Top E-commerce Stocks to Buy in June
The Motley Fool has recommended three top e-commerce stocks to buy in June: Amazon, PayPal, and Costco. Amazon, despite experiencing operating losses in its e-commerce segments in fiscal 2022, is back on a growth path in 2023. PayPal, with a 42% market share in online payment software, is considered a bargain buy due to the discrepancy between Wall Street’s apprehension and PayPal’s earnings.
