  • Shopify has had a rough start to 2022 due to fading tailwinds related to the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • SHOP is a long-term winner in becoming the preeminent e-commerce platform for merchants to grow and promote their brand.
  • The company is entering its next building phase of its Shopify Fulfillment Network to establish two-day delivery coverage.
  • SHOP has a unique product offering that differentiates the company from competitors.
  • Assuming a CAGR of 5% for SHOP’s top-line in FY22 through FY25 and discount rate of 12.5%, my DCF model arrived at an intrinsic value of $700.51 (85.57% upside).
