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.
