Here is what Blue Hawk Investment Group has to say about Pinterest, Inc. in their Q4 2020 investor letter:

“We posted a presentation we put together on the Pinterest investment case on our website here. We provide the executive summary here, and please follow the link to see the investment case in depth.

1. PINS offers some of the most valuable real estate for e-commerce advertising in the world – consumers with high purchase intent searching for inspiration/ideas prior to making up their minds, meaning they can be influenced (aka true digital shopping).

2. Previously focusing on the user experience and user growth, the company has begun its transition to the next step in the social media roadmap – building out the business side of the equation and developing tools to ramp up monetization. The current focus is advertiser self-service, tools to demonstrate advertising ROI, and partnerships to improve and increase clickable inventory.

3. We are in the early days for PINS monetization, as the site has become a massive lead generation engine for SMBs and large CPGs alike, touching all stages of the marketing funnel.”
