Why Did Shopify's Stock Stage A Strong Reversal Today?

Shopify Inc (NYSE: SHOP) is trading higher Tuesday after the stock was upgraded by Loop Capital.

What Happened: Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba upgraded Shopify from Hold to Buy and announced a price target of $1,400. The analyst cited strong growth in the coming years as a reason for the upgrade. 

“While the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the shift to online shopping last year, we note the vast majority of retail sales still occur in physical stores, which indicates to us Shopify still has plenty of room to grow,” Chukumba said. 

SHOP Earnings: Shopify reported first-quarter financial results on April 28, with earnings of $2.01 per share beating the estimate of 73 cents per share. Revenue of $988.65 million beat the estimate of $865.48 million.
