Why Overstock.com Shares Rallied Nearly 17% Today

What happened

Shares of online retailer Overstock.com(NASDAQ:OSTK) rose nearly 17% at one point in morning trading on Feb. 3. Although the stock had pulled back a little by 1 p.m. EST, it was still up about 13%. As has been the case lately, the move higher wasn't related to Overstock.com's retail business, but its Medici Ventures operation. 

So what

Medici Ventures is a subsidiary that has material investments in blockchain businesses. The big news last week was that Overstock.com plans to create a partnership with Pelion Venture Partners, leaving Pelion to run the business. The completion of that deal, however, is likely months away. But that hasn't stopped Medici Ventures from continuing to expand its presence in the blockchain space.

Specifically, the online retailer announced that Medici Ventures' tZero group has agreed to integrate technology with Vertalo, a digital transfer agent. Without getting too deep into the weeds, it appears that the deal increases the reach of both companies. And since anything blockchain gets investors excited these days, it isn't surprising that Overstock.com's shares were bid higher on the news.   

Now what

Overstock.com's main business is selling things on the internet, a fact that it made pretty clear when it agreed to have Pelion manage the Medici business. That said, Medici is still part of Overstock.com, so you can't really separate the two. That makes Overstock.com something of a blockchain play. However, with shares up nearly 1,000% over the past year, a lot of good news is already priced in here. Investors should probably tread with caution.

Why Overstock.com Tanked 11.5% at the Open Today

The online retailer got hit as it reported increased revenues and earnings. Here's the trend you really need to watch.

What happened

Shares of online retailerOverstock.com(NASDAQ:OSTK) dropped a quick 11.5% on Feb. 24. The big news was earnings, which were actually higher year over year. But the real story may be higher up on the income statement.

So what

At first blush, Overstock.com knocked it out of the park in the final quarter of 2020. Revenues were up 84% year over year. Earnings rose to $0.26 per share, a vast improvement over the loss of $0.73 per share in the final stanza of 2019. The company beat analyst expectations on both the top and bottom lines as well, though those figures include data from only three analysts. Still, it is hard to complain too much about the company's results.

That is, until you look at the revenue trend. In the second quarter, after the coronavirus had started to spread more widely and online shopping increased accordingly, Overstock.com had a year-over-year revenue increase of 109%. In the third quarter the figure was 111%. So the fourth quarter's 84% increase is actually a material sequential quarterly decline in the revenue growth rate. It is quite possible that the boost from the coronavirus is nearing an end. In fact, the company's comments about its 2021 goals started with the word sustainable, which is an interesting, perhaps less-than-confidence-inspiring, choice given the drop in the revenue growth rate between the third and fourth quarters of 2020.   

Now what

Overstock.com's shares rose 580% in 2020, but were higher by more than 1,500% at one point during the year, an astounding figure. Including today's decline, the stock is up around 65% so far in 2021, but was higher by as much as 120% at one point. There is a great deal of good news priced into the stock, which suggests investors are expecting perfection. That's going to be hard to live up to if the shift toward online shopping abates as the world learns to deal with the coronavirus. And the wild ups and downs in the share price suggest investor support here is...mercurial at best. Caution is probably in order here for more aggressive long-term investors. Conservative types, meanwhile, would probably be better off watching this roller-coaster ride from the sidelines.
