Recent News & Updates
Roblox Inches Towards The Metaverse
Roblox just announced the long-awaited addition of voice chat to the platform. They move very slowly and deliberately. Roblox is building a fairly unique platform in a crowded space - the metaverse. They have a very clear idea of what they want it to be. This is a project that will take years to complete, and there is much competition. Considering the risks, Roblox’s stock price is way out ahead of itself. I think a better price will come after they report Q3.
Roblox Corporation Is A Buy In Our World
Roblox Corporation operates an immersive gaming platform, a toolkit where developers can create and users live in virtual worlds. This concept is as old as a field - in computing you can trace the roots of this notion back to text-based Multi-User Dungeons from the 1970s. The notion of immersive infinite worlds is becoming common in software - Slack, for instance, was conceived of as an "infinite game". Roblox has exceptionally strong financials and its valuation is modest in the light of its growth and margins - we rate the name at Buy on a long term basis.
