Spotify: The $50 Billion Music Streaming Service Increased by 90% Year-To-Date

This analysis allows to assign a score (BD-score) to the company by analyzing all its most important areas. From the analysis of fundamentals to the ability to outperform the market. Everything is summarized in an easy-to-read score.

The BD-score is based on a weighted assignment of 260 points based on the importance of the following 3 areas:

  • Financials
  • Performance
  • EPS / Analysts Expectations

The BD-score ranges from 0% to 100% and a score above + 70% is considered excellent.

Explaining the assignment of each individual score would be impossible within a single article, so to understand the logic of assigning the scores, below are the characteristics that a company must possess in order to obtain the maximum BD-score (+ 100%) :

  • all key business data must grow steadily and at high growth rates (Revenue, EBITDA, Free-Cash-Flow etc.)
  • must operate with high business margins (EBITDA margin, Net Margin etc.) and must be constantly improving
  • must clearly outperform the market (S&P 500)
  • must be in a positive short, medium and long term trend
  • must always destroy analysts’ expectations in terms of EPS (Earnings-Per-Share) and the stock price must react strongly positively
  • analysts must expect strong EPS (Earnings-Per-Share) growth in the next quarter

Before analyzing the individual areas specifically, there is a summary containing the key data (and BD-scores) of all the areas.
