Amazon.com got price target hikes from several analysts.
The coronavirus pandemic has boosted the company’s performance, as consumers stuck at home are doing their shopping online.
Bank of America boosted its price target on the e-commerce company’s shares to $3,280 from $3,000. Wells Fargo hiked its target to $3,600 from $3,000.
Wedbush increased the target to $3,500 from $3,050. “Covid-19 and the stay-at-home response for many consumers should result in substantial revenue upside in Q2, with the company’s burgeoning grocery business likely a key driver,” Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter wrote.
Pachter further wrote, “despite our optimism on top-line performance in Q2, we need to see the profitability trends and operating leverage (if any) highlighted in Q2 results and Q3 guidance (and potentially beyond) before we adjust our EBITDA estimates for future periods”.
