FUBO Is Down More Than 80% This Year. Should Long-Term Investors Buy the Stock Now?

fuboTV (FUBO) reported disappointing first-quarter results. Moreover, analysts lowered their expectations for this stock owing to slow streaming ad-revenue growth. However, since the stock has declined more than 80% year-to-date, would it be worth adding the stock to your portfolio for long-term returns? Let’s find out...

fuboTV Inc. (FUBO) functions as a live TV streaming platform for live sports, news, and entertainment content in the United States and worldwide. Its fuboTV platform permits customers to access content through streaming devices and on SmartTVs, computers, mobile phones, and tablets.

The stock has declined 84.1% year-to-date and 91.1% over the past nine months since investors have turned away from high-growth yet unprofitable companies. Despite achieving strong growth in subscribers and revenue, with North American subscriber growth of 81% year-over-year, the company experienced some pressure on adjusted contribution margin due to slower ad sales growth in a less robust advertising market than initially expected.

Analysts have lowered their FY22 estimates for FUBO stating growing competition in the vMVPD space, slower streaming ad-revenue growth, and weakening U.S. consumer spending. The stock closed its last trading session at $2.46.

Here is what could shape FUBO’s performance in the near term:

Weak Financials

For the first quarter ending March 31, 2022, FUBO’s operating loss increased 107.8% year-over-year to $135.24 million. The company’s net loss increased 100.7% from its year-ago value to $140.72 million, while its loss per share grew 50.8% from its prior-year quarter to $0.89. Its net cash used in operating activities grew 135.2% year-over-year to $126.69 million.

Poor Profitability

The trailing-12-month gross profit margin is negative 3.98% compared to the industry average of 50.74%. Moreover, the trailing-12-month net income margin, ROE, ROC, and ROA are negative at 59.61%, 65.5%, 24.88%, and 31.15%, respectively, compared to their positive industry averages.

POWR Ratings Reflect Bleak Outlook

In addition, it has a D grade for Growth, which is justified given its bleak financial performance.

Bottom Line

FUBO has declined 90.4% over the past year. Given its weak financials and poor profitability, it could be difficult for the company to recover anytime soon. So, the stock is best avoided now.

How Does fuboTV Inc. (FUBO) Stack Up Against its Peers?

While FUBO has an overall POWR Rating of F, one might want to consider its industry peer, Endeavor Group Holdings, Inc. (EDR), which has an overall B (Buy) rating.

FUBO shares were trading at $2.51 per share on Friday afternoon, up $0.04 (+1.62%). Year-to-date, FUBO has declined -83.83%, versus a -18.31% rise in the benchmark S&P 500 index during the same period.
