Should you invest in Match Group Inc MTCH Tinder

 

Company: An American internet company that owns and operates more than over 45 brands (at October, 2016), including Match, OkCupid, Tinder, Meetic, Twoo, PlentyofFish, OurTime, BlackPeopleMeet and FriendScount24, and etc. It also operates The Princeton Review, which provides a variety of test preparation, tutoring and college counseling services.

 

(From finance.yahoo.com)

 

(annual)

(quarterly)

 

Sinced Match Group Inc (MTCH) IPOed almost a year ago (November, 2015), the stock has seen it’s up and down.  It came out of the gate at around $15/share, then it went down to as low as $9.30 during February, 2016, the big market pullback of this year.  Now it stands at around $19.30 as of October 24, 2016.  

 

Let’s first look at the numbers:

Market Cap:4.86B

Trailing P/E:40.67

Forward P/E:20.77

Revenue:1.12B

Quarterly Revenue Growth:21%

Quarterly Earning Growth: 46.1%

Profit Margin:19.28%

Total Debt:1.21B

Current Ratio: 0.91

 

We like the balance book as of now.  Even the PE is sort of high, we see the the growth is also high due to the popularity of its Trump brand: Tinder.  Tinder was an in-house development by InterActiveCorp (Ticker: IAC), the parent company of Match Group Inc. Tinder was founded in 2013 and since then it has been on a tear in the online dating world.  Millions of people uses it everyday, swiping left/right has been inducted into the modern slang among young people.  

 

Risks:

  • It uses Facebook as the its backbone for building profiles and connections among users.  So any violation of Facebook (Ticker: FB) might endangers its operation.

  • Even though it’s a popular app for the past few years, there might be another app that can come along and take its place.  Tinder is actually taking some of the potential customers from its other apps and desktop dating sites.  We have no problem with this since it’s sort of like keeping the profit in the family, sort of like Apple Inc (Ticker: AAPL) when it came out with Iphone that not only revolutionalized the phone company but also took a piece of its Ipod business.

  • The service it provides have fluctuation in demands, and once the user find his/her love, this usually equates to the app losing a customer.  

 

Even though this investment has its risks, we still feel it’s a good investment at this price point.  As of right now, there’s not a competitor that’s close to compete with Tinder.  Also Tinder has started to monetize the traffic with advertisement and paid subscription, as well as other features to retain existing customers and getting new customers.  We also like the The Princeton Review which provides steady cash flow to the overall business of Match Group Inc.

 

Again, with any investment, it’s important to do your own homework and research.  We recommend anyone interested to read MTCH quarterly and annual reports to get a better idea whether it’s a good investment.  Happy Investing!
