+ Watch LITB
on My Watchlist
Management problems, revenue growth and profitability issues concern every investor here. Honestly the risk is definetly high. Nevertheless, the business model is just great with additional advantages over Aliexpress. LITB is closer to the business of Amazon and Aliexpress is closer to Ebay. They will profit mostly with the growth of Aliexpress, because LITB is very unknown yet. It's also the case that succesfull competitors can be beneficial for the entire business. Unfortunately I can't tell if the company will survive their weeknesses over the next 2 critical years. But if it does, it can be a nice entry point. I believe their business model compared to Amazon / Amazon Market Place is ideal between far countries. The advantage over Aliexpress / Ebay model is only that the customer will feel more comfortable purchasing directly from the bigger company that comunicates in several languages. Aliexpress and Ebay are not so. Therefore products coming from small chinese producers can be very successfull following the Amazon / Amazon Market place model rather than the Ebay model. Maybe it is too early for this business yet, because they lack of better product standards and this I can confirm by myself. But if they manage to solve these problems, then it's a good bet.
Big drop not too long ago, solid sector in a growing country. Could be the next Amazon, who knows!
Looking great online buy buy buy make money
Advertisements for Lightinthdbox.com are popping up on line everywhere. They appear to be experiencing a steep growth curve while at the same time dealing with increasing pressure from sales demand. I predict that within a few weeks, just before thanksgiving and the holiday season - it won't look pretty, but they are going to hit the ball right out of the park!
The sale off was wayyyy overdone. Their business model is one of a kind. They are making deals with other companies to provide the cheapest goods to consumers out there. They also free shipping world-wide and I believe if they are not bought out by a larger company (dangdang, amazon, etc), this stock can be an easy double/triple in 3-5 years. The e-commerce boom in China will evolve a lot quicker than it did in the US.
business model and price leaves a lot of potential for major growth
This stock has been hit too hard
They'll turn around.
Bullish view on LITB and the Chinese eCommerce industry:http://nasdaqnewsreports.blogspot.com/2013/09/comparing-major-players-in-chinese-eCommerce-industry.html
A wonderful business model where it is in China, having close relationship with suppliers and it has the ability to tailor make certain goods for customers without the necessity of its workers travelling to China from Western countries to monitor progress of tailor-made products and goods. It has an inherited advantage over its Western counterparts.
