Dissatisfied with the existing e-commerce products on the market, Lütke, a computer programmer by trade, instead built his own.

In January 2019, Shopify announced the launch of Shopify Studios, a full-service television and film content and production house.
The Bottom Line on Shopify Stock
Since the record Christmas Eve decline in the broader markets, Shopify stock has had nice comeback. Therefore a slight pullback toward the higher $150’s level might still occur in SHOP stock.
SHOP is a growth stock as well as a speculative stock. Therefore, you can expect its price to be a battlefield between investors and traders. While long-term investors would like to see Shopify go over the $200 level, traders are likely to keep the range between $205 and $155, so there is profit there to be made. Keep your eye on shop.
If you already own SHOP stock, you might want to hold your position. Well-performing stocks tend to keep on winning, and the recent strength of Shopify stock might be a good indication that within three or four years, investors who buy SHOP are likely to be rewarded lucratively.

Canada Goose Holdings(TSX:GOOS)(NYSE:GOOS)
Canada Goose was founded in Toronto, Canada in 1957. Canada Goose Holdings Inc. is listed on the New York Stock Exchange and the Toronto Stock Exchange. Does not currently anticipate declaring dividends on shares of common stock.
Canada Goose Holdings Inc. is a Canadianholding company of winter clothing manufacturers. The company was founded in 1957 by Sam Tick, under the name Metro Sportswear Ltd. Canada Goose maintains a wide range of jackets, parkas, vests, hats, gloves, shells and other apparel.
In 1957, Polish–Jewish immigrant Sam Tick founded Metro Sportswear Ltd. in a small warehouse after spending years working as a cutter in other factories. Metro made woollen vests, raincoats, snowmobile suits, and other functional outerwear before creating down-filled jackets in the early 1970s. In 1972, Tick’s son-in-law, David Reiss, joined the company and eventually became CEO. Metro mainly focused on manufacturing custom down-filled coats and heavy-duty parkas for the Canadian Rangers, city police departments, the Ontario Provincial Police, municipal workers, the Ministry of Environment, and the Ministry of Correctional Services.
In the early 1980s, Metro Sportswear expanded to 50 employees. In 1985, David Reiss, Sam Tick’s son-in-law, acquired a majority equity stake in the company. In 1985, the company began to produce apparel under its own “Snow Goose” brand. In the early 1990s, Metro began selling its products in Europe, where the Snow Goose name was already in use, so Metro sold its European products under the name Canada Goose.
David Reiss’ son Dani Reiss joined the company in 1997. In 2001, when Dani succeeded his father as CEO, Canada Goose generated around $3 million in annual revenue, largely through licensing its designs to other companies in the industry. Under Dani Reiss’ leadership, the company discontinued its private label operations and continued to manufacture only in Canada rather than outsourcing to Asia where labor costs were much lower. The business expanded in the mid-1990s and revenues increased from roughly $3 million in 1991 to roughly $17.5 million in 2008, reflecting increased sales of Canada Goose products in Scandinavia since 1998, and in Canada around 2008.
Canada Goose began to expand internationally and in 2010 it opened an office in Stockholm, Sweden, for its European operations. In 2011, Canada Goose acquired a new plant in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. As global growth continued, Canada Goose moved its Winnipeg operations into a larger facility in 2013. The Canadian Marketing Association named Reiss as its marketer of the year in 2013.[
In December 2013, Boston-based private equity firm Bain Capital acquired a 70% equity stake in Canada Goose at a $250 million valuation. The deal included a commitment to keep manufacturing in Canada. Canada Goose also acquired a factory in the former city of York in Toronto formerly owned by ACCO Brands‘ Hilroy stationery. In December 2014, Canada Goose opened a showroom and an office in New York City. In January 2015, Canada Goose acquired a second manufacturing facility in Scarborough from a contractor. In November 2015, Canada Goose opened a second factory in Winnipeg significantly increasing its manufacturing capacity. That year the company revenue was reported to be about $200 million, including warm-weather countries such as Indiaand the Middle East. In late 2016, Canada Goose opened a store in Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre.
