There are a lot of reasons we love to invest in subscription businesses and high on that list is the recurring revenue model. The Wall Street Journal reports that streaming-video services are losing half of their new subscribers after just a few months. Jason Moser analyzes the challenges of the consumer-facing subscription model and how services like Netflix, Apple+, HBO Max, Disney+ and others are combatting them (to varying levels of success). He also responds to a Motley Fool member's question about whether to focus on buying shares of larger, profitable businesses at the expense of currently-unprofitable companies with potential. Plus, John Rotonti and Jim Gillies discuss value investing and a sleeping tech giant that appears to be getting back on track.
