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 reported impressive first-quarter results wherein both the earnings and revenues have grown on a year-over-year basis. The company continued to benefit from its solid Prime momentum during the reported quarter. Rapid adoption of Prime owing to its customer benefits and strengthening grocery services drove its top-line growth. Further, expanding content portfolio of Prime remained a major positive. Additionally, Amazon’s continued momentum in AWS remains a major positive. Strengthening AWS services and its growing adoption continued to aid Amazon’s cloud dominance. Notably, the stock has outperformed the industry it belongs to over a year. However, rising cloud competition from the likes of Microsoft Azure and Google cloud is a significant headwind. Also, heavy investment in fulfillment centers is a concern." (4/29/2019)
  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We expect continued top line momentum following an impressive holiday season given the healthy macro backdrop, strong retail sales growth in the U.S., the Prime membership fee increase in 1H:18, and outsized growth from AWS and advertising, which we believe will drive further operating margin expansion in 2019 despite the company’s intentions to ramp up investments throughout the year. Amazon is well-positioned as the leader in two large/fast growing markets (retail and cloud), and we believe the company’s advertising business, which is still in the early stages, will continue to benefit as more businesses shift ad budgets Amazon’s way given its dominance in product search. Our price target remains $2,300." (4/22/2019)
  • 3. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We remain PT, which remains based on a SOTP valuation, now on our newly introduced FY20 estimates that call for +20% top-line growth and >40% adj. CSOI growth through FY20." (1/31/2019)
  • 4. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We would characterize the holiday as solid overall (see our previous notes) and expect that AMZN continued to grow faster than overall retail. Consistent with 10-20% revenue growth guidance, annualization of the WFM acquisition should cause reported revenue growth to slow – we currently model 15% growth. We think AMZN’s long-term growth prospects remain intact." (1/29/2019)
