Blackboxstocks (NASDAQ: BLBX) is a lot of things. It’s revolutionary, fast, secure, analytical, and partnered with industry leader TradeStation. But, here’s another thing about BlackBoxStocks- it’s Robinhood on steroids. And that’s to say that Robinhood doesn’t have its place. It does. In fact, it did well to provide retail investors quick access to stock market investing. It also put pressure on big brokerage houses to reduce or eliminate trading fees and commissions. For that, kudos.
But, while HOOD may have opened the doors, it’s having a hard time ushering traders through. Its stock is lower by about 51% from its August high as competition from other online trading platforms poach on its once competitive trading rates. Not only that, the major online brokers are offering more comprehensive trading tools and integrated features that serve as an all-in-one way for traders to access stocks. Thus, while HOOD may have blazed a trail for the retail trading class, better platforms and trading tool alternatives will likely continue to erode its market share.
Of course, that’s exceptionally great news for the comparatively better platforms, Blackboxstocks included. And after raising about $12 million from its public offering last week, with a simultaneous NASDAQ uplist, BLBX has institutional interest and the financial muscle to penetrate targeted markets sooner than later. The better news for investors considering the stock, they are executing that mission now.
Accelerating Growth With Best-In-Class Platform
There’s even better news- a post offering hangover is putting its stock on sale despite BLBX being in its best operating position in history. And while sale prices are attractive, what could be of more appeal to investors is that gains may be fueled by a short squeeze from investors taking an exposed short position on the stock ahead of another expected strong quarter. In fact, expectations are for BLBX to significantly better its results from its previous comparative quarter. Thus, while short-sellers may get their way short term from leveraging relatively low liquidity, being caught at current levels may be detrimental to one’s portfolio health over the coming weeks.
Keep in mind that there are few, if any, arguments made against BLBX being a best-in-class trading platform. Not only that, with plenty of cash in the bank, they are ideally positioned to take advantage of massive growth in the retail trading markets. Notably, Forbes recently highlighted that the sector is in a period of hyper-growth, with unicorn investors providing more than $91.5 billion in global funding this year. Better still, Forbes believes it’s only the start of substantially more investment dollars to come. For BLBX, that’s more than excellent news; it puts them in the catbird’s position to capitalize on a perfect storm of revenue-generating opportunity by expanding its brand and putting its Blackboxstocks trading platform into the hands of millions. Yes, millions.
That’s not at all an unreasonable target, especially after institutional investors ponied up $12 million to expedite BLBX growth. Even better, BLBX has proven its ability to beat even the highest end of expectations. Thus, betting against substantial user growth in the coming weeks and quarters may be far too contrarian. Further, it would go against the grain of a growth spurt that’s gaining momentum.
BLBX Revenues Surge In Q2
In August, BlackBoxStocks Inc. Q2 revenues surged by 81% over the same period last year. And the six-month comparison was even better, with BLBX income soaring by 141% in the comparative period. Also important to note, those massive gains came with a tailwind, perpetuating the idea that the $2.9 million generated during the first six months of the year are only a precursor of more considerable increases to come. Actually, BLBX guided that to be the case, saying that while 2021 has been a great year, 2022 can be the breakout.
Why? Because BLBX has taken its most aggressive position ever to maximize its potential and is planning to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to augment marketing and enhance its industry-leading technology. So, while its marketing message resonated and drove user adoption substantially with its 2021 budget allocation, 2022 expenditures to push an even stronger message can drive potentially exponential growth. Still, don’t rule out a surprise in Q4.
BLBX has already implemented new technology, allowing BLBX to scale even faster than the record-setting growth showed this year. Hence, BLBX isn’t only a long-term value play; it’s a near-term one as well, with accretive revenues and user growth expected to be reported this quarter.
Of course, BLBX isn’t only a compelling investment opportunity. It’s also attractive to investors needing tools to survive in the uber-competitive trading world. For BLBX investors and platform users, it’s the ultimate win-win proposition. And while the valuation disconnect was noted, a more detailed review of why its platform is a favorite and preferred tool among traders is equally warranted. There’s a lot to like.
