- E-commerce service provider ChannelAdvisor (NYSE:ECOM) has been hit with 8 downgrades after warning it expects soft Q4 sales due to a mix shift towards larger online retail clients (have lower take rates).
- Deutsche (downgrade to Hold): "The challenges facing ECOM is not the overall health of online ecommerce or the GMV growth its customers are posting ... ECOM is being pressured by churn at the low end of its retail customer base and weak pricing leverage at the high end of its customer base, a reflection of a tough end market (the retail sector) and/or a weaker-than-expected value proposition for its core product."
- Baird (downgrade to Neutral): "Management indicated particular weakness among eBay clients (small-sellers) ... perhaps reflecting consumer preference for bigger brands/retailers during the time sensitive holiday period." Worth noting: eBay has been losing share to Amazon for some time (as ChannelAdvisor's own data highlights).
- E-commerce infrastructure software provider Demandware (DWRE -5%) and international e-commerce services firm Borderfree (BRDR -4.2%) have followed ChannelAdvisor lower.
