Lightspeed (LSPD.TO) a fascinating growth story from Montréal

Thursday Apr 25th 2019

It still looks a bit early to buy LSPD.TO but I’m watching.

Some call it a small Shopify. If the stock could end up with the same growth Shopify’s stock has had that would be incredible. I personally don’t think comparing Lightspeed to Shopify is really a great comparison but I do love Lightspeed as a company. Their growth story is fabulous.

Wikipedia has the whole Lightspeed story if you’d like to learn everything. At first, Dax Dasilva founded Lightspeed to help businesses create a great online experience. That’s really close to Shopify’s goals. But later Lightspeed really moved to being the first interactive POS platform that would give retailers innovative sales and inventory management tools.

Lightspeed was the iNovia portfolio star. In March 2019, the company went public and it’s currently traded on Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol LSPD.

Uber looking at $90 billion valuation in IPO

Thursday Apr 25th 2019

It’s not only earning seasons, it’s IPO season. This year is already seeing a wave of new Tech IPOs. After Lyft, Uber‘s turn is coming. We can consider Uber a technology company for sure and its valuation is straight in line with tech unicorn valuations.

In Montreal, after the failure of Teo Taxi, Uber is the only taxi option with a decent app. But don’t despair, Lyft is supposed to be coming this year and Pierre-Karl Peladeau is buying Taxelco (including Two assets). This should help the consumer looking for better taxi options in Montréal.