The company announced preparations in November 2016 for an initial public offering, reporting that it generated $291 million in revenue and $27 million in profit in 2016 and had $278 million in debt. On March 16, 2017, shares of the company began trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange and New York Stock Exchange with the ticker symbol GOOS. In October 2017, Canada Goose opened its second United States flagship store in Chicago. The 10,000-square-foot store is located on the famous Magnificent Mile shopping area.
Despite their high cost, Canada Goose’s fur-trimmed parkas have become “almost the uniform of the inner city among 16-to-24 year olds” in Canada, according to as one president of a market research firm. In China, despite calls to boycott Canadian products over the arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou in Canada, the brand’s new flagship store in Beijing saw long lineups on opening day in December 2018. Woodchurch High School in Birkenhead, England has banned jackets from Canada Goose, Pyrenex, and Moncler in order to “poverty-proofing the school environment”, in response to disadvantaged students feeling pressure from their wealthier peers with such coats.
In 2018, robbers on mopeds did a smash-and-grab on a Canada Goose store on Regent Street in London. In January 2019, several people were robbed of their Canada Goose coats in Chicago.
In January 2019, Canada Goose unveiled a new collection called Project Atigi. This collection features the designs of traditional parks from Inuit designers who came from nine communities in Nunavut, Northwest Territories, Quebec, and Newfoundland and Labrador. All of the parkas designed are unique and made of Canada Goose materials.

The company was founded in 1984 by Duncan Klett and two others as Cadence Computer Corporation and went public in June 2014. It has 500 employees.
Kinaxis provides supply-chain-management software on a subscription basis, primarily to large, multinational companies. Customers include Ford, Cisco, Qualcomm, and Avaya. They also provide related professional services to their customers. Contracts typically run for two to five years Their main product is called RapidResponse. As of 2017, approximately 77% of revenue came from subscriptions, with the remainder from professional services. Kinaxis also allows other companies, including Deloitte and Bain & Company, to install Kinaxis software for a percentage of the subscription revenues. Kinaxis runs two data centers in South Korea. It has approximately 100 customers and about 5% of an estimated $4 billion market for software related to supply chain planning. As of 2016, 85% of revenue was from US customers, 4% from Canadian customers, 8% from Asian customers, and the rest from European customers.
Kinaxis was founded in 1984 as Cadence Computer Corporation, to do supply-chain analysis of using custom mainframe computers, by three former Mitel engineers. The name was later changed to Carp Systems International (after the nearby Carp River), then Enterprise Planning Systems. In the mid 1990s, it changed its name to Webplan, and shifted from making hardware to providing software. In 2000, it led a venture round that raised $33 million. In 2005, it renamed itself Kinaxis, and started focusing on selling software by subscription, as opposed to collecting a one-time fee. In June 2014, it held an IPO on the Toronto Stock Exchange, raising a total of $100 million. Since then, its market capitalization has increased to $1.5 billion, as of april 2019.
What is Kinaxis worth?
According to a recent valuation model, the stock is currently overvalued by about 32.87%, trading at CA$79.38 compared to the intrinsic value of CA$59.74. This means that the buying opportunity has probably disappeared for now. But, is there another opportunity to buy low in the future? probably, Since Kinaxis’s share price is quite volatile, this could mean it can go lower (or rise even further) in the future, giving you another chance to invest. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for how much the stock moves relative to the rest of the market. (Beta is a measure of a stock’s volatility in relation to the market. By definition, the market has a beta of 1.0, and individual stocks are ranked according to how much they deviate from the market. A stock that swings more than the market over time has a beta above 1.0.)
Future outlook is an important aspect when you’re looking at buying a stock, especially if you are an investor looking for growth in your portfolio. Buying a great company with a robust outlook at a cheap price is always a good investment, so let’s also take a look at the company’s future expectations. With profit expected to grow by 55% over the next couple of years, the future appears bright for Kinaxis. It looks like higher cash flow is on the fold for the stock, which should feed into a higher share valuation.
