05:49 EDTAMZNPiper's Munster sees attractive entry point for Amazon shares
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster is bullish on Amazon.com shares into the company's December quarter results.

He believes Street estimates are mis-modeling Amazon's margin expansion in 2016 and thinks the company's unit growth will likely exceed expectations. He views current share levels as an attractive entry point for investors and keeps an Overweight rating on Amazon with an $800 price target. The stock closed Friday up $21.36 to $596.38.
