Airbnb stock, is it a buy?

Long
NASDAQ:ABNB   Airbnb, Inc
Who doesn't know AirBnB? Airbnb , Inc. , operates a platform for stays and experiences to guests worldwide. The company's marketplace model connects hosts and guests online or through mobile devices to book spaces and experiences. It primarily offers private rooms and luxury villas. The company was formerly known as AirBed & Breakfast, Inc. and changed its name to Airbnb , Inc. in November 2010.

On March 11 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak of coronavirus, known as COVID-19, to be a global pandemic. Since then, the outbreak has evolved rapidly, with governments worldwide taking swift action to slow the spread of COVID-19. Airbnb was affected by this declaration because that meant that his business model would suffer tremendously as travelling around the world would come to a halt. No tourists = no income. At the time, Airbnb was not traded publicly. It was not until last December 2020 when Airbnb IPO happened and created the only imbalance available on the monthly timeframe , around 146 dollars per share.

The meteoric rise of Airbnb across cities since its introduction in 2008 has disrupted the housing markets of major cities worldwide. Some studies demonstrate the increasing trend in rental and property prices that parallels increasing Airbnb activity.

The COVID-19 pandemic presents a unique case study of this stock. Amid growing concern over how the delta variant of Covid-19 could affect people's travel plans, Airbnb (ABNB) endured another month with monthly demand in control. Why? Because the revenue model of Airbnb is founded on is under significant pressure with the halting of global travel. Regardless of any negative impact that COVID-19 may have had on Airbnb , imbalances are created and usually created when there is a trending market unless there is over-extension. Airbnb shares may have dropped after investor worries about the impact of Delta variant on travel overshadowed the online rental company's second-quarter results. Yet, that report didn't do much with the monthly imbalance taking control around $146.

I hold shares of this monster business that will probably become the Amazon of online accommodation reservations.