There are no future dividends presently declared for “KXS” as of 04/05/2019. The declaration and payment of dividends are at the discretion of the Company.

Lululemon athletica inc.is a Canadian athletic apparel retailer. Lululemon is a self-described yoga-inspired athletic apparel company for women and men. The company makes a variety of types of athletic wear, including performance shirts, shorts, and pants, as well as lifestyle apparel and yoga accessories. The company was originally based in Canada, but has expanded to sell its products internationally in both store fronts and online. While the brand is known for its stylish and high-quality items, it has been criticized for being “cultish, faddish and overpriced.” The brand attempts to adopt a genuine, customer-education focus, but has been questioned as to whether it truly practices what it preaches. Key competitors include Athleta, Zella, Adidas, Alo Yoga, Nike (NYSE: NKE) and Under Armour.
The company was founded in 1998 by Chip Wilson in Vancouver, British Columbia, and sold its first pair of yoga pants that year. In 2005, Wilson brought in investors to help oversee the company’s initial public offering, including former Reebok executive Robert Meers. Lululemon launched its IPO in July 2007, and raised $327.6 million after selling 18.2 million shares.
Christine Day, a former co-president of Starbucks International, became chief executive officer in June 2008.[ In 2013, the company made its third consecutive appearance on Fortune’s Fastest-Growing Companies list. In March of that year, the company received media coverage after it pulled a line of its signature yoga pants due to “an unacceptable level of sheerness.” A few months later, CEO Day resigned with little explanation. In December 2013, founder Chip Wilson announced his resignation as chairman, and that president of TOMS Shoes, Laurent Potdevin, would become CEO.
In February 2014, Lululemon announced plans to open its first full store in Europe, with a flagship shop in Covent Garden, London. In February 2015, Wilson announced that he was resigning from the board, and Michael Casey, former lead director of the board, would replace him.
On February 5, 2018, Laurent Potdevin resigned as CEO and from the company’s board. Lululemon cited several incidents of unspecified misconduct as the reasons for Potdevin’s departure.
lululemon athletica inc. is estimated to report earnings on 05/30/2019. The upcoming earnings date is derived from an algorithm based on a company’s historical reporting dates.Our vendor, Zacks Investment Research, might revise this date in the future, once the company announces the actual earnings date. According to Zacks Investment Research, based on 13 analysts’ forecasts, the consensus EPS forecast for the quarter is $0.7. The reported EPS for the same quarter last year was $0.55.
LULU currently has a Forward P/E ratio of 37.1. Its industry sports an average Forward P/E of 15.87, so we one might conclude that LULU is trading at a premium comparatively.
Meanwhile, LULU’s PEG ratio is currently 2.06. The PEG ratio is similar to the widely-used P/E ratio, but this metric also takes the company’s expected earnings growth rate into account. LULU’s industry had an average PEG ratio of 1.45 as of 4-5-19’s end of day close.
“Lululemon has delivered one of its strongest years yet, a result of broad-based strength across the business,” CEO Calvin McDonald said in a press release. “We are energized to build upon our momentum and to seize the many opportunities ahead for Lululemon around the world.”
In the quarter ended Feb. 3, Lululemon said net income rose to $218.5 million, or $1.65 per share, from $119.8 million, or 88 cents per share. Excluding items, the retailer earned $1.85 per share, topping estimates of $1.74 per share.
Strong sales during the holiday quarter helped the company reach its goal of exceeding $1 billion earlier than expected. Revenue rose to $1.17 billion from $928 million in the year-ago quarter.
Lululemon’s Chief Operating Officer Stuart Haselden said the company’s operating margin was 21.5 percent, another goal it reached two years ahead of schedule.
Sales at stores open at least 12 months rose 16 percent, in line with estimates. After adjusting for currency fluctuations, same-store sales were up 17 percent. Both measures exclude revenue from the last week of fiscal 2018.
McDonald said Lululemon’s expansion into men’s apparel is the retailer’s largest, most exciting segment for future growth, at just over 20 percent penetration today. Specifically, the men’s “bottoms” segment has been extremely profitable.
