APP was recently added to the S&P MidCap 400 index, spurring a double-digit percentage increase in its share price. The addition of APPS to the index will spur an influx of cash from ETFs as they add shares to align their holdings with the performance of the index. However, this spike in demand for APPS shares does not guarantee it will continue to soar. Plenty of investors will not hesitate to take their profit off the table, locking in gains and shifting the risk to ETFs and retail investors who missed the APPS boat.

If APPS’ executives are correct, the company will rake in more than $300 million in revenue, representing a 40% increase from the initial quarter. This level of revenue also equates to a 300% spike on a year-over-year basis. The bottom line is APPS’ business is growing and the company’s brass deserves credit for its strategic acquisitions. All in all, APPS has acquired more than half a dozen companies.

The announcement was music to APPS’ executives’ and investors’ ears as the company strategically planned for such a requirement in preceding years.
