Adding to UBER
By the time you read this I will have added 847 shares at $36.85/share to our existing position in UBER. See the portfolio for details. The Stay Invested portfolio is now holding a full position in Uber.
I'm taking advantage of the fact that UBER is at its 52-week lows. By itself that's not a reason to buy any stock but with the expectation that earnings will grow 39% next year, revenues will grow about 47%, and gross margins remain high at around 40% I like the setup. I also like that UBER trades at just under 5 times sales. Compared to many other growth companies trading at 30 and 40 times sales, UBER is a bargain growth company for investors who can wait. Uber is not an investment for a quick return, traders can stay away. Uber is a long-term investment in the future of mobility and delivery services.
My biggest concern with UBER isn't all the political noise, it's the debt. The company has about $11.25B in debt and only $6.5B in cash. With only $354M in free cash flow, and negative operating cash flow, I have to force myself to look at the rest of the business objectively.
