Amazon.com (AMZN) Stock Hits All-Time High, Still a Good Long-Term Investment - TheStreet

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Amazon.com (AMZN) - Get Report hit another all-time high today, meaning now is not the best time to buy it, but you should try to snatch it up when it dips, Surevest Wealth Management CEO Robert Luna said on CNBC's "Closing Bell" Friday afternoon.

"Since it's already at such lofty levels, make the case for buying it here," CNBC's Kelly Evans said. 

"If you're going to invest in Amazon in the next three months there's probably a case to be made that you hold off on it a little bit because the stock has had a nice run," Luna admitted. 

However, Amazon still looks good long-term and will probably reach a $1,000 stock price in the next 18 months, he claimed. 

The company is 22 years old, but still seeing significant growth in revenue and active users, he noted. "That's enviable even for a company like Twitter (TWTR), which can't achieve those types of numbers," Luna explained. 

In addition, Amazon's third party units are increasing, he noted. This is a result of the rest of retail realizing that in the future, all retail will go through Amazon, Luna claimed. 

"This is a company that's reinvented the marketplace," he concluded.
