This is a bet that the 14% drop in Shutterstock because Adobe bought a privately-held competitor and is entering the digital photo rights segment is an overreaction.

- As small businesses embrace online advertising, they'll further increase the demand for stock photos/video.

- Shutterstock's platform pays based on volume downloaded, which significantly reduces content costs. The average price of an image downloaded was $2.35 earlier this year, compared to $500-$1,000 for larger competitors like Getty.

Very profitable, cash-rich, virtually no debt, and an incredibly well-aligned management team (founder/CEO owns 45% of shares outstanding). A strong network effect creates a moat around its profitable business. Expanding into adjacent business lines should provide more profitable growth. It's not at all cheap, but it's much cheaper than it was a few weeks ago. Long-term green thumb.

Shutterstock has been growing tenaciously since it's IPO, and still maintaining net profits in the ~15% range. They have tons of cash to reinvest in sales and marketing and grow their market share. With a library in the tens of millions of clips, they have a good niche carved out for B2B customers who want variety.

Unsustainable due to the competition in this industry, over supply of images and lowering of prices by all competitors.
