Amazon’s growth is slowing. According to research firm eMarketer, Amazon has 40.4% of the $908 billion U.S. e-commerce market.
But that’s up from 39.8% last year – an increase of just 0.6 percentage points.
No wonder Amazon stock is up only 1.6% so far this year.
We need to look elsewhere for e-commerce growth.
Lucky for us, a company that is more widely known for electronic documents has quietly become an e-commerce powerhouse.
It’s all because of a platform called Magento. No, it’s not the name of a sci-fi character. It’s actually a massive win for the company I have in mind.
In fact, it’s a win so massive that it has helped this Silicon Valley leader crush Amazon by 900% so far this year, with plenty of upside ahead…
One of the biggest tech success stories that Latin America has seen in decades recently reported that sales in the June quarter came in at $1.7 billion. That amounted to a double from the year-ago period and handily beat Wall Street forecasts.
Make no mistake. This is no run-of-the-mill firm. In fact, it’s often referred to as the “Amazon of Latin America.”
Talk about a rocket ship. The stock is up some 195% since I last told you about it a little more than two years ago.
And just like Amazon itself, past gains are no sign that this company will slow down. If anything, it’s just the opposite…
Jeff Bezos and Amazon have been taking up a lot of space on our newsfeeds.
First, on July 5, he officially stepped aside as CEO of Amazon, which he founded in 1994 and built into a $1.8 trillion e-commerce giant.
Second, just two weeks later on July 20, the self-made billionaire roared into outer space, becoming one of the few private citizens to do so.
Then, last Friday the company missed revenue estimates and the market was further shocked when the tech giant called for considerably slower revenue growth of just 10%-16% in the third quarter.
It’s not uncommon for people or corporations to lose popularity when they’re over-exposed in the press. Amazon is no different.
A recent story in the Wall Street Journal profiled a group of companies vying to unseat the King of Ecommerce.
To me, the story came up short because it ignored the original Amazon challenger that’s been around since 1995.
Trading at just 2% of its famous competitor’s price, this ignored stock has beaten Amazon’s return this year by a stunning 12.30%
Let me show you why there’s so much upside ahead…
I’ll never forget the day I looked a hammerhead shark in the eyes.
Fortunately, I was not in the water at the time. Instead, I was looking over the rails of a deep-sea fishing boat off the coast of Florida near St. Petersburg.
My dad informed me that all those small fish swimming with the shark were “pilot fish.” The shark may be bigger, but it’s not a threat to the pilot fish. Instead, they work together, and help each other survive and thrive in the vast and dangerous ocean.
That day I learned a lifelong lesson that has helped me compile a market-crushing track record.
The same dynamic applies to the world of tech investing and Shopify Inc. (SHOP) fits that bill perfectly.
The stock of this supply firm would have turned $25,000 into nearly $1.2 million in the last five years.
Today, I’ll show you how it could double twice more from here…
The E-Commerce Empire
The annual summer online shopping bonanza has commenced.
Even two weeks ago there was a record $11 billion haul in just 48 hours.
No wonder so many investors are still interested in Amazon.com (AMZN), which recently concluded its Prime Day shopping experience.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m in no way easing my bullish belief in Amazon.
After all, the stock has been up 350% over the past five years.
Sure, it’s an impressive track record, but it pales in comparison to a backend e-commerce play that actually drives much of Amazon’s business.
Had you bought that stock instead, you’d have made more than 12 times as much money-enough to turn $25,000 into $1.2 million.
Now you understand why I always tell tech investors to take the long view. Tech is the prime sector to make millions out of pennies.
Today, in the first of two parts, I’m going to show you why this Amazon key supplier could double earnings twice more in three years…
Wall Street thinks that the end of the pandemic will shift focus away from online sales. They’re dead wrong, and their mistake is giving us an excellent moneymaking opportunity.
I mean, on paper, their assumption makes some sense.
After all, millions of us have been on lockdown for more than a year and But while that may cause an uptick in revenue at physical retailers, I believe this will be a short-term bounce.
The future of retailing belongs to e-commerce. And that’s particularly true of the niche market for handmade goods that has shifted online with huge momentum behind it.
And even if you don’t think about it very often, that’s a market with a global value of $718 billion, according to forecasters at IMARC.
And I’ve found the tech firm with a unique way of capturing this lucrative niche.
Even better, the firm just reported a whopping quarterly earnings increase: a 900% jump in per-share profits.
Let me show you why there’s still so much upside ahead…
