13:21 EDTAMZNEarnings Preview: Amazon shares up almost 7% over last three months
Amazon.com (AMZN) is expected to report second quarter earnings after the market close on Thursday, July 24 with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Amazon.com is an online retail company that also provides consumer electronics and cloud computing services. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of (15c) on revenue of $19.34B. The consensus range is (51c)-7c for EPS, and $19.0B-$19.65B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Amazon.com reported first quarter EPS of 23c against estimates of 23c, on revenue of $19.74B against estimates of $19.43B. The company gave Q2 revenue guidance of $18.1B-$19.8B and Q1 operating income guidance of ($455M)-($55M). In its earnings conference call, Amazon said its AWS usage and third party growth continues to be strong. NEWS: Amazon announced the launches of a Fire Phone with a 4.7-inch display with Gorilla Glass 3. It also announced an unlimited ad-free music streaming service called Prime Music and a Kindle Unlimited subscription service. Amazon expanded same-day shipping service by allowing later ordering times as well as adding Sunday delivery to 15 cities in addition to Los Angeles and New York. The company also continued in a public battle with publisher Hachette as it refused orders and buying less inventory. ChannelAdvisor reported Amazon SSS grew 27% in April, 28.1% in May and 34.4% in June. STREET RESEARCH: Piper Jaffray said Amazon's music service is irrelevant due to its relatively low amount of songs, but will become relevant over time. It also said that the Amazon smartphone is a good start, although it lacks an app ecosystem. BMO Capital said the company's device could help drive additional wallet share and may spur additional consumers to buy Prime memberships. JMP Securities adds that the phone may take some time for it to gain meaningful share. Ahead of earnings, the company was downgraded at Citigroup, citing Amazon's "aggressive investment" in web services could pressure earnings over the next few quarters. PRICE ACTION: Amazon.com shares have risen more than $23, or 6.9%, over the last three months. In Thursday midday trading ahead of the Q2 report, Amazon.com shares are up fractionally.

06:16 EDTAMZNAmazon unveils 'Make an Offer' for customers to negotiate lower prices
Amazon.com has announced the "Make an Offer" experience that allows customers to negotiate even lower prices on thousands of items. Expanding on Amazonís traditional fixed price model, the new pricing feature allows customers to offer to buy items at even lower prices. If agreed upon, customers can then purchase the items at a savings from the listed price. To start, more than 150,000 items from sellers on Amazon are enabled with the "Make an Offer" experience across Sports and Entertainment Collectibles, Collectible Coins and Fine Art. The new feature will expand to hundreds of thousands of items from sellers in 2015. The "Make an Offer" feature is not an auction format. All negotiations are 1:1 and private between individual customers and sellers. A seller is able to accept a customerís offer at any time. The intention is to lower prices, and a customer negotiating with a seller will never pay more than the listed price.
