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.

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%.
