What Investors Need to Watch for in Amazon (AMZN) Earnings

Today’s video takes a closer look at one of the most important e-commerce companies out there, Amazon (AMZN). 

However, Amazon isn’t really just an e-commerce company anymore, as AMZN is getting into a number of different areas such the cloud, in addition to expanding its supply chain and developing out other products like media and its Amazon Echo. 

All these different areas make AMZN difficult to predict, and that is why analysts have been so far off the mark when it comes to recent reports. Still, we take a look at some of the key metrics for AMZN shares heading into this crucial earnings release in order to get a few more clues for investors.

In addition to recent growth and value metrics, we discuss the path forward for Amazon and its track record in earnings season. To top things off, we also take a look at recent earnings estimate revisions for Amazon, and how this could be a harbinger of things to come in the next report. 

Either way, AMZN remains more of a long term story, though we are very likely to see some volatility for Amazon shares to close out the week, no matter what happens with the report after the bell on Thursday. 

Make sure to watch our short video for a more in-depth discussion of Amazon, and make sure to check out some of our other recent videos for earnings analysis!
