Shopify (NYSE:SHOP) stock is sliding lower on Wednesday after the e-commerce company was hit with a downgrade from Wedbush analyst Scott Devitt.

Shopify stock was downgraded by the Wedbush analyst from an “outperform” rating to a “neutral” rating. That matches the analyst consensus rating of hold for the shares based on 41 opinions.

To go along with that downgrade, Devitt increased the price target for SHOP stock from $66 per share to $68 per share. That’s a potential 9% drop from its prior closing price. However, it’s still higher than the analyst consensus price prediction of $65.40 per share.

What’s Behind the SHOP Stock Downgrade?

Here’s what the Wedbush analyst had to say about Shopify in a note to clients obtained by Seeking Alpha:

“We see limited room for further multiple expansion, and without incremental catalysts emerging from the investor day, we are lowering our rating to neutral.”

SHOP stock is down 2.6% as of Wednesday morning. That comes alongside some 5.1 million shares of the stock changing hands. This is still below the company’s daily average trading volume of about 11.5 million shares.
