What did the broker say?
Morgan Stanley believes that Life360 is well-placed to accelerate its growth. This is thanks to the high level of COVID-19 vaccinations, re-openings, and the return to normal schooling. This is expected to support demand for subscriptions for its family safety app, which provides users with solutions such as location sharing, driving safety, and messaging.
In addition to this, the broker believes its recent highly successful marketing campaign on TikTok will increase brand engagement and downloads. Morgan Stanley suspects that this success will allow the company to spend more on customer acquisition while still meeting its guidance for a loss no greater than US$15 million in FY 2021.
