Vipshop Stock Return Since IPO

Vipshop has returned over 5,000 percent since its IPO, a little over 3 years ago. That's nearly 5 times as much as Amazon has returned over the last decade. Let's look under the hood, to see what's triggered such a mind-boggling rally.

Vipshop Revenue Growth

Vipshop has grown its revenue at breakneck speeds since it went public, clocking a revenue of over 3.7 billion Dollars in 2014.

Vipshop User Growth And Order Growth

The case is similar with Vipshop's active customer base and total orders, both of which have grown at a stellar pace.

Vipshop Growth On Mobile

In 2014 alone, Vipshop made great progress on mobile, generating 66% of its gross merchandise sales on mobile in Q4, up from 46% in Q2.

Vipshop Net Margins

The e-commerce company reported a net profit margin of 3.6% in 2014, a marked improvement, from its 2011 loss margin of 47%. albeit somewhat flat since 2012. But before you jump in, here's what you should bear in mind.

Vipshop Stock Analysis : Gross Margin Expansion The Key

Vipshop now makes profits, and that's very encouraging. But the improvements in Vipshop's gross margins, seem to have tapered off, and it might get tougher for Vipshop to expand its net profit margins. Combined with impressive growth in revenue, users and orders, if Vipshop can continue to show improvements in its gross and net margins, it could become a compelling investment option.
