Trading Idea of the Day
NYSE:DUOL - Duolingo Inc - BULLISH BIAS (long term)
- Key levels on the chart - consider taking trades from key support/resistance zones.
- Nearly 50 million monthly active users engage with Duolingo since Q2 2022. The company made its IPO in 2021, and management has set a goal to make learning available and fulfilling via their technology.
- The total language market is estimated to be $60b per year, and is still mostly taught offline. However, management expects to see a shift to online learning in the future.
- The company has recently re-entered the Chinese market, which is the largest English language learning opportunity. Although the Chinese market present difficulty in monetization and the possibility of change in the current political climate, if Duolingo is able to penetrate deep into the Chinese market, it opens up opportunity for a large increase in paying subscribers.
- With 3.3 million paying subscribers, the company has made $306 million in the last 12 months, and expects around $365 million in revenue for 2023.
- The company will be focused on language in the next 3 to 5 years, but is testing their Math app as a new opportunity. The new app is estimated to be put in beta sometime in 2022.
