HubSpot In The News

HubSpot: Still Accelerating Into Growth, Now Operationally Cash Flow Positive

Summary of the article

  • HubSpot is an easy buy and has been for a while - buy all dips.
  • HubSpot's growth looks great and its internals of the growth look good too - both signs of a healthy company.
  • Expect much, much higher equity pricing for HubSpot going forward - as HubSpot matures it should be a cash flow machine.

HubSpot (NYSE:HUBS) continues to be an easy buy into excellent Q2/15 reporting. Absent its consistent high beta selling when macro markets experience pullbacks, this is a name that trades steadily higher into what has been excellent execution since IPO. I believe that HubSpot's current selloff, which shows shares that have come down 11% from 52-week highs (giving the name 12.5 points to the topside before hitting its first technical resistance), offers an opportunity to take a long-term buy position. HubSpot, despite posting its first operational cash flow positive quarter at Q2/15, remains very early in its maturation cycle.

Problems most of our clients face when we first engage:

  • Not delighting their existing clients

HubSpot Wishlist

Add a new module : integrate "Login with Facebook" button on LandingPages and Blogs

A lot of people are using the "Login with Facebook or Login with LinkedIn" button to connect their Facebook or LinkedIn profile with a website, instead of completing the forms with Name, E-mail address, etc.

It's the easiest way to register & login for extra content, so why wouldn't HubSpot offer this possibility too? This episode's wishlist item is “Login with” modules in the template builder.

Salary Grader

Grader Methodology

HubSpot’s Marketing Salary Grader makes its calculations using self-reported data collected from marketers across the country.

Salary grades are adjusted based on location to account for geographic variances in salary. This puts everyone on a more even playing field, since the same salary can be considered more or less valuable depending on an area’s cost of living.

That being said, keep in mind that this tool was created for your amusement and to pique your curiosity. Salary grading is not an exact science!
