Shopify downgraded on limited growth outperformance

Exane BNP Paribas downgraded Shopify (NYSE:SHOP) to Underperform from Neutral with a price target of $51.00, noting that weakening U.S. consumer spending on higher-priced items may limit the company’s growth outperformance.

The company saw demand surge during the pandemic, leading it to invest heavily in its order-fulfillment network. However, the brokerage mentioned that the boom has since waned, forcing Shopify to divest its logistics business and announce a significant restructuring and wave of staff cuts.

The company’s Q1 results remained resilient as a suite of new tools helped justify an uptick in its subscription fees. However, the brokerage expects the current quarter to be "noisy," with the sale of the logistics arm causing a slight step down in revenue.
