Stephen Ju reiterated his “buy” rating on the tech behemoth this morning and raised his price objective to $215 which suggests a more than 25% upside from here. 

His bullish call on Amazon stock arrives only days before the multinational is scheduled to report its financial results for the first quarter. 

Investor focus for 1Q24 has broadened into looking at total franchise revenue and operating income vs more narrowly on AWS, particularly as growth has rebounded from 2Q23-3Q23 trough.

Note that $AMZN is already up nearly 20% versus its year-to-date low in early January.
