Nextdoor spends way too much on research and development. That expense alone is 68% of gross profit, which stands at 83%. In other words, Nextdoor needs new management because it should be profitable. Market capitalization around $900 million, with a net cash position approaching $550 million, investors are really paying just $250 million for the entire business. That is roughly 1.1 times annual revenue or 0.40 times tangible book value. Someone is going to figure this one out and there’s plenty of runway before the company does.
