Shopify Stock Forecast: Shopify performance after split

During the pandemic, the stock price was overvalued. However, due to macroeconomic conditions like recession, Interest rate hikes have made the stock trade in a range of $30 to $40.

Shopify Stock Forecast: Why is the stock declining?

  • Revenue swelled up in pandemic times – At the onset of the pandemic revenue in Q1 stood around $470 m which rose to $1380 m in the 4th quarter of 2021. However, Shopify’s EPS for the quarter ending September 30, 2022, was $-0.12 making its price-to-earnings ratio value -3.04%. This means that the company is incurring losses. Before the pandemic, in context with Revenue, it grew at a stellar pace – ( $18.8 m standing in Q1 2014 to $505 m in Q4 of 2018), and that Revenue growth rate intensified during the pandemic. However, the Growth rate seems to have reached its Peak. One can get a clear understanding with the table given below. Amplified performance in revenue led to the over-valuation of the stock price during the pandemic, making it reach its all-time high of $1700.

  • Massive cash outflow in new merchant business segment – Following the amazing performance in Shopify’s solutions segment; It has extended its services in Shopify Collab, Shopify Capital, and Shopify logistics/network fulfillment. Shopify aims to build itself as a one-stop shop platform for its consumers. Since these new business scopes under the merchandise segment are still at a nascent stage Shopify is gradually increasing its Y-O-Y R&D expenses. Total operating expenses for the year 2021 were $2212.12 and about 38.6% was spent on R&D. Shopify entering the new business aspects may have a great positive impact but it also makes investors concerned about future profits. In 2021, eps had finally improved to $2.29 which has tumbled down back again in the negatives in the current year’s Quarter.

In conclusion, reiterating the above data, the Price to equity ratio is -3.04% and that means the investors are losing money on the company. Also, the debt to equity ratio for the 3rd quarter is .15% so investors should heedfully create their respective trade positions.
