+ Watch MELI
on My Watchlist
An online trading company which focused on enabling e-commerce and its related services.
strongest e-commerce presence in emerging Latin American market.
Like going back in time and buying AMZN when it was in its early stages.
buy into fear
Short-term currency/political worries will eventually fade and investors will notice that MercadoLibre is expanding and becoming more and more entrenched as the dominant online retailer in their markets. As currencies ultimately stabalize or revert, profitability and growth in $USD will again look better.
Growing market, great entry point
eCommerce is only getting bigger and Latin America is one massive growth region. Baring huge investment from Alibaba or Amazon growth will be continual and organic for MercadoLibre
The Amazon of South America. This $5B Market Cap cam easily go to $10B.
Growing market with a strong system that has been proven in larger markets.
MELI continues to build a dominant e-commerce platform in Latin America with its MercadoPago payments service and MercadoEnvios shipping service supplementing its growing marketplace. While currency devaluations and Latin American economic volatility continue to plague its short-term prospects, MELI is gradually fortifying its competitive position which promises major market out-performance once the region stabilizes. Long-term growth of internet penetration and e-commerce sales are expected in Latin America. Amazon.com's June 2015 entrance into Mexico is a competitive concern worth keeping an eye on. Outperform.
buy on dip
Provides ease of access (via electronic payments) to products online regardless of how the brick and mortar stores are performing in its territory
An interesting business, in alliance with ebay and in a region with lots of potential growth, I think MELI should be a good stock to invest in...
As the US dollar and equity markets gets stronger, the international markets begin to look more appealing. This is my favorite in the Latin America market.
Dominant position in the South American e-commerce market. Visionary and very experienced leadership at the helm. The company's payment and shipping solutions make its network effect all the stronger and will help thwart efforts of new or outside competitors attempting to enter the region. MercadoLibre is also making a lot of headway boosting its presence in mobile. I think there's a good reason eBay chose to invest in MercadoLibre (owning 18.4% of the company) rather than directly compete with it. Overall cash flow and free cash flow production are very much positive and continue to rise each year. This enables the company to invest in product development, acquisitions, and even pay a small dividend. There are a lot of factors to like with MercadoLibre. The stock will be volatile in the short term thanks to macro/currency issues, but so long as cash flow and its core business continues to grow the stock will eventually follow over the long haul. Outperform.
eBay in latin america. Good market share. Country risk.
This is the Amazon/Ebay of Latin America. It may be volatile, but I think that over the long term this company is going to outperform in a big way.
The middle class is coming! First-mover advantage is proving to be a big deal for the ecommerce king of Latin America and that eBay still holds 18.5% of the shares is very telling indeed. Many ways to make their money and the model is working. Gotta be long this stock.
MercadoLibre works superbly on a free-market model growing in six Latin American countries. Intelligently, the company entered into a strategic alliance with eBay to keep one of the biggest players at bay. MercadoLibre has done very well in terms of both revenue and earnings in past seven years, including the recession years. The revenue stream is also diversified. The Internet penetration in Latin American countries is still less than 50% on average. Rising disposable income and a growing middle class provide huge scope of growth. The ROIC and net profit margin for the past five years have been 33% and 25%, respectively. So it can afford aggressive marketing if, in the future, new players enter the market. And there is a bonus: It pays small dividend! In spite of such an outstanding performance, the company is trading relatively cheap.
