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 is suffering from rising transportation and fulfillment center costs related to its free one-day shipping service. Further, growing adoption of e-commerce technique by traditional retailers poses a serious concern. Rising cloud competition from Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud is a risk. Although AWS dominates the cloud computing space, growth in its market share has become stagnant. The stock has underperformed its industry on a year-to-date basis. Nevertheless, Amazon continues to ride on its aggressive retail strategies and distribution strength. Moreover, rapid adoption of Prime driven by customer benefits and strengthening grocery services is a tailwind. Expanding AWS services and improving Alexa skills are positives. However, Amazon expects foreign exchange headwinds to continue impacting its top line." (9/25/2019)
  • 2. Benchmark Co. analysts commented, "We find this highly reminiscent of the warehouse and datacenter build-out days, if not to a lesser degree, as we expect elevated costs could begin to diminish as early as 4Q19. If shares demonstrate any kind of material weakness on the soft profit results today, we would be buyers on the pullback." (7/26/2019)
  • 3. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We support the company’s investments in faster shipping, AWS, advertising services and international, which we expect to persist over the next several quarters. We believe one-day shipping will allow Amazon to widen the convenience gap versus peers. We are increasing our FY:19 revenue forecast as we expect continued strength in Online Stores, and lowering our FY:19 operating margin forecast to reflect the company’s incremental investments in strategic areas. We remain $2,300 price target. above expectations driven by Online Stores sales growth. Amazon reported 2Q revenue growth of 21% y/y FX-adj. to $63.4B, modestly above our $63.0B estimate and near the high end of the guided range ($59.5-$63.5B)." (7/26/2019)
  • 4. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We believe that trends have improved since the 1Q and our higher estimates for U.S. retail underpin our increase in price target to $2,200." (7/22/2019)
