New I/O Fund Appearances
Beth Kindig, of I/O Fund, is my favorite analyst when it comes to Ad Tech. She was exceedingly active this week discussing some of most popular companies in the space. While most I/O content is behind a paywall these appearances and breakdowns are free!

Here are some links:

Appearance on Motley Fool Money discussing the Ad Tech climate (expects bounce back by Q3): https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/beth-kindig-on-tech-stocks/id306106212?i=1000558306544

If you did not know Beth's work I hope that this puts this talented researcher on your radar. What ad tech analysts do you follow?
Is Monday.com ($MNDY) truly pioneering a new style of software?
That's what management claims. This company has nearly doubled revenue each of the last two years, suggesting that this software is more than just a niche fad. They have differentiated themselves from competitors by providing an open WorkOS platform composed of building blocks, allowing customers to create their own customized workflows.

$MNDY currently holds a full 5% position in the growth account, but $ASAN and $TEAM both provided a high degree of competition for a spot in the portfolio. For fellow investors who have done their fair share of research in the work management space, how do you feel about the competition between these three companies?

In this article, I discuss my reasoning for owning the stock as well as some risks that could derail this growth story. As always, all content is free and I encourage readers to share their opinion on all stocks discussed.

all $ASAN $MNDY $TEAM have great products both feature-wise and when looking at reviews, though I recently found a combination of $MNDY and $TEAM fitting the best for me as the overlap isn't too huge but still covers a lot of optionality than let's say a combination of $ASAN and $MNDY.

My $ASAN - Asana thesis
I think Asana has incredible room to grow within its current customers and acquire new greenfield customers. I can almost see them being critical for business success and powering a competitive advantage for customers. They have a strong moat with network effects and switching costs along with a strong vision, culture, and team.

Sam's portfolio review
Hello CommonStock, I saw multiple posts from my fellow colleagues sharing their portfolios, explaining their intent and seeking feedback from the community. I believe this is a great place to share knowledge and learn, we all have something to gain one from another, so I thought it'd be a great idea to do my iteration of this concept.

Here's my portfolio:

To put things into a perspective, I'm 19yo student whose mission is to invest in a great tech businesses that change our life for the better.

My portfolio is built around these themes:

  • 5G
  • AI
  • AR/VR
  • Blockchain Technology
  • Cloud Computing
  • Cybersecurity
  • Creativity
  • Digital Commerce
  • Digital Advertising
  • Digital Education
  • Fintech
  • Gaming
  • Gig Economy
  • Internet of Things
  • Modern Enterprise
  • Robotics
  • Renewable Energy
  • Streaming
  • Semiconductors
  • Telehealth

My portfolio therefore consists of mainly high growth, disruptive technology companies. A simple reason why is that I know technologies the best from all sectors and I believe its a very diverse approach in order to catch most of our civilized world progress as those technologies pretty much are used across sectors, whether we talk agriculture, mining, etc. The goal of the portfolio is to invest in great companies who I can let run for years to come which can eventually secure me an earlier retirement 😃

I like to invest in:
  • software companies primarily with an expected growth of greater than 15% over a few years out, so basically there's a greater chance they can outperform the market even without a multiple expansion
  • companies with a great culture and great ratings from employees across Glassdoor/Comparably
  • founder-led mission driven companies with significant insider ownership
  • companies producing FCF or at least those who I believe will produce FCFs in the future
  • leaders in their respective sectors (so the best of bread)

It's worth mentioning that I plan to make some changes to my portfolio soon, so this isn't a final look, and so to make this clear, I plan to:

I'm looking forward to hear your thoughts, suggestions and answer your questions, if there are any 😃

Hot seats
As Q1 earnings arrive, I have my set of holdings I'll cut or will be looking to cut depending on the performance and results posted by those... I was thinking about a bit of a consolidation in my corporate enterprise allocation, and decided to:


There seems to be nothing wrong with those names, I just thought like there's a pretty substantial overlap between them and so I decided to cut some and strengthen those other names.

And then on the other hand I have $DOCU -- I'll be really closely watching the execution of Agreement Cloud, as this is a substantial part of my thesis and they seem to have some problems there for a couple of quarters already... If I'll see just another underperformance on that part I'll be selling for $ADBE or one of the other names I want to add to my portfolio but yet didn't buy any.

Secondly, there's $ZM. Still a leader in this market, but I'm seeing some evolution of competitors in this pretty competitive space, and so I'll be closely watching what they have to say about the competition and put their numbers into a perspective. Will decide then what to do.

Notably, I'll be looking to listen to $OKTA's earnings call to see the effects of their breach and how they answer questions on their reaction to the fact.
