Why does Roblox grow rapidly during the pandemic of Covid-19? As a massive kids’ online game platform, Roblox has apparently benefited a lot during the pandemic. Roblox, mostly favored by kids, can be one of the best-sellings apps on Google Play Store and Apple.
Roblox is entering a market stemming from years of explosive growth, particularly from children stuck at home due to the Covid-19 pandemic which forced schools to close and sports leagues closed.
In Roblox, the users create avatars which they can move between the millions of games on the service, adopt virtual pets, navigate amusement parks and also fight enemies with their friends. That’s so interesting, isn’t it?
NYSE set a reference price at $45 even though no stock changes hands at those levels. However, the reference price here tends to reflect private market trading which does not point where a stock will open.

How Is the Roblox Stock Growth?
In fact, Roblox stock is ever falling down in March. It may be caused by investors who continued to bid higher stock prices and Roblox reached a high of $77 on March 16, 2021. With the fall of these shares, shareholders were worried because since then Roblox’s shares have decreased by almost 13%. In this case the investor will probably reassess the valuation of a rich stock.
Even now, those stocks are trading at around 50% higher than its IPO price. Of course, the future decline in stock price cannot be taken lightly as the initial enthusiasm for the stock getting fades.
The Roblox stock closed at $69.50 each, giving the company a market capitalizationof $38.26 billion. In a January funding round, the Roblox company was last valued in the private market at $29.5 billion.
Roblox stock starts trading at $ 64.50 which represents a 43% increase over the private financing round in January when the company sold the stock for $ 45. NYSE set a reference price at $4 even though no stock changes hands at those levels. However, the reference price here tends to reflect private market trading which does not point where a stock will open.
See the chart above, the stock analyst estimates that Roblox’s stock will reach $85 per stock. However, Roblox is a very difficult company to judge as none knows what will happen when the schools reopen and the kids get back to play with their friends in their real-life.
In fact, Roblox’s company primarily relies on kids spending their parents’ money as the game has added a bunch of content for an older audience including meetings and educational experience and also virtual concerts. From the facts, Roblox is predicting rapid growth in 2021.
Of course, if we see the chart of Roblox stock forecast, Roblox Stock is actually predicted to be higher especially in 2021. But it is also possible that Roblox shares will fall if schools start to reopen where numerous kids will play with their real-friends in the school yard.
