Bireme Capital, in its letter to investors for the third quarter of 2021, mentioned fuboTV Inc. (NYSE: FUBO) and discussed his position on the company. fuboTV Inc. is a New York-based streaming company with a market capitalization of $ 4.7 billion. FUBO delivered a 20.57% year-to-date yield, while its 12-month yields are increasing by 126.12%. The stock closed at $ 33.06 per share on November 1, 2021
Here’s what Bireme Capital has to say about fuboTV Inc. in his letter to investors Q3 2021:
“FuboTV, an over-the-top television company, also saw its price plummet from February’s peak, in this case from $ 50 to around $ 26 today. We remain convinced that this case is the classic case of selling a dollar at 90c. The company didn’t even make a gross profit in 2020, with subscriber spend and broadcast costs totaling $ 234 million compared to just $ 218 million in revenue. And since vMVPD content costs tend to increase almost linearly with subscribers, we would expect the business to continue to lose money.
Still, FuboTV’s market cap remains at nearly $ 4 billion, as investors pray that future sports betting on their TV business will somehow stop the tide of red ink. To achieve this, the company may need to raise significant capital as the company recorded an operating cash outflow of $ 149 million in 2020. We remain short of FUBO. “
