What does Pinterest do?

In the company’s own words, “Pinterest is the productivity tool for planning your dreams.”

Pinterest, Inc. operates an image-based social media network that allows users to find, save and organise images and videos that inspire them. 

On Pinterest, users seek inspiration for daily activities such as cooking or deciding what to wear; for major commitments such as marathon training; for ongoing passions such as gardening; or even milestone events such as weddings.

The Pinterest network utilises visual machine learning to understand a user’s tastes and interests in order to make recommendations and keep them engaged.

Pinterest was founded in 2008 by Ben Silbermann, Paul Sciarra, and Evan Sharp. The company is currently headquartered in San Francisco, California.

How does Pinterest make money?

Pinterest makes money via advertising through its website and mobile app. The company reports all revenue in a single segment.

Advertising is visually integrated into the platform’s interface so ads look just like any other user-generated content. A “buy it” button is integrated into ads allowing users to buy directly through Pinterest rather than on third-party websites.

Pinterest offers advertisers a variety of formats including:

  • Standard ads (static images)

  • Video ads (used to tell engaging stories)

  • Carousel ads (where advertisers can showcase more than one image or video at a time)

  • Shopping ads (similar to static ads but exclusive to advertisers who upload product catalogues)

Pinterest has cited the improvement of existing ad formats and the development of new ones as a driver of future growth.

Is Pinterest a profitable company?

Pinterest became profitable in FY2021.

Prior to FY2021, the company’s profits had been in negative territory since FY2017. However, the company’s FY2021 financials showed a positive net income of US$316m, a 365% leap up from the previous year’s net income of negative US$128m.

The company is currently healthy with no debt and a free cash flow of US$744m.

Is PINS stock a buy?

Some investors believe this is a good time to buy as the company recently became profitable. Pinterest is also healthy with ample cash to seek out or create new growth opportunities.

Other investors don’t feel as bullish, dismissing the all time high of Pinterest's stock price as a beneficiary of COVID-19 and just a “pandemic play.” These investors are also wary of the fact the company’s monthly active users dropped from 459m to 431m throughout FY2021 – a 6% decrease over 12 months.
