How Jumia stock is rebounding and gaining momentum 





The last four weeks has been that of uplift in fortune for holders of Jumia stock, and the development is rightfully drawing attention of stock-inclined minds:

Fruitful yuletide: The stock sold as high as $47 a day to Christmas and has hovered between $34 and $39 since December 11th 2020. On January 12th 2021, Jumia stock sold at $40 on the floor of New York Stock Exchange.

Unexpected positive turn in fortune: Jumia recorded a 12% drop in revenue in the first three quarters of 2020, but has made a 600% increase in stock price since then.  The best part is that the stock has sustained its good momentum for over a month.

Regret for doubters: Some investors who didn’t buy Jumia stock when it sold for just over $2 in March 2020 are beating up themselves for not taking advantage. Currently trading for just over $40, some holders see an opportunity to sell. But the next few months can also bring huge fortune for those who dare to hold.

Bright prospect: Analysts ascribed the improvement to investors’ belief in Jumia’s potential and are willing to overlook lagging business results for the time being. For instance, a $5,000 investment in Amazon in 1997 will translate to more than $4 million today. The current good performance of Jumia stock is an indication that the brand holds the potential of being a replica of the Amazon story in Africa.

Opportunity for Africans: Jumia prides itself as Amazon of Africa. It could end up being a smart move for Africans who buy into the dream by owning part of a brand that identifies with them.

Covid-19 Second Wave: Online Shopping Still Among Measures To Limit Spread – Jumia CEO





Jumia Nigeria CEO, Massiliano Spalazzi 

As authorities put measures in place to prevent rapid spread of covid-19 in the light of the second wave of the pandemic emanating from mutation variants of the dreaded virus, Jumia Nigeria CEO, Massiliano Spalazzi has highlighted the services of ecommerce platforms as one of the measures to help mitigate the spread among Nigerians.

While speaking on the crucial role and contributions of ecommerce in the present day socio-economic reality in Nigeria, Spalazzi said online shopping will help promote the adoption of social distancing measures and eliminate the contact risk associated with brick and mortar stores, as people can purchase different products of their choice and get them delivered from the safety of their home.

“Online shopping remains one of the ways individuals can take precautions to limit the spread of Covid-19. People are being urged to avoid large gatherings, and limit human contact as much as possible. Ecommerce platforms possess all these features that will help customers keep to the safety culture. From the comfort of their safety, customers can shop on the Jumia platforms, make payment through online payment solutions like JumiaPay and get them delivered via Jumia Express, or our contactless agents,” he said.

He pointed out the crucial role played by ecommerce platforms during the 2020 Covid-19 lockdown. “What we have seen last year has been how relevant and important e-commerce was in serving the population during these tough times. We’ve seen many different situations happen from the Covid-19, which obliged people to be locked down and having to purchase their goods in a safe way.”

During the first wave of the pandemic, ecommerce platforms served as a veritable channel for brands and businesses to connect with their customers. Global brands such as Coca-Cola, Procter & Gamble, Reckitt Benkiser, Nestle, Unilever and other essential goods manufacturers partnered with Jumia for sales of their products.

Likewise, online retail platforms were key for the survival of food and grocery enterprises when sit-in services were prohibited with customers restricted by social distancing rule. It was a period where more customers boarded the ecommerce food service train and several local restaurants partnered with Jumia to keep their food, beverage and grocery service going during the lockdown.
