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 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)
  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We are raising our operating margin estimates for FY:18 and beyond though modestly reducing our near-term revenue estimates. We reiterate our Buy rating and maintain our $2020 target price. Key Points Margin ahead of expectations; revenue modestly below the Street: Amazon reported 2Q:18 revenue growth of 37% y/y FX-adj. to $52.9B, modestly below our / consensus expectations of $53.6B (+39% y/y FX-adj.) / $53.4B (+38% y/y FX-adj.) and slightly above the midpoint of the guided range ($51.0B-$54.0B). Paid unit growth decelerated for the fourth consecutive quarter, growing 17% y/y (versus 22% last quarter). AWS revenue accelerated sequentially with growth of 49% y/y FX-adj. to $6.1B, ahead of our consensus-matching estimate of $6.0B, marking the third consecutive of acceleration." (7/27/2018)
