Battle Of The Stocks: Yelp Vs GrubHub



In this edition of Battle Of The Stocks, we look at two stocks in the online food delivery and reservation business, Yelp [YELP] and GrubHub [GRUB]. While Yelp has well over a million restaurants on its website, GrubHub is an established online ordering service.

The two companies are an online ordering platform that connects diners with restaurants. Here, we look at which stock is a better buy at current levels.

Market Cap

Driven by the massive increase in share prices, the market cap of Yelp and GrubHub have grown significantly since the start of 2016.

Shares of Yelp are trading flat this year driven by a 15% decline in Oct. 2018. The stock is however up 70% in the last 3 years and 50% in the last 18 months.

Comparatively, the GrubHub stock has gained over 250% since 2015 and 100% in the last 18 months. Despite a 36% decline in Oct., the stock is up 24% this year, easily beating returns of major indices.

This staggering climb in value resulted in billion-dollar valuations for the two companies. Yelp’s market cap is currently $3.5B while GrubHub’s market cap is higher at $8.1B.

However past returns are not an indicator of future price movements.

Revenue Growth

Revenue growth is a key indicator to gauge the financial position of any company. Any firm that can grow its revenue at a robust rate will be worth investing in.

Yelp reported sales of $844M last year and it’s estimated to rise 14% to $963M this year. Analysts expect its revenue to grow 18% to a robust $1.14B in 2019.

GrubHub, on the other hand, reported sales of $680M last year and analysts expect its revenue to grow 34% to $1.4B.



The profit margins of these online ordering portals have expanded, driven by a rise in revenue and operating efficiencies. While Yelp’s operating margin is estimated at 2.8% this year, it’s expected to be 5.4% next year.

GrubHub, however, sees the operating margin at an estimated 18.7% for the current fiscal, while it’s expected to be 18.5% next year


Earnings Growth

While the two companies are looking to improve profit margins, analysts and investors are concerned over the earnings growth potential.

Analysts expect Yelp’s earnings per share (EPS) to grow 21% over the next 5 years. Comparatively, analysts expect GrubHub’s earnings to rise 27% over the same period.


Analyst Recommendation

We have looked at key financial metrics for the two stocks. Let’s see what Wall Street analysts expect from the companies. Analysts have a 12-month average target price of $51.22 for Yelp, indicating an upside potential of 23%.

Comparatively, analysts expect GrubHub’s share price to rise to $296.94, providing an upside potential of 41% over the next year.


It looks like GrubHub is a clear winner in this race. GrubHub is a better bet considering its profit margins and revenue and earnings growth rate. GrubHub also holds an edge due to a larger footprint and a solid reputation for customer service.

The food delivery segment is a high growth one with both companies looking to upstage the other and gain market share. We can see above that the domestic food delivery market is estimated to grow from $23.74B in 2016 to almost $40B in 2021.

Wealthlab Verdict: GrubHub (4-0)


How Big Real Estate Moguls Avoid Taxes (And How You Can, Too) 👀



I was looking around Google for an old article on tax strategies and this five-year old video of myself happened to pop up.

I’m interviewing a tax expert about how real estate investors avoid paying taxes in perpetuity—AND how everyday citizens can do the same thing.

(Real estate—our TEMPLE I and TEMPLE II projects included—has a number of tax benefits savvy investors have capitalized on for years, including Opportunity Zone breaks and 10-year tax abatements.)

There’s the 1031 exchange, of course, which I’ve shared with you guys before. 

Just to refresh your memory, the 1031 Exchange allows you to roll over gains from your last project into a new property TAX FREE—as long as said property is worth the same or more.

But there’s ANOTHER TAX LOOPHOLE that can take your portfolio to an entirely new level by splitting your capital gains into MULTIPLE properties.

So I thought I’d share it with you guys. 💎

You can check it out here.

Let me know what you think. 😎

PS: In our next update, I’m going to break down how real estate moguls get paid from their properties…tax free. 👀

How I run a $300M+ business from the beach…(and how you can TOO!)



Yes, you read that right.

If there’s anything the pandemic taught us, it’s that the paradigm of “office” and “workspace” has been shaken to its CORE.

Universities are teaching via Zoom, court dates are done virtually, FULLY REMOTE businesses are valued at $1B+, and legitimate Inc. 5000 startups are run from…wherever. 📲

This is my office for the day…

I am actually running our business from the beach, typing this from here.

It’s 4:28 pm CET, which means it’s 10:28 am EST and I am CRUSHING my to-do list.

(And the team will continue to crush it while I’m asleep. That’s the 🗝)

So how did we get here? 

We launched NYCE and our mission to create 100,000 millionaires in March, 2020…just as the global COVID-19 lockdown happened. 😳

As a result, we shut down our main office and set EVERYTHING up to run remotely…

SMOOTHLY! And a system that allows us to outperform competition by 200%. (You can build this system, too. More on this in a second.)

Here’s what we were able to do since then:

  • Gained 6M+ followers across all platforms 📈
  • Add 1500+ new apartments to the portfolio 🤑
  • Grow to $300M in real estate 🚀
  • 105% investor returns 🎉
  • 700K+ community members 🤝

And here’s the best part…

Having team members in all the main time zones gives us a 24-hour work cycle vs. 9-5/eight-hour on-the-clock performance.

This means we get 3x the productivity of a similar company. 🔥

Let me repeat that…3x PRODUCTIVITY vs. our competitors.

Meanwhile our project management software grants us 24-hour TEAM-WIDE connectivity that tracks all tasks and lets us know if productivity dips even a little bit.

There is ALWAYS someone senior awake. It could be Martin in Barcelona…Nat in New York…Vineet & Arif in New Delhi.

All the while giving YOU GUYS wealth hacks and daily content. 🔥

OK, so how can you do it?!

Well, the first step is to have an actual side hustle you’re launching. Not just an idea, a validated business.

MAJOR KEY: Do NOT spend money until you’ve made your FIRST DOLLAR! 🗝🗝🗝🗝

(You can catch a replay Business Launch masterclass here and see TRIBE member Nessa launched her business on the spot and got her first $45K client shortly after.)

One of the easiest ways to start is with Airbnb—you can start that in 10 minutes. Literally. (Here’s a guide if you need it.)

Once you have your business, you build a virtual infrastructure (you really just need two softwares, which are FREE), manage the team accordingly and run the business from there.

I’m gonna put together a step-by-step video breakdown this weekend inside the new TRIBE U on the FIVE key things you need to do this for YOURSELF. 💵 💎

From what software to use, how to build a team, how to keep.

In the meantime, drop a comment if you’re ready to build some wealth and any questions if you want more…

Let’s get to work. 🙌

PS: If you can’t be bothered with video and just wanna get to work, we’re hosting a TRIBE U workshop that will help you get this process started on the spot. It’s $479 $49. 🔥
