Amazon.com (AMZN) Stock Price Target Raised to $1,000 at JPMorgan - TheStreet

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Amazon.com (AMZN) - Get Report were up in pre-market trading on Tuesday after JPMorgan increased its price target to $1,000 from $925 on the stock.

"We believe Amazon continues to show strong ability to take share of overall eCommerce, and its flexibility in pushing first-party versus third-party inventory is a major advantage compared with other retailers," the firm wrote in a note released earlier today.

The e-commerce giant remains a "share gain story" in electronics and general merchandise as well as media, and the company's recent Amazon Web Services disclosure demonstrates that segment profitability surpassed expectations, JPMorgan added.

The firm has an "overweight" rating on shares of the Seattle-based company.

Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates the stock as a "buy" with a ratings score of B-.

Amazon.com's strengths such as its impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, robust revenue growth, expanding profit margins and good cash flow from operations outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.
