A shakeout is a situation in which many investors exit their positions in a stock or market segment at the same time, often at a loss. A shakeout is usually caused uncertainty or recent bad news circulating around a particular security or industry. Shakeouts can be quite variable in duration, but they are usually sharp in terms of the amount lost from recent highs.
Investment is when a security or an asset is purchased with an intention of holding it for a long term period with a view that it will gradually increase in value over that period and speculation can be considered a more risk based transaction where the sole purpose is to make profit out of that transaction which is generally a short term and often a single transaction.
FVRR打破了國際疆界，讓服務可量化交易。尤其在工作全球化、碎片化、Work from home的職場變革潮流帶動下，完全激發了這個潛力市場。我認為這個商業模式有兩個特點，1)群聚效應(network effect)，越來越多的賣家，可提供買家更多的選擇，並增加賣場熱絡，又導致更多賣家的加入，造成良性循環。2)全球市場資源整合(globalization)，與人力網站/電商網站不同，FVRR沒有地區性限制。過去發達國家要到發展中國家建設工廠，以購買便宜的勞動力。而現在服務產業透過網路，也能買到全球便宜的”服務業”能力。FVRR就像是服務業的”阿里巴巴”網站。
Chegg的獲利能力相當不錯，其行銷費用僅佔10%與其他SaaS相比非常的低。根據Chegg的調查，大學生知道Chegg的比例高達87%。所以宣傳上透過Word of mouth的比例應該相當高。但研發開銷高達$40M(30%)倒是比較出乎意外，CRWD約50M，DDOG約46M。但我預估CHGG的研發偏屬於內容製作，未來不會與營收等幅成長，反而會出現研發開銷比例穩定下降。所以未來的獲利可能會越來越好。
(Price/(Sales x GM)) / Growth = 0.36 在SaaS群組中相對便宜，但因為其商業模式的Dollar-Based Net Expansion Rate比較低，其市場估值會比較低。
Price / Sale : 若以營收年成長率差不多的企業來比較，ROKU、FSLY，Chegg的P/S還相對較低，到目前為止仍然保持在20以下。
在10月初，許多雲端股已經上漲超越前高，換句話說，雲端股目前的投資風險比9月下跌前還高，如果錯過9月初的低點買入，那現在股價的風險報酬比普遍不佳，難有風報比1:3的機會。不追高是原則，只能buy the dip，選擇拉回月線或小時線RSI低於30買入，謹慎做多。而另外一種選擇就是買入具”營運轉機”題材，股價還相對低的個股。例如AYX在此波疫情影響下股價大幅回落43%到$105附近，最近提前公布Q3預估營收將回升，股價就大漲28%。
National Restaurant Association 公佈自3月中至7月中，有超過10萬家餐廳倒閉。Full Service餐廳是受到疫情影響的重災區。但更正確地來說，飲食並不會減少，只是改變了地點，而Full Service餐廳紛紛進行了線上點餐、取餐、裁員等措施來因應。根據Crunchtime所做的調查，美國整體餐廳業的營收已經恢復到疫情前的74%。而許多小餐廳的倒閉讓餐飲連鎖店的營收表現比想像中恢復得更快。

七月份持股在沒有基本面消息情況下，買賣變少了一些。持有的股票以選股模板的前10名為主，另外包含有落後補漲機會的WORK, ROKU, SQ, GH。策略是選擇用RSI短線(1小時線)跌破30的時候買入，算是Buy the dip策略。而個股大漲會停利。WCLD用來調節持股比例，當個股因為停利或停損賣出後，為了保持一定的投資比例，會買入WCLD。本月獲利貢獻最多的股票是LVGO(4.55%)、TWLO(2%)、WCLD(1.34%)。我覺得持有WCLD的方式來減低波動率是很好的選擇。讓我可以減少進出個股，更專心等待個股的買入/賣出機會。
身為一個交易者，我們深知股票下跌的風險，並且對於經濟、財報的負面消息相當敏感，因為SaaS股票普遍有高BETA，下跌時會比大盤兇猛。所以交易上有設定停利、停損等機制。而如果我們要致力於獲取雲端股的全部上漲潛力，還得留意”上漲風險”。上漲風險就是當股價上漲而手中卻無持股。這一年的交易我發現常常面對是否該追價、是否該全額投資此類的問題。而原因就是低估了飆股的上漲很快、容易超漲、一旦第一時間沒有買入，就會很難說服自己高價買入。而後來就算追買也不敢用100%資金買入。所以知名的討論區投資者Saul倡議的Buy and Hold就是為了賺入所有的上漲空間，所以放棄time the market。同時也代表要承受所有的下檔風險。2018年底與2019年9月分別出現了25%左右的修正。當然這需要訓練自己的強大心理抗壓能力，並不適合所有投資人，但卻是這波產業黃金期”確定”可以吃到全部漲幅的辦法之一。

Etsy營收年成長率34.5%，並且每季略為減速。2019年中併購Reverb，才又將營收成長拉上接近40%。目前已經穩定獲利。Rule of 40每一季都是40以上。算是穩定度高的公司。這次受到疫情影響提供了相當不錯的客戶增量與營收增加，對於知名度的推廣有加速提升。但因為客戶多為一次性消費的緣故，疫情過後應該會有明顯的成長趨緩。目前手上仍有898M現金，公司的營收增長計畫為併購其他公司。
最新一季財報 2020 Q1 Summary:
Total revenue was $228.1 million for the first quarter of 2020, up 34.7% year-over-year. 超出市場預期4.27%
Gross profit for the first quarter of 2020 was $145.6 million, up 24.8% year-over-year, and gross margin was 63.9%, down 500 basis points compared with 68.9% in the first quarter of 2019. The contraction in gross margin was primarily driven by amortization related to our recent acquisition of Reverb which is non-cash, and our consolidated ad platform, Etsy Ads, which drives revenue growth but carries an equal offset in cost of revenue.
Total operating expenses were $120.3 million in the first quarter of 2020, up 41.4% year-over-year, and represented 52.7% of revenue.
Net income for the first quarter of 2020 was $12.5 million, with diluted earnings per share of $0.10. Net income was primarily impacted by foreign exchange losses of $9.3 million or $0.08 loss per share.
Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2020 was $55.1 million and grew 10.4% year-over-year. NonGAAP Adjusted EBITDA margin (i.e., non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue) was 24.1% in the first quarter of 2020, down 530 basis points year-over-year. Adjusted EBITDA performance was driven primarily by yearover-year revenue growth.
Cash, cash equivalents, short- and long-term investments were $898.1 million as of March 31, 2020. In January 2020, Etsy repurchased an aggregate of approximately $25.0 million, or 543,106 shares of its common stock. However, in light of the macroeconomic situation related to COVID-19, our Board of Directors has decided to temporarily pause share repurchases.
