Should you get a Life ... 360?

I was recently introduced to an app called Life360, which is designed for family and friends to share their location. One of the cool features of this app is that it allows family members to track how fast people are driving and to call for assistance if someone is in an accident.

While the app is free, it also has some additional features, which subscribers pay for. When I investigated this company, I found it was headquartered in San Francisco but it had listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in May 2019.

During the IPO, it raised $112.7 million by issuing 23.5 million new chess depositary interests (CDIs) at $4.79 each, as CDIs allow a non-Australian company to list their shares on the ASX. The company began trading on 10 May 2019 but like most IPOs, it traded down in price and by 23 March 2020 it had fallen over 70 per cent to $1.51.

Over the last 12 months, however, Life360 has achieved 20 per cent revenue growth year on year despite COVID-19, which has seen its share price rise over 300 per cent to a new all-time high this week of $6.49 with many analysts promoting the stock as a strong buy.

While I like the look of this stock and believe it has the potential to rise further, I think most of the rise has already occurred, at least in the short term.

That said, over the longer-term this stock looks attractive, as it is in the technology sector and has a broad international client base paying monthly fees, so subscribers can have peace of mind not only knowing where their loved ones are but that they are safe, which means their likely to be very loyal long-term users.
