Roblox(NYSE:RBLX) has attracted a stampede of bulls since its direct listing in March. The gaming company's stock opened at $64.50 on its first trading day, well above its reference price of $45, and subsequently advanced to the low $90s -- even as many high-growth stocks lost their momentum.

Roblox impressed investors with its unique business model, robust growth rates, and lack of meaningful competitors -- but will its stock continue climbing over the next five years? Let's delve deeper into Roblox's strengths, weaknesses, and valuations to find out.

Roblox lets people create video games with a simple block-based system. The simplicity of its platform, which doesn't require any coding experience, drives its growth among tween users. More than half of its daily active users (DAUs) are currently under the age of 13.
