Trump's attacks on Amazon are personal, WSJ reports

White house officials gave President Trump presentations and briefings early in his term to debunk his concerns that Amazon was shirking taxes and exploiting the U.S. Postal Service, however that has not stopped Trump from persistently attacking the company, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing people close to the White House. Trump seemingly has a personal vendetta against the online giant's CEO Jeff Bezos, who owns the Washington Post, as he feels the newspaper's coverage of him has been unfair. Reference Link

AutoZone upgraded to Outperform at Wedbush
As previously reported, Wedbush analyst Seth Basham upgraded AutoZone (AZO) to Outperform from Neutral on the basis of more reasonable investor margin expectations, continued relative comp outperformance due to solid execution and appropriate investments, an improving industry outlook for spring/summer, a more benign near-term Amazon (AMZN) threat and attractive valuation. The analyst also raised his price target on AutoZone's shares to $750 from $670.

Automation the next 'cloud wars' battle, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Brent Bracelin says the AWS Summit SF exposed an even greater focus by Amazon (AMZN) Web Services on cloud automation. The analyst believes the "cloud wars" in 2018 appear to be moving from a battle of "features" seen in the last two years toward a new battle of "automation." Bracelin sees Automation as having three major benefits for AWS: it can drive material cost savings, it saves developers time, and it serves as a competitive differentiator versus Microsoft Azure (MSFT) and Google Cloud (GOOG; GOOGL). Bracelin reiterates a Sector Weight rating on Amazon's shares.

Morgan Stanley says online tax legislation probable, but manageable for Amazon
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak weighed in on the tax and USPS debates facing Amazon (AMZN) following the President's recent tweets, saying that he sees online sales tax legislation as probable, but also believe it is manageable for the company. On the issue, he thinks this isn't new for Amazon and if anything sees it as a bigger risk to eBay (EBAY) and third party sellers. On the company's relationship with the USPS, Nowak said he views it as mutually beneficial and while he see the USPS asking for higher rates he also expect negotiations to be "rational." If the USPS asks for material increases, Amazon may be forced to increase its 2018/2019 last mile build, which is likely to weigh on near-term profitability, added Nowak, who keeps an Overweight rating and $1,500 price target on the stock.

Amazon contract profitable for USPS, former Postmaster General tells UBS
UBS hosted an expert call with Patrick Donahoe, former Postmaster General at the USPS, given confusion around rhetoric coming out of Washington D.C. regarding Amazon's relationship with the USPS, and press reports indicating this contract expires in October 2018. On the call, Donahoe unequivocally stated that the Amazon contract is profitable for the USPS, UBS said. The firm pointed out that USPS business is primarily split into two areas, namely market-dominant products/"monopoly mail," and competitive products where Amazon would fall. By law, competitive products must cover their costs, including both operating costs associated with the service provided and an allocation of 5.5% of the USPS's institutional/fixed costs, the firm added in a research note this morning.
