Why Is ContextLogic (DESIRE) Stock Down Today?

After hitting a top of more than $32 per share earlier in 2014, WISH stock has actually since decreased to $1.65 per share at the time of this writing. Today’s descending move of around 6% is simply the most up to date in an outright beatdown of this retail investor fave.
Capitalists had previously gotten on ContextLogic as a special ecommerce business with the ability to potentially compete with some large behemoths in the area. Indeed, with a valuation of just $1.1 billion now, WISH stock had actually seemed like a decent gamble. Considering just how rapid various other ecommerce players have actually run, it makes sense.
However, ContextLogic’s service model is a bit various from various other providers. This company links individuals with vendors directly, offering a more smooth acquisition process for inexpensive products. That stated, as inflation has surged on and also low-priced items have actually been repriced greater (alongside surging shipping expenses), ContextLogic’s company model isn’t as appealing as it when was.
In addition to that, there occurs to be yet one more bearish company-specific driver dragging WISH stock down today. So, let’s study what capitalists are viewing with WISH currently.

Nonetheless, on the whole, experts appear to be taking a bearish view of WISH now. As necessary, till this view shifts, the market shows up to siding with them.
