  • The Trulia IPO: Analysis Of Profits-Revenues Data 1 comment
    Sep 21, 2012 2:17 PM | about stocks: Z

    I have studied the profits and revenues data for Trulia, after its debut yesterday (Sep 20, 2012) as a public stock. A revenues estimate and a profits estimate for Trulia, for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2012 is provided in the article uploaded at scribd.com, see link given below,

    Using a high revenue growth rate (observed between 2009 and 2011), the revenue estimate is $52 .608 million.The linear profits-revenue relation, observed between 2008 and 2010, then permits an estimate of the profits (or losses).

    The profits-to-revenues conversion rate (slope of the profits-revenues graph) of about 50% will be required to boost the profits from the 2011 level (which were lower than for earlier years). The profits-revenues conversion rate currently is 34.4%.

    Note: The term "profits" is used generically, with losses being understood to be negative profits.


    P. S. I have no financial interests in Trulia.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

    Additional disclosure: Folks, this is my first Instablog here!
