  • Why Facebook Will Never Make Money With WhatsApp [View article]
    Appreciate the article but I don't understand the investment conclusion. Perhaps as a deep value investor the attractiveness is limited to you but for most this is the best social investment around.
    Step 1) Grow MAU
    Step 2) Network effect increases the relative value of each active user
    Step 3) Monetize the traffic without creating a heavy churn

    Seems like they are on pace. 60% Y/Y increase in Whatsapp MAU occurred despite the cannibilization from Messenger. Did they pay too much? Perhaps so. Is FB an attractive investment today. Absolutely.
    - Performance metrics indicate they can be trusted to monetize MAU.- Revenue and earnings growth > 30%- C16 PE is only modestly higher than growth rate.- The $19b purchase price is a sunk cost and largely irrelevant to the current investment thesis.

  • A New Purchase For The Durable Income Portfolio [View article]
    Nice article Brad. There are two very strong secular trends that should become strong tail winds for data center REITs. Biometrics for the expected explosion of genomics based diagnostics, and the Internet of Everything which predicts over 1 trillion sensors collecting data within several years.

    Any thoughts on which of the data centers are best positioned for this increased need for data warehousing? Seems like the analyst long term growth rates are largely ignoring it

    Useful #IoE presentation by $FSL from a couple years ago. Clear that they have been focused on this opportunity for some time. Freescale was purchased by $NXPI to pursue it
