Artisan Partners made the following comment about Etsy, Inc. (NASDAQ:ETSY) in its Q3 2022 investor letter:

Etsy, Inc. (NASDAQ:ETSY) is the leading e-commerce marketplace for buyers and sellers of unique, hard-to-find products that are “handmade, vintage, or a craft supply.” We believe the company has a long runway for continued top-line growth given its large addressable market and distinct product assortment. In addition, we have been impressed with the operational progress this management team has made since taking the helm in 2017. While Etsy’s longer term profit cycle momentum has been disrupted by a shrinking consumer wallet (40-year high inflation) and a shift to in-person experiences, the company proved more resilient than investors had expected in its recent earnings report (revenue and margins were better than expected, and a better-than feared outlook was provided). Examining the profit cycle opportunity through a longer term lens, we decided to add to our position during the quarter at an attractive discount to our PMV estimate.”
