If one stock analyst is right, Amazon shares are just getting started on their ascent.
Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter said this week that he thinks Amazon's stock will be worth $2,000 to $3,000 in the next 10 years.
Amazon will be the first company with a $1 trillion market cap and it's on its way to $1 trillion revenue, too, Pachter said. He currently rates the company as "buy" with a $1,200 price target.
"They know what they want to be when they grow up and they're doing everything to get there," Pachter said. But the only setback could be government intervention.
Whats Hot On TheStreet
Money is just being given away: Warren Buffett donated roughly $3.17 billion of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK.A) (BRK.B) stock earlier this week to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and four family charities.
It is the 86-year-old billionaire's largest contribution in his plan to give away his fortune. In 2010, Buffett, Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) co-founder Bill Gates and his wife created The Giving Pledge, a project that encourages billionaires to give more than half of their wealth to philanthropy. TheStreet takes a look at some of the wealthiest people who have pledged to give their money to charity when all is said and done.
A return of a bothersome issue for Walmart: Beginning in 2013, reports began circulating that Walmart Stores Inc. (WMT) was dealing with an out-of-stock issue at its stores nationwide.
At the time, Walmart attributed the problem to a reduction in employees as it worked to cut costs. Fast forward to 2017, and the issue appears to be resurfacing, reports TheStreet's Lindsay Rittenhouse.
The purchase of Square would give PayPal increased acceptance with bricks and mortar retailers, Loop Capital analyst Joseph Vafi writes in a new note. All in, the deal would further PayPal's efforts to become a "true, two sided network," according to Vafi.
Vafi estimates PayPal would be able to pay a 30% premium for Square, valuing the company at more than $12 billion using current prices.
Tesla gets some more love: Shark Tank Star Kevin O'Leary said Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk is a modern day Michelangelo. "He is a genius - I can't say enough good things about what he does for all sectors that he gets involved in," O'Leary told TheStreet's Scott Gamm in an interview.
Although to be fair, O'Leary is more fond of Tesla's product than its stock.
"I'm an investor and at the end of the day, I look at each opportunity to put money in harms way - one stock at a time and that's not a stock I own," he said. O'Leary is also the Chairman of O'Shares ETF Investments.
