Roku is a brand of hardware digital media players manufactured by American company Roku, Inc, offering access to streaming media content from online services. Subscribers around the world are able to stream movies and television shows. In the first quarter of 2022, Roku dominated the market in total streaming. Now, Roku has its eyes on its next target: Netflix. Over the past few years, Roku has gradually dominated more and more of the streaming market. If this trend continues, Roku will soon overtake Netflix in total subscribers.

Roku’s main selling point is its user-friendliness. Around the world, all customers know that Roku will always offer the best prices, entertainment, and service. In addition, Roku has poured tons of effort in to creating a more sustainable ad-streaming service, The Roku Channel. This strategy has paved new opportunities for Roku to build on and is a primary reason for their success.

Perhaps what makes Roku special is that still has a lot of room to grow; they have now tapped in to Ecommerce, digital payments, and shoppable ads. In other words, Roku has established itself as a market leader for the next twenty years. Though there are many new competitors such as Disney Plus, Hulu, and HBO, Roku’s unorthodox strategy will bring it the most success. That is why Roku is a great stock to buy now.

Next, Etsy defines themselves as an American e-commerce company focused on handmade or vintage items and craft supplies. Over the past few years, Etsy has established itself as a leader in the Ecommerce market. However, because the company is relatively new, there is still more success to come. In fact, it has distinguished itself from companies like Amazon because it focuses primarily on homemade, original products, an area that not many companies are willing to venture in to.

Like Roku, Etsy has built a huge consumer base from their great prices and user-friendliness. Unlike many titans in the Ecommerce industry, Etsy focuses on helping people in small markets, providing them with many opportunities to make revenue. Because they focus primarily on an area with virtually no competition, they are poised for success.

Etsy also allows sellers and buyers to form a lasting relationship. Because Etsy allows customers to personalize their products from sellers, they get original products that are found no where else. In fact, in a recent study, 87% of customers said that they could only get certain products on Etsy. This unorthodox strategy, like Roku, has allowed them to increase efficiency, revenue, and growth, to name a few.

Etsy is a company built for the future. Hop on the Etsy train and buy now before it’s too late.

Financial Term

The financial term for this blog is Bear Market, which occurs when the stock market drops 20% or more from its most recent high. Typically, investors buy stocks and bonds during a Bear Market. During this time, stock prices can’t dip any lower than they already have, so there is little to no risk to buy low. Bear Markets occur once every six months, but they are very unpredictable. Thus, it is not a good strategy to wait for a Bear Market before investing.
