Understanding 3rd Platform Companies by examining their business model, executive management and disruptive technology products can prove to be daunting task for those of us not in the IT business, or for those in IT but with limited time to perform research.
I have decided the share my valuable experience from over thirty years of management and investment market expertise specific to stocks in the IT sector. At Netfast we are talking to customers, equipment vendors and end-users of new technologies on a daily basis. This ensures we have the most up-to-date information about new stocks that are worth investing in rather than the same old news you receive from major financial media outlets.
I focus my investments and will focus our recommendations on companies where I understand their unfair competitive advantage and the underlying technologies that create those advantages. This has led my portfolio over the past ten years to beat the average hedge fund manager return of 22%. This is in addition to Apple and Amazon who have had 100%+ returns in my portfolio.
One great example is when I bought Palo Alto Networks (PANW) stock in Nov 2013 for $40 and it is now trading at $166, a whopping 315% increase in 2 years!
While I do not guarantee my recommendations will produce the same results for you, I hope that our research picks help shed some light on information technology stocks from companies offering unique disruptive technologies in the marketplace.
Netfast IT Stock Research – Our Research Pick for 11/4/2015 is…
RingCentral, Inc. (www.ringcentral.com) offers a Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) platform for the SMB market segment. RingCentral’s core offering is RingCentral Office which provides an easy-to-deploy solution for migrating phone and collaboration systems to the cloud with “out-of-the-box”integration to popular applications such as Office365 and Salesforce CRM. The past decade has seen many SMB migrate from traditional analog phones over to VOIP and Unified Communications (UC) with the traditional on-premises UC vendors such as Cisco and Avaya gaining much of the market share.
However many customers especially those in the SMB segment are concerned with the expense, complexity, licensing terms and hardware requirements of on-premises Unified Communications. This leaves the market open for RingCentral to replace these “traditional UC” environments with a cloud service that drives lower cost of implementation and lower recurring operating costs. RingCentral in the cloud also enables mobility and BYOD productivity gains in the work place by eliminating the need to maintain connection to the on-premises environment.
Because the UCaaS market offers significant advantage over entrenched vendors and is growing rapidly I expect growth potential from the company and the stock. As of today RNG is currently trading at $22 and has a market cap of $1.56B. I believe RNG can easily cross the $30 price target in 2016.
We recommend RNG as a strong-buy.
