Amazon

Amazon's massive e-commerce platform accounts for about 38% of all online sales in the U.S., and there's likely more room for growth from the company. That's because only 11% of U.S. retail sales now happen online, which leaves plenty more room for Amazon's sales to grow.

Not only is the company leading the e-commerce charge in the U.S., but it's figured out a way to make more money from its platform through its lucrative Prime memberships.

Amazon has more than 100 million subscribers signed up for its Prime membership, and they spend, on average, $800 more per year on its platform than non-Prime members.

But while Amazon makes the vast majority of its revenue from its e-commerce business, Amazon Web Services (AWS) generates most of its profit.

AWS is the largest cloud computing platform in the world and easily outpaces its competitors in market share. While cloud computing might seem like an odd play for Amazon, the company is well-positioned to benefit as public cloud computing grows into a $278 billion market over the next two years.

Amazon: 32% Upside

Switching gears now to a stock that needs no introduction, Morgan Stanley Brian Nowak steps in to suggest investors take another look at Amazon (AMZN - Get Report). The e-commerce giant has seen its stock slide 14% from the $2,020 share price it sported just three months ago. But Nowak expects Amazon to recover those losses, and more. (To watch Nowak's track record, click here)

Projecting a $2,200 share price within 12 months, Nowak rates Amazon "overweight," and argues that although the introduction of "1-day" shipping guarantees will squeeze profit margins, it should also drive demand for Amazon's goods and accelerate revenue growth, which at 20% last quarter was well below the company's 25% average revenue growth rate for the last five years.

Nowak also makes the case that offering faster shipping will help Amazon to "penetrate new buckets of consumer expenditure," including in particular consumable products which can spoil if not shipped and delivered quickly.

As more of Amazon's customers buy more short-shelf-life goods from the company, this will in turn enable the company to "garner incremental wallet share."

Net-net, therefore, Nowak argues that Amazon stock should be a buy in the long-term, despite "volatile" trends as it rolls out its new shipping regimen.

The analyst's $2,200 target price implies that after losing 14% on their stock over the last three months, investors could now gain nearly twice as much -- 27% -- by keeping the faith and sticking with this strong buy stock.

Wall Street’s confidence on the retail giant speaks for itself; AMZN has received a whopping 30 'buy' ratings in the last three months vs. only one 'hold' rating.

Meanwhile, the $2,297.24 consensus price target suggests a potential upside of 33% from the current share price.

This shocking stat will make you want to buy Amazon stock after its recent beatdown

by Brian Sozzi

The company’s third quarter earnings report is often very volatile as the digital beast spends aggressively ahead of the holiday season. That usually doesn’t jibe well with always inflated expectations on Wall Street regarding Amazon’s profits.

This go around looks to be no different. Amazon shares fell 6% in pre-market trading on Friday as third quarter earnings badly whiffed consensus forecasts, coming in at $4.23 a share versus the $4.58 a share expected.

Profits were held back by Amazon’s $800 million investment in the expansion of one-day delivery services.

Meanwhile, Amazon Web Services sales growth slowed to 35% versus 37% in the second quarter. Amazon Web Services (AWS) also saw its profit margins come under pressure amid increased competitive activity in cloud services.

The company warned on fourth quarter profits, as it prepared to spend $1.5 billion more in its one-day delivery rollout.

Thill continues to rate Amazon’s stock at a Buy with a price target of $2,180.

Amazon earnings fall for first time in more than two years, stock drops in late trading

By Jeremy C. Owens

Amazon AMZN reported third-quarter profit of $2.1 billion, or $4.23 a share, on sales of $69.98 billion after the market closed Thursday.

Sales rose from $56.58 billion a year ago, but earnings declined from $5.75 a share, the first time Amazon earnings have shrunk year-over-year since June 2017.

Analysts on average expected Amazon to report earnings of $4.59 a share on sales of $68.83 billion, according to FactSet.


Amazon’s forecast for the holiday quarter came in short of estimates for both profit and sales, as the company predicted net revenue of $80 billion to $86.5 billion with operating income of $1.2 billion to $2.9 billion.

Analysts on average were predicting fourth-quarter operating profit of $4.19 billion on sales of $87.39 billion, according to FactSet, after Amazon reported operating income of $3.79 billion on revenue of $72.38 billion in the holiday quarter a year ago.

Amazon

It's become impossible to ignore Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) dominance in e-commerce or cloud computing.

Pretty much everyone is aware of Amazon's impact in the e-commerce space. According to eMarketer in June, Amazon would be responsible for 38% of all e-commerce sales in 2019, and its Prime membership is doing an excellent job of keeping people within its ecosystem. But the real superstar here is Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The company's cloud services platform is growing more than twice as fast as its e-commerce operations, and the margins for AWS are light years ahead of every other business segment.

Through the first nine months of 2019, AWS was responsible for $6.6 billion in operating income on "only" $25.1 billion in sales, which compares to $4.1 billion in operating income on $168 billion in net sales for all of its other business segments.

Amazon's business is only getting stronger as AWS become a larger percentage of total sales. This makes Amazon and its historically low PEG ratio a standout for growth investors.
