Trustpilot (LSE: TRST) shares have made their debut on the London stock market through an initial public offering (IPO). It follows a flurry of tech companies flocking to London to float.In fact, I highlighted Trustpilot’s IPO as one to look out for in December. Now that the shares are live, the question I ask myself is should I buy the stock? For now, I’m holding fire but here are my views on the company.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Trustpilot: an overviewTrust is an important factor in all commerce. That’s the concept behind Trustpilot. It’s a global, independent review platform that allows consumers to write reviews for almost any type of business.In a nutshell, Trustpilot attempts to fill the trust gap between consumers and businesses. Consumers provide feedback about a product or service and the business can gain insights on how to improve.Trustpilot was founded in 2007 by CEO Peter Mühlmann in a Danish garage. Since then, the company has morphed into a global superstar. Trustpilot now has 120m consumer reviews and almost 20,000 paying businesses on its platform.What I like about the company is that there’s a review on just about everything. I’ll always check Trustpilot to see what others are saying about a particular service or product before I dip my toe in. For me, it provides an independent layer of trust.The business modelSo how does Trustpilot make money? Well, it uses the freemium business model. Any business can use Trustpilot’s basic services for free. This includes seeing and responding to consumer reviews.But in order to get access to the useful information such as data analytics, Trustpilot offers several paid subscription modules for businesses. These increase in levels of functionality and are provided on a software-as-a-service (or SaaS) basis.I like that Trustpilot makes money through recurring subscriptions. It offers some degree of revenue visibility and stability.Growth plansIt’s nice to see that Trustpilot’s mission is to become a universal symbol of trust. But it’s going to need money to do that. So the funds raised from the IPO will be used to fuel Trust pilot’s growth plans.It intends to offer new products and services especially using artificial intelligence. There will be a focus on increasing the number of paying businesses as well as entering new industries and product sectors.My viewI like Trustpilot’s business and it’s pleasing to see another tech company join the London scene. It gives me more to choose from. While the company’s revenue is growing, it’s still unprofitable. In 2020, Trustpilot generated $102m in sales but made a $12m loss.I’m not surprised the company decided to IPO. During the pandemic, many consumers have been shopping online and hence Trustpilot has seen its business expand. It makes sense to come to market on a high. But I typically don’t buy on or straight after an IPO due to the lack of transparency. The IPO prospectus may be over 200 pages in length, but it doesn’t provide me with much information.As a public company, Trustpilot will provide regular trading updates. This means that there should be more details to base my research on. But for now, I’ll only be watching Trustpilot shares.

Monica Moorehead, Workers World Party presidential candidate, and Colin Ashby, People’s Power Assembly organizer at Trans Day of Action. The 12th annual Trans Day of Action was held in New York City’s Washington Square Park on June 24. The major theme of this action, sponsored by the Audre Lorde Project, was “Uplifting the resilient legacy of TGNC [transgender, non-conforming] community power!” An estimated 2,000 people, mainly queer youth of all nationalities and their allies, took to streets in Greenwich Village following a short rally.At this Trans Day of Action, less than two weeks since the tragic June 12 Orlando shootings, many carried signs with a strong Orlando theme. The ALP issued a statement on June 15 with these opening paragraphs: “We at the Audre Lorde Project are devastated by the massacre at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando which resulted in the murder of 49 queer and trans people (the majority of whom are Black, Latinx, and/or Afrolatinx), including Enrique Rios from Brooklyn. We send our deepest condolences to all of the families, lovers, and friends of the victims and all of the Southern queer and trans organizers who continue to fight for liberation in their name. We are with you in solidarity. We are constantly reminded that there is no separation from our need to heal and our need to organize for our continued survival. We need each other now more than ever.“Our community in New York City is struggling today as we reconcile with the constant reality that we are considered disposable by a racist, transmisogynist, Islamophobic, and xenophobic country. From our experiences on the ground as an organizing center for and by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Two Spirit, and Gender Non Conforming People of Color (LGBTSTGNC POC) we know that this massacre is not the exception, it is part of the economy of violence against LGBTSTGNC, Black people & People of Color, Indigenous people, and immigrants. It makes explicit what the institutions of war, prisons, detention centers, and the police teach our communities every day: that we were never meant to survive.”Go to the ALP website at tinyurl.com/h3w4zy8 to read the entire statement.