10:44 EDTAMZNLong-time Amazon bull sees revenue topping $200B by 2020
Several analysts have been upbeat on Amazon (AMZN) recently, after the company reported stronger than expected results last week and broke out details on its Web Services unit for the first time. Robert Baird analyst Colin Sebastian, however, is a long-time Amazon bull and predicted in a note to investors today that the company would generate $200B in revenue by 2020, with 5%-7% consolidated segment operating income. Analysts' consensus estimate for the company's fiscal year 2016 revenue is near $121B. WHAT'S NEW: Amazon's higher margin businesses, including Marketplace and its cloud services business, AWS, should subsidize its near-breakeven retail business, Sebastian believes. The company's disclosure of AWS' financial metrics supports the viability of that approach, according to the analyst. Meanwhile, Amazon will look to boost its retail revenue using a variety of means, including lower prices and local delivery, wrote Sebastian. Amazon is likely to continue to look to boost its revenue at the expense of its margins, but its consolidated segment operating income will be 5%-7% by 2020, according to Sebastian, who kept a $465 price target and Outperform rating on the shares. Though he did not update his price target, Sebastian noted that a "sum-of-the-parts" analysis suggests upside towards the $500 range for Amazon shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: JPMorgan upgraded Amazon following its results last week, and many firms, including Citi, Cantor, and Deutsche Bank, raised their price targets on the name. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Amazon slipped fractionally to trade near to $434 per share.

13:12 EDTAMZNEarnings Watch: Analysts mixed on Amazon ahead of Q1 report
Amazon.com (AMZN) is expected to report first quarter earnings after the market close on Thursday, April 23 with a conference call scheduled for 5:30 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 (13c) on revenue of $22.39B. The consensus range is (56c)-35c for EPS, and $21.74B-$22.88B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Amazon.com reported fourth quarter EPS of 45c against estimates of 17c, on revenue of $29.33B against estimates of $29.67B. The company gave Q1 revenue guidance of $20.9B-$22.9B and Q1 operating income guidance of ($450M)-$50M, compared to $146M in the year-ago period. Amazon also reported worldwide paid Prime memberships increased 53% in 2014. NEWS AND STREET RESEARCH: During Amazon’s Q4 earnings conference call, CFO Thomas Szkutak said the company will look to invest in China and India. In the past quarter, an Economics Times report said the company was planning to create its own fashion and lifestyle private brands in India. RBC Capital says the company’s outlook is still positive due to significant opportunity for growth in India. UBS noted that Amazon could benefit from restructuring its China operations, making a case for Amazon to exit the country as it faces stiff competition from Alibaba (BABA) and Jd.com (JD). Amazon.com expanded its two-hour delivery program to Brooklyn, Baltimore, Miami, Austin and Atlanta. Piper Jaffray said the expansion of the program is "encouraging" and will prevent retailers from gaining mindshare from Amazon. The company announced the launch of its Amazon Giveaway tool, AWS Marketplace, new Fire TV features and greenlit five new Amazon Original series, but it plans to shut down Amazon Webstore. ChannelAdvisor said Amazon SSS was up 27% in January, 22.7% in February and 24.6% in March. In recommendations, the company’s price target was raised RW Baird after the firm assigned a standalone value of $40B-$45B to Amazon Web Services. Its price target was also raised at Citigroup due the company’s upcoming disclosure of new segment metrics. Earlier this month, Cleveland Research said its checks indicate Amazon has in-line sales growth and margin expansion that will lead to modest upside Q1 CSOI. Jefferies adds that the company’s fulfillment strategy will drive revenue growth acceleration in the medium to longer-term margin improvement with scale. Baird also said that its Amazon.com survey suggests accelerating growth trends in product selection and Prime-eligible units. Piper Jaffray said it is positive on Amazon shares because the firm believes margins will exceed expectations for the next two quarters. Ahead of the company’s Q1 earnings report, Amazon was upgraded at Monness Crespi citing a the release of results for Amazon’s Web Service segment. The firm called it a "catalytic event" outside of the company’s "standard beat-and-raise" type of report. Amazon was downgraded, however, at BGC Financial due to the negative impact of currency. BGC added that it expects the company to "sustain its investment cycle regardless of overall profitability." PRICE ACTION: Amazon.com shares have increased over 24% over the last three months. In Thursday trading ahead of the Q1 report, Amazon.com shares are down 0.35%.

