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’s strengthening retail position with the help of its growing global footprint and distribution strength remains its key growth driver. Moreover, robust Prime program and its benefits will continue to aid Amazon’s retail business. Also, the rapid expansion of grocery services via Prime is a major positive. Additionally, the company’s growing brick and mortar presence is a tailwind. Further, increasing AWS regions and its growing adoption will continue to aid Amazon’s cloud momentum. Also, rising number of Alexa compatible devices are possitive. The stock has outperformed the industry over a year. The company's growing holiday initiatives are likely to aid its performance in the current holiday season. However, the management has lowered its sales outlook for this season due to changes in Indian holiday timing. Also, rising cloud battle and heavy investment in fulfillment centers are headwinds." (1/15/2019)
  • 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)
