Shopify shares got a rating boost from Wedbush analyst, who cited the company’s potential to capture a share of the e-commerce market in the short term and over time.
Analyst Ygal Arounian upgraded the e-commerce software-and-services provider’s shares to outperform from neutral. The analysts also raised his price target to $1,300 from $998.
"We continue to see strength in Shopify’s near-term ability to capture share in e-commerce," said analyst Arounian. According to the analyst, “pull-forward in e-commerce trends” would be sustainable over time, driven in large part by ongoing changes to consumer habits.
According to the analyst, the coronavirus pandemic has increased the importance of fulfillment for small to midsized businesses and direct-to-consumer companies - which boosts the relevance of the Shopify Fulfillment Network, which the company launched last year. The analyst expects continued upside to estimates, even before the Shopify Fulfillment Network and Point of Sale contribute in material ways.
“While Shopify has targeted $1 billion in SFN costs through 2023E, this reflects an expected cash-neutral rollout that would also come alongside the expected $1 billion in revenue through 2023E," Arounian said.
The analyst feels all this as just the “first steps in a much larger opportunity” that could augment Shopify’s position in business-to-business e-commerce as well over time.
