What are analysts saying about Amazon.com stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Amazon.com stock:

  • 1. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We recently increased our long term revenue estimates and raised our price target reflecting: (1) momentum in U.S. eCommerce sales which are benefiting from traditional retail dislocation and increased penetration of categories late to migrate online; (2) the growing Prime member base; (3) continued momentum in AWS; and (4) the emergence of non-retail business lines. In the near term we continue to believe heightened investment in strategic areas could drive margins below current expectations. We support where investment dollars are focused and maintain our positive view. We see strong likelihood of favorable outcomes from current investment and believe as the leader in two large and rapidly growing markets, Amazon has the opportunity to drive long term growth and market share gains." (4/24/2017)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "The company is expected to report 1Q17 earnings on Thursday, April 27, after market close, with a conference call at 5:30pm ET." (4/20/2017)
  • 3. Pacific Crest analysts commented, "AWS boasts a multiyear lead over Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud. However, heavy investments could increase the viability of these alternatives. After three years of outsized gains and a tripling of profits, AWS' growth could moderate this year and next. We are lowering our AWS estimates and sum-of-the-parts target by $10 to better reflect competitive risks. We also size the 3P retail business." (3/17/2017)
  • 4. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Amazon is one of the largest online retailers in the world. The company delivered mixed fourth quarter results with earnings beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate but revenues missing the same. Over the last one year, the stock has outperformed the Zacks Electronic Commerce industry. Amazon is driving value across all its businesses and especially the retail business remains very hard to beat on price, choice and convenience. The company has a solid loyalty system in Prime and its FBA strategy, and content addition continues to add selection to Prime memberships. The AWS generates much higher margins than retail, so it has a very positive impact on Amazon’s profitability. Devices and IoT is also a potential growth area. However, Prime saturation in the U.S. market and competition in online retail remains concern." (3/8/2017)
  • 5. FBN Securities analysts commented, "We retain our Outperform rating on AMZN and raise our PT from $875 to $925. In contrast to FQ3 when AMZN reported a slight revenue beat but missed on EPS, AMZN reported a FQ4 revenue miss (by 2%) but beat consensus GAAP EPS by 12% due mostly to a GM beat (33.8% vs. 32.9% consensus) with a small beat on opex. AWS grew well (up 47% Y/Y), but this is down from growth rates of 55-64% over the prior three quarters and revenue of $3.54B slightly missed consensus of $3.60B. We estimate that retail (non-AWS) GM% was 28.0%, similar to FQ3's 27.9% and up 1pp Y/Y." (2/3/2017)
