13:12 EDTJDEarnings 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 Amazonís 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 companyís 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 companyís 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 companyís 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 companyís 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 companyís Q1 earnings report, Amazon was upgraded at Monness Crespi citing a the release of results for Amazonís Web Service segment. The firm called it a "catalytic event" outside of the companyís "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%.
