Mobile ad technology company Digital Turbine (NASDAQ: APPS) has been focused on expanding its portfolio through strategic acquisitions and partnerships. The widespread adoption of digital services during the pandemic catalyzed revenue growth, driving up quarterly results to record highs.
Investing in APPS
For the Austin-based company, which provides solutions to monetize mobile content, 2021 was a pivotal year in terms of business expansion. In recent years, the stock gained multi-fold and reached a peak in early 2021, but lost steam since then. It got a much-needed boost last week after the company posted strong third-quarter results.
The good news is that the stock has just begun the upward journey, according to analysts who unanimously recommend buying APPS. It is expected to gain a whopping 65% this year. The bullish target price, combined with the affordable stock price, should be seen as a rare buying opportunity.
Digital Turbine’s recent performance shows the management’s efforts to reposition the business to leverage its on-device competitive advantages — so as to effectively capitalize on the unfolding market opportunities this year and beyond — are paying off. The impressive device footprint should continue to drive growth going forward.
From Digital Turbine’s Q3 2022 earnings call transcript:

Combined with that, is also focusing on unifying our processes like how we work on new clients, manage our people and manage our customer accounts. These things all allow us to operate more efficiently so we can capitalize on the future strategy.”
