Investors love companies with a recurring revenue model. Rather than selling a one-off product like a refrigerator or car, selling a monthly subscription to, say, a streaming service creates steadier cash flows.
That kind of steady growth is why any company with a subscription service reports their growth numbers. It’s also why they’re on the lookout for ways to increase the number of loyal subscribers as well.
In the e-commerce world, Amazon (AMZN) came to dominate thanks to the use of free shipping on orders over $25. Once they started Amazon Prime, however, those who paid $99 per year got free shipping on everything.

“Old school” folks might be skeptical of listening to financial advice from someone
half their age, but this stock whiz beat out 15,000 experts to claim #1 title.
That’s a playbook that Walmart (WMT) is clearly following closely. The retail giant has waived its $35 minimum on nonfood items for its Walmart+ members.
With the retailer already expanding its plans to surpass Amazon in online retailing, a rise in Walmart+ subscribers this holiday season will likely continue into 2021 and beyond. That suggests that shares will continue to trend higher from here, already just below all-time highs.
Action to take: The March 2021 $150 calls are about $1 in-the-money. Trading for around $8.00, or $800 per contract, traders can bet on a rise of 100 shares for far less than buying them outright. As the holiday season unfolds, expect shares to move higher.
Traders should look for mid-to-high double-digit returns, likely stemming from early holiday numbers out of the company later in the month.
