10:08 EDTAMZN, NFLXAmazon advances after analyst sees most Prime users keeping service
Shares of Amazon.com (AMZN) are outperforming the market after research firm Piper Jaffray predicted that the company would retain most of its Prime subscribers following the recent price increase for the service. WHAT'S NEW: After Amazon.com raised the annual price of its Prime service to $99 from $79, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster predicted that 85% of the service's current subscribers would retain their memberships. After analyzing mentions of Prime on Twitter following the announcement of the price increase, Munster reports that 80% of the mentions were positive. Meanwhile, the number of Google searches for the words "cancel Amazon Prime" spiked 193% immediately following the announcement of the price increase, but that jump was much lower than the increase for the search term "cancel Netflix" following that company's price hike in 2011, added the analyst. Amazon's price increase could raise its operating income by $150M over the next year, added Munster. The analyst kept a $420 price target and Overweight rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: UBS analyst Eric Sheridan has been less upbeat about Amazon's price hike. In a note to investors on February 2, Sheridan argued that the company would have to provide Prime users with additional services in order to justify the price increase. Additionally, Amazon may have to spend more money on marketing Prime in the wake of the price increase, Sheridan believes. The analyst had a $375 price target and Neutral rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Amazon climbed $6.01, or 1.78%, to $344.31.
