Roku IPO: Shares jump 68% as investors bet the firm can fend off Amazon, Apple and Google

Analysts say Roku has shown great upside by diversifying its revenue away from chiefly hardware to partnerships and advertising over its platform.

“Over the past two-and-a-half years, Roku has expanded their product lines, evolved their platform business with smart-TV makers, and continued to build out its advertising business,” said Brett Sappington, director of research of at consulting firm Parks Associates. “A platform-based approach and their advertising business will be keys to their future revenues and success.”
