Wood’s bullish view on Roku Inc is in line with the Bank of America analyst Ruplu Bhattacharya who reiterated his “buy” rating on it after the earnings report citing the following reasons:

Better than expected metrics of active accounts, streaming hours, better traction in programmatic and potential bottoming of ad trends.

The streaming-media company added 1.6 million active accounts in its recent financial quarter. Also encouraging is the management’s confidence in turning adjusted EBITDA positive in 2024.

Bhattacharya sees upside in Roku stock to $85 – more than 60% premium on its current price.
