Spotify (NYSE:SPOT) revealed a new version of its mobile app on Tuesday, offering a lot more features for free listeners. The music streaming leader had about 90 million free listeners as of the end of the year, and the majority of its listening hours occur on mobile.
Previously, free users were unable to select songs on demand on mobile, with Spotify requiring them to shuffle through playlists and artists’ catalogs or use its radio feature. The new app will allow free users to play select songs and playlists on demand based on their listening habits. It will also enable mobile users to more easily create new playlists, and encourage users to tell Spotify more about their listening preferences.
Playlists and personalization data are, by far, Spotify’s biggest advantages over competing services like Pandora (NYSE:P). Extending additional functionality to mobile users — where free users spend the majority of their time on Spotify — will help extend that advantage.
But it could come at a cost.

Sandstorm’s due diligence is thorough, they don’t just invest in any company. They like West Africa because they understand the area and the opportunities that exist there. Sandstorm is a royalty and streaming company, so they make these investments and receive cashflow deals that often kick in much later on. But they have already established a presence in Burkina and have deals in place with larger companies like Orezone Gold (TSXV: ORE) and Endeavour Mining (TSX: EDV). Sandstorm’s investment also potentially gives us access to their marketing department through something they call Launch Lab, and it looks like it will really benefit our own marketing efforts and will expose us to more opportunities over the coming year.

Sure, I will invest more in certain high-confidence picks than others, but without going overboard. This might limit the overall impact that a triple-digit winner makes in my High-Yield Investing portfolio — like the 156% gain we made on CME Group (Nasdaq: CME) when we sold in May 2018 — but it will also soften the blow from a laggard.

Investors looking to make money on China should pay attention. While the United States is focusing this week on resolving issues with North Korea, the real elephant in the room remains China. President Trump has extended the artificial March 1 deadline on tariffs in hopes of striking a deal with the world’s second largest economy.
