What are Wall Street analysts saying about stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Amazon reported third-quarter results wherein both earnings and revenues improved significantly year over year driven by strengthening retail position. The company’s expanding physical presence and strengthening Prime program aided its momentum in the retail sector. Moreover, the rapid expansion of grocery services via Prime was a major positive throughout the quarter. Further, expanding customer base of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and its cloud offerings contributed well to the top-line growth during the reported quarter. Additionally, the improving Alexa features and the growing number of device compatible with it are expected to aid the company’s presence in the virtual assistant market. Notably, the stock has outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. However, intensifying competition in the cloud computing market is a significant headwind. Also, heavy investment in fulfillment centers remains a concern." (11/12/2018)
  • 2. Benchmark Co. analysts commented, "We expect the shares will be rattled by the shortfall, even if 4Q guidance is likely highly conservative, but believe the transition from growth to value is still a ways away. We expect the naysayers to harp on the continued deceleration of paid unit growth, down again from 17% last quarter to 15% in 3Q, as well as the reduced growth in square foot FC expansion to 15% for the year, implying an excess capacity situation. We suspect Amazon effectively overbuilt in 2016/2017 to ensure they didn’t face a repeat of capacity restraints, while efficiency improvements should simply help drop more dollars to the bottom line rather than indicate an incremental unit slowdown." (10/26/2018)
  • 3. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We remain confident that AWS revenue can grow to $46B by 2020 based on current cloud momentum and new products. We also tracked a 31% y/ y upswing in AWS job postings in 3Q18 compared to 32% last year. Continued growth in job openings could support the future growth trajectory. We will also be at AWS’s annual re:Invent conference on Nov. 26-30 looking for continued product innovation and announcements." (10/22/2018)
  • 4. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We are adding and removing Alibaba. We are making this change given near-term optimism for Amazon and an increasingly uncertain China macro environment." (10/12/2018)
