What are Wall Street analysts saying about Amazon.com stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Amazon.com stock:
  • 1. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We think this could be an investment year in Whole Foods. On April 10, Amazon announced that Prime members in the Los Angeles area can now order Whole Foods groceries with free 2-hour delivery (>$35). This service launched in February 2018 and is now available in 7 cities (Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas, Virginia Beach, San Francisco, Atlanta, and L.A.), and has largely replaced Amazon Prime Fresh service, which offered grocery delivery for $14.99/month in select cities. Whole Foods is ending its rewards program and will transition to Prime shortly. We also believe that price investment will continue." (4/24/2018)
  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We expect continued topline momentum following a strong holiday season stemming from a healthy macro backdrop, record consumer sentiment levels, and the company’s expanding Prime membership base, which recently surpassed 100mm customers. Our 1Q:18/FY 2018 operating margin estimates of 1.8%/2.1% are below the Street’s forecasts of 2.0%/2.6% as the company continues to invest in logistics and emerging businesses/geographies such as devices, video content, grocery and India. Amazon is a leader in two large and rapidly growing markets, eCommerce and cloud services and remains well positioned for long term continued market share gains. We continue to support where Amazon’s investments are focused and would remain buyers on any weakness stemming from peripheral issues." (4/23/2018)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Amazon has outperformed the industry it belongs to in the past year. However, President Trump’s recent tweet attacks have somewhat dented the momentum. Nevertheless, the company’s expanding AWS enterprise customer base and increasing number of paid Prime members is positive. AWS generates much higher margins than retail, positively impacting Amazon’s profitability. However, increased operating expenses to support expansion of its business into new markets and territories, localize the availability of products and grow its content will keep margins under pressure. The company has been rumored to acquire India’s dominant e-Commerce provider Flipkart, which although has slim chances to get approval, will boost its market share. Meanwhile, estimates have been stable ahead of the company’s Q1 earnings release." (4/4/2018)
  • 4. Leerink Swann analysts commented, "unmatched scale" will certainly pose a challenge for Amazon should it enter the space, the analyst wrote (see Souda's track record here). But it is unlikely in the first place Amazon will try to take over Thermo Fisher's market, as this has been an ongoing on-and-off rumor for the past six years.In fact, it would be challenging for Amazon to try and take over the channel for four reasons, including:Lab supplies is a very small market at $15 billion as opposed to a $300 to $400 billion PBM market Amazon may find more lucrative.TMO's stickiness would be very hard for anyone to break.Low-value purchase orders are streamlined to Thermo Fisher in a way that Amazon may not be able to replicate.Thermo Fisher deals with complex products that require large sales and support teams.Finally, it is difficult to imagine a scenario where Amazon supplies restriction enzymes, proteases, QPCRs, sequencing supplies, Nanodrops and LC-MS products."We believe AMZN is fully capable of supplying orders of IT hardware and has taken share from CDW-G (the government/academic IT hardware provider) among universities and government accounts, but same cannot be said for Fisher's catalog (Catalog LINK) just yet," (10/30/2017)
