05:54 EDTAMZNAmazon.com upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS
UBS analyst Eric Sheridan upgraded Amazon.com to Buy from Neutral citing the growth of the company's Prime subscriber base. In a research note titled "Completing The Checkout," Sheridan says the "fast growing and higher spending" Prime subscriber base has raised the significance of Prime eligible items, driving greater penetration of the Fulfillment by Amazon business. This will result in increased annual spend per customer and ultimately higher levels of gross merchandise value for Amazon, the analyst writes. He raised his price target for the online retailing giant to $550 from $450. Amazon shares closed Monday up $12.06 to 455.57.
