What are analysts saying about Shopify stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Shopify stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shopify's second-quarter 2017 results were impressive. The company's year-over-year revenue growth showed that Shopify’s cloud-based, multi-tenant, omni-channel, scalable platform is gaining adoption. The company continues to win new merchants, which surpassed 0.5 million at the end of quarter. The company is benefiting from retail’s rapid transition to mobile and social sales channels. Moreover, availability of Apple Pay and addition of eBay, Amazon and Facebook Messenger as sales channels are significant positives. Shopify has outperformed the broader industry on a year-to-date basis. However, the company’s increasing investments on product development, infrastructure and platform will continue to hurt profitability at least in 2017. We observe that the company is yet to report profit, which doesn’t augur well for investors." (8/7/2017)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "Shopify’s 1Q17 sales, adj. EBITDA, and adj." (5/3/2017)
  • 3. BTIG Research analysts commented, "The +60% run in the stock YTD may trigger thoughts of irrational exuberance (or at least lofty expectations), but we view it instead as the natural outcome when a company achieves perfect product/market fit. It's no secret that digital commerce is a long run secular trend (the market piece of the puzzle), and no one makes it easier to participate in it than Shopify (the product piece). By effectively growing the pool of sellers beyond traditional retailers and Amazon (AMZN, Not Rated), the company has claimed a disproportionate share of gross merchandise value. And despite stellar performance since going public in May 2015, we still think Shopify is in the early stages of its growth cycle; a perfect product/market fit (along with a benign competitive environment) should sustain its strong trajectory. Expectations are rising as investors start to appreciate the company's true potential, and a valuation of 7x EV/FY18 Revenues may look lofty to some; however, we believe that the incredible product/market fit justifies the premium. Moreover, it should also serve as the foundation for continued financial outperformance. Maintain Buy." (3/21/2017)
  • 4. Pacific Crest analysts commented, "With considerable runway ahead and multiple upside drivers, Shopify continues to be our favorite growth name to own. We are rolling out our 2021 model, and see a path to $1.7 billion in revenue and $90 billion in GMV, which would make Shopify a key data asset. Given its leading SaaS growth, a premium valuation is deserved. We are buyers and are raising our target to $78 (from $66)." (3/21/2017)
  • 5. Wedbush analysts commented, "We expect Shopify to continue to grow at above-ecommerce market growth rates for the foreseeable future as it continues to penetrate its sizable SMB TAM and makes in-roads with larger brands. FY16 ends on a high note. Q4 results topped expectations as revenue grew 86% YoY to $130.4 million coming in well ahead of both consensus of $121.6 million and the guidance range of $120-$122 million. Revenue growth was driven by strong execution across the board." (2/16/2017)
