Rent.com shares made Investors 686% in just two short weeks! This was in February where we covered this substantial unique event and examined what caused this. Today we’re taking another look into RNT and asking Should I Buy RNT Shares in 2021?
Rent.com has been an impressive stock surrounded by a lot of hype in the past few years. It’s easy to see why! They offer an impressive platform. “In Australia, the two most likely places people will look for their new dream home are online residential property marketplaces realestate.com.au and domain.com.au. And these platforms are operated by none other than ASX shares REA Group Limited and Domain Holdings Australia Ltd respectively” Mitchell Lawyer.
How did RNT Shares nearly 8x Investor’s money?
The two weeks of massive gains averaging 45.7% a day occurred in February following a massive $2.75 million investment from tech entrepreneur Bevan Slattery. Technology Mogul Bevan Slattery took part in a strategic placement of RNT.ASX shares on the 2nd Feb 2021, Bev snapped up a total of 40million shares at $0.05/share a cool $2.75 million.
Bevan could also be known for his previous investment in Pointerra (3DP.ASX) which is eerily similar to the recent Rent.com purchase for 2.5million shares at 5c a share. Giving a total of $2.5million worth.
“I love disruptive platforms that have the ability to scale and rent.com.au has great potential to achieve that goal. I look forward to supporting the board and management team and am excited to be backing another innovative Australian technology platform”Bevan Slattery
So how has Pointerra Performed?
Following Bevan’s strategic placement at 5c on the 14th of July 2020, the stock price has, for lack of a better phrase, went to the moon. Then trading currently at $0.77. This represents an increase of 1,440%. Today they are still up massively at 50c.
Pointerra Growth Before and After the Placement
|Q Before Placement|
|Q After Placement|
|Net Cash Used In Operating||-$333k||-$231k|
|Cash & Equivelents||$2.9million||$4.5million|
As you can see there has been no material change in the cash receipts generated Quarter on Quarter similar to the cash used in operating activities.
What about Rent.Com Stat’s?
|Q Before Placement(29 Jan 2021)||Q After Placement(30 April 2021)|
|Net Cash Used In Operating||-133k||-201k|
|Cash and Equivalents||$1.8million||$1.8million|
Again there has been no real material changes between the quarters.
RNT Shares: Rent Pay Annoucement
On the 6th of May Rent.com launched its RentPay platform to the public. RentPay is a platform of services rather than a single product. RentPay gives the renter flexibility, support, and improved financial wellbeing while agents and landlords receive their rent quickly and reliably.
In a nutshell, this platform is designed to help renters pay rent on time and manage their rental money reasonably. Which obviously benefits the agents. To us, this seems bulky and counterintuitive to just paying rent when it’s due. However, we are yet to see how it is adopted into the market long term.
RentPay First 30 Days Update:
- Overwhelmingly positive customer feedback (4.9 rating in both Google and Apple stores).
- 2,400 downloads of the app to date, in line with expectations for this phase.
- Initial optimisation phase coming to an end, marketing efforts to be expanded.
- Former New York based brand strategy director, Hayley Parker, appointed to lead marketing.
