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

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Amazon.com stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Amazon continues to ride on its robust performance in the retail space on the back of its vast e-commerce platform, fast delivery services, Prime program, increasing engagement of Prime customers and solid third-party selection. Moreover, Amazon’s expanding distribution footprint bodes well for Prime. Further, Amazon Web Services (AWS) also continues to perform well, owing to its expanding enterprise customer base. Notably, AWS generates much higher margins than retail, positively impacting Amazon’s profitability. Additionally, the company’s advertising business is also gaining traction. Shares have outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. However, an anticipated increase in fulfillment cost prior to the holiday season can put margins under pressure. Moreover, intensifying competition in the cloud computing market from the likes of Microsoft Azure and Google cloud is a significant headwind." (10/15/2018)
  • 2. 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)
  • 3. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We are raising our AWS revenue and profit estimates and see $9.9B, or $19.69/share, in EBIT potential for 2019." (7/27/2018)
