Options let you lock in a good price on a stock without actually buying it – here's how options trading works
An option is a contract giving you the right but not the obligation to buy or sell an asset at a specific price before a specific date. If the asset doesn't perform as hoped, the option just expires; you're only out the small premium you paid for it. Though low-risk, options do incur costs, and require careful timing and market-watching to succeed. Visit Business Insider's Investing Reference library for more stories .

Since the company had switched to the subscription model, which is much more successful in the industry, before the IPO in autumn 2019, the growth in reported sales is currently below that of billings.

One of Uber's earliest investors says the billions it spent on self-driving were a 'waste of money'
Early Uber investor Bill Gurley said the company "burned" billions of dollars on self-driving tech. That money would have been better spend on food delivery, he told journalist Eric Newcomer.

Last year the adjusted Ebitda increased by 44 percent to 261 million euros. The bottom line was that TeamViewer earned 102 million euros, slightly less than a year ago - the main reason for this was significantly higher tax payments. With the 2020 figures, the company was slightly below the experts' expectations in terms of sales. The operating result, on the other hand, was slightly better than forecast.
The forecast for 2021 looks similar. The margin forecast is above what experts are currently assuming. The sales forecast, however, is slightly below the current average estimate. After a slight gain at the beginning of trading, the stock quickly turned into the red. However, the paper had recently recovered significantly from the price kink in the autumn as a result of a further placement by the former owner Permira and investor concerns about the sustainability of growth.

After an increase of more than two percent in early XETRA trading, the shares of TeamViewer turned negative on Tuesday. Most recently, this was just under two percent to 44.94 euros. A trader pointed out that the price failed at the daily high of 46.88 euros because of a resistance zone at 46 to 47 euros. Upward movements ended at this level last year and at the beginning of this year.
Contrary to expectations, the company has issued new medium-term forecasts, wrote analyst James Goodman fromBank. This amounted to an average growth of 30 percent over the next three years. It should now be exciting to see whether this growth target can be achieved on our own. TeamViewer wrote of "selected smaller acquisitions".
DZ Bank analyst Armin Kremser rated the outlook as convincing. The billing target of one billion euros a year means annual growth of almost exactly 30 percent.
