Wal-Mart boosts e-commerce investment to compete with Amazon.com, Reuters says

Wal-Mart (WMT) is accelerating its investment in e-commerce to increase competition with Amazon.com (AMZN) and to give it an even more dominant position against the rest of the retailers, Reuters reports. Wal-Mart is now on schedule to double the number of giant warehouses dedicated to online sales to 10 by the end of 2016, according to Justen Traweek, vice-president of e-commerce supply chain and fulfillment. That pace is faster than the 8 large warehouses that industry consultants expected Wal-Mart to build by the end of 2017, the report added. Reference Link

Amazon.com unit growth tracking better than expectations, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster says his firm's analysis of Google search trends indicates Amazon.com's unit growth is tracking up 25%-27% in the September quarter versus expectations of 23%-26%. Munster estimates that the overall global e-commerce market growth is approximately 15%, which he believes suggests that Amazon is gaining "material market share." The analyst continues to view Amazon as the best positioned stock in his coverage universe over the next five years. He maintains an Overweight rating on the shares with a $900 price target.

Amazon.com price target raised to $950 from $800 at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak raised Amazon.com's price target to $950 from $800 to reflect the continued ramp in Prime subscribers. The analyst said Amazon's Prime subscribers are now at 60M members and he expects Prime subscriber spending to be approximately 4.5X that of non-Prime users. Nowak raised his 2017 CSOI estimate by 4% to $530M to reflect a larger gross profit pool that more than offsets higher streaming content costs and a large expected fulfillment build in 2017. The analyst recommends buying Amazon on any investor sentiment swings due to potential below Street Q1 2017 guidance in January and maintains his Overweight rating.

Amazon.com price target raised to $850 from $800 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Robert Peck continues to think Amazon will benefit from the Prime flywheel, higher third-party adoption, and secular Web Services growth, but he keeps a Neutral rating on the stock, citing the positive assumptions already "baked into" Street expectations, rising competition, its high capital intensity and tough comps. The analyst raised his price target on Amazon shares to $850 from $800.

Reported VMware pact with Amazon a positive, says MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Kevin Buttigieg noted the Fortune report claiming that VMware (VMW) will soon announce a cloud partnership with Amazon Web Services (AMZN). Such an agreement with Amazon would be positive for VMware, as it will signal their confidence in their ability to sell software for use on-premise and underscore a belief that public cloud is unlikely to assume all workloads. The firm has a Buy rating on VMware shares.
