Morning Preview: The GrubHub IPO, a Momo-evacuation, and Micron Earnings

1.) The GrubHub IPO ($GRUB) is happening today. They are raising $192 million at a valuation of $2 billion. That valuation is 15x last year’s revenue. Granted, GrubHub has a huge first mover advantage with 28,800 restaurants connected to its app in 600 different cities. How do you think $GRUB will trade today?:

At the IPO price, Grubhub will have a valuation of about $2B. Or almost 15x last year’s revenue $GRUB

2.) Since the start of March, momentum names across the entire market have been getting crushed. Stocks like FireEye ($FEYE), Yelp ($YELP), Workday ($WDAY), and Splunk ($SPLK) are all down more than 20%. In yesterday’s market wrap we wrote a blog post that talked about this underlying weakness. On StockTwits, we’ve been seeing messages and charts like this on a near minute-by-minute basis. It has even been called a ‘momo-evacuation’:

$FEYE so glad i sold this morning and until this crazy momovacuation subsides I'll be on the sidelines

Momo stocks under pressure again. $WDAY is back to a level of potential support + it's oversold.

Today is the day we've been waiting for. If you have a favorite momo name that has been crushed, buy a little today. $YELP $FEYE $SPLK $FB

3.) Micron ($MU) jumped 4% yesterday after reporting better than expected earnings. It’s also now nearing its all-time high of $25.68/share. Micron has been trending on StockTwits since it reported earnings. Message volume about the stock is up over 1,000 messages and sentiment currently stands at an incredible 97% bulls vs 3% bears:

$MU just did something unusual. It reported EPS for its Feb Q of $0.85 topping RAISED not lowered estimates of $0.76 ($0.53 90 days ago)
