+ Watch RST
on My Watchlist
Rosetta Stone Inc. provides technology-based language learning solutions.
No moat - free apps.
seems to cheap here for the value they bring. in the midst of a turnaround under the new CEO
Now that it's getting into learning other than justl languages, I think this company will succeed
One of the bigger disappointments of the last 5 years. These guys have a unique offering and a seemingly great competitive advantage yet poor management has left these guys out in the cold. Management's goal of better than $400 million in revenue by 2015 is optimistic for sure; I just don't see any reasons why this stock outperforms the market. I called it out on Investor Beat as such.
This is a fad stock.
Present changes (movement to online and other related changes) will pay off, but it will likely take 12 to 24 months for there to be any significant positive improvements in bottom line. There may be some increase in stock price in the next year though if it starts to look like changes are taking effect.
I use it, and it works!
Rosetta Stone is doing the right thing now - reducing prices and starting to rely on subscription revenue. One can now subscribe and use the product over the 'net from anywhere at a very reasonable monthly cost.This will potentially add users in a market that it dominates.
As a user of RST myself i find it a bit cumbersome and it actually pressures one to stay on a timeline. That fact has caused me to halt using it for the time being - my schedule doesn't allow me such luxury.
Rosetta is back on the way up. New Management and new sales prospects look good!
International market growth boom.
RST stock has been crushed (though it is up from low of about $7) but revenue has been increasing generally. I think they can find a way to increase margins.
Back again after yesterday's unexplained jump. I am trying to push my total score on this company out past 200 points.
Rosetta Stone is a very tempting stock for me, I almost became a shareholder. But I believe that their product is simply too much of a luxury good to fulfill high expectations. However, I do believe that with their superior offerings, they will streamline and adapt and become profitable eventually. Management must stabilize though.
Rosetta Stone has a store in the Short Hills Mall in New Jersey that always appears empty, even as the Apple store next door teems with traffic. This store simply can't be making money for Rosetta Stone. Why do they keep it open year after year?
Not that great a program for learning.
