Keep an Eye-On Private and Public Ecommerce Holding Companies and The Ecommerce Market in General

Please note that the list is not all inclusive and is not in any particular order.  After reviewing tons of micro cap companies and giving investors advice on tackling penny stocks and private equity....we thought we would veer off from our regular blog topics.  This list is of "Ecommerce Holding Companies", basically companies that own and operate eCommerce websites.

At we love large opportunity, and like micro cap companies, these companies are a bit ahead of their time.  Yes there is Google and Yahoo and Ebay and Amazon.....but you don't have to be a Billion dollar company to own an eCommerce site and smaller players are getting more noticed, and for good reason.  

SEO, Social Media and turn-key solutions to eCommerce building are leveling the playing field for all parties.  A quick look at Acumen Brands Inc and you will see how they are taking a clothing niche to a whole new level.  While the company is private and does not release earnings, you can clearly see the value they are building.  The same goes for GidiVentures Holdings and Homescape LLC (which is the parent to this blog and owners of TagSale.CO).

Tencent E-Commerce by far is the largest of the list based in china.  Tucows is a public traded company and their holdings far exceed just eCommerce.  Tenth Avenue Holdings looks to just have entered the eCommerce market, but they recently expanded into Connecticut housing their eCommerce portfolio.  

If you are looking for a hot private equity deal, these companies are ripe.  The eCommerce market has been growing year over year and last years results are stellar.  The Census Bureau of the Department of Commerce announced that the estimate of U.S. retail e-commerce sales for the fourth quarter of 2013, adjusted for seasonal variation, but not for price changes, was $69.2 billion, an increase of 3.4 percent (±1.6%) from the third quarter of 2013. Total retail sales for the fourth quarter of 2013 were estimated at $1,147.7 billion, an increase of 0.6 percent (±0.2%) from the third quarter of 2013. The fourth quarter 2013 e-commerce estimate increased 16.0 percent (±3.7%) from the fourth quarter of 2012 while total retail sales increased 3.8 percent (±1.1%) in the same period. E-commerce sales in the fourth quarter of 2013 accounted for 6.0 percent of total sales.
