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 fourth-quarter 2018 results with earnings and revenues increasing significantly on a year-over-year basis. The company benefited from its ecommerce dominance as well as continued momentum in AWS. Rapid adoption of Prime, primarily due to its benefits, is a key catalyst. Moreover, Amazon’s growing global footprint and distribution strength remains along with rapid expansion of Prime enabled grocery services and growing physical presence are tailwinds. Further, increasing AWS regions and its growing adoption will continue to aid Amazon’s cloud momentum. Notably, shares have outperformed the industry in the past year based on these factors. However, first-quarter 2019 revenue guidance was disappointing. Also, rising cloud battle and heavy investment in fulfillment centers are headwinds." (2/5/2019)
  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We believe the quarter’s results and guidance are better than some feared heading into the report, though management commented there will be more investment in 2019 relative to 2018, which is impacting shares. This doesn’t change our positive view as we expect incremental investment to strengthen Amazon’s leadership position in retail and cloud services. We reiterate our Buy rating with a $2,300 PT." (2/1/2019)
  • 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)
