Amazon.com received a price-target hike from Citi analysts.
The analysts boosted their target for the e-commerce company’s stock to a Wall Street high of $3,550 from $2,700. They cited what they believe is an pandemic-driven dominance of digital sales.
Citi analyst Jason Bazinet said that while his team anticipate total U.S. retail sales in 2022 to be 1% above 2019 levels ,they expect e-commerce to increase 43% while brick-and-mortar retail to fall 4%. If that holds up, Amazon's prospect potentially gets boosted.
Bazinet expects Amazon to have 43% of the domestic e-commerce market by 2022, up from 38% in 2019, and almost 7% of total U.S. retail sales by 2022, up from 4% last year.
