10:40 EDTEBAY, AMZN, BKSAmazon.com slides after guidance disappoints
Shares of online retailer Amazon.com (AMZN) are falling after the company’s second quarter outlook failed to impress the street. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Amazon.com reported first quarter earnings per share of 23c and revenue of $19.74B, against consensus views of 23c and $19.43B, respectively. WHAT’S NOTABLE: The company forecast Q2 operating income of ($455M)-($55M) and Q2 revenue of $18.1B-$19.8B, compared to consensus of $19.03B. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, analyst commentary was decidedly negative. Three firms -- Citigroup, Wells Fargo, and Deutsche Bank -- all lowered their respective price targets on Amazon.com. The firms cited the company's Q2 sales guidance, which came in below its expectations at the mid-point, as well as its Q2 operating income guidance, which came in below expectations, as reasons for the downgrades. Another firm, Raymond James, downgraded Amazon.com to Outperform from Strong Buy, citing mixed Q1 results, a continued significant investment cycle, and slowing unit growth and media sales. The firm lowered its price target on the shares to $391 from $443. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Amazon.com is down 32.26, or about 9.6%, to $304.89 on heavy trading volume. Despite today’s pull back, the stock has gained over 10% over the past twelve months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Others in the online retail space include eBay (EBAY) and Barnes & Noble (BKS).
