Shopify, which is one of the companies in the Ark Innovation Fund, had a strong performance during the pandemic. This happened as the number of people creating online stores and those buying from e-commerce stores rose.

As a result, the Shopify stock price jumped to an all-time high of $1,823, valuing it at over $100 billion. Now, with the world economy reopening, investors have dumped lockdown stocks as growth has slowed.

In a statement, Shopify said that total revenue rose by 22% in Q1 to $1.2 billion. This was the highest quarterly revenue on record. Its monthly recurring revenue rose to $105.2 million from the previous $89 million. Subscription revenue rose by 8% to $344.8 million while the total Gross Merchandise Volume (GMV) rose to over $43.2 billion.

The Shopify stock price also declined after the company expanded its logistics business. In a statement, the company agreed to pay $2.1 billion to buy Deliverr, a company that provides fulfillment solutions. The company will be funded 80% in cash and the rest in shares. 

Like Amazon, the company is struggling as inflation keeps rising. Recent data showed that the headline consumer price index (CPI) rose by 8% in the United States. The company is also finding challenges as the logistics challenges continue.

Shopify stock price forecast

The SHOP stock price declined sharply after the company published weak earnings. It will open at $423, which is slightly above its lowest level this year. The shares have moved below the 25-day and 50-day moving averages. It is also below the important support level at $514, which was the lowest level on March 15th. 

Therefore, it seems like bears are in control, which will push the stock sharply lower in the coming weeks. As such, a drop below the support level at $400 cannot be ruled out.
