Amazon, eBay hit by VAT fraudsters in Britian, The Guardian reports

Amazon (AMZN) and eBay (EBAY) are dealing with VAT fraudsters illegally selling goods like iPads and laptops to British customers tax-free, The Guardian reports, citing an investigation by Guardian reporters. Amazon told the Guardian: "Marketplace sellers are independent businesses responsible for complying with their own VAT obligations." In a statement, eBay said: "If we are informed by HMRC that a seller is not complying with requirements then we will take appropriate action." Reference Link

Facebook, Amazon.com most attractive on post-election pullback, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein notes that there has been a rotation into industrial and financial stocks post-election, at the expense of multinational technology stocks. However, he sees some potential positive catalysts for "FANG" names, namely Facebook (FB), Amazon.com (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Google (GOOG; GOOGL), with the first two looking the most attractive at current levels. The analyst points out that Facebook's potential positive catalysts include faster than expected ad monetization driven by "Video First" strategy, Instagram engagement and Dynamic Product Ads. As for Amazon, he expects stable consumer spending to support a strong holiday shopping season.

eCommerce keeps taking share from offline retailers, says Piper Jaffray
Adobe released Thanksgiving and Black Friday eCommerce data over the weekend, which indicates overall eCommerce volume up 17.7% and that eCommerce continues to take significant share from offline retailers, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster tells investors in a research note. He believes the "health" of the eCommerce market is an incremental positive in the Amazon.com story. With the best eCommerce experience available, Amazon's dominance should continue into the holiday season, Munster contends. He reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares with a $900 price target.

Initial eCommerce data points show stable trends, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein says initial eCommerce data points show stable trends ahead of Cyber-Monday, after Adobe (ADBE) and ComScore (SCOR) released online retail sales data for Thanksgiving and Black Friday. The analyst notes that Adobe recorded $5.3B in online spending during the two-day period, over 18% year over year, same as last year, but points out that the company does not measure Amazon (AMZN) sales, as data reflects sales from "Adobe Marketing Cloud" clients. On the other hand, Helfstein says comScore data showed "significant" acceleration, with spending over 18% year over year to $3.3B during the two-day period.

Citi trims Amazon price target on lower AWS estimates
To reflect the reduced storage prices announced last week by Amazon Web Services, Citi analyst Mark May cut his AWS revenue and consolidated segment operating income for 2017 by 3% and 9%, respectively. The analyst, however, does not view the price reductions as an indication of competitive pressures or a threat to long-term margin outlook for AWS. May lowered his price target for Amazon.com shares to $960 from $965 and keeps a Buy rating on name. His new price target reflects 23% upside from current levels.
