Amazing Fast Grower, in the Asian Silicon Valley.
After a wildly successful IPO debut and subsequent tumble, Society Pass (SOPA) in our opinion is attractive on both a short and long-term basis. Street targets are over $5.00 per share. SOPA owns 8 portfolio companies food/beverage delivery (like Doordash: DASH), luxury goods (like Tapestry: TPR), telecoms, digital media, travel (like Expedia: EXPE) and merchant software. Doing due diligence now.
We attended a recent Wall Street investor conference and were blown away by the management presentation, of this acquirer and accelerator of Asian based ecommerce start-ups.
Shooting ducks (or is it fish) in a barrel, comes to mind. In our opinion it would be a mistake to get out early, if it achieves the Wall Street price targets. We would expect this to be one of our best performing ideas for the year. Though we would view this initially, as a 3-year play.
They’ll be presenting at the Sidoti Investor Conference in NY if you’re around (definitely worth attending). Society Pass (Nasdaq: SOPA) to Present at Sidoti Virtual Investor Conference 18-19 January 2023
Healthy looking balance sheet. Near $20 million in cash, last we checked! Market cap of only $28 million.
We are confident that corporate performance will come (earnings and revenues), and equally confident that speculators waiting for that ink to dry, would result in a huge opportunity mistake for them at these price levels. Conservative investors can wait, while aggressive investors should want to get in ahead of the ‘proof in the pudding. Just saying.
Society Pass Raises $26 Million @ $9.00 per Share.
Society Pass Incorporated (Nasdaq: SOPA), a leading Southeast Asian data-driven loyalty platform, today announced the pricing of its initial public offering of 2,888,889 shares of common stock at a price of US$9.00 per share. The shares have been approved for listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market and will trade under the ticker symbol “SOPA” beginning November 9, 2021.
It reached its all-time high of nearly $52 per share ($77 intraday), on Nov. 15, a week after the IPO up more than 470%. Will investors bought at $77 ever reach breakeven? Sorry, probably not…
On the other hand had an investor bought Netflix after the dot-com crash, those investors could have turned $1,000 into over half a million dollars in profit. Just saying.
According to a 2021 market research report by eMarketer, the market for ecommerce activity in Southeast Asia is expected to grow by 14.3% in 2021. The report estimated that ecommerce grew by a hefty 35.2% in 2020
