I am investigating 'stay at home plays' that have yet to report on calendar Q3 recoveries from the Q2 when we were all glum and in lockdown.

While I am not a big user myself, Pinterest caught my eye as a potential play on this theme and it has, by the look of the financials, a relatively fixed cost base that would benefit from any uplift in activity.

A broker published a graph on the US and international Pinterest downloads growth last week. What struck me was the pick up in growth - particularly outside of the US.

From what I can see in terms of existing estimates, the current year should also mark a move into positive free cash flow generation.

Q3 numbers are due on Wednesday the 28th October after the US market closes. There is a conference call at 9.30pm London time.
