As someone mentioned above, it's important to have strong revenues, because if that arrow starts going down your business will too. There are few factors that can have a negative influence on your business and overall cash-flow. Maybe trying to get a good analysis to help figure out what exactly is the issue is the best solution. What is highlighted on DealRoom, for example, is that without proper analysis and maybe software that helps find the cause of the problem within the team, it is always shooting in the dark.

Suggest you study product. Is it something people need/want for the long haul.

Some of the companies going public offer stuff that appears to be fad. I would not want to hitch my horse to that wagon.

A company may run at losses for extended times if they are chasing growth (e.g. Amazon). If you see a CAGR on topline say 1.5 - 2.0X market growth then that is still a legitimate play. If topline is stagnating and they continue to have regular losses then avoid at all costs.

A lot goes into a decision by savvy investors who invest huge chunks of money. If they perceive that the company is being run well and has good fiscal management but it is still developing its markets, they may feel like they are getting in early on a good thing. You need to look at the fundamentals to see if the finances are in good shape. But you also need to look at the market and the competition. Companies that are first to market have a huge advantage and that alone can be worth a lot.

Revenue growth of small startups always drives insane stock prices. Its only when the revenues start to slow and investors see they aren't going to be making the EPS to justify the lower growth rate that the stock crashes. Growth stocks crash harder during corrections as they run up more, but in the long run the right growth companies outpeform ones that are not....

The more publicity the company gets the harder it will run (uber)
