ARK Assets

Following an impressive 140% rise in 2020, Teladoc’s (NYSE 🙂 shares gained as much as 54% in a notka at the beginning of 2021, and a subsequent decline in rallying companies during the COVID-19 outbreak would add to the company’s rise. amount braked.

TDOC stock closed Tuesday at $ 217.92, about 30% below its historic high of $ 308.00 on February 16. In current valuations, Purchase, the New York-based telehealth pioneer, has a market value of $ 32.5 billion.

  • Weight: 1.15%

The San Francisco, California-based company recorded an adjusted loss of $ 0.10 per share in the last three months of 2020. Revenue grew 39% year over year to $ 220.3 million, reflecting the increase in demand for the platform.

Unity expects revenue of approximately $ 960 million for the full year 2021, which means that growth will slow significantly to 24% after a sales growth of 43% in 2020.

Unity Software’s stock is still an attractive option, thanks to strong demand for the company’s game and digital content creation platform.
