AMZN Price Targets Surging Across the Board

Here’s a quick look at the price target increases analysts have announced between yesterday and today:

  • UBS – Target raised from $785 to $900
  • Pacific Crest – Target raised from $820 to $847
  • Deutsche Bank – Target raised from $900 to $985
  • Citigroup – Target raised from $780 to $870

  • Mizuho Securities – Target raised from $810 to $855

The most bullish target of $985, courtesy of Deutsche Bank, suggests a nearly 31% upside to Amazon’s Thursday closing price of $752.61. The least bullish target we’ve seen, from Pacific Crest, still suggests a meaty 12.5% upside.

Amazon’s earnings yesterday came in above estimates, with the most impressive growth seen in its AWS segment. The impressive report is clearly having a big effect on Wall Street analysts, who seemingly can’t lift their targets for the stock fast enough.

Amazon.com, Inc.(NASDAQ:AMZN) shares rose $6.73 (+0.89%) to $759.34 in Friday morning trading. The stock has now gained 12.4% year-to-date.
