Amazon is driving value across all its businesses and especially the retail business remains very hard to beat on price, choice and convenience. The company has a solid loyalty system in Prime and its FBA strategy, and content addition continues to add selection to Prime memberships. The AWS generates much higher margins than retail, so it has a very positive impact on Amazon’s profitability. Devices and IoT is also a potential growth area. However, Prime saturation in the U.S. market and competition in online retail remains concern.”

The Company has made a number of muscle moves in retail (Prime Wardrobe, Whole Foods, Kenmore appliances) that will serve as long-term growth drivers. FC growth in 2H16 likely pressured fulfillment expense, but revenue growth is likely similar to 1Q.””
