Brightcove: Operating In A Tough Spot

Since peaking in early 2021, Brightcove's share price has plummeted almost 70% from its all-time high. After enjoying a massive tailwind in 2020, the video software company is now in a tough spot as the pandemic wanes and competition increases significantly. The company financials are deteriorating very quickly with revenue, gross profit, and important KPIs such as ARPU all turning south. It is now trading at a significant discount compared to its peers but I believe the company is a sell as fundamentals and financials are very weak at the moment.
