Shopify reported a big increase in merchants on its platform. It passed the 325,000 milestone at some point in the third quarter, and it ended the year with 377,500. The company seemingly added more merchants in the fourth quarter this year than last year when it showed a 43,000 increase from the milestone it reached in the previous quarter. Timing of crossing that milestone obfuscates exact sequential growth numbers, but overall, Shopify had another very strong fourth quarter.

Still, plenty of investors are likely wondering if Stitch Fix (NASDAQ:SFIX) is a good buy before its fourth-quarter earnings report, due out on Oct. 1 after market close.
