What are analysts saying about stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about stock:

  • 1. 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)
  • 2. 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)
  • 3. 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)
  • 4. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, " We maintain an Overweight rating on AMZN while adjusting our PT to $965 from $1,000 on mixed 4Q results. Top line missed cons. est's as growth was impacted by greater FX headwinds and price cuts to AWS, but higher-than-expected margins in North America (NA) drove bottom line outperformance even as increased investments in infrastructure, video content and India weighed on profitability. Our positive bias on AMZN reflects its 1) leadership in e-commerce (with ~35% share of US market and global footprint), 2) leadership in the vast and rapidly growing cloud computing segment, 3) intense focus on the consumer and on the value proposition, and 4) a compelling valuation at 19.0x FY17 EV/EBITDA." (2/3/2017)
  • 5. Instinet analysts commented, "Intestinal Fortitude Required."DiClemente commented, "While we had expected aggressive investment to remain a near-term theme ahead of 4Q's results, what we had not anticipated was that revenue growth expectations for 2017 would also falter. Amazon 4Q revenue came in slightly higher than the midpoint of guidance and below our and the Street estimates, an unusual result, with the biggest miss versus our expectations coming from International. We note, however, that FX was a bigger drag on International revenues than expected. The softer revenue narrative continues into 1Q, where the high end of guidance comes in below our estimates. If revenue is going to decelerate for AMZN, then the burden shifts to operating income and FCF to carry the financial story. While both of those had a great 4Q, the OI guidance and heavy capex imply further investment ahead. In the near term, estimates go lower; while we remain bullish in the long term, we lower our Target Price to $925 from $950. FY17E EPS from $8.20 to $7.66; FY18E EPS from $14.13 to $13.37."
