Nopealla vilkaisulla ihan OK osari Catenalta. Ei jytky, mutta ei myöskään erityisen pehmeä. Jenkkilä kasvaa edelleen vahvasti. LIikevaihdosta sieltä jo yli puolet. Vuosi sitten tammikuun kasvu oli muistaakseni > 60 %. Tämäkin vuosi on alkanut semivahvan kasvun merkeissä. Jännä nähdä tänään markkinareaktio.

Markkinalla ei ole edelleenkään yhtään luotto Catena Median tulevaisuuteen. Lähin verrokki Better Collective julkaisi samaan aikaan tuloksen (2x marketcap ja tuloksia voi vertailla...) ja lähti vielä lujempaa päinvastaiseen suuntaan. Shortit ovat olleet CM:n kimpussa jo pitkään. Twitteristä taisin nähdä graafin jonka mukaan shortteja oli suljettu aika paljon kun kurssi karkasi >70sek, mutta nyt varmaan heikkoudessa back in business. 

Ulkit kun lyö tällaisen yhtiön laput laitaan, niin jälki on juuri tämän näköistä. Vaikea tätä alamäkeä on logiikalla selittää tai ymmärtää.

Jenkkilä avautumassa ja kasvaa. CTM:n liikevaihdosta sieltä puolet. CTM kasvaa jenkkilässä tällä hetkellä yli 100 % vauhdilla. Arizona avautui Q3 aikana. H1/22 avautumassa lisäksi Illinois, New York ja Ontario (CA). Näissä asuu yhteensä yli 45 miljoonaa ihmistä. Kaikki merkittävät urheiluvedonlyönti- ja casinoyhtiöt menossa avautuville markkinoille. Japani kasvaa yli 100 % vauhtia, 9 % liikevaihdosta sieltä tällä hetkellä.

Arvioin, että ensi vuonna CTM tekee liikevaihtoa yhteensä reilusti yli 100me jenkkilästä, japanista ja kanadasta. 

Lisäksi CTM:n bisneksistä jää katetta omistajille vähän eri tyyliin kuin entisen hallisponsorin bisneksistä.

Odotetunlainen raportti. Jenkkiliikevaihdon kasvu selkeä plussa. Huhtikuun 15 % kasvu pieni pettymys vaikkakin Q2 oli viime vuonna vahvin kvartaali. Odotin (lue toivoin) vahvempaa kasvua. Lisäksi pikkuplussina voisi mainita velkaantumisasteen nopean laskun, omien osakkeiden ostosuunnitelma ja vahva kassavirta.

Tuskin isoja kurssiliikkeitä tänään?

Tällä hetkellä huitelee tosiaan lujaa, mutta yksikin Googlen antama manuaalinen rankku Catenan saiteille voi romahduttaa seuraavien neljännesten tulot. Näin kävi esimerkiksi samoilla markkinoilla kilpailevalle XLMedialle vuosi sitten (https://focusgn.com/xlmedia-seeks-google-resubmission-as-revenue-plunges)

Hankala arvioida, kuinka todennäköisesti tuo voi Catenan sivuihin iskeä, mutta perusteita varmasti löytyy tuhannen ostetun linkin jne myötä. Firma on kuitenkin 100% riippuvainen Googlesta ja riskin realisoituessa voi yhdessä yössä tipahtaa kolmannes tuotoista.

Erittäin aiheellinen muistutus tämän kaltaisten osakkeiden riskeistä. Tämä ei ole Kone tai WMT -tyylinen yhtiö omistaa.

Minun mielestä Catenaankaan ei kannata sijoittaa yhtään senttiä enempää kuin on vara hävitä. Nyt menee lujaa, isot markkinat ovat aukeamassa mutta riskiäkin piisaa. Ostotarjousoptio tässä toki on koko ajan sisällä. Varmaan alle 100SEK tarjoukset hylätään suoralta kädeltä.

Edelleen tätä mieltä vaikka tänään 50SEK poks. Uusi tj Daly näkee jenkkilän lisäksi paljon potentiaalia mm UK:ssa, Saksassa, Ontariossa ja Brasiliassa.

Markkina todellakin tykkäsi Catenan q4 rapsasta. Osake > +20 %  ja TO1 -warret > +30 % tänään. 

Raportissa paljon hyvää mutta arvelen markkinan ihastuneen etenkin tammikuun +58 yoy -kasvuun. Käsittämättömän kova luku. Q1 21 tulee olemaan lähes varmuudella double digit growth quarter. Minusta tässä on edelleen huomattavasti enemmän upside potentiaalia kuin downside riskiä. En pidä kalliina enkä myy edelleenkään TO1 -possaani näihin hintoihin. Mutta anyway pehmeä q3 kävi minulle lopulta kalliiksi koska luovuin kaikista osakkeistani. Tänään niistä olisi saanut about 8 kruunua enemmän kappaleelta ja kevään aikana vielä lähes varmuudella paljon enemmän.

Elämä on.
