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?
- Shopify SHOP
- Etsy ETSY
- Amazon AMZN
- Wayfair W
- Overstock OSTK
A majority of traders and investors, 50.7% to be exact, 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 their IT service management subsidiary AWS.
A nod to marked revenue growth in 2020, Benzinga recently reported about Amazon's 2020 hiring spree: some 33,000 corporate-level and tech hires are being recruited for new roles within the company. This hiring block will earn average wages of around $150,000.
Be sure to follow Benzinga’s coverage of Amazon leading up to its earnings release on Oct. 29 after market close.
Amazon trades at $3,286 per share at publication time.
After Amazon, 21.9% of respondents believe shares of Shopify will grow the most in the next five years.
Shopify has seen financial success mid-pandemic. The company reported second-quarter revenue of $714.3 million, which beat the estimate of $505 million, good for a 97.34% year-over-year revenue increase. Earnings per share increased 650% over the past year to $1.05.
Shopify will report earnings Oct. 29 before the market open.
Shopify trades at $1,082.
Overall, traders and investors told us among e-commerce stocks we surveyed for shares of Etsy (14.7%), Overstock.com (7.4%) and Wayfair (5.2%) have the least room to go between now and 2025.
- Amazon 50.7%
- Shopify 21.9%