“We really believe that Lululemon can be a duel gender brand and that our men’s business can ultimately be as big as our women’s,” said Haselden.
Earlier this month, Lululemon announced that former Philadelphia Eagles Superbowl quarterback Nick Foles signed on as the brand’s first men’s ambassador. Although acknowledging Foles’ high profile, Lululemon said they do not pay typical endorsement fees and instead look to partner with athletes that align with the brand’s values.
With its core women’s business, it is trying to expand offerings for the office, travel, commute, outerwear, and bras, McDonald said. Developing gear for warm weather runs is another opportunity.
“Lululemon is selling more to its existing shoppers and is taking a greater share of their wallets,” said Neil Saunders, managing director of GlobalData Retail. “Part of this is down to the expansion into non-traditional fitness categories such as business casual.”
Lululemon’s profitability in Asia and Australia more than offset the operating loss in Europe. Now with 21 stores in Europe, the retailer said it was about a year and half away from breaking even in Europe.
Seasonal stores have also proved successful for the company.
Unfortunately LULU does not currently pay a dividend.
Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers (NYSE:RBA)
Pays a dividend that has been consistently rising. Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers (NYSE:RBA)
Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers (RBA), or simply Ritchie Bros.is an industrial auctioneer, selling heavy industrial equipment and trucks through live and online auctions. The company is headquartered in Burnaby, a suburb of Metro Vancouver, and has operations in 12 countries and 40 auction sites worldwide. The company sells through unreserved public auctions, weekly featured auctions at IronPlanet, and various other online marketplaces, a broad range of used and unused industrial assets, including equipment, trucks and other assets utilized in the construction, transportation, agricultural, material handling, mining, forestry, petroleum, and marine industries.
Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers was established in Kelowna, British Colombia Canada. The three Ritchie brothers – Ken, John and Dave Ritchie – took over the OK Used Furniture Store from their father in 1955. They entered the auction business in 1958 when they needed CA$2,000 to pay a bank debt on short notice. A friend suggested they conduct an auction to get rid of some surplus inventory from the furniture store. They conducted their first auction at the Scout Hall in Kelowna in 1958 and discovered a new way of doing business.
Starting with that first auction at the Scout Hall, Ritchie Bros. maintained a strict policy of conducting unreserved auctions – meaning there were no minimum bids and no reserve prices. The brothers also established a policy of not allowing bid-ins or buybacks by the sellers.
The brothers began conducting auctions more regularly and in 1958 incorporated Ritchie Bros. Auction Galleries Ltd. to formalize their new business. Ritchie Bros. began selling used equipment in the 1960s. In 1963 Dave Ritchie moved to Vancouver, B.C. and rented an auction site on S.E. Marine Drive. He set up the company’s first equipment auction in Vancouver shortly after.
The Ritchie brothers conducted their first major unreserved industrial auction in Radium Hot Springs, British Columbia on June 7, 1963. They sold CA$663,000 of equipment in one day – by far the largest auction in the company’s history.
The success of the Radium Hot Springs auction convinced the brothers that they could make more money auctioning used equipment than selling furniture, so they sold their furniture store in Kelowna and went into the auction business full-time.
Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers established one of the trademarks of its auctions at the Radium Hot Springs auction. It was raining on the day of the auction. Instead of making the bidders walk around in the rain during the auction, they set up the auction under the eaves of a nearby shop and drove the equipment in to be sold piece by piece. The crowd stayed dry and the ramp-and-stage method became a fixture at Ritchie Bros. auctions thereafter.
n 2017, Ritchie Bros. conducted more than 475 auctions, selling US$4.5 billion of heavy equipment and trucks.

CAE Inc holds buy signals from both short- and long-term moving averages. In addition, there is a general buy signal from the relation between the two signals where the short-term average is above the long-term average. On corrections down there will be some support from the lines at $22.42 and $21.65. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. Volume is rising along with the price. This is considered to be a good technical signal. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Tuesday April 02, 2019, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found
