THE INCREDIBLE UPTREND IN AMAZON

Today's chart highlights the impressive price action in shares of online retailer Amazon.

Since launching in 1995, Amazon has transformed its business from an online bookstore into a one-stop shop for all retail products.

Today, the company sells more than 200 million items, including everything from food to furniture. Amazon has its own popular e-book reader and is the No. 1 provider of "cloud computing" services in the world.

While the majority of retail is still done in brick-and-mortar stores like Wal-Mart and Target, Amazon has all but cornered the online retail market. Its Amazon Prime service quickly delivers goods to nearly 50 million people across the U.S.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the company does more in sales than its next dozen competitors combined.

Last week, shares rose nearly 15% in one day after the company reported strong earnings, hitting a new all-time high. Shares are up more than 350% over the past five years as Amazon continues its long-term move higher...

Earnings Season Winners — Amazon (AMZN)

Market Capitalization: $250 billion

Amazon (AMZN) finds itself in the headlines this week — although not quite for the same reasons that it was less than a month ago.

On July 24, AMZN stock was the talk of Wall Street after posting a surprise profit; shares of the e-commerce giant instantly rocketed 17% higher on the news.

Today, Amazon’s in the news as CEO Jeff Bezos spars with The New York Times over a story criticizing the intensity and lack of empathy at the workplace. But nevermind that, back to the bottom line.

The highlight of Amazon’s second quarter was the rapid growth of Amazon Web Services, or AWS, which makes up for just 8% of revenue but more than 36% of Amazon’s operating profits.

With Wall Street constantly skeptical about Amazon’s long-term plan to take over the world tomorrow at the expense of profitability today, AWS gave some investors hope that the company could, you know, actually make money before it achieves world domination.

Cloud Stocks to Buy: Amazon (AMZN)

It wouldn’t feel right to leave out one of the biggest hybrid cloud provider from this list. Indeed, cloud stocks like Amazon (AMZN) are the backbone of a key aspect of the hybrid trend.

For context, hybrid infrastructure might mean a mix between on-premise and cloud storage, or it might mean a mix between public and private clouds, depending on the context. Heck, even within the former hybrid model, the latter convergence might be evident.

Either way, public clouds have an important role for everyone from consumers to small businesses to enterprise giants, especially as costs continue to slide.

Amazon is one of the biggest players in that space, and even those falling costs translate to its thickest margins, making it a natural company to give a nod to in this list of cloud stocks.

Year-End Stocks to Buy: Amazon (AMZN)

Earnings are a part of the bullish thesis for this next pick as well — and that isn’t usually something said about Amazon (AMZN).

Historically, Amazon’s story has been that of sweet sales growth and nonexistent profits, which investors haven’t seemed to mind as evidenced by this year’s 60% gains.

But AMZN posted a surprise profit in the most recent quarter, and is expected to tally earnings of $1.57 per share for all of 2015 — quite the improvement from a 52-cent loss a year ago.

A strong chart — alongside more anecdotal evidence, like continued content success and ongoing technological innovation — is already good reason to think AMZN stock can keep the momentum up.

Seeing results in the black could be the cherry on top for old and new Amazon stock fans.

Companies That Should Split: Amazon (AMZN)

Amazon.com’s (AMZN) cloud business, Amazon Web Services, is a bright star for its business, and far more valuable than most realize.

AWS is AMZN’s cloud infrastructure services business, controlling a 30% market share in an industry with 50% annual growth.

Looking ahead, analysts expect AWS to reach $10 billion in revenues by next year, and earlier this year, I made a case that Amazon Web Services could be worth $100 billion if spun off by itself due to the growth outlook and AMZN’s leading market share.

If AWS would be worth $100 billion by the time AMZN spun it off, that would leave a valuation under $150 billion for a core e-commerce and media business that should create close to $100 billion in revenue this year.

While that doesn’t make AMZN look particularly cheap, it does make the company look more fairly valued compared to today. By splitting AWS and AMZN’s core businesses, the former would have the opportunity to pursue new growth opportunities and partnerships independent of Amazon, whereas AMZN would be able to focus exclusively on growing its core business without worrying about that small, but very valuable cloud services business.

Long-term, it would appear the best move to drive shareholder value.

Scary Stocks: Amazon (AMZN)

It’s tough (and unpopular) to bet against a momentum name like Amazon(AMZN), which the market loves to love — the company can simply do no wrong in many investors’ eyes.

But, every couple of years or so, the stock has to remind investors that corporate results don’t quite justify the outsized gains AMZN is dishing out.

And after more than a 100% runup since the beginning of the year — the biggest runup we’ve seen in that amount of time since 2009 — that reminder is overdue for AMZN stock.

Yes, the revenue and profit growth of the relatively new Amazon Web Services division is impressive. The AWS top line nearly doubled last quarter, reaching $2.08 billion, and the company turned $521 million of that into operating income.

Both were records for Amazon Web Services. We’re talking about a $294 billion company, though, that generated laughable net income of $79 million last quarter. There’s no amount of conceivable growth in AWS that could justify the forward-looking P/E of 113.

When the market remembers that fact (and it will), the AMZN profit-takers are going to come out of the woodwork.
