Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) shares are dropping below the $1,800 level and are looking set for a drop below their 200-day moving average after failing to recapture the prior highs set last summer.

The latest is that the company could be considering a push into the wireless space with a possible purchase of Boost Mobile from Sprint (NYSE:S)/T-Mobile (NASDAQ:TMUS).

The focus continues to be on the strong growth at Amazon Web Services, but that isn’t generating the excitement among investors that it used to.

The company will next report results on July 25 after the close.

Analysts are looking for earnings of $5.51 per share on revenues of $62.5 billion.

When the company last reported on April 25, earnings of $7.09 beat estimates by $2.43 on a 17% rise in revenues.

3 Reasons Amazon Stock Should Be One of Your Core Holdings

by Tom Taulli

The acquisition of Whole Foods has not been a winner and the core ecommerce segment has seen decelerating growth.

There’s also indications that the federal government is looking at Amazon.com as a violator of antitrust laws.

With annual revenues at $240 billion, it’s extremely difficult to keep up the growth rate.


1. Healthcare: In May 2018, Amazon.com acquired PillPack, a next-generation online pharmacy. $500 billion market.
2. Online Advertising: Amazon is also working aggressively to expand its options, such as with video search ads.
3. Delivery: Freight brokerage services.

Amazon

Just as Apple has seemingly been the no-brainer investment of the past decade, Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) looks to be the no-brainer growth opportunity you won't want to miss over the next decade. And yes, this takes into account that the company is already worth almost $1 trillion.

When most folks think of Amazon, they rightly think of its dominant retail platform. There's certainly nothing wrong with this impression of Amazon as it's a big reason the company has been able to generate significant sales and build up an incredible following through its Prime membership.

In the first quarter of 2019, $52 billion out of $59.7 billion in net sales was essentially derived from retail sales, either through its Amazon platform, its wholly owned grocery chain Whole Foods, or other means.

But what's particularly interesting about Amazon is that it's the company's cloud services for small-and-medium-sized businesses, Amazon Web Services (AWS), that's really the key to its future growth.

Not to belittle the importance of Amazon's monstrous e-commerce market share, or the loyalty that its Prime membership brings, but none of its retail operations can hold a candle to the margins AWS brings to the table.

Out of the aforementioned $52 billion in net sales from retail, Amazon logged operating income of $2.2 billion in the first quarter. But from just $7.7 billion in AWS sales, Amazon also logged $2.2 billion in operating income.

With AWS growing at a much faster pace than its traditional e-commerce business, AWS will continue to represent a larger percentage of sales over time, thereby improving margins, cash flow, and profitability.

Not surprisingly, Wall Street has forecast a near-tripling in cash flow per share for Amazon between 2018 ($61.45 per share) and 2022 ($178.40 per share).

In other words, AWS makes Amazon a much more reasonably valued stock than you probably realize.

Amazon (AMZN)

Not only is Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) CEO and founder Jeff Bezos a great chief executive, but Amazon has its hands in so many pies — including a very profitable cloud business that generated $7.3 billion of operating income last year — that it’s hard to fathom just how big Amazon could be a decade from now.

While Amazon’s AWS cloud business is a big deal, Amazon Prime is the service that delivers the goods when it comes to building the foundation for AMZN stock. More than 100 million people subscribe to Amazon Prime at $119 per year.

It’s not the billions of dollars of annual subscription revenue that matters, but the amount each of those subscribers spends on other Amazon products.

Statistics show that 76% of Amazon Prime members spend more than they did before paying the annual $119 fee.

That’s what you call “pulling power,” and it’s a big reason why AMZN stock will be a winner for the long haul and why it’s a top stock to buy for the next decade.

The World’s Greatest Retail Company Just Hit Our “Strong Buy” List

Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) is one of those companies. Since July, the stock has pulled back from a record of roughly $2,050 per share.

It is currently trading at a more than 10% discount to those levels as concerns about a trade war and the U.S. economy weigh on the broader S&P 500.

This is a stock that could easily hit $2,400 by the end of the second quarter in 2020.

It also launched and expanded e-commerce operations in key growth markets like Brazil, Mexico, Australia, Turkey, and India. Within five years, these five nations could bolster Amazon’s revenue from $6 billion in 2018 to as much as $27 billion.

Shares closed the day Wednesday at $1,763 per share. With a price target of $2,400 by the end of 2020, investors are looking at a possible 36% gain.

But this isn’t just a stock to buy and sell on a whim. It should be a cornerstone of your portfolio as it continues to grow. There’s a solid case for AMZN stock to hit $3,000 by 2021, which represents about 63% upside from today’s current price.

Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN)

Another large services stocks to bear in mind is Amazon. The company has scored no less than 30 back-to-back buy ratings in the last three months. What’s more analysts believe the stock can soar by 30% in the coming months. That would take the current share price from $1,765 to $2,286.

Most recently, Jefferies analyst Brent Thill released a very bullish report on Amazon’s outlook. In particular he has high hopes for cloud services platform, Amazon Web Services (AWS). According to Gartner forecasts, the cloud-computing market will more than double to $315 billion in 2023 from $135 billion last year.

“AWS remains the dominant Cloud player, set to capture the majority of forward industry growth as the de facto infrastructure provider,” he wrote. “We believe AWS would be worth [$300 billion to $400 billion] as a standalone company.”

As a result, the analyst reiterated his AMZN buy rating with a price target of $2,300 (31% upside potential). Note that Thill is one of the Top 10 analysts ranked by TipRanks (out of over 5,200), adding weight to the call.
