Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) is scheduled to report its Q2 on July 25. The company’s Q1 had come ahead of consensus expectations on revenue (+17% y-o-y) and EPS (+$2.44 per share). Going into Q2, we will be looking for updates around:

  • Incremental growth from same day delivery for Prime members
  • Management commentary around the $10-billion JEDI contract to be awarded by the Pentagon.
  • Commentary around how Oracle’s partnership with Microsoft to enable interoperability across the Gen2 and Azure platforms could impact Amazon Web Services going forward.
  • Growth in streaming, expansion across other brick and mortar formats, shift in advertising budgets from traditional online advertisers to Amazon and management perspective (if any) on potentially spinning off AWS into a separate entity.

Trefis estimates Amazon’s valuation to be $2,056 per share, which is slightly above the current market price. We capture trends in Amazon’s Earnings over recent quarters in an interactive dashboard along with our forecast for full-year 2019.