Foremost, the Blackboxstocks platform is the ultimate tool for traders and investors demanding real-time data and fast, accurate information. And don’t compare it to a simple Level 2 platform. Users of BLBX benefit from a powerful financial technology and social media hybrid platform bringing real-time proprietary analytics and news for stock and options traders. But, while those ingredients can be a trader’s best friend, Blackboxstocks takes things several steps further.
Its biggest attraction is probably the platform’s innovative software that takes the guesswork out of trading by employing “predictive technology.” In other words, it virtually sets up every trade consideration through enhanced AI that finds volatility and unusual market activity resulting in rapid price changes of a stock or option. And that screening happens in a measurement of milliseconds, providing a trading edge to BlackBoxStocks users that have been historically reserved for professional traders. Moreover, it levels the playing field against those utilizing high-frequency trading and dark pools by giving retail investors a simple “click to action” means of executing a trade. Simply put, it’s a trader’s survival tool.
Best of all, BlackBoxStocks is easy to use, with a learning curve measured in hours instead of months.
BlackBoxStocks Out Of The Gate Good
Not only can it be used by traders out-of-the-gate, but it’s fast… warp speed fast. The embedded technology continuously scans the NASDAQ, New York Stock Exchange, CBOE, and all other options markets, analyzing over 10,000 stocks and up to 1,500,000 options contracts multiple times per second. In addition, the platform also provides its users with a fully interactive social media platform integrated into a user-friendly dashboard enabling users to exchange information and ideas quickly and efficiently through a shared network.
Better yet, the platform is ideal for retail investors that want to follow the trades of more seasoned investors. There, the BLBX platform provides less seasoned traders a way to follow more savvy ones through its live audio/video feature, allowing members to broadcast on their own channels to share trade ideas. Hence, the BLBX platform is ideal for trading communities, and best of all, gives the entire team the simultaneous benefit of knowledge, speed, and access to real-time information. More excellent, a simple click of the mouse can deliver the millisecond difference between winning and losing trades. Notably, one of the biggest names in the industry is adding to the platform’s power.
Last year, BLBX integrated its powerful platform with innovative and market-leading tools at TradeStation (NYSE: QFTA). That deal is a massive validation for BLBX and gives users an inherent ability to trade stocks and options via TradeStation without ever leaving the Blackbox platform. Not only that, the deal made BLBX one of the only companies offering a financial technology and social media hybrid platform providing real-time proprietary analytics for stock and options traders of all levels.
Moreover, the partnership immediately provided new and existing users with a Quick-Click feature that loads proprietary automated alerts for options contracts through a simple two-click process. The genius of the integration is in its simplicity. And without having to know how, the most important feature is that it saves traders crucial time on order entry and execution. Here’s another advantage. Users get a dual benefit from real-time Blackbox trading alerts and from TradeStation’s discounted trading rate with no ticket fee to Blackbox members using this feature.
Perhaps best of all, the combined proprietary efficiencies of both companies give users a lightning-fast order entry system that dramatically reduces the time it takes to enter options contracts. And while speed may kill, so does not having it when it comes to trading. In trading, having it can be the difference between successful and ineffective trading strategies. And just as important as speed, simplicity is an advantage too. BLBX has that as well. Users simply click on any of Blackboxstocks’s proprietary options alerts or options flow data, click the highlighted trade button, and watch the trade get executed. The partnership is transformative to BLBX. Better still, investors get the value of both.
So, while short-sellers are getting their way in November, trading contrary to that opinion may be timely.
Breakout In 2022
Here’s the bottom line- while BLBX was strong in 2020, 2021 has been even better. Thus, don’t get easily shaken by the turbulence. Remember, in Q1 of this year, BLBX posted a 259% jump in revenues to $1.5 million compared to the same period last year. Moreover, they generated an operating income of $145,132 for the first quarter of 2021 compared to a loss from operations of $230,713 last year. Not only that, after raising $12 million last week, BLBX is in its best cash position ever.
Not only that, its operating performance is keeping its bullish trend. As noted, BLBX reported an 81% and 141% spike in revenues for the three and six months ending June 30, 2021, respectively. And, after solid comparative growth in Q3, the company added guidance suggesting that revenue-generating momentum is at BLBX’s into the final quarter of this year. Thus, with BLBX shares on sale and a platform helpful to millions of traders, the value proposition at current prices is more than attractive; it’s compelling.
