Shopify (SHOP) To Report Better Earnings, Push Price Up After Earnings
$Shopify(SHOP)$ is expected to release earnings on 13 Feb 2024 before the market opens (BMO). Shares surged in early November after the Canadian e-commerce firm reported another quarter of strong bottom-line and top-line growth and also gave an upbeat outlook.
Like a lot of similar e-commerce companies, Shopify has been cutting costs. In May, the company laid off 20% of its workforce. It also announced plans to sell its logistics unit to Flexport, a supply chain software startup.
Shopify's fourth-quarter profit is expected to more than quadruple to 31 cents a share, with revenue up 19% to $2.07 billion.
Technical is showing uptrend based on Shopify have been trading for more than 50 trading sessions above the 50-day MA period. I would think investors would be interested to see how Shopify would show the savings from the cost cutting and if they are going to implement another one.
We have seen some e-commerce companies suggest a weak market in 2024 as well.
