus on is the number of monthly users where I am not seeing much growth during the past 3 quarters, though it looks like Roblox tends to get a spike in new users in the final quarter of the year, so Q4 should see a jump in paying users.

Roblox reported losses of $134 million for the 9 months to Sept 30th on sales of $1.6 billion. However hidden away in their accounts is the fact Roblox are rampant stock printers, the management awarded themselves $222 million in shares! Against $30 million for the same period last year. Whilst share holders were diluted to the tune of 460 million new shares. There’s nothing much appealing to an investor in the financials which explains why I have yet to buy.

What stands out from the stock chart is –

a. Breakout to new highs above $104.

b. There is a large gap on the chart between $83 and $93 and gaps tend to eventually get filled.

c. Strong Support in the zone of $67 to $80.

The bottom line is Roblox is definitely a high risk stock, they are printing a lot of new shares, so a lot of shareholder dilution is going on at the moment, and likely for some years to come which means there should be plenty of opportunities to buy Roblox in the future for all it takes is one earnings miss and Roblox will be back to well below $100. So I remain in no rush to buy Roblox and definitely not anywhere near the current price of $124. Instead I would seek to buy a small stake on a retracement back to well below $100, perhaps to fill the gap down to at least $80, and likely a deeper retracement than that. My existing buying level for Roblox is $65 which I am now raising to $80 which is the approx price I will be seeking to gain first exposure to Roblox. Though remember folks THIS IS a HIGH RISK STOCK! It could both DOUBLE and HALF with ease.
