We’re still bullish on both Apple and Roku but recognize that it’s going to be tough for either to repeat 2019’s performance. Nevertheless, this year, we’re still all about technology.

Right now revenue is tracking $2 billion for 2020, which is roughly where Amazon was back in 1999. Jeff Bezos had a $76 stock in those days so you can see the long-term potential. Unlike Amazon in 1999, SHOP is already profitable and unlike Amazon today, it’s still in the sweet spot of its growth curve.

Manufacturers are coming onboard now to sell their products direct to the consumer. That’s going to disrupt the way we think about retail even more than Amazon did with its souped-up catalog sales model. Think about where Amazon went from $76. That’s where SHOP can go.
