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 reported strong second-quarter earnings driven by robust performance from Amazon Web Services (AWS) and retail. Advertising also had a strong growth in the quarter. Moreover, retail continues to grow, driven by the Prime program, increasing engagement of Prime customers and solid third-party selection. Amazon is benefiting from an expanding AWS enterprise customer base. Notably, AWS generates much higher margins than retail, positively impacting Amazon’s profitability. Additionally, Amazon’s expanding distribution footprint bodes well for Prime. 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." (7/31/2018)
