Looking for an E-Commerce Stock That Will Benefit From a COVID-19 Vaccine? Try Revolve Group

Most e-commerce companies got a massive boost in 2020. Etsy, Shopify, and Wayfair saw their share prices jump 100% or more in the past year due to an increased demand for online shopping. One e-commerce business actually saw significant headwinds in 2020: Revolve Group (NYSE:RVLV). The fashion retailer saw sales and revenue decline, even though it was at a clear advantage versus its brick-and-mortar competitors.

Now, more than ever, consumers are interested in anti-viral options. At a time when hand sanitizers, cleaning agents, and

LONDON — Everybody wants a slice of China’s booming luxury and fashion market, especially after the coronavirus put a stop to many businesses around the world.

It’s indeed fascinating to hear stories about how loyal Chinese consumers would queue outside Chanel and Hermès stores moments after the pandemic was contained and spend a record-breaking sum of money on high-price items, and how Burberry’s 100 limited-edition Pocket Bags in collaboration with Mr. Bags sold out within seconds on his WeChat mini-program.

McKinsey predicts Chinese consumers will account for 40 percent of the world’s luxury spending by 2025, but the growing demand is likely to be trapped in the country until 2021 due to pandemic disruptions.
