Not only did this handily exceed a consensus analyst estimate for third-quarter revenue of $110 million, but it also marked a significant acceleration compared to Roku's 23% year-over-year revenue growth in the first half of the year. For perspective, the stock closed at $23.50 on its first day of trading September 28, a strong debut that was followed by six weeks of largely downward movement. Five equities research analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and two have given a buy rating to the company.
This is really the best of both worlds for Roku, since it earns licensing revenue while also adding active accounts. The company reported ($0.10) earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, topping the consensus estimate of ($1.68) by $1.58.
Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein commends the company for a "strong quarter out of the gate" and opts to stay on the sidelines on principle of "valuation", reiterating a Perform rating on ROKU without listing a price target.
