A growing economy coupled with new applications and convenience of online shopping could provide a catalyst to businesses that sell merchandise through online channels.

Curated by Motif Investing

Background

Admit it: shopping for that new bathrobe, pair of stilts, or above-ground pool from the comfort of your own couch is pretty hard to beat. Convenience, selection, and sometimes lower prices are all behind the expansion of online business. Ecommerce is expected to grow 13% to 62 billion in 2013, representing 8% of the total retail pie. What’s more, projections call for online retail to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 9% through 2017. In the second quarter of 2013, e-commerce sales totaled 4.8 billion, up 18.5%, which represents the largest growth in any quarter since 2007.

The proliferation of tricked-out tablets and smarter smartphones means we can get off the couch, without stopping the shopping. And that could give the growth of online commerce even more legs.

We then filtered out companies that have a share price of less than .00 or a market capitalization less than 00 million, and excluded illiquid stocks by screening companies for liquidity i.e. average bid-ask spreads, dollar volume traded etc. Finally the proprietary Motif Optimization Engine determined the constituent stocks.
