Shopify shares slide 18%. With e-commerce on the rise, is this US stock a buy?

Kirsteen Mackay | Thursday, 4th March, 2021 | More on: SHOP Image source: Getty Images Shopify shares slide 18%. With e-commerce on the rise, is this US stock a buy? Multiple revenue streamsThe company now has a market value of around $150bn. In 2020, Shopify enjoyed full-year Gross Merchandise Volume revenue growth of 86% year-on-year. Its subscription revenue was up 53% year-on-year thanks to new merchants signing up. A combination of lockdowns, employment uncertainty and government money spurred many people to to start their own business or side hustle. This is good news for Shopify, but whether the trend will continue long term remains to be seen.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The company has also launched enhanced services such as Shopify Point of Sale (POS), which allows merchants to accept payments anywhere. POS includes inventory management, sales analytics and customer friendly purchase options. It also brings in money from fulfilment and payment services.Risks to considerOf course, there are risks too. A rise in inflation could affect e-commerce both from a consumer shopping viewpoint and if its business customers’ running costs outweigh their profits. This could be a problem if its merchants can’t afford to continue (or if its own costs escalate). It already offers Shopify Capital to help businesses stay afloat. This is its merchant cash advance and lending arm. That said, whether economies are booming or tanking, there will always be a new group of people looking to start their own business. Shopify makes it easy and affordable, which gives it staying power.It has heavyweight competition in eBay and Amazon. But while they allow merchants to sell their wares only under the eBay or Amazon banner, Shopify gives full brand ownership to each merchant. Also, as with many US tech stocks, I’m concerned the share price is expensive. The price-to-book value is 23, whereas Amazon’s is 16. Shopify doesn’t pay a dividend to give long-term reassurance during dips either. The Shopify share price is down 18% from its February all-time-high. That’s a rapid decline. But many US stocks in the tech space are enduring a correction, and how long this will continue is unknown.Should I buy Shopify shares?I think Shopify is a fantastic product and a very customer-focused platform. It’s sleek, user-friendly and technologically advanced. For instance, its Shop Pay application allows merchants to accept payments directly from Instagram and Facebook. This seamlessly integrates the user’s experience with the brand. Features like this impress me.I’d be happy to own shares in Shopify because I think it’s a powerful company with an even stronger future. But its high price (even after the share price decline) means that while I’m tempted to buy Shopify shares as a long-term investment, I’ll be waiting to see if it’s got further to fall. I do like its long-term outlook though, with merchant growth and subscription revenue increasing. I just need the right moment to buy.

Another two massive Jonah Lomu hits from the past

first_imgThursday Jan 17, 2008 Another two massive Jonah Lomu hits from the past Adding to our archive of Jonah Lomu moments, in these two clips the big man is at his best, showing exactly how devastating he was in his prime. In the first clip it’s the Hurricanes vs the Waratahs, or more like Jonah vs whoever tries to take him on. Not clear if it was called back because it was a knock-on or a shoulder charge, but either way, Kiwi commentator Murray Mexted thinks there’s ‘Nothing wrong with it’. Listen out for the sound as the tank hits the Waratahs player. In the next clip Rod Kafer learns a lesson that many players before and after him learnt – don’t get in Jonah’s way when he’s at full tilt.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

first_img Comments are closed. Long hours hit accountants’ careersOn 27 Mar 2001 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Accountancyfirms’ working practices have come under the spotlight following research whichreveals that four out of 10 accountants are fed up with their long hours.Thestudy, published by the Institute of Chartered Accountants this month, finds thatregular working in the evenings and at weekends is common. Atotal of 57 per cent of respondents said they often work evenings, 37 per centwork at weekends and 27 per cent fail to take leave entitlements.Thestudy forms the first phase of the institute’s workplace initiative to tackleskills shortages in the profession.KathrynBritten, chairwoman of the initiative said, “The first phase of the researchreflects a real concern that failing to comply with the stereotypicaloffice-based, long-hours culture is detrimental to the individual’s career.”Thefindings, which also cover HR managers, show that flexible working practicesare spreading. Allfirms surveyed offer part-time/reduced hours working and study leave and 80 percent provide secondment opportunities and career breaks.However,many respondents are unaware of all the flexible provisions offered by firms. Only12 per cent of respondents said it was easy to find out about work-life supportprogrammes in their organisations.CarmenBurton, HR manager for the accountancy firm the Norton Practice, told PersonnelToday that her firm was reviewing its working hours.Shesaid, “From a personal point of view, we don’t like employees to work weekendsbut evening work is up to the employee. “Weare looking at flexible working practices but our partners have reservationsabout this – it’s an issue of trust.”Burtonagrees with the survey’s findings that chartered accountants under 30 are mostlikely to regard working long hours as unacceptable. She said, “I’ve noticedtrainees are less adaptable to long working hours.”Theresearch was conducted by the Umist school of management and ManchesterMetropolitan University, which received 670 responses from charteredaccountants.www.icaew.co.ukByKaren Higginbottom Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Concentric fungal rings in antarctic moss communities

first_imgCertain Antarctic moss communities often have a pattern of concentric arcs or rings on their surfaces which can be up to 5 m in diameter. These are caused by fungal infection and show many similarities to those previously reported from the Arctic. The fungus appears not to spread through the moss uniformly but in a series of rapid advances, resulting in parallel stripes of infected moss; the reasons for this pattern remain unclear. During the seasons studied 2–6 infection stripes were produced per year, resulting in an average rate of advance of 8 cm yr−1. Three species of ascomycete have been found associated with these rings.last_img read more
