18:35 EDTAMZNAmazon changes tax policy for European sales, WSJ says
Amazon has begun registering its European sales in individual countries rather than reporting all sales in Luxembourg, reports The Wall Street Journal, citing a company spokesperson and a person familiar with the matter. Sources said the policy was enacted May 1, and has been implemented in the U.K., Spain, Germany, and Italy thus far. The move comes amid increasing scrutiny of Amazon's European tax practices, and the Journal notes that it could raise the company's tax bill. Reference Link

08:23 EDTAMZNAmazon.com price target raised to $520 on bullish trends at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley raised Amazon.com's price target to $520 from $450 on bullish trends and multiple sources of potential upside. The firm's analyst believes the 2016 consensus gross profit view is 5% too low and implies a deceleration to 0% in 2016, which has never happened. Morgan Stanley said fulfillment costs per unit are falling for the first time since 2010 and will continue in 2015, but expects a return to investment in 2016. The firm also said international retail losses aren't as bad as perceived and believes they will moderate in 2016, given recent incremental discipline. Morgan believes Street estimates for AWS are too conservative, given its easy comps and the Q1 margin upside. As a result, Morgan Stanley raised its gross profit estimates for Amazon by 1% for 2015 and by 2% for 2016 and keeps its Overweight rating on the shares.

11:47 EDTAMZNAmazon unlikely hurt by Google Buy button in next 3 years, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said he does not expect Google's (GOOG) addition of a "Buy" button for mobile e-commerce hurting Amazon.com (AMZN) over the next 1 to 3 years, but he does believe Google's plan presents a longer-term threat to "chip away" at Amazon's growth rate. However, Munster thinks it will be "next to impossible" for Google to replicate Amazon's core infrastructure and customer experience and he keeps an Overweight rating and $475 price target on Amazon shares.
