What prospects for the Amazon stock?

Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter believes Amazon has room to regain strength on the stock exchange and points to a price target of $ 4,300, well above the current $ 3,376 (as of the close of 26/10). The analyst is optimistic about Amazon’s e-commerce business after the company experienced a sharp slowdown in online sales growth in the second quarter disappointing investors. Driving it should be a mix of factors (seasonal trends, e-commerce share gains, a recovering economy and strong demand for advertisers).

Among the question marks there is certainly the decline in advertising activity recently reported by the social media company Snap which could have a negative impact on Amazon as well.

There is one among those who are a little less optimistic about Amazon today Swiss credit which sees a 26% upside opportunity in Amazon stock after lowering its price target to $ 4,200. The Swiss business firm believes compliance costs will be a problem for the e-commerce giant until the end of 2021 and into 2022. “E-commerce margins (hence earnings as well) could decline due to wage increases and a more inflated compliance infrastructure ”.
