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's stock has outperformed the industry it belongs to on a year-to-date basis. Amazon is benefiting from an expanding AWS enterprise customer base, benefits from Whole Foods acquisition and increasing number of paid Prime members. In the first-quarter, AWS was selected by enterprise customers like GoDaddy, Cox Automotive, Shutterfly, NextGen Healthcare, Amway and LG Electronics. Moreover, collaboration with VMware is expected to boost AWS product offerings in the long haul. Notably, AWS generates much higher margins than retail, positively impacting Amazon’s profitability. Additionally, Amazon’s expanding distribution footprint bodes well for Prime. However, the company's increased operating expenses to support expansion of its business into new markets and territories, localize the availability of products and grow its content will keep margins under pressure." (6/27/2018)
  • 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We think this could be an investment year in Whole Foods. On April 10, Amazon announced that Prime members in the Los Angeles area can now order Whole Foods groceries with free 2-hour delivery (>$35). This service launched in February 2018 and is now available in 7 cities (Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas, Virginia Beach, San Francisco, Atlanta, and L.A.), and has largely replaced Amazon Prime Fresh service, which offered grocery delivery for $14.99/month in select cities. Whole Foods is ending its rewards program and will transition to Prime shortly. We also believe that price investment will continue." (4/24/2018)
  • 3. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We expect continued topline momentum following a strong holiday season stemming from a healthy macro backdrop, record consumer sentiment levels, and the company’s expanding Prime membership base, which recently surpassed 100mm customers. Our 1Q:18/FY 2018 operating margin estimates of 1.8%/2.1% are below the Street’s forecasts of 2.0%/2.6% as the company continues to invest in logistics and emerging businesses/geographies such as devices, video content, grocery and India. Amazon is a leader in two large and rapidly growing markets, eCommerce and cloud services and remains well positioned for long term continued market share gains. We continue to support where Amazon’s investments are focused and would remain buyers on any weakness stemming from peripheral issues." (4/23/2018)
