October 16, 2015 Stock Pick: Twitter, Inc. (TWTR)

Stock Price: $29.71

Twitter, Inc. operates as a global platform for public self-expression and conversation in real time.

TWTR currently trades at a market cap of approximately $20 billion while LinkedIn (LNKD) trades at a market cap nearing $26 billion. When most people think of the top two social networks, they think of Facebook (FB) and Twitter. This is where the value is at in TWTR right now.

TWTR is trading at least at a 30% discount due to poor management over the past few years. The service is great at dispersing information and they are well entrenched on mobile as well. Twitter is the new age news media and they are mentioned on traditional media (television) all over the place.

It's true that TWTR isn't profitable yet, but with the right leadership Twitter has the potential to soar and begin to close the gap to Facebook and certainly pass up LinkedIn in the social media hierarchy. Twitter may now have that leadership with Jack Dorsey coming back as CEO. The company already started cutting expenses by laying off 336 workers.

There are almost always two players in every industry competing against each other and Twitter is the clear competitor to Facebook. Twitter just hasn't risen to the occassion since its founding, but now is the time for them to realize what they have.
