E-commerce platform Shopify recently reported its Q4 earnings, which saw its stock plummet 10.3% to $47.90 during afterhours trading. The company missed expectations for GAAP earnings per share, but adjusted EPS was higher than consensus. Despite the miss, Shopify’s customer base and revenues continue to grow, with sales for the quarter exceeding consensus. However, the company’s guidance for Q1 2023 was disappointing, suggesting a decline in platform growth. Additionally, some investors remain skeptical about the company’s pivot toward profitability, particularly the nearly 10% of revenue spent on SBC in 2022. As for Shopify’s stock forecast, it remains uncertain, with analysts recommending a wait-and-see approach before re-entering the market. A break below $48 may mean retesting support from late December at $32.40.
