13:00 EDTAMZNAmazon.com levels to watch
Shares appear to be trying to hold the line at the $550 area as the afternoon session begins. That is still over $68 of upside, but down nearly $42 from the after-hours session high yesterday. There is a risk the move is broadly extended and blow-off top at least in the short-term. Support is at the session low at $549.67. Without any established support price retracement is likely to follow round-number and common option strikes. Next support on that basis below the low would be $545 and then at $540. Resistance similarly is at $555.

10:09 EDTAMZNAmazon shares, price targets soar following earnings beat
Shares of Amazon.com (AMZN) are surging this morning and research firms are rushing to increase their price targets on the stock after the e-commerce giant unexpectedly reported a quarterly profit and gave a better than expected revenue forecast for its new quarter. UPGRADES: Barclays analyst Paul Vogel upgraded Amazon to Overweight from Equal Weight, saying the online retailer's margins are expanding much faster than previously thought. Vogel views the company's outside the U.S. and Web Services revenue growth as both a surprise and sustainable, telling investors that the second quarter "was too good in our view to wait" for an upgrade. He raised his price target for Amazon shares to $700 from $412. B. Riley analyst Scott Tilghman also upgraded Amazon this morning, upping it to Buy from Neutral as he also believes the company's revenue upside looks sustainable. Tilghman, who believes margin upside is likely to follow, raised his price target for the stock to $646 from $428. TARGETS ABOVE $700: JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth raised his December 2016 price target for Amazon.com to $710 and reiterates an Overweight rating on the stock, as he believes Amazon is now benefiting from its investments in Prime, category expansion and fulfillment centers. Meanwhile, Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak hiked his price target on Amazon.com to $740, which is the highest among firms tracked by Bloomberg at time of writing. Nowak, who entitled his note "The Everything Quarter," said the company's business is inflecting around the globe and noted that top-line growth accelerated in all four of its main retail segments for the second quarter in a row. PRICE ACTION: In early trading following its report last night, Amazon shares jumped 16% to about $561 per share.

Baird analyst Colin Sebastian raised his price target for Amazon.com to $630 saying the company's Q2 was a "pristine quarter almost across the board."
