According to Zacks, “Amazon is one of the largest online retailers in the world. Year to date, the stock has underperformed the industry it belongs to. The company delivered strong third-quarter 2017 results beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate on both Counts. Amazon is driving value across all its businesses and especially the retail business remains very hard to beat on price, choice and convenience. Amazon 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, increased expenses and competition in online retail remains concern.”
  • 10/30/2017 – Amazon.com had its “buy” rating reaffirmed by analysts at Leerink Swann. They wrote, “unmatched scale” will certainly pose a challenge for Amazon should it enter the space, the analyst wrote (see Souda’s track record here). But it is unlikely in the first place Amazon will try to take over Thermo Fisher’s market, as this has been an ongoing on-and-off rumor for the past six years.In fact, it would be challenging for Amazon to try and take over the channel for four reasons, including:Lab supplies is a very small market at $15 billion as opposed to a $300 to $400 billion PBM market Amazon may find more lucrative.TMO’s stickiness would be very hard for anyone to break.Low-value purchase orders are streamlined to Thermo Fisher in a way that Amazon may not be able to replicate.Thermo Fisher deals with complex products that require large sales and support teams.Finally, it is difficult to imagine a scenario where Amazon supplies restriction enzymes, proteases, QPCRs, sequencing supplies, Nanodrops and LC-MS products.”We believe AMZN is fully capable of supplying orders of IT hardware and has taken share from CDW-G (the government/academic IT hardware provider) among universities and government accounts, but same cannot be said for Fisher’s catalog (Catalog LINK) just yet,”
