Shopify (NYSE: SHOP) stock price has been receiving substantial investors confidence over the past few years. This is due to its solid executing along with the increasing market share in the digital commerce industry.

Investor’s confidence in its financial numbers and future fundamentals has pushed its stock price to an all-time high of $400 last week.
