A Look at How Domain Stocks Did in 2016, If You Owned Tucows You Were Very Happy

Posted on the 30 December 2016 by Worldwide @thedomains

2016 was a great year for shareholders of Tucows and Neustar, for shareholders of Verisign, Marchex and Sedo parent United Internet ? Not so much.

Tucows was the star for 2016 up 67% on the year. Neustar got acquired and the stock finished up close to 40%.

Verisign saw their fortunes take a down turn in 2016, all the speculative hand regs based on Chinese whims did not materialize in 2016 like they did in 2015. The stock was down over 12%. Of course the company won the .web extension for $135 million.

Owning Rightside turned out to be like watching paint dry if you held for the whole year and made no transactions. The stock was down three cents on the year.

The Dow Jones was up 13.42% while Bitcoin was up 124%.
