Shopify shares got a price target hike from analysts at RBC Capital.
On Thursday, RBC Capital analysts boosted their price target on the e-commerce company to $1,000 per share from $825 per share. They reaffirmed their outperform rating.
According to the analysts, the market "still underappreciates" some aspects about Shopify. RBC expects Shopify’s annual revenue to climb to $25 billion by 2028, from an estimated $2.3 billion in 2020.
The analysts mentioned that Shopify has garnered more than 1 million merchants on its platform, which is more than triple from 325,000 merchants in 2016.
RBC also projects that Shopify's take rate, or the percentage of transactions on its platform that the company keeps, will expand by 30 to 40 basis points in the near term on growth in payment adoption. For the long-term, the analysts anticipate expansion in its take rate of between 100 and 110 basis points fueled by increased usage of value-added services (VAS) like Shopify Capital, shipping and the Shopify Fulfillment Network.
