10:51 EDTAMZNAmazon falls after results, guidance trail estimates
Shares of on-line retailer Amazon.com (AMZN) are sharply lower after the company’s fourth quarter results and first quarter guidance fell short of analysts’ expectations. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Amazon reported Q4 EPS of 51c and revenue of $25.59B, both of which trailed expectations of 66c and $26.06B, respectively. The company forecast Q1 operating income of ($200M)-$200M, compared to consensus 54c. The mid-point of its Q1 revenue guidance of $18.2B-$19.9B fell short of expectations of $19.67B. On the company’s earnings conference call, it said it was considering a $20-$40 increase in its Prime membership fee, which is currently $79 per year. ANALYST REACTION: This morning analyst commentary was mostly positive. Four separate research firms all raised their respective price targets on Amazon following its Q4 results, with Benchmark Co. in particular bumping its price target for Amazon's stock to $500 from $400 per share. Another firm, Topeka, lowered its price target on the shares to $450 from $485 based on slightly lower estimates following Amazon’s revenue miss. The firm said the company reported a good quarter overall and maintained its Buy rating on the shares. Piper Jaffray said the positives for Amazon, namely market share gains and the upcoming increase in Prime pricing, outweigh the weaker unit growth and revenue miss in the company's Q4 results. Piper reiterated an Overweight rating on the stock with a $420 price target. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Amazon fell over $35 per share, or about 8.8%, to $367.52 on heavy trading volume. Even with today's pullback, the shares up approximately 40% over the past twelve months.
