Starting with that price prediction, Boone expects SHOP stock to climb to $65 per share. That represents a potential 45.1% increase compared to the stock’s prior closing price. It’s also above the analysts’ consensus price target of $47.90 per share.
To go along with that price target, the JP Morgan analyst also upgrade SHOP stock from a “market perform” to an “outperform” rating. That’s bullish next to the analysts’ consensus rating of “hold” based on 35 opinions.
What’s Behind the Bullish SHOP Stock Rating
Boone said the following about SHOP stock in a note to clients obtained by CNBC:
“After analyzing the OpEx structure across the website builders, assessing third-party website traffic data, and speaking to professional website developers across these platforms, we are reaffirming our view that Shopify is the leader in commerce enablement and continues to take share.”
Considering the recent trouble the tech sector has gone through due to inflation, it’s heartening to see a positive stance on SHOP stock. Investors seem to agree with that sentiment as the e-commerce company’s shares are up 4.9% during pre-market trading on Wednesday. Also, the stock is up 25.5% since the start of the year.