12:31 EDTBAOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after having been on a bit of a see-saw during morning trading. The averages opened in positive territory, soon turned negative, then back into positive ground following the release of a better than expected existing home sales report. The housing data was followed by a lift in the averages, which remained in positive ground near noon. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., existing home sales rose 6.1% to a 5.19M rate in March, which was better than the expected 3.1% increase to a rate of 5.03M. Crude oil inventories built up by 5.32M barrels last week, which was more than the consensus forecast for a 3.2M barrel build. In Asia, Japan's Nikkei 225 average closed above 20,000 for the first time since April 2000. In Europe, Germany raised its economic growth forecast for 2015 to 1.8%, which was up from the 1.5% growth it said it expected in January. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of McDonald's (MCD) advanced 2% after the company reported headline earnings that missed expectations but also said it is developing a turnaround plan to improve its performance and deliver "enduring profitable growth" that it plans to share in the first week of May. Also rising after its quarterly report was another globally recognized brand, Coca-Cola (KO), whose shares gained 1% after its comparable earnings per share topped the consensus estimate. A third member of the Dow, Boeing (BA), slid over 2.5% after its earnings beat expectations but its revenue fell short of the consensus forecast... Visa (V) rose 5% and MasterCard (MA) advanced over 4% after China's State Council announced overnight that the country will regulate the market access for bankcard transaction clearing institutions, which analysts think might allow both companies to compete for the processing of domestic transactions in the country. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Angie's List (ANGI), which jumped 12% after the company reported it was profitable in the first quarter and announced an exclusive relationship that will see carpet manufacturer Shaw Industries give the company's members exclusive product offers. Also higher was ASML (ASML), which gained 11% after announcing that it has signed an agreement with one of its "major U.S. customers" to deliver a minimum of 15 ASML EUV, or Extreme Ultraviolet, lithography systems. Afterward, Summit Research said it thinks the most likely buyer is Intel (INTC), which the firm believes does not want to be left behind if TSMC (TSM) puts EUV to use in 10nm processing. Among the noteworthy losers was Natural Resource Partners (NRP), which dropped 19% after the company slashed its quarterly distribution by 75% to 9c per unit. Also lower following their earnings reports were ADTRAN (ADTN), which fell over 9%, Cree (CREE), which slid 9%, and Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), which declined 6%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 28.69, or 0.16%, to 17,978.28, the Nasdaq was up 6.66, or 0.13%, to 5,020.77, and the S&P 500 was up 5.24, or 0.25%, to 2,102.53.

11:16 EDTAMZNCredit Suisse's top Internet picks
Credit Suisse's top large-cap Internet picks remain Amazon.com (AMZN) for operating margin expansion and normalizing International growth, Facebook (FB) for underestimated long-term monitization potential from growing new products, and Google (GOOGL) for a slowdown in capex and narrowing of the mobile-desktop monetization gap. The firm's top small-cap picks are LinkedIn (LNKD) for the ramp of Sales Navigator and acceleration of Marketing Solutions and Yelp (YELP) because of reduced churn and increasing mobile traffic growth and ARPU.
10:31 EDTCHKAELP says McClendon did not approve Chesapeake settlement
Aubrey McClendon and American Energy Partners, LP responded to the announcement by American Energy – Utica and The Energy & Minerals Group that Chesapeake Energy (CHK) has dismissed AEU and the John Doe Defendants 1-20 from the lawsuit filed by Chesapeake on February 17. The statement read, "AEU apparently chose to settle with Chesapeake before any discovery was taken, evidently for the business purpose of mitigating further damage that Chesapeake's litigation has been having on AEU's business and financing activities. AEU has the right to resolve the case in this fashion, but this resolution should not be mistaken as reflecting an informed view of the merits of Chesapeake's claims or a concession of any liability by any party to Chesapeake. Although Mr. McClendon is a director and the single largest non-institutional shareholder in AEU, he did not approve the settlement and neither he nor AELP were advised of the negotiated terms of this settlement. AELP and Mr. McClendon will continue their efforts to have the dispute arbitrated as required by Mr. McClendon's agreements with Chesapeake. As he will show in the appropriate forum, Mr. McClendon rightfully possesses an extensive array of information about more than 16,000 wells, and the related leasehold acreage and future wells, he jointly owns with Chesapeake, including land, well, title, accounting, geological, engineering, reservoir, operating, marketing, and performance information. Mr. McClendon's well-documented agreements with Chesapeake gave him the right to own and use this information for his own purposes, including sharing it with his employees, contractors, advisors, consultants and affiliated entities."
