Can These Tech Stocks Deliver Profit?

Joe Samuel

In today’s world, there may be one thing may be perceived as a higher value than money, and that is convenience.  Over the past decade, we have seen a significant shift in consumer behavior, mainly due to technological advances, towards an on-demand consumer model.  This shift emerged with the start of e-commerce, beginning with the ability to order goods online to be delivered and it has now evolved to an era where one can order nearly anything without even getting out of bed.

Companies like Amazon (AMZN) and Netflix (NFLX) were at the forefront of this shift and their success could be largely due to seeing the value in providing consumers with convivence early on. 

But now, this on-demand industry is rapidly replacing traditional business models by providing consumers what they want, where they want and when they want.  The newest part of this model that has emerged is food delivery, and it may just satisfy an investors appetite.

Who’s Focusing On Delivering Profit For Investors?

ParcelPal Technology Inc. (PTNYF) (PKG) is a Canadian technology-driven logistics company purposed with connecting consumers to the goods they love through partner businesses, from food to clothes to even cannabis, all within an hour.  The company recently achieved a major milestone of completing over 2 million deliveries and announced its plans for further expansion throughout Canada and into the U.S.

Notably, ParcelPal has secured a work order contract with Amazon to fulfill package delivery on behalf of Amazon in 3 western Canadian markets and Evert, Washington.  The company has also entered key verticals with businesses in both alcohol and cannabis. ParcelPal has inked two delivery agreements with two Canadian cannabis companies, in which one cannabis delivery initiative went live mid-April.

ParcelPal will be hosting an investor update conference call on May 1st to review recent progress and that will be releasing its quarterly financial statements for Q4 FY2018 by April 30, 2019.

GrubHub (GRUB) is a leading online and mobile food-ordering and delivery marketplace that works with over 105,000 restaurant partners throughout the US. and London.  The company recently annouced its financial results for Q1 2019 which followed the momentum seen in 2018.  GrubHub reported revenues of $324 million, a 39% year-over-year increase Q1 2018’s $233 million, while gross food sales grew 21% to $1.5 billion year-over-year, up from $1.2 billion the year prior.

“We are extremely proud of our entire team for another fantastic quarter of execution – record new diner growth, thousands of new quality restaurants added to our platform and a sixth consecutive quarter of organic order acceleration.

Even with our recent ramp in growth investments, adjusted EBITDA per order improved during the quarter, underscoring our ability to grow in a long-term sustainable manner,” said Grubhub Founder and CEO Matt Maloney.

Yum! Brands Inc. (YUM) is the parent company of well-known restaurant chains such as KFC, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell.  The company entered the delivery space in late 2017 following its U.S. partnership with Grubhub for pickup and delivery service.  In this deal, Yum Brands also purchased $200 million of Grubhub’s common stock, giving it a not only a large vested interest in the company but also a seat on GrubHub’s board of directors.

“We are committed to making our iconic brands easier to access through online ordering for pickup and delivery, and aggressively pursuing delivery as a strategic global growth opportunity, with nearly half of our 45,000 restaurants already offering it today,” said Greg Creed, CEO, Yum! Brands, Inc at the time of the press release.

“We’re pleased to secure this partnership with Grubhub in order to drive incremental, profitable growth for our U.S. franchisees over the long term. Our partnership and strategic investment in Grubhub demonstrate our laser-like focus on two of our growth drivers: Distinctive, Relevant & Easy Brands and Unmatched Franchise Operating Capability.”

And The Usual Suspects?

Domino’s Pizza (DPZ) is the largest pizza company in the world based on retail sales, with a significant business in both delivery and carryout pizza. Through the company’s platform, Domino’s Anywhere, consumers have the convenience to order pizza through options such as Google Home, Amazon’s Alexa and Facebook Messenger. 

Last year, Dominos launched its Hotspot program that gave consumers access to have their orders delivered to hundreds of thousands of public areas as well and when the company reported earnings for that quarter revenues increased 25.8% to $161.2 million.

Most recently, a piloting a test of GPS driver tracking began in 27 corporate-owned stores throughout Phoenix, Arizona expected to extend into later markets this spring.  This new initiative allows consumers to track their order and driver and receive an estimated delivery time as well as text notifications.

McDonald’s (MCD) is the world’s leading global foodservice retailer with around 38,000 locations in over 100 countries.  Although McDonald’s technically doesn’t deliver, the fast food company teamed up with UberEats in the U.S. 2017, after trials in the Middle East and Asia, and now offers delivery through this exclusive partnership in over 8,000 locations worldwide.

