    Overall, Roku insiders own 0.7 percent of shares.

    The TV streaming platform has traded flat over the past year, against a 30 percent rise in the S&P 500 index.

    Roku lost money last year, but revenues did rise by 13 percent.

  • Plus, Roku has over $2 billion in cash on the balance sheet, which can allow it to continue to operate without having to issue shares or increase debt.

    Action to take: Shares are down significantly from their 2021 highs, and look ready to make a long-term trend higher after forming a base.

    Long-term investors may like shares now, but if the downtrend resumes, look to get out of shares.

    For traders, the September $80 calls, last going for about $6.75, could see mid-double-digit returns on a push higher in the coming months. Traders should look to take quick profits on any jump higher in shares.
