Top NYSE:INST Bull/Bear Pitches

The best Bull and Bear pitches based on recency and number of recommendations.

I'm usually a bear on education stocks, but this company provides a valid SaaS that's head and shoulders above what's come before. Given the high switching costs, optionality, and serious momentum, I think this is a great pick.

Instructure's main software-as-a-service (SaaS) product, Canvas, is best known to the higher-education audience; however, the company's newest product, Bridge, is beginning to establish a foothold in corporations too. Instructure's software is already being used by more than 4,000 colleges, universities, K-12 school systems, and companies to develop, deliver, manage, communicate, and track academic and employee development programs. These clients pay Instructure anywhere from thousands of dollars to several million dollars, and in 2018, its net revenue retention rate exceeded 100% thanks to high retention rates and expansion. Recurring subscription revenue represents 90% of the company's sales, which totaled $210 million in 2018, up 30% from 2017. Its addressable market in education alone exceeds $1 billion. Combined with its new corporate initiative, Instructure estimates its total addressable market exceeds $15 billion.

I feel confident that education is one of the next big industry to be disrupted. Instructure will likely be a part of that change through their learning software.

Might be getting a good price here after the recent fall, but who knows with these "cloud" companies. 6.5X earnings is not terrible considering similar SaaS businesses.


Member Avatar TMFPencils (99.93) Submitted: 7/19/2018 2:26:13 PM : Outperform Start Price: $45.95 NYSE:INST Score: -5.36

Seems underappreciated when it comes to the wide array of SaaS companies going public these days. Nice insider ownership, highly-rated company culture, ~70% gross margin, healthy balance sheet, revenue growing 35%+, and the company has what looks like a sizable (and growing) addressable market.

Trading for 8.1x trailing sales. Hard to call that "cheap", but it is low relative to most other SaaS companies. Instructure is still unprofitable, but losses (and cash burn) are shrinking.

Current market cap is $1.6 billion, and given the company's underlying performance I think a double in five years is doable. Outperform.