McDonald’s reported Q1 2019 earnings of $1.78 per share in the on revenue of $4.956 billion versus expectations of $1.77 per share and $4.93 billion. Global comparable sales were 5.4 percent higher in the quarter, including a 4.5 percent increase in the U.S. market. 

The burger giant’s efforts to expand its delivery network with Uber Eats has been slower in the U.S than other markets, however that delivery checks were 1.5 to 2 times the size of an in-store check and that delivery was a $3 billion business globally for the company.

Blackberry Stock Price Corrects 23% In A Month, A Value Buy?

Jon Phillip



blackberry stock price

There was a time when BlackBerry Limited (BB) used to be one of the leaders of the telecommunication industry by virtue of its smartphones. However, the company’s glory days are well in the past and the stock declined by more than 15% recently after it released its results for Q1 2019. The stock is now trading less than $8 but at the same time, it is important to note that the company has managed to deliver as far as its top-line figures are concerned.

Poor Earnings Lower Blackberry Stock Price

The software and services division is now the company’s most important division. It has emerged as the biggest revenue generator for the Canadian company. Overall sales for Blackberry rose 16% year over year in the latest reported quarter.

However, in the software and services, it was a far more pleasing picture. Its GAAP revenues rose 27% year over year. The company seems to be on the right track in terms of its plan to turn around. But the market doesn’t seem to take a fancy to it. The reasons behind this might have something to do with allegations made by certain parties.

They say that the company uses non-GAAP methods to report earnings. If there is any kind of accounting cloud over a company, growth may be far away.

Where Does This Leave Blackberry Stock Price?

However, Blackberry has been quick to defend itself against these allegations. Financial disclosures of the company are fully SEC compliant. It remains to be seen whether the SEC takes an interest in the matter.

This problem has been the biggest reason behind the underperformance of Blackberry stock price. That’s despite the company’s decent performance. The acquisition of machine learning company Cyclane is also a positive development. But it remains to be seen how it affects Blackberry’s future growth.

Uber Technologies (UBER) Stock Price Hits $45 Mark Again; Are Delivery Stocks Set To Fly?

A. Lawrence



Uber Technologies (UBER) stock price hit its IPO level of $45 again. Since its IPO, this becomes the fourth time that the company has hit its $45 mark. Each time it has been a real challenge for the company to rise above the IPO price.

Uber has made its name through its market dominance however it’s growth continues to be slow-paced and also has continuous losses, making Uber less attractive to many. However, the thing that Uber has done is bring more attention to the on-demand and delivery stock arena.

Special Delivery: Small-Cap Delivery Stocks Are Gaining Ground In Cannabis

Driven Deliveries Inc. (OTC: DRVD) is one of the only publicly traded cannabis delivery service operating in the United States. Now that’s what we call first-mover advantage. Driven Deliveries provides on-demand marijuana delivery in select cities where allowed by law. The service provides the legal cannabis consumer the ability to purchase and receive their marijuana in a fast and convenient manner.

Consumers are growing increasingly lazy with most of all purchases from retail to food shopping being done online. And now you can add weed to that list. Driven Deliveries (OTC: DRVD) is quickly gaining steam in legal US markets as the new delivery option for customers is resulting in increased revenue and transactions for dispensaries.

Food delivery apps and services such as GrubHub and Uber Eats have already expanded revenue generated in the food-service industry by 22% or more. Consumers love getting what they want without having to leave their house to get it, plain and simple.  

In Spite Of Being A Broken IPO, Still Worth An Investment

Cannabis is just one small niche expanding into the on-demand technology market. Uber has always managed to capture the headlines. This week it did that by launching itself in the sixth German city, Hamburg. The company further has plans to acquire Postmates which gives UberEats a heavy competition provided the price is right.

McDonald’s exclusivity with Uber also came to an end this year with the former getting into a contract with DoorDash. The company is set to report its financial results for Q2 on August 8. Uber had given accounts of its earlier performance through the prospectus issued during the IPO.

UBER stock price has been trading at $40 range since June. But, the figure is likely to change in the coming future for better. Uber has been able to disrupt various markets like those of food delivery, personal mobility, and freight logistics. In Q1 results, the company had reported 93 million monthly active platform consumers.

The revenue of the company has been on a slow rise especially on a net basis. The company sends a major portion of the money received to its drivers to keep them encouraged and active. This is a move that is not going away anytime soon. The deep deficits could also prove to be advantageous for the company.

Even though Uber looks like a broken IPO, it still leads in its industry. The concerns with the valuation persist still for good reasons. Uber continues to ride at a market cap which is five times the current year’s revenue. But, one would have to wait till 2025 to see a positive earning in the growing market.