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Photo Gallery Maranatha Students Go to the Mountains for Annual Spiritual Life Retreat STAFF REPORTS Published on Thursday, January 30, 2014 | 1:30 pm Over the Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend, over 290 students, staff, and pastors recently attended Maranatha High Schoolâ€™s annual Spiritual Life Retreat at Camp Cedar Crest in the San Bernardino Mountains. The weekend was packed with intentional community and faith building activities. Students enjoyed four key chapel sessions led by one of their favorite speakers, Pastor Brian Holland of Pomona First Baptist. Students entered into each session with worship led by a full worship band from The Gathering, a missional Church located in Azusa. Group games, led by student emcee Noah Daniels, helped the students from varying grades get to know each other and build community.Games ranged from cracking eggs on each otherâ€™s heads, to full contact musical chairs, eating a variety of disgusting food items, and a lively talent show.Â An extra time of connection in small groups, led by Student Ministry Team members, not only helped solidify the teachings, but continued to develop community and provide more time to process. A variety of local youth pastors were on hand from Lake Avenue Church, Fellowship Monrovia, Foothill Community Church, Sunrise L.A. Church, and Pomona First Baptist to give students an opportunity to connect with a local church.In addition, the youth pastors led several optional seminars during the afternoon on worship, prayer, and community. Since the retreat, many students have commented about a renewed sense of joy and commitment to their faith.

In what is being widely viewed as his last testimony as Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), Melvin Watt appeared before the Senate Banking Committee to appraise them on the status of the housing finance system on Wednesday.Setting the tone of the hearing titled “Ten Years of Conservatorship: The Status of the Housing Finance System” Sen. Mike Crapo, Chairman of the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee said that housing finance reforms remained one of his top priorities as Chairman of the committee. “The status quo is not a viable option. The government plays too big a role in the mortgage market today,” Crapo said in his opening remarks.Speaking about the recent programs of the GSEs, Crapo said that over the past couple of years FHFA, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac had all been busy. “Both enterprises have experimented with pilot programs that allow certain lenders to sell loans with 1 percent or even 0 percent down; Additionally Fannie and Freddie have continued to expand into other markets, such as single-family rentals,” Crapo said. “I also appreciate that Fannie’s and Freddie’s underwriting standards remain tighter than they were at the peak of the housing boom.”Despite this progress, Crapo said that the overall trends that leaned towards greater taxpayer risk and greater government presence in the mortgage market were a concern and “further demonstrate the need for Congress to turn to housing finance reform expeditiously.”Speaking on FHFA’s role as the conservator the GSEs, Watt said that FHFA’s role was unprecedented in “its scope, complexity, and duration especially when you consider Fannie and Freddie Mac’s role in supporting over $5 trillion in mortgage loans and guarantees. This is an extraordinary role for a regulatory agency also because we are obligated to fulfill both the role of supervisor and conservator at the same time.”“I have expressed this opinion, perhaps using different words on numerous occasions since then. I have also expressed repeatedly my firm belief that these conservatorships are unsustainable,” Watt told the committee adding that it was the prerogative and responsibility of Congress, not FHFA, to decide on housing finance reform.Speaking about the challenges that were compounded by conservatorship, Watt said that one of the challenges was the ability to plan and manage in the face of uncertainty about the future. “Our experience as conservator confirms that it is extremely difficult to manage the Enterprises in the present without establishing some kind of plans for the future.”Ensuring market discipline was another challenge that Watt outlined during the hearing. “Because the Enterprises have been insulated while operating in conservatorship from normal market forces that would otherwise inform their operations and business decisions, FHFA has had the responsibility for creating its own regime for market discipline,” he told the committee. FHFA had taken several steps to address this challenge, the most important one being “to require the Enterprises to use an aligned capital framework when evaluating business decisions even though they were not able to build capital beyond the limited buffer agreed,” Watt said.
