Every week, Benzinga conducts a sentiment survey to find out what traders are most excited about, interested in or thinking about as they manage and build their personal portfolios via stocks, options and forex trading. This week we posed the following question to over 500 investors and traders: Over the next five years, which e-commerce stock will have the largest percentage gain?
Which E-Commerce Stock Is Poised For The Most Growth?
- Shopify Inc. (NYSE: SHOP)
- Etsy Inc. (NASDAQ: ETSY)
- Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN)
- Wayfair Inc. (NASDAQ: W)
- Overstock.com Inc. (NASDAQ: OSTK)
A slight majority of traders and investors, 50.7%, told us Amazon’s stock would grow the most by 2025.
As one of the world’s highest-grossing e-commerce platforms, Amazon is more than retail services alone: streams of revenue for the tech giant also include Kindle, Audible and music subscriptions as well as its IT service management subsidiary AWS.
A nod to marked revenue growth in 2020, we recently reported Amazon is on a 2020 hiring spree: some 33,000 corporate-level and tech hires are being recruited for new roles within the company and wages average around $150,000 for these positions.
Amazon trades at $3,223.50 per share, off the 52-week low of $1,626.03 per share.
After Amazon, 21.9% of respondents believe shares of Shopify will grow the most in the next 5 years.
Shopify has seen financial success mid-pandemic. Shopify reported Q2 2020 revenue of $714,341,000, which beat the $505,080,000 estimate. This figure marked a 97.34% year-over-year revenue increase. Earnings per share increased 650% over the past year to $1.05.
Shopify will report Q3 2020 earnings on October 29 before the market open.
Shopify trades at $1,066.95, off the 52-week low of $282.02 per share.
